Abstract : A formula is developed and justified for calculating holding costs for stock held for several years. Input is holding cost rates already available. It is shown that true holding costs over a multi-year time span are significantly smaller than would be calculated by a linear projection of single year holding cost rates, i.e. by multiplying the single year rates by the number of years stock is to be held.
