Financial Statements for the Year Ended 30 June 2007

Statement of Accounting Policies for the Year Ended 30 June 2007

Reporting Entity

Te Puni Kōkiri is a Government Department as defined by section 2 of the Public Finance Act 1989.

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with section 45 of the Public Finance Act 1989.

In addition, Te Puni Kōkiri has reported the Crown activities that it administers.

Statement of Departmental Accounting Policies

Measurement System

Measurement and recognition rules applied in the preparation of the Departmental statements and schedules are consistent with generally accepted accounting practice and Crown accounting polices. The financial statements have been prepared on an historical cost basis.

Accounting Policies

The following particular accounting policies that materially affect the measurement of financial results and financial position have been applied.

Budget Figures

The budget figures are those presented in the Budget Night Estimates as amended by the Supplementary Estimates and any transfer made by Order in Council under section 26A of the Public Finance Act 1989.

Revenue

Te Puni Kōkiri derives revenue through the provision of outputs to the Crown and for services to third parties. Such revenue is recognised when earned and is reported in the financial period to which it relates.

Cost Allocation

Te Puni Kōkiri has determined the cost of outputs using the cost allocation system outlined below.

Criteria for Direct Costs

‘Direct costs’ are those costs that are directly attributed to an output.

Criteria for Indirect Costs

‘Indirect costs’ are those costs that cannot be attributed in an economically feasible manner, to a specific output.

These include depreciation and capital charge which are charged to outputs on the basis of asset utilisation. The depreciation and capital charge of IT assets are allocated to outputs on the basis of budgeted staff hours attributable to each output.

Personnel costs (excluding those of Support Services Wāhanga and the Office of the Chief Executive) are allocated to outputs based on budgeted staff hours attributable to each output. Property and other premises costs, such as maintenance, are charged to wahanga (business units) on the basis of budgeted full time equivalents (FTEs).

Corporate overheads are allocated to outputs on the basis of budgeted staff hours attributable to each output.

Debtors and Receivables

Debtors and receivables are recorded at estimated realisable value, after providing for doubtful and uncollectible debts.

Operating Leases

Leases where the lessor effectively retains substantially all the risks and benefits of ownership of the leased items are classified as operating leases. Payments under these leases are charged as expenses in the period in which they are incurred.

Fixed Assets

The initial cost of a fixed asset is the value of the consideration given to acquire or create the asset and any directly attributable costs of bringing the asset to working condition for its intended use. Fixed assets costing more than $5,000 are capitalised and recorded at historical cost.

Fixed assets costing less than $5,000 that are part of the approved Annual Replacement Programme of Te Puni Kōkiri are also capitalised.

The profit or loss on disposal of a fixed asset is the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the net carrying amount. This is credited or expensed to the Statement of Financial Performance.

Depreciation

Depreciation is provided on a straight line basis on all fixed assets, so as to allocate the cost of assets, less any estimated residual value, over their useful lives. The estimated economic useful lives and associated depreciation rates of classes of assets are:

Computer Equipment 4 years 25%
Motor Vehicles 5 years 20%
Office Equipment 5 years 20%
Furniture and Fittings 5 years 20%
Leasehold Improvements 5 - 12 years
Software Development 3 1/3 years 30%

The cost of leasehold improvements is capitalised and amortised over the unexpired period of the building lease or the estimated remaining useful life of the improvement, whichever is shorter.

Employee Entitlements

Te Puni Kōkiri makes provision in respect of any liability for annual leave, long service leave and retiring leave. Annual leave is recognised as it accrues to employees at the greater of current rates of pay or average daily earnings over the previous 52 weeks. Long service and retiring leave is calculated on an actuarial basis based on the present value of expected future entitlements.

Statement of Cash Flows

Cash means cash balances on hand and held in bank accounts.

Operating activities includes cash received from all income sources of Te Puni Kōkiri and cash payments made for the supply of goods and services.

