Basis of preparation

2.1

Statement of compliance The financial statements are prepared in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (FRS).

2.2

Basis of measurement The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for the following material items in the statement of financial position:  Financial assets – investments

FS7


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2014

2.3

Functional and presentation currency The financial statements are presented in Singapore dollars (S$) which is the Association’s functional currency.

2.4

Use of estimates and judgements The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with FRS requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates. Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimates are revised and in any future periods affected. Information about assumptions and estimation uncertainty that have a significant risk of resulting in a material adjustment within the next financial year are included in the following notes:  Note 18 – valuation of financial instruments Measurement of fair values A number of the Association’s accounting policies and disclosures require the measurement of fair values for financial assets and liabilities. The Association has an established control framework with respect to the measurement of fair values. This includes the Investment Committee that has overall responsibility for all significant fair value measurements and reports directly to the Board of Trustees. Third party confirmations are used to ascertain fair values of investments in financial instruments. The Investment Committee assesses and documents the evidence obtained from the third party to support the conclusion that such valuations meet the requirements of FRS, including the level in the fair value hierarchy in which such valuations should be classified. Significant valuation issues are reported to the Association’s Audit Committee. When measuring the fair value of an asset or liability, the Association uses market observable data as far as possible. Fair values are categorised into different levels in the fair value hierarchy based on the inputs used in the valuation techniques as explained in note 18. Other than the measurement of fair values, management is of the opinion that there is no other instance of application of judgement which is expected to have a significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements.

2.5

Changes in accounting policies Offsetting of financial assets and financial liabilities Under the Amendments to FRS 32 Financial Instruments: Presentation – Offsetting Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, to qualify for offsetting, the right to set off a financial asset and a financial liability must not be contingent on a future event and must be enforceable both in the normal course of business and in default, insolvency or bankruptcy of the entity and all counterparties. There is no financial impact to the Association’s statement of financial position arising from the adoption of the Amendments to FRS 32.

Significant accounting policies The accounting policies set out below have been applied consistently to all periods presented in these financial statements.

3.1

Foreign currency transactions Transactions in foreign currencies are translated to the Association’s functional currency at exchange rates at the dates of the transactions. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the reporting date are retranslated to the functional currency at the exchange rate at that date. The foreign currency gain or loss on monetary items is the difference between amortised cost in the functional currency at the beginning of the year, adjusted for effective interest and payments during the year, and the amortised cost in foreign currency translated at the exchange rate at the end of the year. Non-monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies that are measured at fair value are retranslated to the functional currency at the exchange rate at the date that the fair value was determined. Non-monetary items in a foreign currency that are measured in terms of historical cost are translated using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. Foreign currency differences arising from retranslation are recognised in income or expenditure.

3.2

Plant and equipment Recognition and measurement Items of plant and equipment are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Cost includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the asset. Purchased software that is integral to the functionality of the related equipment is capitalised as part of that equipment. When parts of an item of plant and equipment have different useful lives, they are accounted for as separate items (major components) of plant and equipment.

FS9


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2014

The gain or loss on disposal of an item of plant and equipment (calculated as the difference between the net proceeds from disposal and the carrying amount of the item) is recognised in income or expenditure. Subsequent costs The cost of replacing a component of an item of plant and equipment is recognised in the carrying amount of the item if it is probable that the future economic benefits embodied within the component will flow to the Association and its cost can be measured reliably. The carrying amount of the replaced component is derecognised. The costs of the day-to-day servicing of plant and equipment are recognised in income or expenditure as incurred. Depreciation Depreciation is based on the cost of an asset, less its residual value. Significant components of individual assets are assessed and if a component has a useful life that is different from the remainder of that asset, that component is depreciated separately. Depreciation is recognised as an expense in income or expenditure on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of each component of an item of plant and equipment. Depreciation is recognised from the date that the plant and equipment are installed and are ready for use, or in respect of internally constructed assets, from the date that the asset is completed and ready for use. The estimated useful lives for the current and comparative years are as follows:    

Computer equipment Furniture and fittings Office equipment Office renovation

3 years 5 years 5 years 3 years

Depreciation methods, useful lives and residual values are reviewed at the end of each reporting period and adjusted if appropriate.

3.3

Impairment Non-derivative financial assets A financial asset not carried at fair value through income or expenditure is assessed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any objective evidence that it is impaired. A financial asset is impaired if objective evidence indicates that a loss event has occurred after the initial recognition of the asset, and that the loss event has a negative effect on the estimated future cash flows of that asset that can be estimated reliably.

