“Contract work in progress” is recognised as an asset net of the relative advances if, based on an analysis carried out on a contract-by-contract basis, the gross amount of work in progress exceeds advances from customers. It is recognised as a liability if advances from customers exceed the relevant work in progress. This offsetting is performed only with regard to work in progress and not to inventories or other assets. If the progress payments and advances from customers have not been collected at the reporting date, the corresponding amount is recognised as a receivable from customers.
