Just to make sure I'm understanding the math correctly, a simple example:
If beginning inventory and ending inventory are the same, whether zero or not, the bottom line would be the same as if all COGS were expensed instead, right?
Also, would you consider the following costs COGS? I wouldn't think so.
1. Shipping of the finished product to the customer.
2. Royalty payments (where a small percentage of the sale goes to a third party).
