Generally, the cost to complete post termination are exactly that. There is an effective final account with the subcontractor where the work he has carried out is valued in accordance with the subcontract. Deducted from that will be the amount paid and the amount it will cost to complete the work (this is always likely to be higher than the amount allowed by the subcontract).

If the termination has not been carried out correctly the answer may be significantly different.
