WHAT IS FOB?
With terms of FOB (Free On Board) shipping point the title to the goods usually passes to the buyer at the shipping point. This means that goods in transit should be reported as a purchase and as inventory by the buyer. The seller should report a sale and an increase in accounts receivable. For example, “FOB ECCO Machinery (Surrey, BC)” indicates that the seller will pay for the cost of loading the goods on to a transportation truck. The buyer pays for all costs beyond that point (including unloading at their facility). Responsibility for the goods is with the seller until the goods are loaded on to a transportation truck. Once the machine is on board, the buyer assumes the risk.
We usually provide our quotations FOB ECCO Machinery (Surrey, BC). If you prefer we can also provide you with a freight rate FOB “Your Door” which will be prepaid and charged on the same invoice as the machinery being transported.
