Why is freight in or freight out not included in this formula? Should it be? Some sources on the internet say yes & others say no. What is your opinion?

Does this work the same way for accrual tax returns? I have a CPA telling me I should no be deducting ending inventory or that I should be including the increase in inventory as part of the purchases. I can not find anything that says that and he wants me to amend three years of tax returns.
