A message from your president

Following on from the Hong Kong market review carried out in 2009, additional resources have been provided to promote the science of management accounting in Hong Kong. The promotion has resulted in strong growth for CIMA in Hong Kong on all fronts; seeing positive increase in our new student recruitment as well as overall growth in our student and membership population. The strategies set in 2009 are achieving encouraging results and we will continue to put further efforts in rolling them out in the forthcoming year to ride on their success.

Finance Director of Warner Bros), Amy Lam (Group Finance Director of Jardine Shipping Services), Irelan Tam (Regional Finance Director of Johnson & Johnson Hong Kong) and Jenny To (Managing Director of Pernod Ricard). They are amongst some of our many eminent female CIMA business leaders who have successfully overcome ongoing barriers in their career development and reached the top in Asia at the end. In the coming years, I have no doubt there will be many more successful stories of our lady members that we can share with you.

In the past, management accountancy was seen more as a male-orientated profession, perhaps ensuing from our historical costing and manufacturing origin. This perhaps, to a certain extent, was reflected in our membership structure with approximately 40% of our members being female and a relatively lesser representation of women than men occupying senior business positions. This issue was highlighted in one of CIMA thought leadership pieces 'Breaking glass - Strategies for tomorrow's leaders' during the year. From Hong Kong, I would like to take this opportunity to particularly thank four of our members who took part in this report; they are Theresa Chan (Corporate

As the Hong Kong economy becomes more interlinked with the mainland, we see more and more members and students working and travelling between the two places. This provides many challenges as well as opportunities to us. To prepare ourselves to cope with those demands, CIMA is transforming into a more regional organisation to take on those challenges and opportunities. With the directive from the CIMA Council, the global governance structure will move towards the formation of regional boards to provide the necessary speed, autonomy and empowerment essential for meeting the council's objectives. Closer to us, we will see the formation of three boards

namely the Australasia Regional Board, the South East Asia Regional Board and the North Asia Regional Board later this year. The final details have yet to be confirmed and all our members will be kept informed of the latest development over time. It has been my honour to be the divisional president of the CIMA Hong Kong division this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my divisional council members and the various committees for voluntarily and whole-heartedly helping to promote and grow the division together. Not only have they devoted their valuable time to CIMA, everyone has also given more than their best efforts in being the honourable ambassadors in this region to promote management accountancy and financial management for the institute. Last but not least, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Leo Cheung, our immediate past divisional president, for his valuable service to the division as he will be retiring from the divisional council after the AGM in 2011. Thank you all.

Paul Chan FCMA Divisional President, Hong Kong


From the divisional director

In the past two years we have be concentrating our efforts on communicating the CIMA differentiation, to enable the public, employers, tertiary students and potential students to understand what management accountancy is and how our members differ from other accountants. This message has received good feedback especially from two groups; financial accountants wanting to expand their career horizons into other roles, and aspiring senior managers who would like to be more financially literate in-order to excel their career.

On a personal front this year been a very rewarding experience. I have been able to see how CIMA is able to help people’s careers not only upwards but also sideways. Members and students are moving into roles where the skill set learnt in the CIMA training equips them with the knowledge they need. CIMA is regarded as one of the most relevant to business qualifications as we update the syllabus every four years with feedback from over 2,000 employers. This reflects how our qualification trains people to go beyond accountancy and we now truly occupy the space where business and finance meet.

To facilitate these groups of prospective students, in 2010 we introduce a special gateway assessment designed to assess MBA graduates and members of other accounting bodies for direct entrance into the strategic level papers. The assessment looks at different areas taken from the operational and managerial level and serves as a safeguard to ensure that the students will be able to pass the final papers. We are grateful to Hong Kong University SPACE, our partners who have designed a preparatory course for these students to aid their studies. In the coming years we will expect to see more students joining CIMA via these routes.

