The answer is 1

  1. Correct – The net realisable value of an item of stock is its actual or estimated selling price less all further costs to completion and all costs to be incurred in marketing, selling and distributing the item. In this case, this is £1,600 – £110 – £130 = £1,360. According to IAS / GAAP, when the NRV of an item is less than its cost, the item should be valued at its NRV, i.e. £1,360.
  2. Not correct
  3. Not correct
  4. Not correct
