Statement of Accounting Policies and Notes for the Year Ended 31 March 2005
The West Coast Community Trust (“the group”) was formed on 30 May 1988 through the creation of a trust deed in compliance with the Trustee Banks Restructuring Act 1988. The group consists of West Coast Community Trust and its subsidiary West Coast Community Trust Charitable Company Limited. These accounts have been prepared in accordance with the Financial Reporting Act 1993. The group qualifies for differential reporting because its revenue and number of employees fall below the threshold set by the differential reporting standards.
The group 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 historical 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
Investments are stated at net realisable value.
(ii) Fixed Assets
All fixed assets are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation to date.
Depreciation has been charged on a straight line basis allocated over an estimated economic life of the assets. Depreciation has been calculated as follows:

(d) Goods and Services Tax
The group is exempt from registration for goods and services tax under section 14 (b) of the Goods and Services Tax Act 1985.
These financial statements have therefore been prepared on a G.S.T. inclusive basis.
The West Coast Community Trust and its subsidiary charitable company, West Coast Community Trust Charitable Company Limited, have been consolidated using the purchase method of consolidation.
From 1 April 2004, the trust is exempt from income tax under section CB4 (1) (m) of the Income Tax Act 1994. As a result, the only taxation the trust pays is in relation to imputation credits and withholding payments deducted from dividends and overseas earnings, which are not eligible to be refunded.
5. Changes in Accounting Policies
The separate components of trustees’ funds are now disclosed individually in the statement of financial position. This change of reporting method has no effect on the financial position stated. The prior year’s figures have also been restated to reflect this changed accounting policy.
There have been no other changes in accounting policies.

To the Readers of the Financial Statements of West Coast Community Trust
We have audited the consolidated financial report. The financial report provides information about the past financial performance and financial position of the West Coast Community Trust and group as at 31 March 2005. This information is stated in accordance with the accounting policies set out in the financial report.
The trustees are responsible for the preparation of a financial report which gives a true and fair view of the financial position of the West Coast Community Trust and group as at 31 March 2005 and of the results of operations for the year ended on that date.
It is our responsibility to express an independent opinion on the financial report presented by the trustees and report our opinion to you.
Basis of Opinion
An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence relevant to the amounts and disclosures in the financial report. It also includes assessing:
· the significant estimates and judgements made by the trustees in the preparation of the financial report; and
· whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the West Coast Community Trust and group circumstances, consistently applied and adequately disclosed.
We conducted our audit in accordance with New Zealand auditing standards. 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 obtain 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.
The offices of Wilding Smith & Co act as the registered office of West Coast Community Trust Charitable Company Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the trust.
Our firm provides administrative services to the company in relation to this function. The firm has no other interests in the West Coast Community Trust or its subsidiary.
We have obtained all the information and explanations we have required.
In our opinion:
· proper accounting records have been kept by the West Coast Community Trust as far as appears from our examination of those records; and
· the financial report:
– complies with generally accepted accounting practice; and
– gives a true and fair view of the financial position of the West Coast Community Trust and group as at 31 March 2005 and the results of operations and cash flows for the year ended on that date.
Our audit was completed on 29 July 2005 and our unqualified opinion is expressed as at that date.