Investing activities are those activities relating to the acquisition and disposal of non-current assets.

Financing activities comprise capital injections by, or repayment of capital to, the Crown.

Financial Instruments

Te Puni Kōkiri is party to financial instruments as part of its normal operations. These financial instruments include bank accounts, short-term deposits, debtors and creditors. All financial instruments are recognised in the Statement of Financial Position and all revenue and expenses in relation to financial instruments are recognised in the Statement of Financial Performance.

All foreign exchange transactions are translated at the rates of exchange applicable in each transaction. Te Puni Kōkiri does not carry any balances in foreign currencies.

Goods and Services Tax (GST)

The Statement of Financial Position is exclusive of GST, except for Creditors and Payables, and Debtors and Receivables, which are GST inclusive. All other statements are GST exclusive.

The amount of GST owing to or from the Inland Revenue Department at balance date, being the difference between Output GST and Input GST, is included in Creditors and Payables or Debtors and Receivables (as appropriate).

Taxation

Government departments are exempt from the payment of income tax in terms of the Income Tax Act 2004. Accordingly, no charge for income tax has been provided for.

Commitments

Future expenses and liabilities to be incurred on contracts that have been entered into at balance date are disclosed as commitments to the extent that there are equally unperformed obligations.

Contingent Assets and Liabilities

Contingent assets and liabilities are disclosed at the point at which the contingency is evident.

Net Operating Surplus

The net operating surplus for the period is repayable to the Crown and a provision for this repayment is shown in the Statement of Financial Position.

Taxpayers’ Funds

This is the Crown’s net investment in Te Puni Kōkiri.

Changes in Accounting Policies

There have been no changes to the accounting policies. All policies have been applied on a basis consistent with previous years.

Statement of Financial Performance for the Year Ended 30 June 2007

Departmental Output Expenses:

Forecasts of salary increases by the Māori Trustee were discovered to be incorrect in the last month of the financial year. This resulted in unappropriated expenditure of $0.093m.

Forecasts prepared in May, when final remuneration decisions were taken, indicated that no additional appropriation was required in 2006/07 and therefore no changes were requested in the Supplementary Estimates.

Personnel Costs28,15630,3222,166
Operating Expenses24,49522,831(1,664)

Personnel Costs – the variance mainly relates to delays experienced in appointing staff to new positions.

Operating Costs – additional operating costs were incurred mainly as a result of increased activity in Treaty of Waitangi claims and Māori Tourism, resulting in additional appropriation in the Supplementary Estimates, as well as use of consultants to undertake a number of projects that were not budgeted.

Cash – the increase in cash is largely due to more than anticipated levels of Creditors and Payables and the Net Operating surplus.

Creditors and Payables – the variance is mainly due to larger year end accruals than originally forecast.

Note 10: Financial Instruments

Te Puni Kōkiri is party to financial instrument arrangements as part of its everyday operations. These include instruments such as bank balances, accounts receivable and accounts payable.

Credit Risk

Credit risk is the risk that a third party will default on its obligations to Te Puni Kōkiri, causing Te Puni Kōkiri to incur a loss. In the normal course of its business, Te Puni Kōkiri incurs credit risk from trade debtors, and transactions with financial institutions and the New Zealand Debt Management Office (NZDMO).

Te Puni Kōkiri does not require any collateral or security to support financial instruments with financial institutions that Te Puni Kōkiri deals with, or with the NZDMO, as these entities have high credit ratings. For its other financial instruments, Te Puni Kōkiri does not have significant concentrations of credit risk.

Fair Value

The fair value of financial instruments is equivalent to the carrying amount disclosed in the Statement of Financial Position.

Interest Rate Risk

Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate due to changes in market interest rates. This could impact on the return on investments or the cost of borrowing. Te Puni Kōkiri has no significant exposure to interest rate risk on its financial instruments.

