Closing Stock is always what is on hand on the date of closure of books. It is supposed to be physical but not book value. Hence question of deduction will not arise. If shortage, if is material or abnormal if not reflected in books, it will impact Gross Profit of the Unit. Hence, you have to show Loss on debit side of Profit and Loss Account and show the same amount in Credit Side of Profit and Loss Account under Sales or Other Income, whether it is mandatory or not.
