AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY INSTITUTEFinance ReportAnnual Report 2012The Victorian Division produced a surplus of $34,509. This wasespecially significant in a year where many activities, primarily the CPDand Events Programme, were modified to accommodate the PanPacific Congress, held in Melbourne in October. Knowing that revenuewould be at a minimum it was crucial to closely monitor expenses.Total expenses decreased from $1,413,527 to $1,367,138 in 2012 andincluded the initial funding of a Strategic and Governance Review ofthe Victorian Division, currently underway.The National Council resolved to allocate the 2011 National Officedeficit to the Divisions and $257,972 was apportioned to Victoria. Thisin particular has seen a reduction in equity reflected by the Division’sBalance Sheet position which now sits at a total of $2,957,884.Revenue decreased overall and details are included below:• CPD income decreased by $26,609 from 2011 due mainly toa substantial reduction to the Programme, such as the AnnualConference not running, to accommodate the Pan PacificCongress.• Income from Non-CPD decreased by $39,397 due primarily tothe discounted sponsorship income received for the Excellence inProperty Awards because it was held as a cocktail function, againto accommodate the Pan Pacific Congress.• Membership subscription income reached $950,502 in 2012,effectively maintaining it at 2011 levels. Subscription feesremained unchanged.• $59,675 in fees generated from Presidential Appointmentswas achieved compared to $65,725 in 2011. Although 124appointments were made, more than 50% of appointmentswere lodged via the Small Business Commissioner, where noadministration fee is charged.• Publications & Products income reached $57,017, a $34,400reduction on 2011 because only two rather than three professionalcertificates were held in 2012.• 2012 interest income was $16,151 due to a fund reduction of$360,000 in conjunction with decreasing interest rates over thecourse of the year.• The prestige of the Victorian Division’s Professional CertificateProgrammes, including in 2012 the Specialist Retail ValuerProfessional Certificate and Professional Certificate in Giving ExpertEvidence, was reflected by the $35,186.39 revenue attained.Expenditure in 2012 decreased by $46,389. Fees for membershipand CPD remained the same as in previous years and investment wasmade in marketing and public relations expenses and the funding of aStrategic and Governance Review for the Victorian Division.• CPD costs decreased by $76,501 in line with the reducedprogramme.• Non-CPD expenditure decreased to $84,911 as a result of thereturn to the cocktail format for the Excellence in Property Awards.• Professional Products expenditure reduced to just $16,840, againbecause of the Specialist Water Valuer Professional Certificatebeing held over to 2013.• Employment expenses increase by $57,250 to $421,542 withtemporary staff and recruitment expenses being incurred.• Property expenses reduced slightly to $26,720 which primarilycovers the building upgrade programme, now in its fourth year.• Marketing & PR expenses rose by $22,916 from the previousyear due to the continuous effort of the Division to take on thenumerous opportunities for consultation, government liaison,media exposure as well as the continued partnership with theProperty Industry Foundation. In addition, APIVIC continuedthe partnership with Property Review formed in 2011 and everyMember is now subscribed to this online news provider.• The Victorian Divisional Council determined to invest into aGovernance and Strategy Review which commenced late in 2012,the benefits of which are already being realised.The Australian Property Institute (Inc.) (Victorian Division) commencedoperating out of combined cheque account and cash managementbank account with the other state divisions during 2010.Not all of the amounts which are shown above as Cash at Bank in2012 are available to be drawn on by this Division, as the allocationof National Project expenditure has not yet been determined andthere is a receivable from Australian Property Institute Values Limitedamounting to $260,000 which is expected to be repaid in full, in futureperiods. Furthermore, the allocation of the 2012 National Office deficithas yet to be determined and agreed upon.I would like to congratulate the Divisional Council, Executive, staff andBoards for their joint effort in achieving a very positive financial result forthe Victorian Division in 2012.David Corrigan FAPITreasurerAPI 6

AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY INSTITUTEAnnual Report 2012AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY INSTITUTE (INC.)(VICTORIAN DIVISION)ABN 49 007 505 866NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTSFOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 20121: STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIESThe councillors have prepared the financial statements on the basis that the company is a non-reportingentity because there are no users dependent on general purpose financial statements. The financialstatements are therefore special purpose financial statements that have been prepared in order to meet theneeds of members.The Australian Property Institute (Inc.) has been assessed as a not-for-profit entity as its principal objectiveis not the generation of profit.The following is a summary of the material accounting policies adopted by the Institute in the preparation ofthe financial report. The accounting policies have been consistently applied, unless otherwise stated.The financial statements have been prepared on an accruals basis and are based on historical costs unlessotherwise stated in the notes. The accounting policies that have been adopted in the preparation of thestatements are as follows:(a)Property, plant and equipmentEach class of property, plant and equipment are carried at cost or fair value less, where applicable,any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses.Freehold land and buildings are brought to account at cost or at independent valuation. The Institutehas a policy of revaluing all land and buildings on a regular basis.The valuation has taken into account the requirements of AASB 116 which defines ‘fair value’ and theconcepts of ‘market value’.The date of valuation is 31 December 2012. The property was inspected on 15 January 2013.Increases in the carrying amount arising on revaluation of land and buildings are credited to arevaluation reserve in shareholder’ equity. Decreases that offset previous increases of the sameasset are charged against the fair value reserves in equity; all other decreases are charged to theincome statement.Plant and equipment are measured on the cost basis less any accumulated depreciation andimpairment losses.The carrying amount of property, plant and equipment is reviewed annually by the Institute wheneverthere is evidence of an impairment indicator.The recoverable amount is calculated as the higher of net fair value and value in use. For thoseassets which have been held for cash-generating purposes and which would be replaced if theInstitute was deprived of them, the value in use is depreciated replacement cost. Value in use for allother assets is based on a discounted cash flow.DepreciationThe depreciable amount of all fixed assets are depreciated on a straight line basis over the usefullives of the assets to the Institute commencing from the time the asset is held and ready for use.The depreciable rates used for each class of depreciable assets are:Class of assetFurniture and equipmentUseful life1 – 10 years8API 18


