Singapore Indian Development Association Independent auditors’ report Year ended 31 December 2013

Independent auditors’ report Members of Singapore Indian Development Association (Registered under the Singapore Charities Act, Chapter 37 and the Singapore Societies Act, Chapter 311) Report on the financial statements We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Singapore Indian Development Association (the “Association”), which comprise the balance sheet as at 31 December 2013, statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in funds and statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information, as set out on pages FS1 to FS30.

Executive Committee’s responsibility for the financial statements The Executive Committee is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with the provisions of the Singapore Charities Act, Chapter 37 (the “Charities Act”), the Singapore Societies Act, Chapter 311 (the “Societies Act”) (together the “Act”) and Singapore Financial Reporting Standards, and for such internal control as the Executive Committee determines 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. We conducted our audit in accordance with Singapore Standards on Auditing. 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 judgement, 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 entity’s preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements 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 management, 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.

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 as disclosed in accounting policies below.

FS 8


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

2.3 Functional and presentation currency The financial statements are presented in Singapore dollars which is the Association’s functional currency. All financial information is presented in Singapore dollars, unless otherwise stated.

2.4 Use of estimates and judgements The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with the FRSs requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affects the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates. There are no significant assumptions or estimation uncertainties that have a significant risk of resulting in a material adjustment to the financial statements within next financial year. In the application of the Association’s accounting policies, which are described in note 3, Management is of the opinion that there is no 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 On 1 January 2013, the Association adopted the new or amended FRS and Interpretations to FRS that are mandatory for application from that date.  The adoption of these new or amended FRS and Interpretations to FRS did not result in substantial changes to the Association’s accounting policies and had no material effect to the amounts reported for the current or prior financial years.

3

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 into Singapore dollars at foreign exchange rates ruling at the dates of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the balance sheet date are retranslated into Singapore dollars at foreign exchange rate ruling at that date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies that are measured at fair value are retranslated to Singapore dollars at the exchange rate at the date on which the fair value is determined. Foreign currency differences arising from retranslation are recognised in income and expenditure.

FS 9


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

3.2 Property, plant and equipment Recognition and measurement Items of property, 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 property, plant and equipment have different useful lives, they are accounted for as separate items (major components) of property, plant and equipment. The gains and losses on disposal of an item of property, plant and equipment are determined by comparing the proceeds from disposal with the carrying amount of property, plant and equipment, and are recognised in income and expenditure. Subsequent costs The cost of replacing part of an item of property, plant and equipment is recognised in the carrying amount of the item if it is probable that the future economic benefits embodied within the part 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 property, plant and equipment are recognised in income and 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 in income and expenditure on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of each component of an item of property, plant and equipment. 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.

FS 10


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

3.3 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 investments 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 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. 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 balance sheet 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. 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. Financial assets at fair value through income and expenditure Financial assets are classified as at fair value through income and expenditure if they are held for trading or are designated as such upon initial recognition. Financial assets are designated as fair value through income and expenditure if the Association manages such investments and makes purchase and sale decisions based on their fair value. Upon initial recognition, attributable transaction costs are recognised in income and expenditure as incurred. The Association’s investments which are classified as financial assets at fair value through income and expenditure are measured at fair value, and changes therein are recognised in income and expenditure. 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 or cancelled or expire. Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount presented in the balance sheet 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’s non-derivative financial liabilities comprised other payables.

FS 11


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

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. Derivative financial instruments The Association holds forward swap contracts to hedge its foreign currency risk exposure arising from its investments. The derivative financial instruments are not designated in a qualifying hedge accounting relationship, all changes in its fair value are recognised immediately in income and expenditure.

3.4 Impairment Non-derivative financial assets A financial asset 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 had a negative effect on the estimated future cash flows of that asset that can be estimated reliably. 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. The Association considers evidence of impairment for receivables at both a specific asset and collective level. All individually significant 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. Receivables that are not individually significant are collectively assessed for impairment by grouping together 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 and expenditure and reflected in an allowance account against receivables. Interest on the impaired asset continues to be recognised through the unwinding of the discount. When a subsequent event causes the amount of impairment loss to decrease, the decrease in impairment loss is reversed through income and 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. The impairment loss is charged to income and expenditure.

FS 12


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

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.

3.5 Provisions Provisions are recognised if, as a result of past events 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.

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 plans are recognised as an expense in income and expenditure as incurred. Short-term accumulating compensated absences Short-term accumulating compensated absences are recognised when employees render services that increase their entitlement to future compensated absences. Short-term benefits Short-term employee benefit obligations are measured on an undiscounted basis and areexpensed as the related service is provided. A provision 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 recognition Donations from Central Provident Fund scheme and Singapore Totalisator Board, which are probable of collection, are recognised on the accrual basis. All other donations are recognised on the receipt basis. Tuition programme fees income is recognised on the accrual basis. Grants for specific purposes are recognised to the extent the related expenditure has been incurred and the grant is receivable. Government Subvention and grants, which are probable of collection, are recognised on the accrual basis.

