The cost can be raised as an expense (accredited expenditure) or as a re-charge. If raised as a Principal Contractor expense this will be indicated as cost to the Principal Contractor on the costs report. If raised as a recharge to the subcontractor (for example) this will be indicated as a recharge to the subcontractor on the costs report.
