?WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND BY “CAPITAL WORK IN PROGRESS”


If an asset is not completed at that time when balance sheet is prepared, all costs incurred on that asset up to the balance sheet date are transferred to an account called Capital Work in Progress Account. This account is shown separately in the balance sheet below the fixed asset. Capital work in progress account contains all expenses incurred on the asset until it is converted into working condition. All these expenses will become part of the cost of that asset. When an asset is completed and it is ready to work, all costs will transfer to the relevant asset account.
