Finance & Accounts Department

The Industrial Training Fund is a self-accounting parastatal under the supervision of Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade & Investment. It is self–accounting in the sense that it generates and expends all its revenue, i.e (50%) Fifty reimbursed to contributing employers and (50%) Fifty for self sustenance However, being self-accounting does not preclude it from being audited by Auditor-General of the Federation or other regulatory agencies of government. Also being self-accounting does not preclude ITF from applying basic government accounting principles such as Cash and Accrual Basis of Accounting. Also preparation of financial statements that conform with International Accounting Standards. That being the case, ITF has some characteristics in its accounting system that belong to private sector accounting in its nature. These include the preparation of Cash Book which combines receipts and payments instead of separate cash books for each as is obtainable in public sector accounting. Another is the treatment of Assets and their depreciation, which in applied government accounting is regarded as “stores”. It is in view of these that ITF, over the years, has developed its own accounting system that satisfies its operations, as well as conforms to universal practices and principles.
