Swedish term or phrase: tidlager
I can find references for this online, but no dictionary entries unfortunately, so any help would be appreciated.

Context: "Substansvärdet ska beräknas av Bolagets revisor utifrån balansräkning per aktuellt kalenderkvartal varvid tidlager ska värderas enligt de principer som anges i bilaga 5."

Thanks in advance,

I'll suggest this based on these references and my first impression from the Swe reference below. This gives a pretty good definition that seems to fit your given context, but as always ...


This definition is pretty much Sven's suggestion -- but not the term.

Btw maybe its your settings or your location, but I got 1,400 hits for your term.

agree  Agneta Pallinder: BTW a lot of those 1400 hits are for things like "tid. Lager" etc.

  -> Hmm...Looks like your right! Good thing the most relevant came up first ... ;-) Thanks, Agneta!

neutral  Sven Petersson: Depends on what is written in "bilaga 5"; there could be a problem with pro bono work in progress.

  -> What? People work for free!! That WIP should be invaluable ...!

neutral  Leif Ohman: Would imply manufacturing. I found evidence only for lawyers/professionals who only have billable hours, that are either billed or not yet billed.

  -> Yes but my reference, and several others indicate otherwise. as these deal with several categories of professionals
