We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

3.3

Financial instruments

Recognition and measurement

Non-derivative financial assets

Items of property, plant and equipment are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Subsequent costs

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.

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

Loans and receivables comprise government subvention, donations, other receivables and cash and cash equivalents. Financial assets - Investments at fair value through income and expenditure

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 profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of each component of an item of property, plant and equipment.

Financial assets - investments 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.

The estimated useful lives for the current and comparative years are as follows: Non-derivative financial liabilities 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.

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 comprises trade and other payables.

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. 3.4

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONTINUED)

A NEW MOMENTUM

3.5

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.

Impairment Financial assets (including receivables)

3.6

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.

Employee benefits Defined contribution plan Obligations for contributions to defined contribution plans are recognised as an expense in income and expenditure as incurred.

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.

Short-term accumulating compensated absences Short-term accumulating compensated absences are recognised when employees render services that increase their entitlement to future compensated absences.

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.

Provisions

Short-term benefits Short-term employee benefit obligations are measured on an undiscounted basis and are expensed 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 are recognised on the accrual basis. All other donations are recognised on the receipt basis.

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.

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 are recognised on the accrual basis.

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. 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.

3.8

Resources expended on charitable activities The costs of these 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 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.

Overview

TAXATION

The Executive Committee has 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 Executive Committee reviews and approves the policies for managing each of these risks.

The Association is an approved charity organisation under the Charities Act, Chapter 37 and an Institution of Public Character under the Income Tax Act, Chapter 134. No provision for tax has been made in the financial statements as the Association is exempt from income tax.

This note presents information about the Association’s exposure to each of the above financial risks. Further quantitative disclosures are included throughout these financial statements.

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

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

For the purpose of financial statements, parties are considered to be related to the Association if the Association has the ability, directly or indirectly, to control the party or exercise significant influence over the party in making financial and operating decisions, or vice versa, or where the Association and the party are subject to common control or common significant influence. Related parties may be individuals or other entities.

The Association’s exposure to the credit risk is low as most of its receivables are from government agencies. Approximately 84% (2011: 80%) of the Association’s receivables are due from three (3) counterparties in 2012 and 2011.

Other than the transactions disclosed elsewhere in the financial statements, there were no significant related party transactions between the Association and its related parties during the financial year.

At the balance sheet date, all receivables of the Association are not past due. There is no allowance for receivables required as at 31 December 2012 (2011: Nil).

Investments/Cash and cash equivalents

Currency risk

The Association strives to invest a portion of its funds in bonds of good credit quality, whenever possible.

Currency risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates.

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. The Association’s cash and cash equivalents are placed with banks and financial institutions which are regulated and rated A and above on Standard & Poor’s financial strength ratings. The Association’s debt securities consist of debt securities rated B and above on Standard & Poor’s financial strength ratings or debt securities of Singapore government related entities. There is no significant concentration of credit risk in relation to these 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 does not use derivative financial instruments to hedge its foreign currency risks. The Association’s foreign currency exposures are as follows:

Financial assets – investments US Dollar Euro Hong Kong Dollar Other currencies

2012 $

2011 $

10,785,531 21,292 607,483 226,512

10,407,159 110,858 590,004 1,033,181

Sensitivity analysis The Association’s cash and cash equivalents are placed with three (3) financial institutions in 2012 and 2011. Liquidity risk

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

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.

Surplus of income over expenditure $ 31 December 2012 US Dollar Euro Hong Kong Dollar

(1,078,553) (2,129) (60,748)

31 December 2011 US Dollar Euro Hong Kong Dollar

(1,040,716) (11,086) (59,000)

A 10% weakening of the Singapore dollar against those currencies at 31 December 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 The Association’s exposure to market risk for changes in interest rates relates to the interest bearing cash and cash equivalents and debt securities.

At the reporting date, the interest rate profile of the interest-bearing financial instruments, as reported to the management, was as follows: Nominal amount 2011 2012 $ $ Fixed rate instruments Fixed deposits with banks Debt securities

Variable rate instruments Debt securities

640,599 7,765,892 8,406,491

2,510,596 10,917,087

4,393,654 11,571,740

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.

Ratio between the Association’s annual operating expenditure and its funds is as follows:

Total funds at 31 December Annual operating expenditure Ratio of funds to annual operating expenditure

Sensitivity analysis The Association’s investments are designated as held for trading investments. A 10% increase or decrease in the underlying market prices at the reporting date, with all variables held constant would increase or decrease income by $2,347,488 (2011: $2,142,592). 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 Executive Committee and the Board of Trustees 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 capital/funds requirements. Accounting classification and fair values Fair values versus carrying amounts The fair values of financial assets and liabilities, together with the carrying amounts shown in the statement of financial position, are as follows:

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.
