I am working through the Financial statements sample assessment 2, question 1.5. But I am having trouble figuring this question out. The answer is £54,000. But I cannot figure out how to come to this answer. Can anybody help?

I'm looking at all my notes and I can't work out the answer either.0

I don't know if this is right but from what I gather....
A B
Sale £18,000 
COS (£10,000) + (£6,000) < still in stock 18000 x 1/3
Profit £8,000
£70,000  £16,000 = £54,000

In the question, it says there is a quarter left in the inventory which is 1/4 if I'm not mistaken?
You have calculated it as 1/3!0 
Damn your right then I don't know...I'll ask my tutor to explain and let you know.0

I've spent more hours on it and I'm wondering whether it's £70,000  minus the CoS of £10,000 and minus £6,000 as (£8,000 of profit x 3/4 that's been sold)???0

1. Eliminate the interco sale: dr sales, cr CoS £18k.
2. Provision for unrealised profit  the value of goods remaining in inventory in the books of B Limited is 1/4 x £18k (as that is the cost to = £4.5k. However the actual cost of the goods to the GROUP is 1/4 x £10k (as that is what it cost to bring them into the group) = £2.5k.
This means that the £2k difference is unrealised profit  although A is recognising the profit, the goods haven't yet been sold outside the group and therefore from the group's perspective no profit has yet been made on those unsold goods. Inventory value should therefore be decreased by this £2k so it represents cost to the group rather than to B  dr closing stock in the P&L (part of CoS), cr inventories in the balance sheet.
Net effect on CoS: £70k  £18k + £2k = £54k.2
