The flagship club within the Group, Workers Blacktown is an icon that has stood proudly in the Blacktown community as a major entertainment and leisure destination. The venue features restaurants (including Western Sydney’s only revolving restaurant), the famous Diamond Showroom, sporting facilities plus conference and function rooms. The tower which houses the revolving restaurant celebrated it’s 21st birthday in 2019 with the next milestone being the club reaching it’s 65th year in 2020. This year, the club will continue to undergo an extensive refurbishment that was commenced in 2019, with two floors within the venue being upgraded.

Workers Sport is a modern club that epitomises the Group’s passion for sport. Outside, you’ll find the renowned sporting complex with two rugby league fields plus two soccer fields and a cricket oval, complete with stadium seating, as well as bowling greens, tennis courts and a baseball/softball diamond. Inside, the venue celebrates all sports as the home of live sport on the big screens. With a variety of dining options, a popular outdoor area and a Travelodge just next door, Workers Sports attracts a wide range of patrons. Workers Sports is destined to become the home of a seniors living village with announcements due to come in 2020.

Joining the Group in 2014, Workers Hubertus has enjoyed a long, rich history as a German Country Club. It is now a destination for amazing outdoor activities, including two of biggest events in the calendar – Oktoberfest and the Children’s Christmas Party. The restaurant serves all the classic club favourites, and with a modern, comfortable lounge, Workers Hubertus is a perfect place to spend time with friends and family. The function space boasts stunning views of the lake and rural landscape beyond, so it is in high demand for important celebrations.

PRESIDENT’S REPORT On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are pleased to present to our members this Annual Report, detailing our financial results for the period of 2019. We experienced yet another year of change for the Blacktown Workers Club Group. Most importantly, we were proud to announce the appointment by promotion of Frank Raiti to Chief Executive Officer of the Group in May. Frank has been part of the Workers family for four and a half years, with extensive experience in the Club industry and various corporate organisations. Frank has formed an Executive Management team with many decades of experience between them; Shelley Fletcher, People & Culture; Paresh Patel, Finance & Commercial; Alison Brown, Marketing & Communications. By August 2019, we unveiled to our members a refreshed façade, a stunning new bar situated in the gaming room and a brand-new hair salon for Workers Blacktown. The Board of Directors and the Executive Management team then undertook strategic planning in September where we set a range of clear strategic objectives for 2020, including a new refurbishment plan that will ensure we rejuvenate as much of the main club as possible as well as giving some attention to both Sports and Hubertus. This will be a significant investment into the Campbell Street venue which will solidify the longevity of the Group. We look forward to making progress on these projects throughout the year, whilst we thank you in advance for the patience and support that we know our members will give through the period of disruption that major works can cause. In the 2018 Annual Report, I announced the promotion of our three Venue Managers; Kylie Canning, Workers Blacktown; Brett Lane, Workers Sports; John Filipec, Workers Hubertus. I’m proud to say that these managers have not only excelled this year, they also celebrated milestones in 2019. Kylie has been employed with Workers for 10 years, Brett for 15 years and John for an outstanding 25 years. It is a testament to the culture in Blacktown Workers Club Group, that not only have these managers been able to develop their careers with us over time, that we are able to retain such loyal, longstanding employees. Another milestone celebrated in 2019 was the 25th anniversary of the revolving restaurant, which many will remember as Hi-lights, now known as Cucina Locale. It was a time to mark the progress that the club and the community has made, with the tower that holds the restaurant once being the tallest in Blacktown, we are now seeing new high-rise buildings continually grow within the CBD. It is an exciting time to be an integral member of the Blacktown community. Similarly, we 8

