    Hello! Your Website is great.

    I have a question. I have a Steel Industry where we buy raw materials and make some products and sell it as a new product.

    My question is , when we buy raw material and use them to make a new product the balance sheet is all messed up. And the stock remains as i sell only the made product. Hope you understood what i wanted to explain.
