Appendix 5A
One key difference in the two systems is when the cost of goods sold. In periodic, revenues from the
sale of merchandise are recorded when sales are made, in the same way as perpetual. However, on the
sale date, perpetual also allocates the cost of goods sold and the merchandise.
Under a periodic system, purchases of merchandise are made in an expense account Purchases rather
than merchandise. Freight costs, purchases returns and allowance, and purchase discounts are all
separate accounts.
