24 mhaca annual report 2007-2008 I tender this report for the MHACA Management Committee to consider and accept. I also move that Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu be appointed to audit the MHACA financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2009. The financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2008 were audited by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu . Balance Sheet The audited Balance Sheet reports accumulated funds of $955,653 at 30 June 2008 an increase of $62,527 on the previous year. Five programs had total surpluses of $278,905 however the Department of Health and Community Services have determined that they are required to be spent by those programs in the 2008/09 year and they have been transferred to unexpended grants and do not form part of the surplus. Many of the programs are reporting a surplus due to the difficulty in filling vacant positions throughout the year particularly in the Pathways, Sub Acute and Life Promotions Program, the surplus in Administration and Management was primarily also due to staffing levels, and the balance of the surplus funds were from the pilot Day to Day Living in the Community Program a 2-year pilot funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing. This surplus was due to the program taking longer to get underway than planned, and we have confirmation that all funds can be carried forward and expended during 2008-09. The Balance Sheet reports MHACA to have current assets of $785,919, mainly cash at bank, of $725,261, receivables of $60,658 and a prepaid bond for our new premises of $7,333. Non current assets of $642,885 which comprises of residential units $534,96, plant and equipment $55,297, motor vehicles $52,72 (all amounts are written down values) and shares in Bendigo Bank at cost of $500. Current liabilities are $470,411 which includes the unexpended grants of $278,905 and grants in advance of $80,000. Creditors and Provisions total $,506, and non-current liabilities total $0,073 being provision for long service leave. The audited Balance Sheet reports MHACA to be in a healthy financial position at 30 June 2008. Statement of financial performance Grant income increased from $945,689 last year to $,08,482 this year.
