I have one interview question related to entries..Why in all 3 types of purchases inventory account is getting hit even for expense items in receiving transaction of receipt. It will help me if you can explain..Thank you in advance.


Inventory account is getting offset in expense and asset related transactions. Only in actual inventory transaction the item value is transferred to an Inventory account. Hope I was able to clarify