Hong Kong has continued to shine within CIMA. Our student Amit Chhabra from Johnson Electric scored the highest mark globally in the gateway assessment. Alan Wong from Jardine Matheson came third globally in the performance strategy paper and Richard Bellingham came sixth globally in the financial operations paper. In general the passing marks for the operational and managerial papers in Hong Kong have been higher than the global average for the second year running. This has been achieved by not only attracting students that are capable but also the additional student support resources that have been invested in

the past few years. In the CIMA Global Business Challenge where over 2,000 groups of international university students compete in a business case study, the Hong Kong team won the accolade for the second year running, demonstrating again that the territory is producing some of the finest financial leaders in the world. Lastly, I would also like to thank the divisional council for their direction and my devoted team in Hong Kong for all their enthusiasm and hard work in delivering the excellent services to all our stakeholders.

16 Independent auditor's report to the members of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (Hong Kong division) We have audited the financial statements of the Division set out on pages 17 to 28, which comprise the balance sheet as at December 31, 2010, and the income and expenditure account, statement of changes in head office funds and statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes. Divisional council's responsibility for the financial statements The Institute's constitution and by-laws require the Divisional Council to prepare financial statements that give a true and fair view in accordance with Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and for such internal control as the Divisional Council determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditors' responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit and to report our opinion solely to you, as a body, in accordance with the Institute's constitution and by-laws, and for no other purpose. We do not assume responsibility towards or accept liability to any other person for the contents of this report. We conducted our audit in accordance with Hong Kong Standards on Auditing issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Division's preparation of financial statements that give a true and fair view 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 Division's internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the Divisional Council, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the state of the Division's affairs as at December 31, 2010, and of its surplus and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards.

The Chartered Institute of Management Accounts (Hong Kong division) Notes to the financial statement Year ended 31 December 2010 (Amounts expressed in Hong Kong dollars)

1. General information The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants was incorporated in the United Kingdom under a Royal Charter and operates the Hong Kong Division at the registered address at Suites 1414-1415, 14/F., Jardine House, Central, Hong Kong.

The principal activities of the Hong Kong Division include, inter alia, the promotion of the science of management accountancy and providing member services and student supports by organising networking events and seminars.

2. Significant accounting policies The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards (HKFRSs) covering the Hong Kong Accounting Standards (HKASs) issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Significant accounting policies adopted by the Division in preparing the financial statements are set out below. a) Basis of preparation of the financial statements The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost convention, as modified where appropriate by revaluation of certain financial assets and financial liabilities. The accounting policies used in the financial statements are consistent with those followed in the preparation of the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2009, except that in the current year, the Division has applied for the first time the following amendments that are effective for the current year and are relevant to the operations of the Division: HKFRSs (Amendments Improvements to HKFRSs 2009 The improvements to HKFRSs 2009 comprise a number of minor changes but which have not resulted in any change of accounting policies in the context of the Division. The Division has not early applied the following standards and amendments which have been issued but are not yet effective:

HKFRSs (Amendments) HKFRS 9 HKAS 24 (Revised)

Improvements to HKFRSs 2010 Financial instruments (relating to the classification and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities) Related party disclosures

The Divisional Council anticipates that these standards and amendments not yet applied will have no material impact on the Division's results of operations and financial position. b) Foreign currency transactions The Division maintains its books of account in its functional currency (i.e. the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates). Foreign currency transactions are translated during the year at the rates of exchange ruling at the dates of the transactions. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the reporting date are retranslated at the rates of exchange ruling at that date. Non-monetary items carried at fair value that are denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing on the date when the fair value was determined. Non-monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are not retranslated. Exchange gains or losses arising on the retranslation of monetary items are included in the income and expenditure account. Exchange differences arising on the retranslation of non-monetary items carried at fair value are included in the income and expenditure account except for differences arising on the retranslation of non-monetary items in respect of which gains or losses are recognised in other comprehensive income, in which cases, the exchange differences are also recognised directly as other comprehensive income under a reserve account in Head Office Funds separate from General Funds. c) Financial instruments A financial instrument is defined as any contract that gives rise to a financial asset of one entity and a financial liability or equity instrument of another entity. CIMA Hong Kong Annual Review 2010

22 The Chartered Institute of Management Accounts (Hong Kong division) Notes to the financial statement (continued) Year ended 31 December 2010 (Amounts expressed in Hong Kong dollars) Financial assets/liabilities are recognised in the balance sheet when the Division becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. A) Measurement of financial assets A financial asset is measured at its fair value upon initial recognition. The measurement of financial assets subsequent to initial recognition relating to loans and receivables, which are the financial assets relevant to the Division, are as follows: Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market, and that are created by the Division by providing goods, service or money directly to a receivable. These include trade receivables, time deposits, loans and other receivables. Loans and receivables are recognised in the balance sheet under current assets, except for maturities greater than 12 months after the reporting date which are classified as non-current assets. All purchases or sales of financial assets that require delivery of assets within the time frame established by regulation or convention in the marketplace, are recognised or derecognised on a trade date basis. As at the reporting date, loans and receivables are carried at amortized cost using the effective interest method, less any identified impairment losses. An impairment loss is recognised in the income and expenditure account when there is objective evidence that the asset is impaired, and is measured as the difference between the asset's carrying amount and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate. Impairment losses are reversed in subsequent periods when an increase in the asset's recoverable amount can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognised, subject to a restriction that the carrying amount of the asset at the date the impairment is reversed does not exceed what the amortized cost would have been had the impairment not been recognised.

CIMA Hong Kong Annual Review 2010

B) Measurement of financial liabilities A financial liability is measured at its fair value upon initial recognition. Financial liabilities relating to borrowings and payables, which are the financial liabilities relevant to the Division, are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest rate method as at the reporting date subsequent to initial recognition. Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of the above types of financial assets and financial liabilities are added to or deducted from the fair value of the financial assets or financial liabilities, as appropriate, on initial recognition. d) Property, plant and equipment and depreciation Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, if necessary. All capital expenditure up to the unit value of HK$7,000 are written off in the year of acquisition. Depreciation is provided on a straight line basis on the cost of property, plant and equipment and calculated at the following rates per annum based on their respective estimated useful lives: Leasehold improvements Furniture and fixtures Hi-tech and other office equipment (including computer system)

Over the terms of the lease 100%

33-1/3%

e) Inventories Inventories are valued at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Cost is calculated using the firstin first-out basis and comprises all costs of purchase, costs of conversion and other costs incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and condition. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price at which inventories can be sold in the normal course of business after allowing for the estimated costs of realization.


The Chartered Institute of Management Accounts (Hong Kong division) Notes to the financial statement (continued) Year ended 31 December 2010 (Amounts expressed in Hong Kong dollars)

f) Impairment of assets Assets that have an indefinite useful life are not subject to amortization, but are at least tested annually for impairment and are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. Assets that are subject to amortization are also reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable or that an impairment loss previously recognised no longer exists or may have decreased. If the recoverable amount of an asset is estimated to be less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset is reduced to its recoverable amount. Impairment loss is recognized as an expense immediately, unless the relevant asset is carried at revalue amount, in which case the impairment loss is firstly charged against other comprehensive income to the extent of the amount held in the revaluation reserve in the Head Office Funds with any excess recognized as an expense. Where an impairment loss subsequently reverses, the carrying amount of the asset is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount, which is restricted to the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been previously recognized for the asset. A reversal of an impairment loss is recognized as income immediately, unless the relevant asset is carried at a revalue amount, in which case the reversal of the impairment loss is treated as a revaluation increase under other comprehensive income. g) Operating leases Lease payments under operating leases are accounted for in the income and expenditure account on a straight line basis over the period of the respective leases. h) Revenue recognition Revenue is recognized when it is probable that the economic benefits associated with the transaction will flow to the Division and the amount of the revenue can be measured reliably.

i) Subvention from head office is recognised when funds are received for expenses approved by the Division's Head Office. ii) Workshop and seminar income is recognized upon completion of training or services rendered. iii )Interest income is recognized on an accrual basis that takes into account the effective yield on the assets. i) Cash equivalents Cash equivalents are short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible into known amounts of cash and are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value. For the purpose of the statement of cash flows, cash equivalents also include advances from banks repayable within three months from the date of the advance. j) Provisions Provisions are recognized when the Division has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of past events, it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate of the amount can be made. Where the Division expects a provision to be reimbursed, the reimbursement is recognized as a separate asset when the reimbursement is virtually certain.

Where it is not probable that an outflow of economic benefits will be required, or the amount cannot be estimated reliably, the obligation is disclosed as a contingent liability, unless the probability of outflow of economic benefits is remote.

k) Related parties Two parties are considered to be related if one party has the ability directly or indirectly to control the other party or exercise significant influence over the other party in making financial and operating decisions. Parties are also considered to be related if they are subject to common control or common significant influence, or if they are key management personnel of the Division or its head office, or if they are close members of the related parties.

Critical accounting judgments and key sources of estimation uncertainty In the process of applying Division's accounting policies, which are described in note 2 above, management has made various estimates and judgments (other than those involving estimates) based on past experience, expectations of the future and other information. The key source of estimation uncertainty and the critical accounting judgments that can significantly affect the amounts recognised in the financial statements are set out below. Depreciation of property, plant and equipment The Division reviews the useful lives and residual value of the property, plant and equipment periodically based on the conditions of the assets and other regulatory requirements. If the estimates of useful lives for the assets are revised or there is a change in the useful lives, the amount of depreciation expenses recorded in future periods will change. Inventories Management estimates the net realisable value for inventories based primarily on the latest invoice prices and current market conditions. The Division carries out an inventory review on a product-by-product basis at each reporting date and makes provision for impairment on obsolete and slow-moving items or write-off or write-down inventories to net realisable value. Estimate of fair value of financial instruments The book values of financial assets and financial liabilities relevant to the Division are assumed to approximate their fair values. 11. Fund management The Division's objectives when managing funds from head office are : a) To safeguard the Division's ability to continue as a going concern; b) To support the Division's membership retention and growth; and c) To provide funds for the purpose of strengthening the Division's risk management capability.

The Division regularly reviews and manages its fund requirements to ensure the Division's objectives are met taking into account of its current and future strategies. The Division is not subject to either internally or externally imposed capital requirements.

12. Financial risk management The Division has classified its financial assets in the following category :

The Division has classified its financial liabilities in the following category :

Financial liabilities at amortised cost

Accrued expenses

2010 HK$

2009 HK$

48,381

42,267

All financial instruments are carried at amounts not materially different from their fair values at the reporting date. The Division is exposed to credit risk, liquidity risk and market risk arising in the normal course of its activities in respect of its financial instruments. The Division's risk management objectives, policies and processes mainly focus on minimizing the potential adverse effects of these risks on its financial performance and position by closely monitoring the individual exposure. a) Credit risk The Division's credit risk is primarily attributable to accounts receivable and amount due from Head Office. The maximum exposure to credit risk in the event of the counterparties' failure to perform their obligations as at the reporting date in relation to each class of recognised financial assets is the carrying amount of those assets as stated in the balance sheet. In order to minimize the credit risk, the Divisional Council has reviewed the recoverable amount of each individual receivable at each reporting date to ensure that adequate impairment losses are made for irrecoverable amounts.

The Division has no significant concentration of credit risk. b) Liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that funds will not be made available to meet liabilities as they fall due. The Division's policy is to regularly monitor its liquidity requirements to ensure that sufficient reserves of cash, credit facilities and/or financial support are maintained.
