Free
Essay
Answer:

Answer:

Income statement
Income statement is the detailed record of financial transaction of a firm/company over a given time period. This helps in calculating and determining the net income/loss for the given period of time.
However, most of the items or particulars of income statements of both the retailer and manufacturer remain same but there are differences. Such difference is noticed in the calculation of Cost of goods sold. Procedure of arriving at net income figure is however same i.e., subtracting expenses/losses from income/gain.
Calculation of cost of goods sold is complex in nature in case of manufacturing company. The main reason behind this is the inventories which is maintained at different stages of production by manufacturer namely, raw material inventory, work-in-progress inventory, and finished goods inventory. Costing of such types of inventories is not required to be maintained by the retailer as they get finished goods from manufacturers to be sold to the final consumers.
Calculation of cost of goods sold in manufacturer's income statement considers two elements namely, cost of goods manufactured and cost of goods available for sale. In other words, "purchase" element of retailer's income statement is replaced by "cost of goods manufactured" in manufacturer's income statement.
Other than this, there are manufacturing overheads and related costs in manufacturer income statement whereas retailer's income statement considers expenses such as selling and distribution expenses and other administrative expenses. This is because retailers are not engaged in any kind of manufacturing rather more focused on selling and distributing the final goods.
