The normal accounting profit may not be synonymous with the real profit. There are different methods of depreciation and valuation of stocks, and the figure for profit will vary according to which of these methods are used. Conventional methods of depreciation and valuation tend to over-state profit in times of rising prices, and understate it in times of falling prices. The inclusion of overhead costs in the valuation of closing stocks of work-in-progress for a particular year will lead to a higher figure for profit than would be the case if these are excluded. The method of taxation affects business behaviour and the level of investment.