are witnessing rapid change in Luddenham around our Hubertus club with the aerotropolis development. It is a reminder for the Board and management to strive to remain relevant and grow so that we can continue to give back to the communities in which we operate. At Workers Sports, we are continuing to work in the background on the proposed Seniors Living Resort, with new applications being submitted. We expect to have our next significant update on this project for our members by the end of 2020. In March 2019, we opened the Sports Complex and we were honoured at the Clubs & Community Awards with an award for our outstanding contribution to the Support for Amateur Sport. We are immensely proud of this acknowledgement. I congratulate again the team that made, and continue to make, the sporting complex such a success and important asset to grassroots local sport. Our membership has increased this past year, now exceeding 56,000 members. We are so gratified as this figure continues to grow, demonstrating that we are maintaining our relevance and importance to the membership through the entertainment and dining offerings that we provide. We acknowledge our 15 Tin Shed members who were with us at the foundation of the club (1955 - 1959), our 509 VIP members who hold over 50 years’ consecutive membership, our 5,543 Quarter Century members who hold over 25 years’ consecutive membership, and our Sporting Bodies. Early in January 2020, during the tragic bushfire crisis, Blacktown Workers Club Group donated $56,434 to the NSW Rural Fire Service. This figure represented a dollar for every member – acknowledgement that we couldn’t give back to our community the way that we do without the loyal patronage of our members. To my Board of Directors, thank you for your dedication and support during this year. We’ve made great progress together as a team and I acknowledge the efforts that you have all put into the Group as volunteers. A club is only as good as its people – members and staff coming together with a passion. I am surrounded by a Board, management, staff and membership that is dedicated to our clubs as well as our local communities. I thank you and I wish you all good health, love and friendship for 2020. Keep smiling and be kind to each other. Kay Kelly President Blacktown Workers Club Group

CEO’S REPORT Dear members, It is my pleasure to present to you the 2019 Blacktown Workers Club Group Annual Report, incorporating the Annual Financial Report for the year ending 31 December 2019. I’d like to begin by thanking you, our members, for the warm reception and support you have given me personally, since stepping into the role as your Chief Executive Officer in May 2019. It is an honour and a privilege to fulfil this position and to lead our dedicated team of Managers and staff and I would like to thank our loyal and dedicated Board of Directors, led by our President Kay Kelly in entrusting me with this important role. 2019 was an exciting year for the Blacktown Workers Club Group as we embarked on a long-overdue refurbishment of our Main Club in Campbell Street, Blacktown. This refurbishment will continue in 2020 and into 2021 as we give back to you, our members, a totally modern and new feeling to Workers Blacktown. On a financial note, in what was widely reported as a difficult trading year for not only clubs, but retail and hospitality in general, the Blacktown Workers Club Group reported a growth in Revenue of $1.4M from $55M in 2018 to $56.4M in 2019; and from that I am pleased to report a Net Profit after tax of $4.6M (after contributing a substantial $1.7M to the community through sporting club grants, sponsorships and charitable donations). The true barometer however, in relation to our operating result, is reflected in our EBITDA, which is Earnings Before Interest, income Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation. Our EBITDA for the financial year was a very pleasing $13.9M.

reduced by $384K to $8.9M. Resulting in an extremely strong Net Asset position of $125M, an increase of $4.6M from 2018. Our membership base also remains as strong as ever, increasing by 2.5% to 56,434 members at financial year end. As pleasing as all of that is, at the end of the day the reason the Blacktown Workers Club Group is here is to support and give back to our local community. It was a very special and proud moment in the Blacktown Workers Club Group’s history, when in March 2019 we officially opened our state-of-the-art Sporting Fields, Grandstands and associated amenities at our Workers Sports Club. A $30M capital investment funded entirely out of the Group’s own cashflow. In recognition of this accomplishment, it was also an extremely proud moment in November 2019 to attend the 2019 Clubs & Community Awards in which we received the award for our outstanding contribution to the Support of Amateur Sport. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our Board of Directors, managers and all our staff for their hard work and dedication they provide to our members daily. To our members, I thank you for your continued support and loyalty and look forward to seeing you in 2020. Thank you! Regards, Frank Raiti Chief Executive Officer Blacktown Workers Club Group

OUR STAFF SANCTUARY Our employees are also ambassadors for the Blacktown Workers Club Group and with happy staff comes happy customers. One of the ways we showed our appreciation for our ambassadors was to create a brand new, happy, bright, safe and inclusive breakout room where the staff can sit back, relax, eat, drink, play, watch, refresh, snack, talk, collaborate, communicate and ultimately “have a KitKat” and have a break. Let us take you on a little tour. As you walk through the doors you are greeted by two computers connected to a printer that can be used by our staff to check their rosters and emails, to also check any memos or communications.