Under section 46 of the Public Finance Act Te Puni Kōkiri cannot raise a loan without Ministerial approval and no such loans have been raised. Accordingly, there is no interest rate exposure for funds borrowed.

Note 11: Related Party Information

Te Puni Kōkiri is a wholly owned entity of the Crown. The Government significantly influences the roles of Te Puni Kōkiri as well as being its major source of revenue.

Te Puni Kōkiri enters into numerous transactions with other government departments, Crown agencies and state-owned enterprises on an arm’s length basis. These transactions are not considered to be related party transactions.

Apart from those transactions described above, Te Puni Kōkiri has not entered into any related party transactions, except for where:

Te Puni Kōkiri staff who work in local communities may in a private capacity hold executive or advisory positions in local organisations. Some of these organisations may receive funding via Te Puni Kōkiri. These organisations are therefore considered related parties of Te Puni Kōkiri.

Te Puni Kōkiri staff are required to declare any real or potential conflicts of interest. Steps are then taken to ensure that staff members with a conflict of interest are not involved in any Te Puni Kōkiri decisions involving a group/organisation they may be involved with in a private capacity.

Note 12: Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards

In December 2002 the New Zealand Accounting Standards Review Board announced that New Zealand International Financial Reporting Standards (NZ IFRS) would apply to all New Zealand reporting entities for the periods commencing on or after 1 January 2007. Entities had the option to adopt NZ IFRS for the periods beginning on or after 1 January 2005.

Te Puni Kōkiri intends to implement NZ IFRS in its annual financial statements for the year ending 30 June 2008. In complying with NZ IFRS for the first time, Te Puni Kōkiri will restate amounts previously reported under current New Zealand accounting standards (NZ GAAP) using NZ IFRS. This requires a restatement of opening balances as at 1 July 2006, with initial transitional adjustments recognised retrospectively and mainly against retained earnings (operating surplus) at that date. The amounts/transactions incurred during the year ending 30 June 2007 will also be restated and will impact the income statement (statement of financial performance) and the balance sheet (statement of financial position) for that period. However, transitional adjustments relating to those standards where comparatives are not required will only be made at 30 June 2007.

Transition Management

A conversion project involving finance staff was established to evaluate the differences, if any, between current policies and the policies of the financial statements of the Government. The project team assessed the impact of changes in financial reporting standards on Te Puni Kōkiri financial reporting and other related activities as well as designed and implemented processes to deliver financial reporting under NZ IFRS.

This project is largely complete and Te Puni Kōkiri expects to be in a position to comply with the requirements of NZ IFRS for the year ending 30 June 2008.

Impact on Transition to NZ IFRS

The purpose of this disclosure is to highlight the expected impact on Te Puni Kōkiri as a result of transition from current policies to NZ IFRS based on the standards that exist at the date of issue of these financial statements. As we progress towards 30 June 2008, Te Puni Kōkiri intends to continue to provide users of the financial statements with updated information about the likely impacts of NZ IFRS on its income statement and balance sheet. This note, therefore, only provides a summary of the significant potential impacts resulting from transition to NZ IFRS and should not be taken as an exhaustive list of all the differences between existing NZ GAAP and NZ IFRS. NZ IFRS 1 also allows a number of exemptions to assist in the transition to reporting under NZ IFRS. The explanatory comments below include details of the NZ IFRS 1 treatments adopted.

Changes in accounting policies on transition to NZ IFRS

The significant differences identified by Te Puni Kōkiri on transition to NZ IFRS are outlined below. It should not be regarded as a complete list of changes in accounting policies that will result from the transition to NZ IFRS, as some decisions have not been finalised where choices of accounting policies are available. It is possible that the actual impact of adopting NZ IFRS may vary from the information presented below, and the variation may be material.

Te Puni Kōkiri intends to provide further information, including quantifying the impacts of transitioning to NZ IFRS in our next Annual financial statements for the year ending 30 June 2008.

