      Colm you can't do them because we have a terrible teacher and I find the trading profit and loss a/c's hard also.

      I hope this helps... (Start of formula)

      1. Sales (find it in the question)

      2.Cost of sales: (Memory Aid: OPICCC)

      Opening Stock


      Import Duties

      Carriage inwards

      Cost of goods available for sale

      (Less) Closing Stock

      Cost of goods sold

      Gross Profit (Sales minus cost of goods sold)

      3.Less Expenditure

      You'll just have to learn off all the expenses unfortunately!

      Net Profit (Gross Profit minus total expense

      Less Dividends
