About this event

The process of undertaking capital asset valuations for land and buildings in the local authority balance sheet is not easy. It is not something that a local authority valuer will be likely to have learned during their qualification process. As accounting regulations change, interpreting and keeping up to date with the various regulations and standards to ensure compliance can be a tricky and time consuming task. Any misinterpretation can become embedded into locally accepted practice making for an uncomfortable audit process.

  • undertaking local authority asset valuations
  • overseeing local authority asset valuations undertaken by members of your team or by external valuers and

  • understand the key requirements of the CIPFA Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting insofar as it relates to valuations for the balance sheet and related disclosures including bases of value, valuation frequency, componentisation, lease classification, impairment etc., and associated practical approaches, including the key changes arising from IFRS13
  • understand the key requirements of the RICS Valuation Professional Standards and the International Valuation Standards insofar as they relate to local authority asset valuations, together with the associated practical approaches.