The estimated impact of transition to NZ IFRS from existing NZ GAAP is set out below. It is possible that the actual impact of adopting NZ IFRS may vary from the information presented below, and the variation may be material.

Employee Benefits

Te Puni Kōkiri recognises a liability for sick leave to the extent that absences in the coming year are expected to be greater than the sick leave entitlements in the coming year. The amount is calculated based on the unused sick leave entitlement that can be carried forward at balance date, to the extent that Te Puni Kōkiri anticipates it will be used by staff to cover those future absences.

Long service and retiring leave is calculated as the present value of the estimated future cash outflows.

Financial Assets

Rural Lending loans are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. These are recognised initially at fair value plus transaction costs and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest rate method. Loans issued with duration less than 12 months are recognised at their nominal value. Allowances for estimated irrecoverable amounts are recognised when there is objective evidence that the asset is impaired. Interest and impairment losses are recognised in the Statement of Financial Performance.

A provision for impairment of receivables is established when there is objective evidence that Te Puni Kōkiri will not be able to collect all amounts due according to the original terms of receivables. The amount of the provision is the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted using the effective interest method.

Estimated Impact on Transition to NZ IFRS as at 30 June 2007

Te Puni Kōkiri has estimated the impact on Departmental and Non Departmental Equity, Total Liabilities, Total Assets and Income of transition to NZ IFRS as at 30 June 2007.

Statement of Non-Departmental Accounting Policies

Measurement System

Measurement and recognition rules applied in the preparation of the Non-Departmental statements and schedules are consistent with generally accepted accounting practice and the Financial Statements of the Government’s accounting polices. The financial statements have been prepared on an historical cost basis.

Accounting Policies

The following particular accounting policies that materially affect the measurement of financial results and financial position have been applied.

Budget Figures

The budget figures are those presented in the Budget Night Estimates as amended by the Supplementary Estimates and any transfer made by Order in Council under section 26A of the Public Finance Act 1989.

Comparatives

To ensure consistency with the current year, certain comparative information has been restated or reclassified where appropriate. This has occurred:

  • where classifications have changed between periods, and (if appropriate).
  • where Te Puni Kōkiri has made additional disclosure in the current year and where a greater degree of disaggregation of prior year amounts and balances is therefore required.

Revenue

Te Puni Kōkiri derives revenue through the provision of outputs to the Crown and for services to third parties. Such revenue is recognised when earned and is reported in the financial period to which it relates.

Goods and Services Tax (GST)

The Statements of Non-Departmental Expenditure and Appropriations are exclusive of GST. The Statement of Financial Position is exclusive of GST, except for Creditors and Payables, and Debtors and Receivables, which are GST inclusive.

The amount of GST owing to or from the Inland Revenue Department at balance date, being the difference between Output GST and Input GST, is included in Creditors and Payables or Debtors and Receivables (as appropriate).

Debtors and Receivables

Debtors and receivables are recorded at estimated realisable value, after providing for doubtful and uncollectible debts.

Commitments

Future expenses and liabilities to be incurred on contracts that have been entered into at balance date are disclosed as commitments to the extent that there are equally unperformed obligations.

Contingent Liabilities

Contingent liabilities are disclosed at the point at which the contingency is evident.

Changes in Accounting Policies

There have been no changes to the accounting policies. Accounting policies have been applied on a basis consistent with previous years.

Schedule of Non-Departmental Revenue for the Year Ended 30 June 2007

Statement of Unappropriated Expenditure and Capital Expenditure as at 30 June 2007

In terms of the Public Finance Act 1989, approval has been sought under section 26(c) from the Minister of Finance for unappropriated expenditure totalling $0.093million (there was no unappropriated expenditure for the year ended 30 June 2006).

0ther Expenses to be Incurred by the Crown:

Forecasts of salary increases by the Māori Trustee were discovered to be incorrect in the last month of the financial year. This resulted in unappropriated expenditure of $0.093m in the Departmental Output Expenses - Services to the Māori Trustee.

