QUEENSLAND INDEPENDENT EDUCATION UNION OF EMPLOYEES NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE ACCOUNTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 AUGUST 2010 1

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES This financial report is a special purpose financial report prepared in order to satisfy the financial reporting requirements of the Industrial Relations Act (Qld) 1999. The financial report has been prepared on an accruals basis and is based on historical costs and does not take into account changing money values, or except where specifically stated, current valuations of non-current assets. The following material accounting policies, which are consistent with the previous period unless otherwise stated, have been adopted in the preparation of these financial statements. (a) Depreciation Depreciation is calculated on a declining balance basis so as to write off the full net cost of each depreciable non-current asset over its expected useful life. (b) Employee Entitlements The amounts expected to be paid to employees for their pro-rata entitlements of long service and annual leave are accrued annually at current pay rates having regard to experience of employee’s departures and period of service. (c) Cash For purposes of the statement of cash flows, cash includes deposits at call which are readily convertible to cash on hand and are used in the cash management function on a day to day basis, net of outstanding bank overdrafts. (d) Income Tax The association is exempt from income tax under section 50-15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act, 1997. (e) Leased non-current assets A distinction is made between finance leases which effectively transfer from the lessor to the lessee substantially all the risks and benefits incident to ownership of leased non-current assets (finance leases), and operating leases under which the lessor effectively retains substantially all such risks and benefits. Finance leases are capitalised. A lease asset and liability are established at the present value of minimum lease payments. Lease payments are allocated between the principal component of the lease liability and the interest expense. The lease asset is amortised in a straight line basis over the term of the lease, or where it is likely that the economic entity will obtain ownership of the asset, the life of the asset. Operating lease payments are charged to the profit and loss account in the periods in which they are incurred as this represents the pattern of benefits derived from the leased assets. Page 7

NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE ACCOUNTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 AUGUST 2010 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) (f)

Recoverable amount of non-current assets

The recoverable amount of an asset is the net amount expected to be recovered through the net cash inflows arising from its continued use and subsequent disposal. Where the carrying amount of a non-current asset is greater than its recoverable amount the asset is revalued to its recoverable amount. The expected net cash flows included in determining recoverable amounts of non-current assets are not discounted to their present values. 2.

QUEENSLAND INDEPENDENT EDUCATION UNION OF EMPLOYEES INDEPENDENT AUDIT REPORT To the members of the Queensland Independent Education Union of Employees Report on the Financial Report This special purpose financial report comprises the statement of income, balance sheet, statement of changes in accumulated funds, statement of cash flows, accompanying notes to the financial statements and the certificates of the committee of management and accounting officer for the year ended 31 August 2010. Responsibility of the Committee of Management and Accounting Officer The committee of management and accounting officer are responsible for the preparation and true and fair presentation of the financial report in accordance with the Queensland Industrial Relations Act 1999. This includes responsibility for the maintenance of adequate accounting records and internal controls that are designed to prevent and detect fraud and error, and for the accounting policies and accounting estimates inherent in the financial report. Auditors Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial report to the members of the Union. Our Audit was conducted in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards in order to provide reasonable assurance whether the financial report is free of material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial report. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial report, whether due to fraud or error. In making these risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity's preparation and fair presentation of the financial report 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 entity's internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the committee, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial report. The financial report has been prepared for distribution to members for the purpose of fulfilling the committee's financial reporting obligation under the Queensland Industrial Relations Act 1999. We disclaim any assumption of responsibility for any reliance on this report or on the financial report to which it relates to any person other than the members, or for any purpose other than that for which it was prepared. We believe that the audit evidence that we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Independence In conducting our audit, we followed applicable independence requirements of Australian professional ethical pronouncements and the Queensland Industrial Relations Act 1999. Page 13
