For stock valuation purposes International Accounting Standard No. (2) two define cost being such expenditure that has been incurred in the normal course of business in bringing the product or service to its recent situation and location.

Costs of conversion involve production overheads and other overheads attributable in the specific circumstances of the business in bringing the product or service to its recent location and situation
