Unless you are a sole trader or in a partnership using the Cash Basis then you must in lude the value of any WIP in your accounts.

Have you got any work in progress? or Stock? Are the values material?
Unless you are on cash basis, and therefore no creditors or debtors either you need to ask the question and value them.

The legal requirements follows the requirement to prepare accounts within the parameters of accounting standards.

1. Step one is to determine which set of accounting standards are being followed
2.Step two is follow these standards re recognition and valuation of stock and work in progress.
