Your Ask Joey ™ Answer

In a consignment relationship, would the consignor record commission expense in cost of goods sold or in operating expenses?

Commission expense is a selling expense for the consignor, so it would typically be recorded in operating expenses and not cost of goods sold. The commission expense would be recorded when the consignee sells the product to a 3rd party and the consignor recognizes the revenue.
