For Linda:

in the buyer's records, the purchase of merchandise on account would:
increase assets and increase liabilities

Im not clear on tis one,

Why does it increase assets? the buyer is incurring a cost.
Inventory is an asset for the buyer (as buyer will derive future benefits from it when sold) and the since he purchasing it on Account hence liabilites will increase. When this purchased inventory will be sold only then it would become cost but till then its an asset.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
for linda:

I understand the first part of your response but you also say when it is sold it becomes a cost, is it also catagorized as revenue or owners equity once it is sold and a profit is realized?
See here you are talking in terms of accouting equation.

Let assume you purchased invetory for $200. (The asset is $200)

Now you sold it for $250 cash. (Here you received cash of $250 but your other asset is reduced by $200 but there is difference of $50 ...read further)

Now to calculate profit we subtract expenses from revenue. From above the revenue is $250 and inventory sold for $200 would be treated as cost.
(Hence now inventory sold is treated as cost)

So profit = 250- 200 = $50 (This $50 would be the part of owner equity)

I hope this help.
