Cost-value Reconciliation: Module Five

In house training only - please call for cost – 1 day course

This module focuses on the contractor’s cost-value reconciliation. Topics include development of the allowance bill from the tender, preparation of the internal valuation, the valuation of work in progress, the evaluation of subcontract liabilities and the reconciliation of attributable costs at the reporting date. The relationship of the cost-value reconciliation to the contractor’s tender and to the annual accounts is explored as are SSAP9 and relevant accounting standards and practice. Complimentary workshop sessions will be held in which delegates will work on defined tasks in small teams under tutor supervision.
