    Stock turnover in days is

    Closing stock / purchases of raw materials x 365 = x days

    so for SP2000 60000/(540000-60000) x 365 = 40.56 days


    Return on Net Assets is to work out the % of Net Assets that is earned in Profit.

    Profit / Net Assets x 100 = x%

    414000 / 2014000 x 100 = 20.56%

    I have worked out this formula given by Garry, but I get 45.63 days.

    I've tried the same method with SP3000 and get 91.25 days

    Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? :001_unsure:

    I haven't looked at the paper but the answer is worked out on the following:

    60,000 / 540,000 x 365 = 40.56 days


    As I said, this is an answer to how 40.56 days was worked out, not an answer to the original question.

    Thanks for the reply Lou. I couldn't work this one out. I kept on getting a different answer than the one printed in the AAT exam answers paper.

    I'm still a bit puzzled though. Is the stock turnover in days worked out differently for raw materials? In my BPP book it mentions Average Stock/Cost of Sales x 365 days but does not mention the type of stock. :001_unsure:

    In this question, the Direct Materials figure is being used instead of the Cost of Sales figure.

    Thanks
