Event Description

Course Description

Fixed Assets or Non-Current Assets mostly constitute the biggest proportion of Organization's investment and are very significant for achieving its corporate objectives. Therefore, they must accurately be captured in their respective ledgers and the Fixed Assets Register. Unfortunately, most business do not maiintain Fixed Asset Register (FAR) where fixed assets are to be recorded and managed properly. The inappropriate or non-existence of Fixed Assets Register has always led to misreporting arising from improper measurement of assets values such as depreciation,disposables, impairment, written offs, carrying values etc. For most organizations, there is no link between their financial statements (records) and the physical assets. Regrettably, subsequent costs on these fixed assets such as improvement / enhancement costs which are meant to capitalized are generally expensed. Depreciation is always under / overcharged since the computations are based on the figures in the fixed assets schedule and not the Register. It neither makes no reference to the individual assets value nor their economic useful lives, Sadly, majority of these fixed assets may have been stolen, lost, damaged, obsolote.etc. but yet remain in the fixed assets schedule.
