In case of back to back projects, there is no question of having any work in progress as expenses are recognised along with revenue. Further, even if the projects are given on back to back basis, as per the requirement of applicable Ind AS, it is mandatory to prepare cost to complete to arrive at project profitability and in case of possible loss, making provision for the same. Without proper estimation for cost to complete and estimated profitability, it is difficult to arrive at correct working of WIP.
