Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the ending inventory for the previous year was correctly counted and valued, but that the inventory balance as at 30 June 2010 was under-valued by $90,000.

2. Determine the effect of the inventory errors on the company’s balance sheets over the total time period. Include in your answer the cumulative impact on the company’s retained profits/earnings.