As this appropriation is the full provisioning of the costs incurred by the Māori Trustee in relation to the funding it receives under the Departmental Output Expense - Services to the Māori Trustee, the unappropriated amount also impacts this appropriation.

The accompanying accounting policies and notes form part of these Financial Statements.

Schedule of Non-Departmental Assets as at 30 June 2007

Non-Departmental assets are administered by Te Puni Kōkiri on behalf of the Crown. As these assets are neither controlled by Te Puni Kōkiri nor used in the production of Te Puni Kōkiri outputs, they are not reported in the department’s Statement of Financial Position.

Non-Departmental Assets administered by Te Puni Kōkiri on behalf of the Crown include:

Notes to the Non-Departmental Financial Statements and Schedules for the Year Ended 30 June 2007

Note 1: Māori Trustee

The Crown incurs expenditure via the Te Puni Kōkiri departmental appropriation under the output class “Services to the Māori Trustee”. There is an expectation that this expenditure will be repaid by the Māori Trustee to the Crown at some future date. A 100% provision against the Māori Trustee’s debt is shown to reflect that the debt has not yet been “called”.

Note 2: Māori Television Broadcasting

Promotion of Māori language and Māori culture through television broadcasting by Te Māngai Pāho.

Note 3: Māori Radio Broadcasting

Promotion of Māori language and Māori culture through radio broadcasting by Te Māngai Pāho.

Note 7: Māori Potential Funds

In 2006/07, three new Non-Departmental Output Expenses were established to enable Te Puni Kōkiri allocate non-departmental funding appropriations against the Māori Potential Framework. The three new Non-Departmental Output Expenses; Whakamana (leadership), Mātauranga (knowledge/skills) and Rawa (resources) are a direct link to the three strategic investment areas which were identified through the Māori Potential Approach.

Note 8: Transition to Māori Potential Funds

Due to the establishment of the three new Non-Departmental Output Expenses under the Māori Potential Funds, funding from the following Non-departmental appropriations was merged into Whakamana (leadership), Mātauranga (knowledge/skills) and Rawa (resources).

The appropriations are; Whānau Development – Action and Research, Whānau Development – Enterprise, Whānau Development – Sport and Culture, Capacity Assessment, Building Capacity in Māori Communities, Direct Resourcing of Local Level Solutions and Local Level Solutions/Development.

Note 9: Māori Registration Service

Contribution towards the establishment of a national Māori registration service, which will assist in linking Māori with their tribes and tribal groups and compiling comprehensive and accurate registers of their members.

This reflects advances and other assistance provided under section 460A of the Māori Affairs Act 1953, which is now administered by Te Puni Kōkiri under Part II of the Māori Affairs Restructuring Act 1989.

Note 11: Rural Lending

Rural Lending represents the remaining nominal value of the former Rural Loans Portfolio of the Department of Māori Affairs and Iwi Transition Agency programmes.

The only new advances being made under these provisions are those necessary to complete compensation obligations to lessees where compensation is payable in terms of leases issued under the provisions of Part XXIV of the Māori Affairs Act 1953 and now administered by Te Puni Kōkiri under Part II of the Māori Affairs Restructuring Act 1989.

Note 12: Explanation for Significant Budget Changes

Refer to “The Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations for the year ending 30 June 2007” for an explanation of significant budget changes between the 2006/07 Main Estimates and 2006/07 Supplementary Estimates for Vote Māori Affairs (B.7 – Pages 326 to 329).

2006/07 was the first year of administering the above investment funds. As a result, expenditure was delayed due to the initial establishment of appropriate systems and processes.

An expense transfer into 2007/08 of $3.06 million was approved to fund Budget 2007 initiatives; Māori Wardens and Treaty 2U Touring Exhibition. An in-principle expense transfer into 2007/08 of up to $4 million has been approved to fund cross-agency partnered interventions.
