Manufacturing & Trading P&L

I notice in Osborne books for ECR there is a chapter on the above but none of our lectures have been on this subject and none of the exam papers I have done so far (all but two) ask questions on this topic.

Is it possible it may come up at some point in an exam, even just a question on what goes where??

I'll be revising it never the less!

    I read up on this yesturday myself its pretty straight forward but have been through all the exam papers i havnt seen it once (but there is always the chance it might come up) i had the same thing happen last year with the FRA my tutor didnt cover a question luckly i had looked it in it.

    I think it's just a case of your cost of goods sold being composed of different things:

    Manufacturer: direct materials, direct labour, direct expenses

    Trader: purchases

    There is the issue of manufacturing profit so that you can see if your production process is profitable - goes on and comes off later - just need to review that too I think.

    It seems it wasn't in the syllabus until the past few years and then it wasn't tested so the colleges moaned about that, so then it got tested! I think it would be risky strategy not to revise it!!!
