CONSTRUCTION DIVISION Department of Construction and Infrastructure Financial Report 2010-2011 107 o) Revaluations and Impairment Revaluation of Assets Subsequent to initial recognition, assets belonging to the following classes of non-current assets are revalued with sufficient regularity to ensure that the carrying amount of these assets does not differ materially from their fair value at reporting date: Land; Buildings; Infrastructure Assets; Fair value is the amount for which an asset could be exchanged, or liability settled, between knowledgeable, willing parties in an arms length transaction. Plant and equipment are stated at historical cost less depreciation, which is deemed to equate to fair value. Impairment of Assets An asset is said to be impaired when the assets carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount. Non-current physical and intangible Agency assets are assessed for indicators of impairment on an annual basis. If an indicator of impairment exists, the Agency determines the assets recoverable amount. The assets recoverable amount is determined as the higher of the assets depreciated replacement cost and fair value less costs to sell. Any amount by which the assets carrying amount exceeds the recoverable amount is recorded as an impairment loss. Impairment losses are recognised in the Comprehensive Operating Statement. They are disclosed as an expense unless the asset is carried at a revalued amount. Where the asset is measured at a revalued amount, the impairment loss is offset against the Asset Revaluation Surplus for that class of asset to the extent that an available balance exists in the Asset Revaluation Surplus. In certain situations, an impairment loss may subsequently be reversed. Where an impairment loss is subsequently reversed, the carrying amount of the asset is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount. A reversal of an impairment loss is recognised in the Comprehensive Operating Statement as income, unless the asset is carried at a revalued amount, in which case the impairment reversal results in an increase in the Asset Revaluation Surplus. p) Leased Assets Leases under which the Agency assumes substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of an asset are classified as finance leases. Other leases are classified as operating leases. Finance Leases Finance leases are capitalised. A leased asset and a lease liability equal to the present value of the minimum lease payments are recognised at the inception of the lease. Lease payments are allocated between the principal component of the lease liability and the interest expense. Operating Leases Operating lease payments made at regular intervals throughout the term are expensed when the payments are due, except where an alternative basis is more representative of the pattern of benefits to be derived from the leased property. Lease incentives under an operating lease of a building or office space is recognised as an integral part of the consideration for the use of the leased asset. Lease incentives are to be recognised as a deduction of the lease expenses over the term of the lease. q) Payables Liabilities for accounts payable and other amounts payable are carried at cost which is the fair value of the consideration to be paid in the future for goods and services received, whether or not billed to the Construction Division. Accounts payable are normally settled within 30 days. r) Employee Benefits Provision is made for employee benefits accumulated as a result of employees rendering services up to the reporting date. These benefits include wages and salaries and recreation leave. Liabilities arising in respect of wages and salaries and recreation leave and other employee benefit liabilities that fall due within twelve months of reporting date are classified as current liabilities and are measured at amounts expected to be paid. Non-current employee benefit liabilities that fall due after twelve months of the reporting date are measured at present value, calculated using the Government long term bond rate. No provision is made for sick leave, which is non-vesting, as the anticipated pattern of future sick leave to be taken is less than the entitlement accruing in each reporting period. Employee benefit expenses are recognised on a net basis in respect of the following categories: wages and salaries, non-monetary benefits, recreation leave, sick leave and other leave entitlements; and other types of employee benefits. As part of the financial management framework, the Central Holding Authority assumes the long service leave liabilities of Government Agencies, including Construction Division and as such no long service leave liability is recognised in Agency financial statements. s) Superannuation Employees superannuation entitlements are provided through the: NT Government and Public Authorities Superannuation Scheme (NTGPASS); Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme (CSS); or non-government employee nominated schemes for those employees commencing on or after 10 August 1999.
