Comments

New Car Sales for each respective Division should be posted in the accounts as indicated in the current TB Edit file.

 

The selling price is credited to the Sales account and the inventory value, is posted to the corresponding Cost of Sales account.

 

Dealer installed Accessories sold by the New Vehicle Department should be recorded in Account 457, Accessories.

 

Each vehicle sale should be recorded at actual selling price.  Actual selling price means the selling price to the customer less discounts and overallowances.

 

The manufacturer will designate the account number to assign to each model of vehicles sold as indicated in the table above.

 

Each vehicle sale should be costed individually.  The cost of a new vehicle is defined in the Asset section under Vehicle Inventories (New Vehicles).

 

The cost of the vehicle should be determined from the Factory Invoice or other Vehicle Inventory record.  If any items have not been posted to this record, refer to underlying repair orders and invoices to determine the vehicle’s cost.

 

Factory price reductions, which occur after the sales of vehicles, are reductions of cost and should be credited to the appropriate vehicle cost of sales account.

Note:

New vehicles transferred to other authorized GM dealers are not sales and should not be recorded in these sales and cost of sales accounts.  Sales and exchanges of new vehicles between GM dealerships should be recorded as inventory transfers, at the vehicle inventory value, through the applicable new vehicle inventory accounts.