FS10


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2014

Objective evidence that financial assets are impaired can include default or delinquency by a debtor, restructuring of an amount due to the Association on terms that the Association would not consider otherwise, indications that a debtor will enter bankruptcy, adverse changes in the payment status of borrowers or issuers in the Association, economic conditions that correlate with defaults or the disappearance of an active market for a security. In addition, for an investment in an equity security, a significant or prolonged decline in its fair value below its cost is objective evidence of impairment. Loans and receivables The Association considers evidence of impairment for loans and receivables at both a specific asset and collective level. All individually significant loans and receivables are assessed for specific impairment. All individually significant receivables found not to be specifically impaired are then collectively assessed for any impairment that has been incurred but not yet identified. Loans and receivables that are not individually significant are collectively assessed for impairment by grouping together loans and receivables with similar risk characteristics. In assessing collective impairment, the Association uses historical trends of the probability of default, timing of recoveries and the amount of loss incurred, adjusted for management’s judgement as to whether current economic and credit conditions are such that the actual losses are likely to be greater or lesser than suggested by historical trends. An impairment loss in respect of a financial asset measured at amortised cost is calculated as the difference between its carrying amount and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the asset’s original effective interest rate. Losses are recognised in income or expenditure and reflected in an allowance account against receivables. Interest on the impaired asset continues to be recognised. If the amount of impairment loss subsequently decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognised, then the previously recognised impairment loss is reversed through income or expenditure. Non-financial assets The carrying amounts of the Association’s non-financial assets are reviewed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any indication of impairment. If any such indication exists, then the asset’s recoverable amount is estimated. An impairment loss is recognised if the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated recoverable amount. Impairment losses recognised in prior periods are assessed at each reporting date for any indications that the loss has decreased or no longer exists. An impairment loss is reversed if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount. An impairment loss is reversed only to the extent that the asset’s carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined, net of depreciation or amortisation, if no impairment loss had been recognised.

3.4

Financial instruments Non-derivative financial assets The Association initially recognises loans and receivables on the date that they are originated. All other financial assets (including assets designated at fair value through income or expenditure) are recognised initially on the trade date, which is at the date that the Association becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

FS11


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2014

The Association derecognises a financial asset when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or it transfers the rights to receive the contractual cash flows on the financial asset in a transaction in which substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the financial asset are transferred, or it neither transfers nor retains substantially all of the risks and rewards of ownership and does not retain control over the transferred asset. Any interest in transferred financial assets that is created or retained by the Association is recognised as a separate asset or liability. Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount presented in the statement of financial position when, and only when, the Association has a legal right to offset the amounts and intends either to settle on a net basis or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. The Association classifies non-derivative financial assets into financial assets at fair value through income or expenditure, and loans and receivables. Financial assets at fair value through income or expenditure A financial asset is classified at fair value through income or expenditure if it is classified as held for trading or is designated as such upon initial recognition. Financial assets are designated as fair value through income or expenditure if the Association manages such investments and makes purchase and sale decisions based on their fair value in accordance with the Association’s documented risk management or investment strategy. Attributable transaction costs are recognised in income or expenditure as incurred. Financial assets at fair value through income or expenditure are measured at fair value, and changes therein, which takes into account any dividend income, are recognised in income or expenditure. Financial assets classified as held for trading comprise funds and unit trusts actively managed by appointed third party investment managers and reviewed by the Association’s Investment Committee to address short-term liquidity needs. Loans and receivables Loans and receivables are financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Such assets are recognised initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and receivables are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment losses. Loans and receivables comprise Government Subvention, donations, other receivables and cash and cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents comprise of bank balances, fixed deposits and cash at bank in investment accounts. Non-derivative financial liabilities Financial liabilities are recognised initially on the trade date at which the Association becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. The Association derecognises a financial liability when its contractual obligations are discharged, cancelled or expire.

FS12


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2014

Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount presented in the statement of financial position when, and only when, the Association has a legal right to offset the amounts and intends either to settle on a net basis or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. The Association classifies non-derivative financial liabilities into the other financial liabilities category. Such financial liabilities are recognised initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, these financial liabilities are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Other financial liabilities comprise other payables and accrued expenses, and unutilised specific grants/donations.

