Details :

Whether in commerce or in public practice, surveyors conduct valuation, asset appraisal, contract negotiation 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 basic terminologies, analyse observable data and apply business concepts relevant to the subject assets, properties and built facilities. 


Audits, ledgers, budgets, projections, final accounts, financial statements, and financial reporting standards are commonly cited amongst owners, clients, contractors, sub-contractors, managers, lawyers, regulators, end-users and other stakeholders in business and finance. Any misinterpretation of key terms and phrases causes embarrassment and costs money. This seminar will give an overview of how relevant concepts in business accounting and finance can be applied in surveying in Hong Kong.
