CFA Practice Question

Which of the following is true regarding the completed-contract method?

A. It does not use a construction in progress account.
B. Billings on a construction contract represents the income of the project.
C. During the production on the project, the construction in progress account includes the profit.
D. Income is only recognized at the end of the project.
Correct Answer: D

Because of uncertainty regarding costs or collection of the contract price, income cannot be recognized until the project is completed and collections have been made. The method does use a construction in progress account, but it does not include income during the project. Billings represents the actual amount that has been billed to the purchaser and is liability which is a measure of the contractor's obligation to perform.
