The article describes the nature of investments, i.e. construction-in-progress, the principles of their valuation and the way of presentation in the financial statements of budgetary entities. Some attention is paid to the special legal regulations in this respect. The specific principles of accounting for investments in budgetary entities are explained on the basis of numerical examples.
