I run an online fabric store. Throughout the year, I buy fabrics from various sources. Sometimes I might just purchase a very small amount in order to see whether it sells well not. When determining the cost of goods sold, should I strictly use the original price of each product I sold or can I use an average unit price to determine the material cost? Using an average price is quite convenient for me, as I usually do not purchase the material if it is more than a specific price. Thanks.
You can use cost or any other method approved by the IRS which clearly reflects your income (including a rolling-average).
Can I understand that yes, I can use the average unit price to determine the cost of products sold? I prefer not to read the IRS rules if there is a clear answer for it. Thanks.