3.5

Provisions A provision is recognised if, as a result of a past event, the Association has a present legal or constructive obligation that can be estimated reliably, and, it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation. Provisions are determined by discounting the expected future cash flows at a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the liability. The unwinding of the discount is recognised as finance cost.

3.6

Employee benefits Defined contribution plan A defined contribution plan is a post-employment benefit plan under which an entity pays fixed contributions into a separate entity and will have no legal or constructive obligation to pay further amounts. Obligations for contributions to defined contribution pension plans are recognised as an employee benefit expense in income or expenditure in the periods during which related services are rendered by employees. Short-term employee benefits Short-term employee benefit obligations are measured on an undiscounted basis and are expensed as the related service is provided. A liability is recognised for the amount expected to be paid under short-term cash bonus if the Association has a present legal or constructive obligation to pay this amount as a result of past service provided by the employee, and the obligation can be estimated reliably.

3.7

Income Donations from the Central Provident Fund Scheme and the Singapore Totalisator Board, which are probable for collection, are recognised on an accrual basis. All other donations are recognised on a receipt basis. Tuition programme fees income is recognised on an accrual basis. Grants for specific purposes are recognised to the extent the related expenditure has been incurred and the grant is receivable.

FS13


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2014

Government Subvention and grants, which are probable for collection, are recognised on an accrual basis.

3.8

Expenditures incurred on charitable activities Expenditures incurred on charitable activities comprise direct expenditure including direct staff costs attributable to the activities. In addition, it also includes support costs (costs relating to central functions) and other costs that have been allocated on a basis consistent with the use of the resources. Administrative and governance costs Administrative and governance costs comprise all costs attributable to the general running of the Association, in providing the governance infrastructure and in ensuring public accountability.

3.9

Finance income and finance costs Finance income comprises interest income on funds invested, dividend income, and fair value gains on financial assets at fair value through income or expenditure. Interest income is recognised as it accrues in income or expenditure, using the effective interest method. Dividend income is recognised in income or expenditure on the date that the Association’s right to receive payment is established. Finance costs comprise fair value losses on financial assets at fair value through income or expenditure, and impairment losses recognised on financial assets (other than trade receivable). Foreign currency gains and losses on financial assets and financial liabilities are reported on a net basis as either finance income or finance cost depending on whether foreign currency movements are in a net gain or net loss position.

3.10

Operating leases When the Association is a lessee of an operating lease Where the Association has the use of assets under operating leases, payments made under the leases are recognised in income or expenditure on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Lease incentives received are recognised in the income or expenditure as an integral part of the total operating expenses.

The Association’s risk management policies are established to identify and analyse the risks faced by the Association, to set appropriate risk limits and controls, and to monitor risks and adherence to limits. Risk management policies and systems are reviewed regularly to reflect changes in the Association’s activities. The Association, through its training and management standards and procedures, aims to develop a disciplined and constructive control environment in which all employees understand their roles and responsibilities. There were no significant changes to the Association’s financial risks during the year. Credit risk Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the Association if the counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligations, and arises principally from the Association’s receivables from various sources and investments. The Association’s exposure to credit risk arises principally from receivables, investments and cash and cash equivalents. The carrying amounts of financial assets in the statement of financial position represent the Association’s maximum exposure to credit risk. The Association establishes an allowance for impairment that represents its estimate of incurred losses in respect of its receivables. The main components of this allowance are a specific loss component that relates to individually significant exposures. Exposure to credit risk The Association’s exposure to credit risk is low as most of its receivables are from government agencies. As at the end of the financial year, 80% of the Association’s receivables are due from three counterparties (2013: 80%). Impairment Receivables comprise: Note

Government Subvention receivable Donations receivable – Central Provident Fund Board Scheme Donations receivable – Singapore Totalisator Board Loans and receivables

The ageing of receivables that were not impaired at the reporting date was: 2014 S$ Not past due nor impaired Past due 0 – 30 days Past due 31 – 60 days Past due 61 – 90 days Past due 91 days

