7.5 Construction contracts PoC (included in other receivables)
Manufacturing contracts are long-term orders with a timeframe of at least three months and representing a significant volume of at least CHF 2,000,000, which are usually governed by a contract for work and services. Manufacturing contracts are recognised using the percentage of completion method (PoC). The PoC method measures the stage of completion of the contractual activity in percentage terms in order to determine the share of the overall revenue for the reporting period and to recognise this share as other receivable. The degree of completion is determined based on the completed quantity of a production lot and/or on the portion of the production stages carried out. Expected losses on construction contracts are recognised immediately in the income statement as an expense.
Advance payments for manufacturing contracts are recognised without any impact on income. If there is no repayment claim, advance payments are offset against the accrued costs of the production contract to which these payments relate.
The other production orders for semi-finished and finished products comprise the direct production costs, including material costs and production costs as well as indirect costs.
