Ind AS 11 Construction Contracts : Ind AS 11 Construction Contracts provides requirements on the allocation of contract revenue and contract costs to accounting periods in which construction work is performed. Contract revenues and expenses are recognised by reference to the stage of completion of contract activity where the outcome of the construction contract can be estimated reliably, otherwise revenue is recognised only to the extent of recoverable contract costs incurred. Ind AS 11 was reissued in December 1993 and is applicable for periods beginning on or after 1 January 1995.

Ind AS 11 Construction Contracts : The accounting standard Ind AS 11 sets out the accounting treatment of revenue and costs associated with construction contracts. Find articles, books and online resources providing quick links to the standard, summaries, guidance and news of recent developments.

What is a construction contract?

A construction contract is a contract specifically negotiated for the construction of an asset or a group of interrelated assets. Under Ind AS 11, if a contract covers two or more assets, the construction of each asset should be accounted for separately if (a) separate proposals were submitted for each asset, (b) portions of the contract relating to each asset were negotiated separately, and (c) costs and revenues of each asset can be measured. Otherwise, the contract should be accounted for in its entirety. If a contract gives the customer an option to order one or more additional assets, construction of each additional asset should be accounted for as a separate contract if either (a) the additional asset differs significantly from the original asset(s) or (b) the price of the additional asset is separately negotiated.

What is included in contract revenue and costs?

Contract revenue should include the amount agreed in the initial contract, plus revenue from alternations in the original contract work, plus claims and incentive payments that (a) are expected to be collected and (b) that can be measured reliably. Contract costs should include costs that relate directly to the specific contract, plus costs that are attributable to the contractor’s general contracting activity to the extent that they can be reasonably allocated to the contract, plus such other costs that can be specifically charged to the customer under the terms of the contract.

Construction Contract Definition

The contract which is entered into, for the construction of an individual asset (house or an Office building) or a group of assets that are inter-dependent with respect to their design, function or operational use (airport and runway).

The construction contracts include:

(a) Contracts for the construction of the individual asset or group of assets.

(b)  Contracts involving destruction or restoration of old assets.


This Standard deals with the accounting treatment of revenue and costs related to construction contracts. As normally in the construction industry the duration of projects spans beyond one year and project work usually takes more than one accounting year to get complete.


The requirements of this Standard are applicable in the financial statements of Contractors to account for construction contracts.


If the outcome of a construction contract can be estimated reliably, revenue and costs should be recognised in proportion to the stage of completion of contract activity. This is known as the percentage of completion method of accounting. If the outcome cannot be estimated reliably, no profit should be recognised. Instead, contract revenue should be recognised only to the extent that contract costs incurred are expected to be recoverable and contract costs should be expenses as incurred and etc.
