  • "Emergency buying" in smaller quantities
  • Alteration in the market price of direct material
  • Carriage, freight and other charges absorbed in place of being charged to the suppliers
  • Cash discount not availed
  • Claims not made on the suppliers for short receipt of materials or substandard materials.
