Sample text

We shall refer to these ways as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. Historic cost (HC); Replacement cost (RC); Net realizable value (NRV); Net present value (NPV) or economic value (EV). Two general points can usefully be made: First, all four methods of approach involve estimation. In the whole of the discussion and illustration of alternative values of the briefcase, there is only one figure for which even the possibility of precise knowledge exists namely the original cost of £10. In many instances, as we shall see later, even this figure cannot be determined with precision.

Thus in the above example the exit value for the work in progress would be £10. It is clear that the exit value capital (R) at any particular date shows the amount of money that the business could obtain from its assets as on that date. Turning this round, exit value is seen as an opportunity cost conceptit shows the amount of cash that the business could obtain if it did not keep the asset.

There is therefore a windfall gain of £91 appearing under the ex ante way of thinking in the year 03. Income ex post means that income is measured after the event. Income for a period is based on expectations as at the end of the period. Thus in our example, but using an ex post approach, there will be a change in the calculations for the year 02, because at the end of the year 02 our expectations had already altered.
