The valuation is generally done at cost or market price that ever is lower. The Stock of goods in hand on the end of accounting year is termed as Closing Stock. Likewise, closing stock may contain stock of raw material, work in progress and finished goods. The closing stock is demonstrated on the credit side of the Trading Account.
