AUDIT OBJECTIVES
To determine whether:
A.

B.
C.

D.

Capital work-in-progress represents all tangible assets


owned or held under finance lease that are intended to
be used in the entity's operations are under
construction or installation phase or have not yet been
put into operation and they are properly recorded at
cost on a consistent basis.
Additions to capital work-in-progress during the audit
period are proper capital charges and represent all
actual physical property to be installed or constructed.
The costs applicable to all transfers to operating fixed
assets/assets subject to finance lease/investment
property have been properly removed from capital
work-in-progress and have been transferred to
respective assets.
Capital work-in-progress has not been imposed by any
material factor.

SUBSTANTIVE PROCEDURES
1. Overall Analytical Review
1.1

Obtain an analysis of activity in the construction-inprogress accounts, by project or appropriation, for the
current period. Include the balances at the beginning
and end of the period, additions, transfers and other
dispositions.
1.2
Cross-reference the total activity to the summary
analysis for the period.
1.3
For significant projects or appropriations suspended,
cancelled or delayed during the period, review the
related circumstances and evaluate the effect on
realizability or recoverability of costs incurred.
1.4
Review cash flow projections or budgets and, through
discussions with appropriate client personnel,
determine whether the client has identified adequate
resources to complete the project or appropriation.
2. Additions

Review appropriate approval documentation to ensure


that additions are not made to unauthorized projects or
to projects for which the approval limit has been
exceeded.
Select a sample of projects or appropriations for
testing and have the client prepare a schedule
detailing the charges for those selected.
Scope/Sample: (
)
Trace the charges to the construction-in-progress
subsidiary ledger or similar record that accumulates
charges and credits to individual projects or
appropriations.
Inspect critical forms and documents supporting a
sample of charges to the project. Scope/Sample: (
)
Review the total charges for the project to date for
reasonableness by reference to contracts with
contractors, published statistics on costs of
construction, the client's prior experience with similar
additions, insurance or appraisal reports, architect's
certificates or other appropriate sources.
Review the propriety of the methods used to capitalize
interest costs during the construction period and
determine whether they are consistent with the
methods used in the prior period. Evaluate the
propriety of the time period for which interest was
capitalized and the interest rate used; recompute the
amount capitalized. Ensure that capitalization does not
result in asset carrying values in excess of the
recoverable value of the property. Particularly ensure
compliance of IAS-23.
Review the propriety of the methods used to capitalize
overhead during the construction period and
determine whether they are consistent with the
methods used in the prior period. Evaluate the
propriety of amounts capitalized.
Review the propriety of the method used for
allocation of exchange loss and check whether it has
been applied consistently. Ensure compliance of IAS23 and relevant provisions of the Companies
Ordinance, 1984.
For simultaneous construction of two assets e.g., plant
and colony, allocate the soft costs including
unallocated expenditures to assets capitalized in
proportion to total amount of directly attributable
cost / hard costs

Ensure that depreciation on construction equipments


used for capital work-in-progress is allocated /
capitalized in this head instead of charging it off.
Physically
observe
significant
projects
or
appropriations in process at the end of the period,
noting that the physical characteristics appear to be
consistent with the description in the authorizing
documentation and that the estimated stage of
completion appears reasonable.
For self constructed assets ensure that the expenditure
incurred during construction phase has been classified
and segregated among formation, direct project cost,
indirect cost, as per the requirement of TR-20 of ICAP
and further ensure the accounting treatment as
follows:

Formation costs like preliminary expenses are


charged off not exceeding five years
commencing from the financial year in which it
was first incurred.

Direct project costs like import duties, clearing


and LC expenses, sight preparation cost,
installation cost are capitalized.

Indirect costs like general and administration


expenses, operation and maintenance cost, loss
on trial runs, etc. are allocated to building and
plant and machinery in proportion to their
respect cost.

3. Transfers
3.1

3.2

3.3
3.4

For projects or appropriations completed during the


year, determine whether there was a proper cutoff of
the capitalization of interest and overhead and
whether all related costs were transferred to the
property accounts (note propriety of classification)
and considered for depreciation on a timely basis.
Obtain completion certificates for all transfers during
the audit period either from the outside
contractors/consultants or internal engineering
department.
Review subsequent to year-end transfers and consider
whether these were complete as at the balance sheet
date or not.
Ensure that the depreciation charge has commenced
on all assets capitalized during the period according to
the Companys policy.