In addition, it also includes support costs (costs relating to central functions) and other costs that have been allocated on the basis consistent with the use of the resources. Governance costs 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 expenses Finance income comprises interest income on funds invested, dividend income, gains on the disposal of investments, net foreign currency gains and changes in the fair value of investments at fair value through income and expenditure. Dividend income from equity investments is recognised when the dividends are received. Interest income is recognised on the accrual basis using the effective interest method. Finance expenses comprise interest expense on borrowings, unwinding of the discount on provisions, net foreign currency losses, changes in the fair value of financial assets at fair value through income and expenditure and impairment losses recognised on financial assets that are recognised in income and expenditure.

3.10 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 and expenditure on the straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Lease incentives received are recognised in the income and expenditure as an integral part of the total operating expenses.

3.11 Funds of the Association The Association maintains unrestricted and restricted funds. Restricted funds Funds set up for specific purposes are classified as restricted funds and may only be utilised in accordance with the purposes established by the source of such funds. With effect from 1 January 2012, the restrictions on use were removed and the balances were transferred to accumulated fund.

Further quantitative disclosures are included throughout these financial statements.

FS 24


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

Risk management framework The Board of Trustees and Executive Committee have an overall responsibility for the establishment and oversight of the Association’s risk management framework. The Association’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: credit risk, liquidity risk and market risk (including currency risk, interest rate risk and price risk). The Association has policies and processes for measuring and managing these risks. The Board of Trustees and Executive Committee review and approve the policies for managing each of these risks. 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 in receivables arises principally from receivables, investments and cash and cash equivalents. The maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by the carrying amount of each financial asset in the statement of financial position. The Association establishes an allowance for impairment that represents its estimate of incurred losses, only when required. The main components of this allowance are a specific loss component that relates specifically to individually significant exposures.

Receivables The Association’s exposure to the credit risk is low as most of its receivables are from government agencies. As at the end of the financial year, approximately 80% of the Association’s receivables are due from three counterparties (2012: 84%). The ageing of receivables at the statement of financial position date was: 2013

$ 3,092,034

Past due 365 days

3,988,628

3,162,034

There is no allowance for receivables required as at 31 December 2013 (2012: Nil). The Association believes that the unimpaired amounts that are past due by more than 365 days are still collectible, based on historic payment behaviour.

FS 25


Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

Financial assets - Investments The Association strives to invest a portion of its funds in bonds of good credit quality, whenever possible. For investment operations, the Investment Committee adopts very stringent quantitative and qualitative criteria, including financial statement analysis, type of securities, credit ratings and quality of management in selecting issuers of financial instruments that the Association invests in. Investments in debt securities are assessed using stringent investment criterion and this includes, but is not limited to, a thorough analysis of each debt security’s terms and conditions, the availability and quality of the guarantor, as well as financial strength of the issuer. There is no significant concentration of credit risk in relation to these investments.

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 on Standard & Poor’s financial strength ratings. As at the statement of financial position date, the Association’s cash and cash equivalents are placed with four financial institutions (2012: four).

Derivatives The derivatives during the year were entered into with banks and financial institutions counterparties, which are regulated and rated A and above on Standard & Poor’s financial strength ratings. There were no such derivatives as at year-end. Liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that the Association will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they fall due. 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. Typically, the Association ensures that it has sufficient cash on demand to meet expected operational demands excluding the potential impact of extreme circumstances that cannot reasonably be predicted. Based on the contractual maturities, the Association’s financial liabilities mature within one year from the balance sheet date, and the fair values approximate their carrying amounts. 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 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.

Singapore Indian Development Association Financial statements Year ended 31 December 2013

Foreign currency risk The Association’s exposure to foreign 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 United States Dollar, Euro and Hong Kong Dollar. The Association enters into forward foreign exchange contracts to manage its exposure to foreign currency risk attributable to its investment activities. Under the forward foreign exchange contracts, the Association agrees to exchange specific foreign currency amounts at an agreed future date at a specified exchange rate. Such contracts enable the Association to mitigate the risk of adverse movements in foreign exchange rates. The Association therefore considers avoidable currency risk exposure to be minimal. As at 31 December 2013, no forward exchange contracts were outstanding (2012: Nil). The Association’s foreign currency exposures are as follows: 2013

Sensitivity analysis A 10% strengthening of the Singapore dollar against the following currencies at the reporting date would increase the net deficit by the amounts shown below. This analysis assumes that all other variables, in particular interest rates, remain constant.

Interest rate risk The Association’s exposure to market risk for changes in interest rates relates to the interest bearing cash and cash equivalents and debt securities.

Variable rate instruments Debt securities

At the reporting date, management assessed that an increase/(decrease) of 25 basis points in the interest rates would have no significant impact to the results of the Association (2012: 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 and expenditure. A 10% increase or decrease in the underlying market prices at the reporting date, with all variables held constant would decrease or increase the net deficit by $661,029 (2012: $2,347,488). Capital/Funds management The Association is a society with no share capital. The Association builds up its Capital/Funds from donations received and also through prudent management of its financial resources. The capital of the Association include reserve fund in its Accumulated Fund. 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.
