i want to know whether import duty, custom clearance charges and inland haulage charges are to be included while valuing the closing stock where purchase are exclusive of import duty,custom charges and inland haulage charges in case of trading proprietorship firm. plz reply soon


Dear,
Closing Stock is valued at cost or market price which ever is less.

So if goods is imported than stock is valued at landed cost i.e. all expenses upto the reaching of goods at factory gate.

Althogh Customs duty on which CENVAT is allowed will not to be added in cost.

How is the Value of Closing Stock Ascertained?

• Physical Stock
Closing stock is the stock/goods unsold at the end of the accounting period.
The details relating to the physical stock would be readily available with the organisation only if the inventory records are being maintained by the organisation. In other cases the physical stock would have to be ascertained by stock taking.

• Stock Value
There is no specific ledger account in financial accounting that would give us the information relating to the value of closing stock ready hand.
The value of closing stock is available ready hand only if inventory records are being maintained that too from the inventory records.

The value of Closing Stock is ascertained by Physical Verification of Stock on the last day of the accounting period and its valuation at Cost or Market Price (Net Realisable Value) whichever is lesser


This is the most common method for valuing the closing stock.

The information relating to the value of closing stock is not regularly required by the organisation. It is however required at the end of the accounting period for the purpose of evaluation of the Cost of Goods Sold.
