I am trying to help a mate out, he is running a bar in Germany and has recently been told that it is making to much money because the bar is making more than 15% profit on the stock. For example he sells 1000 Euro worth of stock for 1200 so has made a profit of 20%. However when I used to run a bar over in Germany both the RAO and the QM calculated the profit after taking out expenses, such as buying a new fridge, TV even plastic glasses. For example I sold 1000 Euro worth of stock for 1200 but also bought some pool cues for 50 euro so only made 15% overall. Was the way I was doing it complying with army rules or were my officers turning a blind eye as the regiment was benefiting?
