If sales are used, it overstates the calculated turnover. Additionally, the inventory should be averaged and not just use the one figure from the balance sheet. I hope this helps.Tom, yes it helps and thank you for your input. I am averaging inventory over two reporting periods since this was suggested in one of the financial books I'm reading. However, since it wasn't proposed by TMF, I wasn't sure of its "accuracy". You've validated it for me - thanks!Karen :)
