assets under construction

The most likely assets involved are those under construction, Property, Plant and Equipment, for which separate disclosure needs to be made. Accounting management is likely to run from proper keeping of a Fixed assets Register; controls on recording, on physical inspection,of identification.

TT Thank you. I am adjusting slowly to the complete degradation of good accounting concepts and more importantly,language, that is the legacy of the awful nineties. Running scared,I have quoted page 1197 (sic) of Wiley's GAAP 2008, G c"Assets under construction and not in service" rather than "Fixed assets" which is the historical accuracy of it. So there. You are my brother but times have changed...................
