Introduction

This 5-day training course is designed for the participants to have a comprehensive understanding and control of the complete cycle of fixed assets from capital budgeting to fixed assets retirement. The accounting and management of fixed assets is deemed essential as fixed assets play as the major resources for production and generation of benefits. This course covers all lifecycles of fixed assets from creation or acquisition to utilization and maintenance until renewal or disposal.

The management part of this course deals with the decision-making tools such as NPV, IRR and other capital budget comparative tools used to decide whether to acquire, replace or refurbish assets. While the accounting part is based on the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), mainly standard number 16 for property plant and equipment, and IFRS 38 for intangibles. This also includes capitalization rules for fixed assets and intangibles, and rules for measuring assets at fair value.
