that entry will be only reflected in stock register and will be refllected in quantitative informations given in as per schedule vi in Balance sheet. That total quantity of goods sold plus goods given free of cost. so that figures could be reconcialed with stock register.

I think, there is should be no financial entry in the books of accounts. Free sample given is to be treated like to quantity discount. It should be reflected in quantitative statement of tax audit report and in schedule VI informations.

Hi,

The entry has to be

Sales Promotion / Gift A/c Debit 

      To Purchases  Credit

Accounting treatement by Mr. Joseph Alexander, will infleate Sales figure. But actually there is no sales involvement. 

Thanks, V. Sakthivelan

Not only this matter, but also every matter and transaction unless it have no value, the entries must be pass. For the correct closing stock this entry must be needed.

entry is

Sales Promotion expense   A/c

To Sales A.c