A quiet area if they just want to read their book in peace or just sit in silence. If one of our team rode their bike to work in the morning and are sweating up a storm, yes, of course we have showers so they can freshen up before their shift. If their uniform was folded up in their bag as they were riding, yes, of course we have an ironing board. Private restrooms for our staff are a must, and yes, of course we have them too. Keeping our staff happy is a priority and as Richard Branson famously stated, “if you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”

Walking forward and to your right you have one of three large televisions mounted and tuned to whatever channel they desire! With a barista quality coffee maker, post-mix soft drink dispenser and a beautiful kitchen with all the utensils. As you come around there is more than enough room to fit 10 staff members comfortably around the wooden dining table. Fancy a game of pool? Well there is a pub-sized pool table to play on, and if staff members aren’t playing they can lay back on one of the four bean bags whilst they wait their turn. Have you ever heard of a breakout room inside a breakout room? Well there is one of them also!

“IF YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES, THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF THE CLIENTS.” 16

ESTRELLA HORNE

40 YEARS

Do you remember dancing for the first time to Queen’s ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ or to Michael Jackson’s ‘Rock with you’? Or do you remember the first time you screamed the lyrics to ‘Escape’? “If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain!” Estrella does! Estrella started her journey here at the Blacktown Workers Club when those songs made their debut. It was October 1979 and music was a big part of why she loved working at the club from the beginning. “After a long shift I used to stay back and relax with my friends at Melodies on level one (where the buffet is now), listening to the great sounds of the piano with a delicious cocktail in my hand” says Estrella. Over 40 years has passed and Estrella has never stopped smiling, providing great customer service has always inspired her, “because if the customer is smiling, I am smiling”. With great customer service, comes Estrella’s even greater hazelnut latte – make sure to give it a go the next time you see her at Impressions Café. Estrella loves coffee but also loves working at Workers. Over the years Estrella has provided great leadership and training to many baristas. Estrella is one of the main reasons the standard of coffee at Impressions is at such a high level. “I’m not saying this because I make the coffee but the Blacktown Workers Impressions Coffee is the best in Blacktown.” Estrella is loved by all; customers, fellow staff members and the club believes she is truly an asset. Never stop smiling Estrella and thank you for your many years of service, we are forever grateful!

HAROLD BECKER A man with a bouquet of flowers in his hands, a man who is there for us, our family, our friends and for our community. Harold Becker, a man who cares. Not many people know what our Welfare Officer does and we would like to get his name out there, we would like to give Harold Becker recognition for what he does amongst our community. Harold Becker became our Welfare Officer back in September 2011, however he has been a loyal member since May 1971. For those who have no family nor friends, for those who really just need a helping hand, Harold is there. On behalf of the club, he visits hospitals and nursing homes to help and assist in whatever is needed, he gives an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on and a reassuring hand. Harold attends funerals on behalf of the club with flowers in his hands, showing his and our support towards the family and friends of the deceased. For many years Harold volunteered for Meals on Wheels and is still helping and supporting the great cause. He is also a helper, speaker and leader in our community’s Stroke Club. If anything is needed or if anyone is in need, once again, Harold is there to help. Harold has been a member of the Blacktown Workers Club since his father held a position on the Board. He has given back to the club and the Blacktown community so much more than can be expected of any one person alone. These selfless acts he carries out each day with utmost professionalism and care deserve to be recognised. Thank you Harold! We appreciate all you do for our members.

OUR LOYAL TEAM During times of change, it is important to look to those that have seen it all before – and are here to lead us through the transition period. We can only imagine the changes that these long-serving employees have experienced during their time with the Workers family. Each one has worked their way up, from floor staff to now being an integral part of the operational management team. They also celebrated a milestone in 2019. We paused them in their busy day to ask them for some cherished memories from their decades of experience at Workers. These familiar faces will need no introduction.

What roles did you have?

What roles did you have?

I started with concierge and customer service attendant roles. I received a promotion to Customer Service Supervisor, followed by Customer Service Manager. I was then given the opportunity to be Venue Manager of Workers Hubertus when we acquired the venue, and over a year ago, was able to come to Workers Sports as Venue Manager.

I started as a waiter in Hi-lights Revolving Restaurant, then went onto become Maitre’d. I did various roles within the club including GPU, barman, cashier, poker machine attendant, doorman, carpark attendant, bar supervisor and duty manager before achieving Venue Manager of Hubertus.

What inspires you?

My fondest memory of my days at Workers is when I got to see INXS play live in the Diamond Showroom. There was a charity event on and somehow the club had managed to bring in INXS to play a few songs on the night.

My team inspire me every day with the hard work that they put in on a daily basis for our customers. I also turn to my mentors who inspire me to think differently about situations to see how I can improve and move forward. They all drive me to do better and be better.

What are you most thankful for? I’m thankful to have been given the opportunity that I have been given in my career at Workers. I’m thankful for the position I am in, which has enabled me to give back to the community, both through the work the club does, but also in my own personal efforts. I’m also thankful to lead such a diverse and awesome team.

18

What is your fondest memory?

What inspires you? Our members and guests inspire me to keep going, to keep thinking of things that can make our club better for them. When you see patrons happy and smiling when they’ve had a great experience at the club and I have been a part of that, that inspires me.

THE DIFFERENCE WE MAKE In 2019, the Blacktown Workers Club Group won the ClubsNSW Clubs & Community award for Support of Amateur Sport. This is the story of a $30 million complex dedicated to local sport. What a time it has been, 60,000 truck movements to move 64 Olympic swimming pools worth of soil to make room for our new look H.E. Laybutt Sporting Complex at Blacktown Workers Sports Club. In May 2017 work began on the massive $30 million dollar development with almost 37,000m2 of luscious green grass laid to sit in front of the two 350-seat capacity grandstands with multiple change rooms, canteens, corporate rooms, two carparks, plaza areas and a 2.7m high by 3m wide elevated board walk which traverses through the riparian zone (land alongside the creek) which links the fields together. All this came together with the help of the Workers Club sporting and sub clubs to create something unique and special for the community. The four playing fields which include two football (soccer) fields, two state grade rugby league fields, and a cricket pitch has over 20 kilometres of pressurised irrigation piping underneath them which will then irrigate 100% of the residual stormwater and irrigation water runoff which is captured in a 1,000,000-litre tank. All four playing surfaces were designed to retain and recycle as much water collected on site as is economically and physically practical. This will make the fields self-sufficient and ecologically sustainable and friendly. Fast forward to November 2018 where there was a big sense of achievement across the board. Construction was completed, all that was left was the mammoth task of landscaping the surrounds of Australia’s largest privately-owned sporting fields. Fast forward again to February 2019 where the trees are blossoming, the grass is freshly cut, the lines for the new fields are being marked out and that sense of ultimate completion was only around the corner. The official opening was held on the 2nd March 2019 which marked a new level in quality sporting complexes for local people to enjoy with 54 acres (21.8 hectares) to facilitate not only football, rugby league and cricket but also lawn bowls, tennis, netball and baseball.

20

The grand opening was a free event for everyone to attend, it consisted of live music, food trucks, kids’ entertainment, rides and the first games to be held on the new fields. The very first games were played by the future of our sporting clubs, our under 6’s junior rugby league and football teams. Played shortly after was our very own men and women from the Australian Army, R.A.A.F. and Navy battling against each other in two games of rugby league. These games were in support and to raise much needed funds for not only White Ribbon Australia but for local organisations such as WASH House and Blacktown Womens & Girls that support those affected by family and domestic violence. The second of March not only set a new standard of grounds to an entirely new level, but it brought a brandnew era to the Blacktown Workers Club Group, it’s members, guests and to the city of Blacktown. “This year we stepped up our efforts past anything ever done before to create an amazing opportunity for our community members to grow, enjoy life and contribute to the community in which they live”, says Kay Kelly, Blacktown Workers Club Group President. There were many boxes that the Group wanted to tick and many boxes were ticked even before Kay Kelly cut the ribbon to the new sporting complex. Ask the question to anyone, when you see a sporting field what do you see? The normal response you would get back would be “somewhere to play sport” or “a place for the kids to run around”. When this question was asked to the Blacktown Workers Club Group, their answers started with Creating, Building, Growing, Caring and Improving. Creating a safe environment for our kids, the kids of Western Sydney to play with their friends competitively and socially. Creating space not only for the kids but for all ages ranging from their youngest of four years of age to the all age men and women still playing in their eighties. Building a pathway for all players and teams to excel their skills and develop a strong mentality for their lives. Building a culture like no other bringing players and teams from all over the state, country and overseas to showcase their abilities on the world-class fields. THE DIFFERENCE WE MAKE

Growing a family with now over 100 teams and over two thousand individuals volunteering, playing and working under the Workers banner in football, rugby league, cricket, lawn bowls, tennis, netball and baseball. The future is now in Workers Sports Club’s backyard. Caring for the wellbeing, giving the 55,000+ members of the Blacktown Workers Club Group and the 340,000 strong community a sense of belonging in providing fields for the ever-growing Blacktown family. Improving the lives of the young and old, giving more opportunity to the community reducing obesity, health problems and giving the community space to grow and enjoy life. $899,807.00 was how much the Blacktown Workers Club Group gave to their sporting and sub clubs in 2018. No other business in Australia provides the level of commitment to sporting and sub clubs. This is not the final figure as the Club has provided two brand new canteen outlets for the football and rugby league clubs to generate revenue by selling food and beverage from their own outlets. The fields and facilities come at a cost to maintain and operate, including the time it takes to mow, mark lines, cleaning and to serve our sporting and sub clubs. The Blacktown Workers Club Group see this as an integral part of who the Workers brand is and their role in the local community to provide these for our community to enjoy. The Blacktown Workers Club Group believe that this is only the beginning of the endless opportunities that the fields and facilities will create, but also providing support to not only amateur sport but support to the quickly expanding community. This is the difference we make.

Grace’s Place will be there to provide support in a safe place where children, teenagers and their families grieving the death of someone they love through homicide, can share their experiences, receive counselling, be involved in therapeutic programs and learn life skills on how to survive the trauma without their loved one. Grace’s Place is named in honour of Grace Lynch, the mother of Anita Cobby and was one of the founding members of the HVSG. Grace was a gentle, caring woman who shared her life and loss with so many, becoming a mother to so many.

OUR COMMUNITY


TEAM RUBICON - $10,000 Litres for the Land The concept is simple. Through club fundraising activities and public donations, millions of litres of water will be purchased and transported to the bush and provided for free to farms and families that need it the most. Sourcing of water will be dependent upon the location. In many areas, water will be purchased from the council through local water carters. However, in areas where there are tight water restrictions the water will be sourced from outside of the local government area and trucked in. Team Rubicon Australia will be responsible for the planning, logistics and delivery of this project. Team Rubicon is made up of Australian Defence Force Veterans who specialise in disaster relief. CANCER PATIENTS FOUNDATION - $8,000 Look Good Feel Better Look Good Feel Better is a free national community service program run by the Cancer Patients Foundation, dedicated to teaching cancer patients how to manage the appearance-related side-effects caused by cancer treatment. Women, men and teens participate in practical workshop demonstrations covering skin care, make-up and head wear, leaving them empowered and ready to face their cancer diagnosis with confidence. Their workshops cover skincare techniques to address common side-effects like dryness and sun sensitivity; makeup tips to help correct and conceal redness, sallowness, pigmentation and dark circles as well as techniques for drawing on eyebrows; and advice on headwear including scarf styling and wig selection.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the Year Ended 31 December 2019

ABOUT THIS REPORT Blacktown Workers Club Limited is a company limited by guarantee, incorporated and domiciled in Australia and is a non-for-profit entity for the purposes of preparing the financial statements. The financial statements are for Blacktown Workers Club Limited as a standalone legal entity. The financial statements were approved for issue by the Directors on 18 February 2020 The financial statements are general purposes financial statements which: • Have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 and Australia Accounting Standards – Reduced Disclosure Requirements of the Australia Accounting Standards Board; • Have been prepared under the historical cost convention; • Are presented in Australian dollars; • Where necessary comparative information has been restated to conform with changes in presentation in the current year; and • Have been prepared on a going concern basis.

New or amended Accounting Standards and Interpretations adopted The Company has adopted all new or amended Accounting Standards and Interpretations issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board (‘AASB’) that are mandatory for the current reporting period. Any new or amended Accounting Standards or Interpretations that are not yet mandatory have not been early adopted. The following Accounting Standards and Interpretations are most relevant to the Company: AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers The Company has adopted AASB 15 from 1 January 2019. The standard provides a single comprehensive model for revenue recognition. The core principle of the standard is that an entity shall recognise revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers, i.e. performance obligations, at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services AASB 16 Leases The Company has adopted AASB 16 from 1 January 2019. The standard replaces AASB 117 ‘Leases’ and for lessees eliminates the classifications of operating leases and finance leases. Except for short-term leases and leases of low-value assets, right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities are recognised in the statement of financial position. Straight-line operating lease expense recognition is replaced with a depreciation charge for the rightof-use assets (included in operating costs) and an interest expense on the recognised lease liabilities (included in finance costs). In the earlier periods of the lease, the expenses associated with the lease under AASB 16 will be higher when compared to lease expenses under AASB 117. However, EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation) results improve as the operating expense is now replaced by interest expense and depreciation in profit or loss. For classification within the statement of cash flows, the interest portion is disclosed in operating activities and the principal portion of the lease payments are separately disclosed in financing activities. For lessor accounting, the standard does not substantially change how a lessor accounts for leases. Impact of adoption AASB 15 and AASB 16 were adopted using the modified retrospective approach and as such comparatives have not been restated. There was no impact from the adoption of AASB 15 Revenue from contracts with customers and AASB 16 Leases on opening retained profits as at 1 January 2019.

Significant judgements i. Estimation of Useful Lives of Assets The company determines the estimated useful lives and related depreciation and amortisation charges for its property, plant and equipment and finite life intangible assets. The useful lives could change significantly as a result of technical innovations or some other event. The depreciation and amortisation charge will increase where the useful lives are less than previously estimated lives, or technically obsolete or non-strategic assets that have been abandoned or sold will be written off or written down.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONTINUED) For the Year Ended 31 December 2019

3. INCOME TAX (CONTINUED) Recognition and Measurement The income tax expense or benefit for the period is the tax payable on that period’s taxable income based on the applicable income tax rate, adjusted by changes in deferred tax assets and liabilities attributable to temporary differences and the adjustment recognised for prior periods, where applicable. The carrying amount of recognised and unrecognised deferred tax assets are reviewed each reporting date. Deferred tax assets recognised are reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that future taxable profits will be available for the carrying amount to be recovered. Previously unrecognised deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that there are future taxable profits available to recover the asset. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset only where there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax assets against current tax liabilities and deferred tax assets against deferred tax liabilities; and they relate to the same taxable authority on either the same taxable entity or different taxable entity’s which intend to settle the claim simultaneously.

Mutuality Principle The company calculates its income in accordance with the mutuality principle which excludes from income, any amounts of subscriptions and contributions from members, and payments received from members for particular services provided by the Club or association, e.g. poker machines, bar and dining room service in the case of social Clubs. The Commissioner of Taxation accepts this method of calculating income as appropriate for recognised Clubs and associations. Amendments to the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 ensure social Clubs continue not to be taxed on receipts from contributions and payments received from members.

Valuation An independent valuation by Andrew Nock Pty Limited of the company’s properties being the land and buildings was carried out in December 2017 with an effective date of December 2017 on the basis of open market value for existing use resulted in a valuation of $156,166,000 (including additions of $29,476,000 since last valuation 2017). As the properties are recorded at cost, the valuation has not been brought to account. The directors do not believe that there has been a material movement in the fair value since the valuation.

Recognition and Measurement All property, plant and equipment is stated at historical cost less depreciation. Historical cost includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the items. Subsequent costs are included in the asset’s carrying amount or recognised as a separate asset, as appropriate, only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the company and the cost of the item can be measured reliably. All other repairs and maintenance are charged to the profit or loss during the financial period in which they are incurred. Useful lives are estimated as follows: Buildings

40 years

Plant and Equipment

5-15 years

Poker Machines

4-5 years

The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at each Statement of Financial Position date. An asset’s carrying amount is written down immediately to its recoverable amount if the asset’s carrying amount is greater than its estimated recoverable amount. Gains and losses on disposals are determined by comparing proceeds with carrying amount. These are included in the profit or loss. Capital works in progress are the cost incurred to date for capital projects that are underway at reporting date. Capital works in progress are not depreciated until they are ready for use and allocated to the appropriate asset category.

Impairment of Assets Non-financial assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. An impairment loss is recognised for the amount by which the asset’s carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount. Recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value-in-use. The value-in-use is the present value of the estimated future cash flows relating to the asset using a pre-tax discount rate specific to the asset or cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. Assets that do not have independent cash flows are grouped together to form a cash-generating unit.

