Details :

Whether in commerce or in public practice, surveyors conduct valuation, tendering, asset appraisal, contract negotiation, due diligence and property consulting as well as take charge of the overall supervision and daily operation of properties and built facilities. All these tasks and engagements require the abilities to understand and apply accounting and finance in the appropriate context.

Audits, ledgers, budgets, projections, final accounts, financial statements, financial reporting standards, discounted cash flows and net present value are commonly cited amongst owners, clients, contractors, sub-contractors, managers, lawyers, regulators, end-users and other stakeholders in business and finance. Misapplication of concepts and/or misinterpretation of clients’ requirements cause embarrassment and cost a lot of money. This seminar will give an overview of how relevant concepts in business accounting and finance can be applied in surveying in Hong Kong.