5,567,725 – 1,350 6,666 693,690 6,269,431

2013 S$ 3,649,924 26,605 500 – 335,573 4,012,602

There is no allowance for receivables required as at 31 December 2014 (2013: Nil). The Association believes that the unimpaired amounts that are past due by more than 91 days are still collectible in full, based on historic payment behaviour. Financial assets – Investments in debt securities The Association limits its exposure to credit risk on investments in debt securities by investing only in liquid securities. Subject to the provisions of the Collective Investment Schemes Code, the fund managers, who appointed by the Association, restrict their dealings with counterparties that have long-term issuer credit rating of above BB+ by Standard and Poor’s, individual rating of above C by Fitch Inc, or financial strength rating of above C by Moody’s Investors Service. If any of the approved counterparties fail to meet the requirements, the fund managers will take steps to unwind the sub – fund’s position with that counterparty. In 2014, the Association disposed of its remaining investments in debt securities. Cash and cash equivalents The Association’s cash and cash equivalents are placed with banks and financial institutions which are regulated and rated B and above (2013: B and above) on Standard & Poor’s financial strength ratings. At the reporting date, the Association’s cash and cash equivalents are placed with four financial institutions (2013: four) and represent the Association’s maximum exposure to the concentration of credit risk. Liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that the Association will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or another financial asset. The Association’s approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will always have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due, under both normal and stressed conditions, without incurring unacceptable losses or risking damage to the Association’s reputation. Typically, the Association ensures that it has sufficient cash on demand to meet expected operational expenses. This excludes the potential impact of extreme circumstances that cannot reasonably be predicted.

As at reporting date, the contractual undiscounted cash flows of the Association’s financial liabilities approximate the carrying values and are due within 6 months. Market risk Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices, such as foreign exchange rates, interest rates and equity prices will affect the Association’s income or the value of its holdings of financial instruments. The objective of market risk management is to manage and control market risk exposures within acceptable parameters, while optimising the return on risk. Market risk is managed by the Investment Committee by closely monitoring the market data and by setting up detailed investment policies. Foreign currency risk The Association’s exposure to currency risk relates primarily to its investments. By virtue of its investment activities to optimise return, the Association is exposed to the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, principally in currencies such as the United States dollar (USD) and Euro (EUR). The Association’s foreign currency exposures at the reporting date are as follows: 2014 S$ Financial assets – investments USD EUR HKD Other currencies

Sensitivity analysis A 10% strengthening of the Singapore dollar against the following currencies at the reporting date would decrease the net income by the amounts shown below. This analysis assumes that all other variables, in particular interest rates, remain constant. Net deficit S$ 31 December 2014 USD EUR HKD

A 10% weakening of the Singapore dollar against those currencies at the reporting date would have had the equal but opposite effect on the above currencies to the amounts shown above, on the basis that all other variables remain constant. Interest rate risk At the reporting date, the interest rate profile of the interest-bearing financial instruments was as follows: Nominal amount 2014 2013 S$ S$ Fixed rate instruments Fixed deposits with banks Debt securities

1,448,263 – 1,448,263

1,488,783 2,802,157 4,290,940

At the reporting date, management assessed that an increase/(decrease) of 25 basis points in interest rates would have no significant impact to the results of the Association (2013: No significant impact). Price risk Price risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices (other than those arising from interest rate risk or currency risk), whether those changes are caused by factors specific to the individual financial instrument or its issuer, or factors affecting all similar financial instruments traded in the market. Sensitivity analysis The Association’s investments are designated as fair value through income or expenditure. A 10% increase or decrease in the underlying market prices at the reporting date, with all variables held constant would increase or decrease the net income by S$2,092,568 (2013: S$661,029). Funds management The Association is a society with no share capital at the reporting date. The Association builds up its funds from donations received and also through prudent management of its financial resources. The funds of the Association include unrestricted funds represented by the Accumulated funds (see note 9). The reserves of the Association provide financial stability and the means for the development of the Association’s activities. The Association intends to maintain the reserves at a level sufficient for its operating needs. The Board of Trustees and the Executive Committee of the Association review the level of reserves regularly for the Association’s continuing obligations.

The Association’s funds are closely monitored to ensure that there are sufficient funds to support its programmes and activities. The Association is not subject to externally imposed requirements. Accounting classification and fair values Fair values versus carrying amounts Fair value, which is determined for disclosure purposes, is calculated based on the present value of future principal and interest cash flows, discounted at the market rate of interest at the reporting date. The carrying amounts of loans and receivables and other financial liabilities approximate their fair values due to the relatively short period to maturity of these financial assets and liabilities. The fair value of financial assets and liabilities, together with the carrying amounts, shown in the statement of financial position are as follows:

Loans and Note receivables S$ 31 December 2014 Government Subvention 5 receivable Donations receivable – Central Provident Fund Board Scheme Donations receivable – Singapore Totalisator Board Deposits, prepayments, tuition fee receivables and others 6
