||Mr Benny K B Kwok
He is a Certified Public Accountant, Chartered Surveyor, Chartered Builder, Certified Tax Adviser and Registered Professional Surveyor in Hong Kong. He has attended arbitration hearings, disciplinary proceedings as well as trials at the District Court and the High Court in Hong Kong, on civil and criminal cases, as an expert witness to give evidence in respect of various commercial and financial matters.
Professional surveyors often carry out valuation and asset appraisal as well as take charge of the overall supervision and daily operation of properties and built facilities which require the ability to understand and analyse the relevant financials relating to those assets, properties and facilities. Budgets, projections, final accounts and financial statements are common communication channels amongst owners, clients, contractors, sub-contractors, managers, regulators, end-users and other stakeholders. As these financials are full of technicalities and codified messages, those less well trained in the subject may not be able to unlock these messages.
This seminar caters for the needs of property & facility managers, and seeks to bridge the gap between finance and surveying. By going through the jungle of accounts, budgets, ledgers, forecasts, projections, reconciliations, reserves, audit reports, balance sheet, capital expenditure, cash books, financial statements, fixed asset register, income & expenditure accounts, internal controls, inventory records and reporting regulatory framework, this seminar will serve as an avenue to the unseen world of finance and accountancy revealing the truth behind the numbers and transactions.
