Explain stock valuation, Cost Accounting

G. Mills was appointed a local agent for the High Power Mobile Workshop Bolt (HPMW-B) on 1 April 2009. The HPMW-B is manufactured by Mobile Equipment Ltd (MEL). The company charges its agents an annual service charge of $10,000 payable in advance each year on 1 April. In addition, agents pay MEL a commission of 5% of the gross profit on all sales.

During the past two years the demand for HPMW-B increased. At the same time, MEL had some raw material shortages and production difficulties. This led to a number of price increases in the manufacturer's price of the HPMW-B. However, the agents decided it would be unwise to pass these increased costs to their customers. Accordingly, throughout 2009 and 2010, a selling price of $52,000 per HPMW-B was maintained by the agents.

G. Mills' transactions up to 31 December 2010 are summarised as follows:
