Chairman’s Report This time last year, I referenced the ‘rollercoaster’ year that was. As a nation, we were all faced with unprecedented restrictions and subsequential change that crafted and shaped the journey of the year that followed. This year has again truly tested us all, not only in our industry but others also. ‘Challenge’ is the word most used, and it gives me great pride to sit on the Board of Bankstown Sports Group, as Chairman, and reflect not only on the challenges, but on the incredible achievements that have been made during an intensely difficult time for so many people. These achievements are truly humbling. They have been made by a business, and its loyal employees, that have banded together during the darkest of times, and have seen success. Success in staying true to the operational values of Bankstown Sports Group. Making a difference is the mantra and making a difference to the staff and their mental wellbeing, the local community, and the wider club community network of ClubsNSW. Something that our team has delivered on in abundance. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a personal thank you to Mark, who recently moved on to a new chapter in his career, the Executive Team at Bankstown Sports Group and the 600+ strong team of staff. It is through you, that this year we have seen a true demonstration of our cultural values that have, in turn, provided the values and experiences that we strive to deliver to our regular patrons and future members.

JOHN MURRAY OAM Chairman We constantly see examples of how the team are exploring and finding ways to surprise and delight our customers while collaborating to help others succeed. Throughout the period, when the going was tough for many who didn’t necessarily warrant support from the government, our team stood up and explored ways to support each other. The doors that were perceived to be closed, were opened by versatile minds that looked beyond the norm and transitioned our venue into a NSW Health approved vaccination hub and then into an HSC examination room; by providing a bed and sustenance to ADF support workers who were brought in to the LGA to perform necessary COVID-19 safety checks; the list goes on.

In a year of shade, a real shining light for us all was the opening of Lady Banks Rooftop, named after the Lady Banks Rose in homage to the muse and wife of our locality’s namesake, Sir Joseph Banks. Whilst the venue experienced a troubled introduction with opening delays, we have seen her flourish into a beautiful success and for those who have yet to experience Lady Banks Rooftop, I would strongly recommend you add it to your list of must visit venues. The outlook is exceptional, the food incredible and, collectively with the service, Lady Banks is without doubt something to be experienced.

“we are looking forward to continuing our path of making a difference to the lives of our members, our staff and the local community.”

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge focal point of the past year, but for normality to persevere, we must look forward. We are looking forward to expanding on the success of the last year, and we are looking forward to continuing our path of making a difference to the lives of our members, our staff and the local community.

CEO’s Report The result? Doors were closed and entire business operations were stood down to manage infection rates and protect their staff and surrounding communities. No business sector went unscathed, particularly so in Southwest Sydney, where the City of CanterburyBankstown was being heralded as a Local Government Area in dire straits. With a staff roster of 600 people, the intensity of the situation was severe. With the physical and, more critically, the mental welfare of staff firmly set in front of mind, the Executive Team, albeit stuck at home, set to work to develop a support programme that flowed through every layer of the business. This included mental health check-ins by dedicated calls from Managers to their staff, 13 weekly, hour-long, YouTube live-stream sessions open to all staff and contracted partners, empathetic consideration of staff on working Visas who had been stood down and were not applicable for Government support, and most notable, the opening of a vaccination clinic in collaboration with Advanced Health Medical Centre.

Michael Clancy Interim CEO

In 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic was stronger than ever and the outlook in Australia was dire as the nation was again thrown into an intense lockdown. Still reeling from the inaugural lockdown, the hospitality and business sectors had to again pivot their ‘normal’ life and adhere to the severe parameters put in place by the Federal and State Governments who were working tirelessly to protect the nation. Transmission numbers went through the roof and Leaders were having to make tough decisions that no-one anticipated.

After successfully vaccinating over 10, 000 members of our community, our vaccination hub was converted to an examination hall for Bankstown Girls High School for the 4-week HSC examination period, during which 440 seated exams took place. However, it did not stop here. The team’s focus had to pivot once again, this time to a date given the moniker ‘Freedom Day’ and on 11 October 2021, having achieved a national vaccination milestone of 80%, we returned to regular operation and reopened to vaccinated members and guests. The enormity of re-opening venues as large and complex as ours was not lost on anyone in the

“We cannot express fully how much we appreciate what you have done for our girls… we’d like to recognise the important impact that you have on our local community…” - Suada Bilali, Principal Bankstown Girls High School business, however the excitement of getting back to ‘normal’ along with the sheer dedication of every employee made this an almost seamless re-opening; I could not be prouder to be a part of a team who worked so tirelessly, with such focus, to welcome our community safely back through our doors. It was as we welcomed back our members that our jewel in the Flinders Centre crown, Lady Banks Rooftop, was finally able to open her doors. The opening has been blessed with success and to be able to delight our customers with a modern, unique, and exciting rooftop destination in South-West Sydney has been a highlight for myself and my team. Since our reopening we have gone from strength to strength, not only operationally but also in the learning and development space. To survive severe staff shortages due to illness and isolation requirements, we have worked to cross train, upskill, promote, and re-educate many of our floor staff to fill gaps in our rosters and the results have been outstanding with a re-energised and re-engaged workforce!

More recently we experienced another significant shift in our business, with the departure of our CEO Mark Condi, after 10 years of service as a CEO and over 30 years of service in the business. I worked with Mark for most of this time and the contribution he has made to the Club and our Community, especially during the difficult pandemic years will not be forgotten. As we move to a new outlook under fresh leadership, our positivity for the future gather’s strength. The past three years have been the most difficult in the history of our 60+ year old club, and we were privileged to be able to help our community during such difficult times. I cannot wait to see the incredible initiatives this team can bring to life in the coming year.

By September, the Bankstown Sports Club Vaccination Clinic successfully administered over 10,000 AstraZeneca vaccines. In addition, The Acres Club played a part in the vaccination drive and ran eight pop-up clinics offering both AstraZeneca and Pfizer, demonstrating true community versatility and resilience.

“The need to offer assistance and support in our community never stops, even in a lockdown” continues Michael. “We are lucky to have a team who worked tirelessly to find ways to keep going. We have been overwhelmed by the response and commitment shown by those who came out in their thousands and got vaccinated, to help get local businesses back on their feet.”

“We cannot thank you enough, for offering us a safe place to fall”

“Bankstown Sports Club has at times felt like a home-away-from-home for us during some of our darkest days as we fly to and from Moree to Westmead children’s hospital for our son. We cannot thank you enough, for offering us a safe place to fall, for scooping us up when we were not in a state to care for ourselves and the world seemed like a very lonely place with little hope.” Anonymous, Mother of child in care.

Flood Relief Efforts A Note From Rebecca Miller​, National Fundraising Manager Contributed April 2022 Disaster Relief Australia (DRA) volunteers have been on the ground in Coraki for 7 waves/weeks now with wave 8 beginning to arrive at our Field Operating Base (FOB) tomorrow. Over 650 volunteers have deployed in response to 500 requests for assistance. 25,000 volunteer hours have contributed to over $1million of community value. The contribution of Bankstown Sports Group was the first donation received and has gone directly to help fund flood recovery on the ground. The township of Coraki, NSW, generously opened their hearts to our DRA volunteers and in turn the veteran led volunteers began the community recovery process. Aside from providing much needed assistance to flood affected homeowners, the disaster relief teams have also worked on community tasks like cleaning up the bowls club to give people a chance to come together. They also laid fresh wood chips in playgrounds to give the children a safe place to play again. Thousands of safety masks have been used, hundreds of pairs of gumboots, equipment such as pressure cleaners and heavy equipment hire and hundreds of litres of cleaning solutions. Bankstown Sports Group’s $200,000 contribution to DRA has provided real and lasting assistance. Annual Report 2021 - 2022

Sport & Community In February 1958, The Bankstown District Cricket Association took the initiative and passed a motion to call a meeting to discuss the idea of a community club with other interested sporting bodies. Delegates met for the first time on April 23, and born out of that meeting was a decision to officially register Bankstown District Sports Club Ltd under the Companies Act in August 1958. At inception, the Club’s charter was to sponsor sports and foster it. It was a prerequisite that members and their children be actively involved in sport, the intention being that members’ children go on to become members themselves, carrying on the tradition of promoting sports in the area and nurturing the community spirit that developed. Today, the strength of this community spirit remains core to the DNA of Bankstown Sports who are proud to be supporting over 35 different sporting clubs and investing much needed funds to each of the nominated clubs. Community sports has been majorly impacted by the global pandemic experienced over the last couple of years. However, the strength and desire of the club, and it’s team of staff to continue providing the community with a trusted backbone of traditional values has seen some incredible success during a period of severe challenge.

Of note: •

Bankstown Sports Athletics Club saw glory as Eleanor Patterson was crowned World High Jump Champion by winning the Gold Medal in the Women’s High Jump at the 2022 World Athletics Championships. The reigning World Indoor Silver Medallist was ranked world number 5 heading into the Championships before she cleared the winning 2.02m which equaled the Australian and Oceania records. In January 2021, Bankstown Sports Group contributed $1 million of a $1.5 million to the Canterbury - Bankstown community, securing the future of local community sport with the major facility upgrade of the Mark & Steve Waugh Pavilion at Canterbury Bankstown’s Memorial Oval. The upgrade will not only focus on refurbishing the pavilion itself, but also improving female amenities and disability access. The redevelopment will also ensure greater accessibility to the wider Bankstown community by updating external and internal pathways as well as providing improved lighting to the ground to allow for night matches and community events.

Critical to the continued success of Bankstown Sports is that the Club’s charter has always been supportive of grassroots junior sport and continues to strive to provide low-cost opportunities to both Bankstown and Hills Shire participants.

Lady Banks Rooftop Bar Blooms In Homage To It’s Locality A Sky-Soaring Haven of Botanical Beauty in the Heart of Sydney.

Bankstown Sports Group’s most ambitious venture, Lady Banks Rooftop Bar opened for business on 14 October, 2021. The opulent rooftop oasis emerges as the jewel in the crown of the newly-developed commercial building, Flinders Centre, located in the heart of Bankstown. Positioned on the 10th floor, Sydney’s largest rooftop setting boasts unrivalled views of the city’s landscape right through to the Blue Mountains and has proven to be a welcome destination venue to south-west Sydney. Lady Banks Rooftop plays tribute to its muse, the Lady Banks rose, named for Lady Dorothea Banks, wife of botanist and Bankstown namesake, Sir Joseph Banks. Taking the design to new heights was Pony Design Co. who drew their inspiration from the horizon and heritage of the destination. Seeped in earthy, neutral tones and textures, the bar, internal dining and terrace areas seamlessly balance all weather aspects to provide the ultimate reprieve for customers to enjoy all year round. The internal dining area finishes and furniture selections are pulled together to form a timeless palette of shades in muted tones; combining warm timbers, fresh whites and natural stones.

At the heart of the internal dining area sits an inviting fireplace and the floor to ceiling bi-fold doors open up to a spectacular outdoor oasis. To complement its stunning floral installations and interior pieces, guests have enjoyed being indulged with Lady Banks Rooftop’s equally exquisite menu. Venue Manager Francesco Motta, Head Chef Naz Islam and Bar Manager Iris Boci, have combined their talent and industry expertise to ensure that flavour, colour and aroma infuse the Lady Banks Rooftop drink and food offering. Lady Banks Rooftop serves a wide-selection of handpicked wines, beers and classic and specially-crafted cocktails as well as a fresh and contemporary Middle-Eastern-inspired menu made with sharing in mind. The final result is a sophisticated, multi-seasonal sanctuary for customers to unwind with friends and family or to savour the luxe surroundings in solitude. Lady Banks Rooftop is the pièce de résistance of The Flinders Centre and leads the charge in changing the face of Bankstown into a truly desirable destination.

Mr. Condi has resigned from his position on 11 August 2022, after which, Michael Clancy (interim CEO) is appointed as the Company Secretary. c) Principal Activities The principal activities of the Company during the course of the financial year were the promotion of sport and games and the operation of a Licensed Club. The company has also started to acquire property for long term investment. d) Operating Results The Net Profit after Tax and Objectives for the year ended 30 June 2022 amounted to $10,015,435 ($20,813,892-2021 surplus), a decrease of $10,798,457. This profit is after including, depreciation and impairment of non-current assets $14,171,376 ($12,734,721-2021) and income tax expense $640,423 (($510,532) - 2021). The decrease in Net Surplus after Tax and Objectives, is due to a decrease in total income in FY2022. During a significant part of the FY2022 year, the Club was operating under restrictions imposed by the NSW Government due to COVID-19. e) Objectives The short and long term objectives of the Company are to continue to provide the very best facilities for its members and guests, support and foster sport in the local area and provide a high level of financial support to community organisations. The strategy for achieving these objectives is to diversify income streams and to lessen the reliance on gaming revenue.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2022

1.

Corporate Information The financial statements of Bankstown District Sports Club Limited for the year ended 30 June 2022 were authorised for issue with a resolution of directors on 13th September 2022. The Company is incorporated and domiciled in Australia as a Company limited by guarantee. In accordance with the Constitution of the Company, every member of the Company undertakes to contribute an amount to $4 per member in the event of the winding up of the Company during the time that he or she is a member or within one year thereafter. The nature of the operations and principal activities of the Company are described in the directors’ report.

2. Summary of significant accounting policies a. Basis of Preparation The financial report is a general-purpose financial report that has been prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards, Australian Accounting Interpretations, other authoritative pronouncements of the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB), International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and the Corporations Act 2001. Australian Accounting Standards set out accounting policies that the AASB has concluded would result in a financial report containing relevant and reliable information about transactions, events, and conditions to which they apply. Compliance with Australian Accounting Standards ensures that the financial statements and notes also comply with International Financial Reporting Standards. Material accounting policies adopted in the preparation of this financial report are presented below and they have been consistently applied unless otherwise stated. Except for cash flow information, the financial statements have been prepared on an accrual basis and are based on historical costs, modified where applicable, by the measurement at fair value of selected non-current assets, financial assets and financial liabilities. This financial report has been prepared under the Going Concern concept. The club was closed from 26 June 2021 and re-opened 11 October 2021. This closure has had an effect on the annual result, but the club has traded well since it has re-opened in October 2021. b.

Changes in Accounting Standards There are no changes to accounting standards during the year.

c.

Changes in Accounting Policies There were no changes in accounting policies during the year.

d. Inventories Inventories are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Income Tax In accordance with the concept of mutuality, income tax is liable on income derived from non-members and other parties. The charge for current income tax is based on the surplus for the year, adjusted for any non-assessable or disallowed items. It is calculated using the tax rates that have been enacted at the end of financial year deferred tax is accounted for using the balance sheet liability method in respect of temporary differences arising between the tax base of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the financial statements. No deferred tax will be recognised from the initial recognition of an asset or liability, excluding a business combination, where there is no effect on accounting, or taxable profit or loss. Deferred tax liability is calculated at the tax rates they are expected to apply in the period when an asset is realised, or a liability is settled. Deferred tax is credited in the income statement, except where it relates to items that may be credited to equity, in which case the deferred tax is adjusted against equity.

Annual Report 2021 - 2022

/ 40


NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2022 (CONTINUED)

2. Summary of significant accounting policies (Continued) e. Deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that future tax profit will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilised. The amount of benefits brought to account, or which may be realised in the future, is based on the assumption that no adverse change will occur in income tax legislation and the anticipation that the economic entity will derive sufficient future assessable income to enable the benefit to be realised and comply with conditions of deductibility imposed by the law. f.

Employee Benefits Provision is made for the company’s liability for employee benefits arising from services rendered by employees to the end of the reporting period. Employee provisions that are expected to be settled within one year have been measured at the amounts expected to be paid when the liability is settled. Employee provisions payable later than one year have been measured at the present value of the estimated future cash outflows to be made for those benefits. In determining the liability, consideration is given to employees’ wage increases and the probability that the employee may not satisfy vesting requirements. Those cash outflows are discounted using market yields on national government bonds with terms to maturity that match the expected timing of cash flows attributable to employee provisions.

g. Leases The company has adopted AASB 16 Leases from 1 July 2020 and assesses at contract inception whether a contract is, or contains, a lease. That is, if the contract conveys the right to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration. The Company applies a single recognition and measurement approach for all leases, except for short-term leases and leases of lowvalue assets. The Company recognises lease liabilities to make lease payments and right-of-use assets representing the right to use the underlying assets. Right-of-use asset The Company recognises right-of-use assets at the commencement date of the lease (i.e., the date the underlying asset is available for use). Right-of-use assets are measured at cost, less any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, and adjusted for any remeasurement of lease liabilities. The cost of right-of-use assets includes the amount of lease liabilities recognised, initial direct costs incurred, and lease payments made at or before the commencement date less any lease incentives received. Right-of-use assets are depreciated on a straight-line basis over the shorter of the lease term and the estimated useful lives of the assets. If ownership of the leased asset transfers to the Company at the end of the lease term or the cost reflects the exercise of a purchase option, depreciation is calculated using the estimated useful life of the asset. The right-of-use assets are also subject to amortisation. The first-time adoption of AASB 16 Leases was for year ended 30 June 2021 and this resulted in an increase in assets of $1,558,421.

Annual Report 2021 - 2022

/ 41


NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2022 (CONTINUED)

2. Summary of significant accounting policies (Continued) g. Leases (Continued) Lease liability At the commencement date of the lease, the Company recognises lease liabilities measured at the present value of lease payments to be made over the lease term. The lease payments include fixed payments (including in-substance fixed payments) less any lease incentives receivable, variable lease payments that depend on an index or a rate, and amounts expected to be paid under residual value guarantees. The lease payments also include the exercise price of a purchase option reasonably certain to be exercised by the Company and payments of penalties for terminating the lease, if the lease term reflects the Company exercising the option to terminate. Variable lease payments that do not depend on an index or a rate are recognised as expenses (unless they are incurred to produce inventories) in the period in which the event or condition that triggers the payment occurs. In calculating the present value of lease payments, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate at the lease commencement date because the interest rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable. After the commencement date, the amount of lease liabilities is increased to reflect the accretion of interest and reduced for the lease payments made. In addition, the carrying amount of lease liabilities is remeasured if there is a modification, a change in the lease term, a change in the lease payments (e.g., changes to future payments resulting from a change in an index or rate used to determine such lease payments) or a change in the assessment of an option to purchase the underlying asset. The first-time adoption of AASB 16 Leases was for year ended 30 June 2021 and this resulted in an increase in Liabilities of $1,631,459. Short term leases and leases of low-value assets The Company applies the short-term lease recognition exemption to its short-term leases of machinery and equipment (i.e., those leases that have a lease term of 12 months or less from the commencement date and do not contain a purchase option). It also applies the lease of low-value assets recognition exemption to leases of office equipment that are considered to be low-value. Lease payments on shortterm leases and leases of low-value assets are recognised as expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term h.

Comparative Figures Where required by Accounting Standards, comparative figures have been adjusted to conform with changes in presentation for the current financial year.

i.

Property, Plant and Equipment i. Property, Plant and Equipment are brought to account at cost, or at independent valuation where cost cannot be ascertained, less where applicable, any accumulated depreciation. The carrying amount of property, plant and equipment is reviewed annually by Directors to ensure it is not in excess of the recoverable amount from these assets. The recoverable amount is assessed on the basis of the expected net cash flows, which will be received from the asset’s employment and subsequent disposal. ii.

Buildings are depreciated on a straight-line basis, whereas all other depreciable assets are on a diminishing value basis over their estimated lives. Buildings on leasehold land are written off on the consideration of the remaining term of the lease, likelihood of the lease being renewed, and the present cash generation ability of the building.

iii. Land and buildings are revalued by a professional independent valuer every three years. That valuation is shown in the notes to and forming part of the financial statements, but not the actual statement of financial position.

Annual Report 2021 - 2022

/ 42


NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2022 (CONTINUED) 2. Summary of significant accounting policies (Continued) i. Property, Plant and Equipment (Continued) iv. In the earlier years of the Company, there was a regular revaluation of real estate being land and buildings and the revaluation was expressed in the statement of financial position. That policy ceased in 1986. Due to the time periods when such revaluations occurred it appears impossible to fully apply AASB116: Property, Plant and Equipment, whereby such assets are to be reduced back to their original cost. The departure from this standard is considered to have an immaterial effect. v.

In this year, as in previous years, the Company at 30 June has building works under construction. Advice is received annually from the Company’s quantity surveyors, Kinlay Grinham Casey Burne as to completed works and that are still under construction at 30 June. The quantity surveyor further advises as to completed works in respect of dividing costs between buildings, plant and equipment and repairs.

vi. When real estate is purchased, land is brought in (along with buildings) at a value as given by a qualified independent valuer. For real estate purchases with the object of development purposes, the acquisition consideration is directed to land only, irrespective of a building being situated on that land. vii. Depreciation rates for each class of depreciable assets are: Class of fixed assets Depreciation rate Buildings 1-10% Poker Machines 21% Motor Vehicles 18.5% Other Plant and Equipment 1.5 – 40% Gains and losses on disposal are determined by comparing proceeds with the carrying amount. These gains and losses are recognised in the Profit and Loss and Other Comprehensive Income in the period in which they arise. viii. The potential capital gains tax on the disposal of applicable land and buildings and any other assets subject to capital gain tax has not been taken into account. j.

Intangibles - Poker Machine Entitlements The Directors believe that the value shown in respect of poker machine entitlements is based on an active market at 30 June 2022, and accordingly the values are not impaired, and as such, entitlements have an indefinite life and amortisation need not be considered. Each poker machine licence is an effective cash generating unit.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2022 (CONTINUED)

2. Summary of significant accounting policies (Continued) k. Revenue Trading revenue is recognised upon the delivery of goods and services to customers. Interest revenue is recognised at the earliest of receipt or being due and receivable. The profit and loss on disposal of assets is brought to account at the date an unconditional contract comes into being. Australian Accounting Standard AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers has been fully applied. The Company was in receipt of $1,200,000 for Job Saver as part of the NSW State Government Economic Stimulus, which has been recognised as non-taxable income in accordance with taxation law. Rental income is brought to account i. when it’s received or it is receivable, or ii. where a rent-free period is involved, the benefit of the entire lease is taken into account and is apportioned over the lease period, or iii. upfront receipt in relation to a signed lease is brought to account as income, over the lease period. l.

Cash and Cash Equivalents For the purposes of the statement of cash flows, cash includes cash on hand and at bank.

m. Trade and Other Receivables Sales made on credit and due in 30 days are included in Trade Debtors at balance date net of a provision for amounts estimated to be uncollectible. The Company does not have any material risk in this area. Other debtors have been complying with their obligations on a timely basis to the extent that there is presently no material credit risk. n.

Trade Creditors Liabilities are recognised for amounts to be paid in the future for goods and services received whether or not billed to the Company. Trade accounts are normally settled within 30 days unless there are specific arrangements to the contrary.

o.

Bank Bill Facility The bank bill facility in current liabilities comprises the current portion of the Company’s bank bill repayment within one year. The bank bill facility is repayable in minimum quarterly installments of $1,000,000. The Company does have the right to make additional reductions in principle. The bill bears interest at the bank’s interest rate plus a margin. The Company is required to submit to the bank an annual capital budget for approval. The part of interest that relates post 30 June is included as a prepayment.

p.

Subscription Income Membership fees have been abolished from 4 April 2022 onwards.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2022 (CONTINUED)

2. Summary of significant accounting policies (Continued) q. Goods and Services Tax (GST) Receivables and Payables in the statement of financial position are shown inclusive of GST. Revenues, expenses, and assets are recognised net of the amount of 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 an item of the expense. r.

Impairment of Assets At each reporting date the Company reviews the carrying value of its assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have been impaired. If such an indication exists, the recoverable of the assets, being the higher of the assets fair value less costs to sell, and value in use, is compared to the assets carrying value. Any excess of the assets carrying value over its recoverable amount is expensed to the statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income. Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of the cash generating unit to which that asset belongs. The following impairment write offs were recorded: Impairment of assets

The investment impairment was due to the slowdown in performance of the investment in “The Acre Restaurant Group”, which is still trading, but with a reduced footprint. It has been severely impacted due to COVID restrictions over the past couple of years. s.

Investment property Investment property consists of local real estate and it is held for the purpose of deriving rental income and for future development. All tenant leases are on an arm’s length basis.

t.

The interest rate as at 30th June was 2.46%, with the average for the year being 2.36% (In 2021 the interest rate at 30th June was 2.26% and the average for the year 2.26%). In accordance with the finance agreement in place, the Bank has the right to give notice to the effect that all indebtedness will convert to a current liability. In the ordinary course of events this is not expected to occur. Westpac will support the Company through this COVID impacted period and provide an extension of the current facility. Bank indebtedness is made up of: Cash advance facility - 1 20,000,000 This facility has quarterly principal reductions of $1,000,000 commencing November 2018 and matures 12.08.2022 Cash advance facility - 2 40,000,000 This facility matures 12.08.2022 Cash advance facility - 3 3,000,000 This facility matures 12.08.2022 Cash advance facility - 4 7,500,000 This facility matures 12.08.2022 Cash advance facility - 5 3,500,000 This facility matured on 30.10.18 and then $2,581,453 became an equipment loan.

The expected interest rate rises are within the Company’s serviceability. With respect to liquidity, the Company’s development in gaming capacity and broadened its income base with facilities such as the Brewhouse Bar, Lucky Cheng’s, La Piazza, a multi-level commercial building - Flinders Centre, with the rooftop bar Lady Banks, from previous years has continued to perform. The Company also has real estate that may be disposed of if liquidity demands. The Company has a cash flow budget which is continually monitored and updated. Apart from bank indebtedness other areas of financial risk are minimal. Sensitivity Analysis The Company has performed a sensitivity analysis relating to its exposure to Interest Rate Risk at balance date. This sensitivity analysis demonstrates the effect on the current year results and equity which could result from a change in these risks. Interest Rate Risk Sensitivity Analysis At 30 June 2022, the effect on surplus and equity as a result of changes in the Interest Rate Risk, with all other variables remaining constant would be as follows: Change in surplus

INDEPENDENT AUDIT REPORT Independent Audit Report to the members of Bankstown District Sports Club Limited ABN 88 000 243 916 Opinion I have audited the financial report of Bankstown District Sports Club Limited, which comprises of the consolidated statement of financial position, consolidated statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, consolidated statement of changes in equity, consolidated statement of cash flows, notes to the financial statements (including summary of significant accounting policies) and directors’ declaration. In my opinion; a. the accompanying financial report of Bankstown District Sports Club Limited and Controlled Entities is in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001, including; i. ii. b.

Giving a true and fair view of the Group’s financial position as at 30 June 2022 and of its financial performance for the year ended; and Complying with Australian Accounting Standards and the Corporations Regulations 2001.

the financial report also complies with International Reporting Standards as disclosed in Note 1.

Basis for Opinion I conducted this audit in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards. My responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Report section of my report. I am independent of the company in accordance with the auditor independence requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 and the ethical requirements of the Accounting Professional and Ethical Standards Board’s APES 110; Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (the Code) that are relevant to my audit of the financial report in Australia. I have also fulfilled my other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the Code. I confirm that the independence declaration required by the Corporations Act 2001, which has been given to the directors of the company, would be in the same terms if given to the directors as at the same time of the auditor’s report. I believe that the audit evidence I have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for my opinion. Information Other than the Financial Report and Auditor’s Report Thereon The directors are responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included in the Company’s annual report for the year ended 30 June 2022, but does not include the financial report and my auditor’s report thereon. My opinion on the financial report does not cover the other information and accordingly I do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with my audit of the financial report, my responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial report or my knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If, based on the work I have performed, I conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, I am required to report that fact. I have nothing to report in this regard. Responsibilities of the Directors for the Financial Report The directors of the company are responsible for the preparation of the financial report that gives a true and fair view in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards and the Corporations Act 2001 and for such internal controls as the directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of the financial report that gives a true and fair view and is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the financial report, the directors are responsible for assessing the company’s ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, the matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless the directors either intend to liquidate the company or to cease operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so.

INDEPENDENT AUDIT REPORT Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Report. My objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial report as a whole is free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes my opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of this financial report. As part of an audit in accordance with the Australian Auditing Standards, I exercise professional judgement and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. I also: -

-

-

-

-

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial report, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsible to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for my opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control. Obtain an understanding of the internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control. Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by the directors. Conclude on the appropriateness of the directors’ use of going concern basis accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If I conclude that a material uncertainty exists, I am required to draw attention in my auditor’s report to the related disclosures in the financial report or, if such disclosures are inadequate to modify my opinion. My conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of my auditor’s report. However, future events or conditions may cause the company to cease to continue as a going concern. Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the financial report, including the disclosures and whether the financial report represents the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation. Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the financial information of the entities or business activities within the Group to express an opinion on the financial report. I am responsible for the direction, supervision and performance of the Group audit. I remain solely responsible for the audit opinion.

I communicate with the directors regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that I identify during my audit.
