Statement of Accounting Policies and Notes for the Year Ended 31 March 2006
1. Formation
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 trust’s original capital of $3 million came from the proceeds of the sale of Westland Bank Limited. The group consists of West Coast Community Trust and its former subsidiary West Coast Community Trust Charitable Company Limited. This subsidiary was wound up pursuant to a resolution of trustees dated 22 July 2004. 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
(i) Investments
Investments are stated at net realisable value.
(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 Depnto date EstimatedLife Opening Value Additions Depn AccumDepn ClosingBook Value

5,749 5,346 403 – 121 5,467 282
(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 GST inclusive basis.
(e) Consolidation
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.
4. Taxation
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
There have been no changes in accounting policies.

Total remuneration paid in the financial year ended 31 March 2006 – $23,587.
Rates of remuneration, including honoraria and meeting fees, are set by the Minister of Finance. The group has also insured all trustees against liability to other parties that may arise from their position as trustees, excluding liability for gross negligence or criminal actions.
A register of interest is held at the office of the trust and is available for public inspection.
The trustees have adopted a Code of Conduct. There were no breaches of this code during the financial year ended 31 March 2006.
7. Trust Funds
Although the trust does not maintain an inflation reserve, it does seek to maintain the trust capital in real terms. The trust calculates that an amount of $1,296,651 is required to be retained to stabilise the original $3 million fund from inflation. Our current retained earnings is $2,085,994 which leaves $789,343 as the growth of the trust in real terms.
8. Investments
The value of investments which are held in equities and fixed interest are subject to market fluctuations. The total investment portfolio is diversified in a way such that over time reductions in value in particular asset classes should be more than offset by increases in other classes. Investments are disclosed at market value at balance date and any gains (losses) arising from that treatment are shown under Revenue in the Statement of Financial Performance. No provision has been made for potential gains or losses that could occur due to future market fluctuations. The investment portfolio as at 31 March 2006 is diversified as follows:
