Analyzing Your Equipment Account


Identification: WEB160823

Credits: None available.

Many companies see their equipment account as something of a mystery.

All the costs of owning and operating the fleet are debited to the account and all cost recoveries arising from charging jobs for the equipment they have used are credited to the account. Sometimes the account balances but most times but most times there are big positive or negative variances.

The questions are pretty simple. How do you know what is going on inside the equipment account? Do you understand the variances and do you have the information required to take appropriate action? Do you know how to analyze your equipment account?

The webinar will show how to develop practical tools that improve equipment costing and produce actionable information based on a knowledge of budget variances and the fundamental difference between equipment owning and operating costs.


In this presentation, you will:
  • Understand the importance of balancing cost and budget within a given equipment rate class and of eliminating cross subsidization between classes and categories of equipment.
  • Know the difference between equipment owning and operating costs and know what action to take when budget expectations are not met in either one or both of these principal equipment cost types.
  • Be familiar with report formats and graphics that present information in a clear easily understood format that drives appropriate action and produces the required results.

This program is free to all CICPAC members, and is appropriate for staff accounting personnel at all levels.
