Thank you for your question..

You need to relate purchases for sales..

Please advise what is your gross margin/mark up on average?

Many thanks.

I'm afraid I don't know for sure I believe it's 20% depreciation. I am picking up on this as someone has gone off sick. The previous years figures were sales £45,482 opening stock £25,420 Cost of sales including opening stock £104,490 which gave them (28,620) in that column and overall a (30,388) bot***** *****ne - does that help! Thank you.....

Thank you for your reply

Based on information provided by you, it appears your gross margin is 66.8%

If one were to apply the same percentage then the gross profit will be c. £8,864 and cost of sales £4,406.

You have stated your cost of sales including opening stock is £103,506 and for last year it was £104,490.

These are too high numbers for modest sales figures you have shown.

Please check your numbers and come back .

Many thanks
