Highest In, First Out (HIFO),

What Does Highest In, First Out (HIFO) Mean?

HIST in First Out (HIFO) is a method of allocating and accumulating inventory that first uses cost inventory or removes it from inventory. This will affect the company's books so that in a given period of time, the price of the goods sold (COGS) will be as high as possible and the closing stock will be as low as possible.

  • One of the most expensive ways to calculate a company's inventory by removing the most expensive items from the inventory is HIFO.
  • HIFO inventory helps reduce a company's taxable income because it costs the most to sell.
  • HIFOs are rarely used and are not recognized by common accounting methods and guidelines such as GAAP or IFRS.
