To the Readers of the Financial Statements of West Coast Community Trust
We have audited the financial report of the trust which provides information about the past financial performance of the trust and its financial position as at 31 March 2000. This information is stated in accordance with the accounting policies set out.
Trustees' responsibilities
The trustees are responsible for the preparation of a financial report which gives a true and fair view of the financial position of the trust as at 31 March 2000 and of the results of operations for the year ended 31 March 2000.
Auditors' responsibilities
It is our responsibility to express an independent opinion on the financial report presented by the trustees and report our opinion to you.

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards in New Zealand. We planned and performed our audit so as to obtain all the information and explanations which we considered necessary in order to provide us with sufficient evidence to give reasonable assurance that the financial report is free from material misstatements, whether caused by fraud or error. In forming our opinion, we also evaluated the overall adequacy of the presentation of information in the financial report.
Other than in our capacity as auditors, we have no relationship with or interests in the trust.

Notes to the Financial Statements for the Year Ended 31 March 2000
1. Formation
The West Coast Community Trust ("the trust") was formed on 30 May 1988 through the creation of a trust deed in compliance with the Trustee Banks Restructuring Act 1988. These accounts have been prepared in accordance with the 1993 Financial Reporting Act. The trust qualifies for differential reporting because its revenue and number of employees fall below the threshold set by the Differential Reporting Standards.
The trust has applied all the differential reporting exemptions allowed with the exception of SSAP3 - Accounting for Depreciation.
2. Measurement system
The measurement system adopted is that of historic cost.
3. Particular accounting policies
The particular accounting policies adopted in the statements which have a significant effect on the results and financial position disclosed are:
(a) Income determination
Interest Income has been accrued to balance date on a daily basis.
(b) Valuation of assets
i Investments
Investments are stated at cost. It should, however, be noted that the AMP Asset Management Fund had a market value of $4,496,815 as at 31 March 2000. The directors do not consider the devaluation of the AMP investment to be material and thus it is recorded in the balance sheet at cost.
ii Fixed Assets
All fixed assets are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation to date.
(c) Depreciation
Depreciation has been charged on a straight line basis allocated over an estimated economic life of the assets. Depreciation has been calculated as follows:
Asset Cost Depn to date Estimated Life Opening Value Depn Accum Depn Closing Book Value
Typewriter 2019 2019 5 years - - 2019 -
Photocopier 2756 2756 5 years - - 2756 -
Fax Machine 349 52 5 years 297 70 122 227
$5124 $4827 $297 $70 $4897 $227
(d) Goods and services tax
The trust is exempt from registration for Goods and Services Tax under section 14 (b) of the Goods and Services Tax Act.
These Financial Statements have therefore been prepared on a G.S.T. inclusive basis.
4. Changes in accounting policies
There have been no material changes in accounting policies.
