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.
The auditor, concerned at these errors, decides to carry out a thorough investigation (audit) as to the inventory values shown in the company’s financial statements during its six-year history. The following additional errors were detected:

(i) as at 30 June 2009, inventory was over-valued by $15,000

(ii) as at 30 June 2008, inventory was under-valued by $55,000

Required :

1. Determine the effects that these errors have had on the company’s profit figures in each year, beginning in the year ended 30 June 2008.

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.
