Tax First November issue

Treatment of trading stock at year end for Income Tax purposes

If you have stock on hand at year end, what kind of stock is it? Does it consist of items you purchased for sale or items you purchased to be used in the manufac-turing process? If yes, the cost of these items are automatically included in your taxable income as part of your cost of sales calculations and no tax adjustment is required.

If no, refer to the consumables and spares discussion below. Please note that the principles discussed here are NOT applicable to farming operations.
