The Waikato Community Trust Incorporated Notes To and Forming Part Of the Consolidated Financial Statements for the Year Ended 31 March 2004
1. Statement of Accounting Policies
Basis of Reporting
The financial statements presented here are for the reporting entity The Waikato Community Trust Incorporated and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Trust Waikato Charities Limited, Trust Waikato Amateur Sport Limited and Trust Waikato District Improvements Limited.
The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand for the measurement and reporting of profit on a historical cost basis with the exception of investments which are recorded at market value.
Specific Accounting Policies
The following specific accounting policies which materially affect the measurement of financial performance and the financial position have been applied:
(a) Reserves Policy
Set out below are the reserving policies. They were adopted by the trust in 1998 and have been amended following reviews in 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2004 to reflect investment performance.
Trust Funds
In order to prudently manage the financial affairs of the trust, the trustees have adopted the following policies for accounting for the trust's capital and retained earnings.
? Capital
Following the sale of the trust's shares in Trust Bank New Zealand Limited in April 1996, the trustees agreed that the value of the trust at that time should be maintained for the benefit of current and future generations living in the Waikato region.
For this purpose, the trustees agreed that $169,800,000 would be considered as the "initial capital" of the trust.
The "initial capital value" is increased each year to show the "base capital value" which reflects growth due to inflation and regional growth. An amount was transferred from retained earnings in 1997 to increase the capital of the trust from its original amount of $21,316,622 to the "initial capital value" and to provide for growth during the 1997 year. Each year, an appropriate amount is transferred from income to allow for growth due to inflation and regional population growth. Transfers have not been made in the 2003 and 2004 years. An appropriate amount will be transferred when investment performance improves sufficiently.
? Investment Fluctuation Reserve
The trustees have adopted an investment strategy with a targeted long term annual rate of return of 6.8% (2003 - 8.4%) of
the trust's "base capital value". Recognising that actual returns are likely to fluctuate from year to year, the trust holds the variation from the target in an investment fluctuation reserve. In years when investment returns are less than the target, an appropriate amount is transferred to income.
At the trust's current risk profile, the investment fluctuation reserve should have a lower limit of 9% (2003 - 9%) and an upper limit of 25% (2003 - 25%) of the "base capital value". When the reserve falls below the lower limit, the level of expenditure and distributions are reviewed by the trust. If the reserve exceeds the upper limit, any further excess returns are transferred to the donation reserve.
? Donation Reserve
The trust's present donation policy is to distribute annually as donations 3.5% (2003 - 4.5%), subject to the investment fluctuation reserve policy of the "base capital value". The trustees recognise that for a number of reasons, this might not always be achievable and that there will inevitably be fluctuations between the donations distributed and the actual target.
The surplus or deficit after transfers to the capital and the investment fluctuation reserve is held in the donation reserve and represents the trust's retained earnings or accumulated losses. It is the trust's intention to apply the surplus in this fund to future donations or recover deficits from future income.
(b) Fixed Assets
All fixed assets have been recorded at cost price less accumulated depreciation.
(c) Depreciation
Depreciation of fixed assets other than land, art and artefacts, is calculated using taxation rates so as to allocate the cost of the assets over their useful lives. The following rates are used:
Office equipment and furniture 12.0-48.0% Diminishing value
Motor vehicles 31.2% Diminishing value
Buildings 4.0-31.2% Diminishing value
(d) Donations
Donations made are included in the statement of financial performance or statement of movements in equity when approved by the trustees.
(e) Goods and Services Tax
The trust is not registered for goods and services tax purposes. Accordingly, these financial statements are stated on a G.S.T. inclusive basis.
(f) Investments
Investments are stated at market value. Adjustments to market value of investments are included in the statement of financial performance.
(g) Taxation
Income tax expense recognises the current obligations payable to the Inland Revenue Department. The partial method of recognising deferred tax is employed. No deferred tax liability is expected to crystallise in the foreseeable future.
(h) Currency Translation
Monetary assets denominated in foreign currency are converted to New Zealand dollars at the exchange rates reported at balance date and any unrealised profit or loss resulting from the conversion is reflected in the statement of financial performance. All hedge instruments are also revalued to market value at year end and unrealised profits and losses are reflected in the statement of financial performance.
(i) Consolidation Method
The purchase method is used to consolidate the trust and its subsidiaries. All inter-entity transactions, balances and unrealised profits and losses on transactions between group members have been eliminated.
(j) Changes in Accounting Policies
There have been no changes in accounting policies since the previous annual financial statements. All policies have been applied on bases consistent with those used in the prior year.
2. Incorporation

Losses carried forward (23,234) (8,234)
The adjustment for prior year in 2003 relates to a change in the treatment of unrealised losses for one of the trust's investment funds. In 2001 and 2002, unrealised losses were treated as non-deductible for tax purposes when, in fact, they could be deducted. The impact of this change is to increase the tax losses that the trust has available to reduce future taxable income.