Annual Report 2012AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY INSTITUTE (INC.)(VICTORIAN DIVISION)ABN 49 007 505 866NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTSFOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 20121. STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)(b) Impairment of assetsAt the end of each reporting period property, plant and equipment, intangible assets and investmentsare reviewed to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered animpairment loss. If there is an indication of possible impairment, the recoverable amount of anyaffected asset (or group of related assets) is estimated and compared with its carrying amount. Therecoverable amount is the higher of the asset’s fair value less costs to sell and the present value ofthe asset’s future cash flows discounted at the expected rate of return. If the estimated recoverableamount and an impairment loss is recognised immediately in profit or loss(c)(d)(e)(f)Employee benefitsProvision is made for the Institute’s liability for employee benefits arising from services rendered byemployees to the end of the reporting period. Employee benefits have been measured at the amountsexpected to be paid when the liability is settled, plus any related on-costs.ProvisionsProvisions are recognised when the Institute has a legal or constructive obligation, as a result of pastevents, for which it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will result and that outflow can bereliably measured. Provisions are measured at the best estimate of the amounts required to be settlethe obligations at the end of the reporting period.Trade payablesTrade payables represent the liabilities for goods and services received by the company that remainunpaid at the end of the reporting period. Trade payables are recognised at their transaction price.They are subject to normal credit terms (30-120 days) and are not subject to interest.Income taxThe income tax expense for the year comprises current income tax expense. The company does notrecognise deferred tax assets or liabilities. Current income tax expense charged to profit or loss is thetax payable on taxable income and is measured at the amounts expected to be paid to the relevanttaxation authority.From 1 January 1993 the Australian Property Institute (Inc.) became liable to pay income tax. TheVictorian Division of API is not a legal tax entity in its own right and therefore the division is notdirectly liable to pay income tax. The liability to pay income tax rests with the API and at the time ofthis report the Victorian Division had not been advised of any tax contribution required to be remitted.Accordingly income tax has not been provided for in these accounts.(g)(h)LeasesLeases of fixed assets where substantially all risks and benefits incidental to the ownership of theasset, but not the legal ownership, are transferred to the Institute are classified as finance leases.Finance leases are capitalised, recording an asset and a liability equal to the present value of theminimum lease payments, including any guaranteed residential values. Leased assets aredepreciated on a straight line basis over their estimated useful lives where it is likely that the Institutewill obtain ownership of the asset or over the term of the lease. Lease payments are allocatedbetween the reduction of the lease liability and the lease interest expense for the period.Cash and cash equivalentsCash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, deposits held at call with banks, other short-termhighly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less and bank overdrafts. Bankoverdrafts are shown within borrowings in current liabilities on the balance sheet.919API

The net amount of GST recoverable from, or payable to, the ATO isincluded with other receivables or payables in the balance sheet.Comparative figuresWhen required by Accounting Standards, comparative figures have been adjusted to conform tochanges in presentation for the current financial year.Critical accounting estimates and judgementsThe councillors evaluate estimates and judgements incorporated into the financial report based onhistorical knowledge and best available current information. Estimates assume a reasonableexpectation of future events and are based on current trends and economic data, obtained bothexternally and within the Institute.Key estimates – impairmentThe Institute assesses impairment at each reporting date by evaluating conditions specific to theInstitute that may lead to impairment of assets. Where an impairment trigger exists, the recoverableamount of the asset is determined. Value-in-use calculations performed in assessing recoverableamounts incorporate further estimates.(m)Financial instrumentsRecognition and Initial MeasurementFinancial instruments, incorporating financial assets and financial liabilities, are recognised when theentity becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.Trade date accounting is adopted for financial assets that are delivered within timeframes establishedby marketplace convention.Financial instruments are initially at fair value plus transactions costs where the instrument is notclassified at fair value through profit or loss. Transaction costs related to instruments classified as atfair value through profit or loss are expensed to profit or loss immediately.
