According to this concept, “we can book only those transactions in our accounting record which can be measured in monetary terms.”
Determine and book the value of stock of the following items:
Shirts Rs 5,000/-
Pants Rs 7,500/-
Coats 500 pieces
Jackets 1000 pieces
Value of Stock = ?
Here, if we want to book the value of stock in our accounting record, we need the value of coats and jackets in terms of money. Now if we conclude that the values of coats and jackets are Rs 2,000 and Rs 15,000 respectively, then we can easily book the value of stock as Rs 29,500 (as a result of 5000+7500+2000+15000) in our books. We need to keep quantitative records separately.
