Barkly Regional Council Notes to and forming part of the Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June 2019 Note 1 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (cont) -10- 9 Leases Lease arrangements have been accounted for in accordance with Australian Accounting Standard AASB 117. In respect of finance leases, where Council substantially carries the entire risks incident to ownership, the leased items are initially recognised as assets and liabilities equal in amount to the present value of the minimum lease payments. The assets are disclosed within the appropriate asset class, and are amortised to expense over the period during which the Council is expected to benefit from the use of the leased assets. Lease payments are allocated between interest expense and reduction of the lease liability, according to the interest rate implicit in the lease. In respect of operating leases, where the lessor substantially retains all of the risks and benefits incident to ownership of the leased items, lease payments are charged to expense over the lease term. 10 GST Implications In accordance with UIG Abstract 1031 Accounting for the Goods & Services Tax Receivables and Creditors include GST receivable and payable. Except in relation to input taxed activities, revenues and operating expenditures exclude GST receivable and payable. Non-current assets and capital expenditures include GST net of any recoupment. Amounts included in the Statement of Cash Flows are disclosed on a gross basis. 11 Pending Accounting Standards Certain new accounting standards and UIG interpretations have been published that are not mandatory for the 30 June 2019 reporting period and have not been used in preparing these reports. AASB 7 Financial Instruments Disclosures AASB 9 Financial Instruments AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers AASB 16 Leases AASB 1058 Income of Not-for-Profit Entities Standards containing consequential amendments to other Standards and Interpretations arising from the above - AASB 2010-7, AASB 2014-1, AASB 2014-3, AASB 2014-4, AASB 2014-5, AASB 2014-6, AASB 20147, AASB 2014-8, AASB 2014-9, AASB 2014-10, AASB 2015-1, AASB 2015-2, AASB 2015-3, AASB 2015-4, AASB 2015-5, AASB 2015-6 and AASB 2015-7. (Standards not affecting local government have been excluded from the above list.) AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers and AASB 1058 Income of NotforProfit Entities, which will commence from 1 July 2019, affect the timing with which revenues, particularly special purpose grants, are recognised. Amounts received in relation to contracts with sufficiently specific performance obligations will in future only be recognised as these obligations are fulfilled. In these Statements, the sum of $5,218,311 has been recognised as revenue, in accordance with the current Standards, but would in future be recorded as a liability "Amounts in Advance" until the performance obligations have been fulfilled. AASB 16 Leases, which will commence from 1 July 2019, requires that the right of use conveyed by leasing contracts except leases with a maximum term of 12 months and leases for nonmaterial amounts be recognised as a form of Infrastructure, Property, Plant and Equipment, and that the lease liability be disclosed as a liability. 65Barkly Regional Council