Licences The amount represents the costs incurred in acquiring licences at certain holiday units in Sussex Inlet, Fingal Bay and Uranga.

Recognition and Measurement Poker Machine Entitlements Poker machine entitlements are considered to be intangible assets with an indefinite life as there is no set term for holding the entitlements. As a result the entitlements are not subject to amortisation. Instead, poker machine entitlements are tested for impairment annually and are carried at cost less accumulated impairment losses. Poker machine entitlements are not considered to have an active market, hence the fair value is calculated using the value in use method based on management’s 5 year forecasts.

Licences to Occupy Holiday Units Licences held by the company are considered to be intangible assets with an indefinite life as there is no set term to the contractual agreement. As a result the licences are not subject to amortisation. Instead the licences are tested for impairment annually and are carried at cost less accumulated impairment losses.

Significant judgements Long Service Leave Provision The liability for long service leave is recognised and measured at the present value of the estimated future cash flows to be made in respect to all employees at the reporting date. In determining the present value of the liability, estimates of attrition rates and pay increases through promotion and inflation have been taken into account.

Recognition and Measurement Wages and Salaries, Annual Leave and Sick Leave Liabilities for wages and salaries, including non-monetary benefits, annual leave and accumulating sick leave are recognised in other payables with respect to employees’ services up to the reporting date and are measured at the amounts expected to be paid when the liabilities are settled. Liabilities for non-accumulating sick leave are recognised when the leave is taken and measured at the rates paid or payable.

Long Service Leave The provision for employee benefits relating to long service leave represents the present value of the estimated future cash outflows to be made resulting from employees’ services provided to reporting date. The provision is calculated using expected future increases in wage and salary rates including related on-costs and expected settlement dates based on turnover history and is discounted using the market yields on national government bonds at reporting date which most closely match the terms of maturity with the expected timing of cash flows. The unwinding of the discount is treated as long service leave expense.

Superannuation Plan The company contributes to several defined contribution superannuation plans. Contributions are recognised as an expense as they are made. The company has no legal or constructive obligation to fund any deficit.

15. SUMMARY OF OTHER SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES a. Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents includes cash on hand, deposits held at call with financial institutions, other short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.

b. Goods and Services Tax Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of goods and services tax (GST), except where the amount of GST incurred is not recoverable from the Australian Taxation Office. In these circumstances, the GST is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of the asset or as part the expense. Receivables and payables in the Statement of Financial Position are shown inclusive of GST. The net amount of GST recoverable from, or payable to, the Australian Taxation Office is included as a current asset or liability in the Statement of Financial Position. Cash flows are included in the Statement of Cash Flows on a gross basis, except for the GST component of investing and financing activities, which are disclosed as operating cash flows. Commitments and contingencies are disclosed net of the amount of GST recoverable from, or payable to, the Australian Taxation Office.

c. Trade and Other Receivables Trade debtors and other receivables represent the principal amounts due at reporting date plus accrued interest and less, where applicable, any unearned income and provisions for doubtful accounts, including expected credit losses, as per AASB 9.

d. Inventories Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Costs are assigned on the basis of weighted average costs.

e. Fair Value Estimation The fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities must be estimated for recognition and measurement or for disclosure purposes. The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets such as trading and available-for-sale securities is based on quoted market prices at the Statement of Financial Position date. The quoted market price used for financial assets held by the company is the current bid price; the appropriate quoted market price for financial liabilities is the current ask price.

f. Customer Loyalty Program The company operates a loyalty program where customers accumulated points for dollars spent. The award points are recognised as a separately identifiable component of the initial sale transaction, by allocating the fair value of the consideration received between the award points and the other components of the sale that the award points are recognised at their fair value. Revenue from the award points is recognised when the points are redeemed. The amount of revenue is based on the number of points redeemed relative to the total number expected to be redeemed.

15. SUMMARY OF OTHER SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) g. Financial assets The company made an investment in Clubs 4 Fun, being shares in a company held for the sole purpose of producing an intangible asset. The asset is not yet completed and further investment will be required. A useful life has not yet been assigned as the asset is still under development. The investment has been classified as an intangible asset as future cashflows are expected to be generated directly as a result of this asset. There is expected to be an active market for this investment and therefore the asset will be valued at fair value.
