Government Printing Office Financial Statements 124 (e) Cash and cash equivalents For the purpose of the statement of cash flows, cash includes cash on hand, cash held and cash equivalent assets in the entitys Operating Account. Cash equivalents are highly liquid short-term investments that are readily convertible to cash. Bank overdrafts are carried at the principal amount. (f) Inventories Inventories are carried at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Costs have been assigned to different classifications of inventories as follows: Raw Materials are valued at average cost. Work in Progress is valued using absorption costing with raw materials incorporated at the average cost at time of issue, and the labour and overhead costs are valued using standard costs. (g) Receivables The collectibility of debtors or receivables is assessed at balance date and specific provision is made for any doubtful accounts. Trade debtors to be settled within 30 days and other debtors to be settled within 30 days are carried at amounts due. (h) Property, plant and equipment Acquisitions Items of property, plant and equipment are initially recorded at cost where the cost is greater than $5,000 and depreciated as outlined below. Costs incurred on property, plant and equipment, which do not meet the criteria for capitalisation, are expensed as incurred. The cost of property, plant and equipment constructed by the entity includes the cost of materials and direct labour, an appropriate proportion of fixed and variable overheads and capitalised interest. Complex assets Major items of plant and equipment comprising a number of components that have different useful lives, are accounted for as separate assets. The components may be replaced during the useful life of the complex asset. Subsequent additional costs Costs incurred on property, plant and equipment subsequent to initial acquisition are capitalised when it is probable that future economic benefits in excess of the originally assessed performance of the asset will flow to the entity in future years. Where these costs represent separate components of a complex asset, they are accounted for as separate assets and are separately depreciated over their useful lives.
