Government Brokered Programs Funds are received from Government Brokered Programs by KU Childrens Services for the allocation to recipients who provide a variety of early childhood education and care programs in the community. The entity acts as an agent for these programs. The funds received and allocated are not recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income in accordance with AASB118 Revenue. Cash flows are included in the Statement of Cash Flows on a gross basis. Unit trust distributions and interest revenue Unit trust distributions from investments are recognised when the unit holder’s right to receive payment has been established. Interest revenue is accrued on a time basis, by reference to the principal outstanding and at the effective interest rate applicable, which is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash receipts through the expected life of the financial assets to that asset’s net carrying amount. j) Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash on hand and demand deposits. Cash equivalents are short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value. k) Investment property Investment property, which is property held to earn rentals and/or capital appreciation, is carried at cost, including transaction costs. l) Income tax The company is exempt from income tax under s50-5 of the Income Tax Assessment Act, as it is an income tax exempt charitable entity. As a consequence, there is no income tax attributable to the operating result. m) General reserves Fundraising Reserve Net proceeds of fundraising are retained in the Fundraising Reserve. n) Donations in kind Over the course of the year the company has received donations in kind from a number of local councils in the form of the right to use premises at discounted rent. The company is of the view that it is not feasible to fair value the services received accurately and as such it has not brought to account discounted rent as a donation. o) Provisions Provisions are recognised when the Company has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of a past event, it is probable that the Company will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. The amount recognised as a provision is the best estimate of the consideration required to settle the present obligation at reporting date, taking into account the risks and uncertainties surrounding the obligation. Where a provision is measured using the cashflows estimated to settle the present obligation, its carrying amount is the present value of those cashflows. When some or all of the economic benefits required to settle a provision are expected to be recovered from a third party, the receivable is recognised as an asset if it is virtually certain that reimbursement will be received and the amount of the receivable can be measured reliably. 3.
