On 28th February 20X3, goods valued at selling price of Shs 6 million were marked-up by a further 40% of cost price. 75% of these goods were sold in the year ended 30th June 20X3. The remaining 25% were held in stock at 30th June 20X3.  Sales for the year ended 30th June 20X3 amounted to Shs 16.8 million. Write up the Branch Stock and the Branch Mark-up accounts.


It can be seen that if goods are sold at a price in excess of the normal selling price, an additional profit is earned.  Goods may be sold at a price in excess of the normal selling price without authority from the HO; if this occurs, the credit side of the branch stock account exceeds the debit side by the amount of the additional profits.
