  Chapter 1 Introduction1.1Introduction Fixed asset known as property, plant, and equipment (PP&E), is a termused inaccountancyforassetsandpropertywhich cannot easily be converted intocash. This can be compared withcurrent assetssuch as cash or bank accounts, which are described asliquid assets. In most cases, onlytangible assets are referred to as fixed. These are items of value which the organization has bought and will usefor an extended period of time; fixed assets normally include items such aslandandbuildings,motor vehicles,furniture,office equipment,computers, fixtures and fittings, and plant andmachinery. These often receive favorabletax treatment (depreciation allowance) over short-term assets. According toInternational Accounting Standard (IAS) 16, Fixed Assets are assets whosefuture economic benefit is probable to flow into the entity, whose cost can bemeasured reliably.It is pertinent to note that the cost of a fixed asset is its purchase price,including import duties and other deductible trade discounts and rebates. Inaddition, cost attributable to bringing and installing the asset in its neededlocation and the initial estimate of dismantling and removing the item if theyare eventually no longer needed on the location. 1   The primary objective of a business entity is to make profit and increasethe wealth of its owners. In the attainment of this objective it is required thatthe management will exercise due care and diligence in applying the basicaccounting concept of “Matching Concept”. Matching concept is simplymatching the expenses of a period against the revenues of the same period. The use of assets in the generation of revenue is usually more than ayear- that is long term. It is therefore obligatory that in order to accuratelydetermine the net income or profit for a period depreciation is charged onthe total value of asset that contributed to the revenue for the period inconsideration and charge against the same revenue of the same period. Thisis essential in the prudent reporting of the net revenue for the entity in theperiod.Net book value of an asset is basically the difference between thehistorical cost of that asset and it associated depreciation. From theforegoing, it is apparent that in order to report a true and fair position of thefinancial jurisprudence of an entity it is relatable to record and report thevalue of fixed assets at its net book value. Apart from the fact that it isenshrined in Standard Accounting Statement (SAS) 3 and IAS 16 that valueof asset should be carry at the net book value, it is the best way of consciously presenting the value of assets to the owners of the business andpotential investor. 1.2Project Scope Project scope is the sum of the products (deliverables) and services tobe provided as a project.
