If you order 2000 items each time an order is placed, then 6000 items can be bought in 3 orders
Cost: 3 x £20 per order = £60.00
The average stock will be 2000/2 = 1000 units which are held in stock at 20% of the purchase price per unit (at this level of order the price is £1.14 so the holding cost per unit per year is £0.228)
1000 X £0.228 = £228.00
This sort of question would also need you to build in the price paid for the stock being bought: 6,000 x £1.14 = £6,840.00
The idea of lowering holding cost per unit merely because the price paid has a discount has often made me smile, I understand the theory; lower insurance etc. But have you really experienced a change to your storage costs simply because the price was lower?)Sandy
