I have been given a question and I am having a senior moment and have gone toally blank and need help:
"no entries have yet been made for closing inventory as at 31st March 20X7. It has been valued at sales prices of £16875. The sale price of goods is always 35% higher than the cost of the goods."

What is the journal entries I need to do?

    So you would need to work out the value of inventory so if its been marked up 35% of purchase prices it would be £16,875 / 135 * 100 = £12,500 then you would do you journal entries to for the p&l & balance sheet.

    Journal entries would be
    Debit - statement of financial position £12,500
    Credit - statement of profit and loss £12,500

    Hope that helps.
