    Stock should be valued at the lower of cost and Net Realisable Value so therefore :

    Cost = £ 2.20
    NRV = £ 3.00 - £ 1.00 = £ 2.00

    As NRV is lower than cost the stock is valued as 500 x £ 2.00 = £ 1,000.00

    Remember that Net Realisable Value means selling cost less any costs incurred to bring the item to their saleable status.
