     NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS




     1   Objective and Funding
         The core objectives of the South Australian Film Corporation (the Corporation) are to foster the creation and delivery of
         critically acclaimed and commercially successful ideas, moving images and sound for any viewing medium; to support the
         SA screen industry in a dynamic and responsive manner and to optimise opportunities for production and post-production
         in this State.
         The Corporation provides financial assistance by way of grants, loans and equity investments.
         The Corporation’s principal sources of funds are State Government grants, investment income, revenue from studio and
         facilities hire and distribution returns.


     2   Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
         (a) Basis of Accounting
             The financial report is a general purpose financial report. The accounts have been prepared in accordance with
             applicable Australian Accounting Standards and Treasurer’s Instructions and Accounting Policy Statements
             promulgated under the provision of the Public Finance and Audit Act 1987 (PFAA).
             The PFAA and the Treasurer’s Instructions are legislative provisions governing the preparation of financial statements
             and take precedence over Australian Accounting Standards.
             Accounting Policy Statements issued pursuant to Treasurer’s Instructions may modify or clarify accounting standards
             application, disclosure, format and wording to provide certainty and to ensure consistency and appropriate reporting
             across the public sector. For example, AASB 116 requires non-current tangible assets to be measured at cost or fair
             value; an Accounting Policy Statement mandates the fair value option.
             Where modification is required and has a material effect upon the reported results, details of that modification and
             the resulting financial effect are disclosed in the notes.
             These financial statements are the first statements to be prepared in accordance with Australian equivalents to
             International Financial Reporting Standards (AIFRS).
             AASB 1 First time adoption of AIFRS has been applied in preparing these statements. Previous financial statements
             were prepared in accordance with Australian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
             Reporting differences between the two standards have resulted in no material variances and therefore no adjustments
             have been made to last year’s comparative results.
             There are Australian accounting standards which have been issued or amended but which are not yet effective.
             The Corporation has assessed the impact of the new and amended standards and there will be no impact on the
             accounts of the Corporation.
             The Corporation’s Income Statement, Balance Sheet and Statement of Changes in Equity have been prepared on an
             accrual basis and are in accordance with historical cost convention, except where stated, for certain assets that were
             valued in accordance with the valuation policy applicable.
             The Cash Flow Statement has been prepared on a cash basis.
             The financial report has been prepared based on a twelve month operating cycle and presented in Australian currency.

   The Educational Content Fund provides funding for the production of non-print communication resources to meet
   the requirements of South Australian Government’s departments and agencies. The participating departments and
   agencies contribute to the cost of productions.

   Revolving Film Fund
   The Revolving Film Fund provides secured loans to film and television producers. The loans are provided on an
   interest bearing basis.

   Administered Items: Disbursement Returns Account
   The Corporation provides a service to film producers for disbursing investment returns to investors. The Corporation
   does not have control or discretion to apply the undisbursed investment returns towards achieving the Corporation’s
   objectives, therefore, the disbursement activities are not recognised in the financial statements but have been
   disclosed in Note 24.


(c) Income and Expenses
   Income and expense are recognised in the Corporation’s Income Statement when and only when it is probable
   that the flow of economic benefits to or from the Corporation will occur and can be reliably measured.
   Income and expenses have been classified according to their nature in accordance with Accounting Policy
   Framework II General Purpose Financial Reporting Framework paragraph APS 3.5 and have not been offset unless
   required or permitted by a specific accounting standard.
   In accordance with Accounting Policy Framework II General Purpose Financial Reporting Framework paragraphs
   4.1 and 4.2 the financial report’s notes disclose income, expenses, financial assets and financial liabilities where
   the counterparty/transaction is with an entity within the SA Government as at the reporting date, classified according
   to their nature.
   Transactions with SA Government entities below the threshold of $100 000 have been included with the non-
   government transactions, classified according to their nature.

   Revenue Recognition
   Government grants and film distribution returns are recognised on receipt. Interest revenues are recognised as they
   accrue. Other revenue is recognised after the service has been provided.




                                                                                                                            27
     (d) Non Current Assets
        Assets are initially recorded at cost or at the value of any liabilities assumed, plus any incidental cost involved with
        the acquisition. Where assets are acquired at no value, or minimal value, they are recorded at their fair value in the
        Balance Sheet.

        Intangible Assets
        An intangible asset is an identifiable non-monetary asset without physical substance. Intangible assets are measured
        at cost.
        The acquisition of or internal development of software is capitalised when the expenditure meets the definition and
        recognition criteria of an intangible asset outlined in AASB 138 Intangible Assets and when the amount of expenditure
        is greater than or equal to $10 000, in accordance with Accounting Policy Framework III Asset Accounting Framework
        paragraph APS 2.15.
        All development costs that do not meet the capitalisation criteria outlined in AASB 138 are expensed.

        Depreciation
        Plant and equipment items with an initial cost greater than $500 are depreciated over their estimated useful lives
        using the straight line method and the following rates:
                                                                               Percent
        Production, projection, editing and sound equipment                     10–30
        Office furniture, equipment and computers                               10–40
        Depreciation rates and methods are reviewed annually.

        Amortisation of Leasehold Improvements
        Leasehold improvements are amortised over the lease term or estimated useful life, whichever is the shorter,
        using the straight line method.

        Project Investments and Project Development Funding
        The Corporation acknowledges the speculative nature of project investment and development and the low rate
        of return on projects funded through the Screen Industry Program. The Corporation has regard to industry
        standards and applies professional judgment to determine the rates of amortisation of individual investments
        and loans, in relation to recoupment projections.
        The rates of amortisation are aligned with industry standards. Amortisation rates have been set at 80 percent
        of the cost of project investments and 90 percent of the cost of project development.


     (e) Provisions
        Doubtful Debts
        The collectability of trade debts is assessed annually and provision is made for any doubtful debts.

        Employee Benefits
        Provision has been made in the financial statements, where stated, for the Corporation’s liability for employee benefits
        arising from services rendered by employees prior to balance date. This provision includes annual leave entitlements
        and pro rata entitlements for long service leave. No provision has been made for sick leave as it is regarded as an
        expense of the period during which leave is taken.
        Employment related on-costs have been included in payables.
        Liabilities in respect to long service leave entitlements have been calculated at nominal amounts based on current
        salary and wages rates. The Department of Treasury and Finance have advised that a benchmark of seven years
        can be used for a short hand estimation of long service leave liability in accordance with the provisions of Australian
        Accounting Standard AASB 119 ‘Employee Benefits’. This advice has been adopted and the long service leave
        liability has been calculated on that basis.




28
    (f)   Superannuation
          The Corporation contributes to employee nominated externally managed funds in respect of the provision
          of future retirement benefits for its employees. Pursuant to the Commonwealth Government’s Superannuation
          Guarantee legislation contributions were made at a rate of 9 percent of eligible earnings.
          The Corporation does not guarantee the performance of these funds.
          These contributions are treated as an expense when they occur (refer Note 5). There is no liability for payments
          to beneficiaries as they have been assumed by the fund.


    (g) Inventories
          Inventories are valued at their lower of cost or net realisable value. Obsolete inventories are written off.


    (h) Accounting for the Goods and Services Tax (GST)
          Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of GST except that:
          • the amount of GST incurred by the Corporation as a purchaser that is not recoverable from the Australian
            Taxation Office is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of an asset or as part of an item of expense; and
          • receivables and payables are stated with the amount of GST included.
          The net GST receivable/payable to the Australian Taxation Office has been recognised as a receivable/payable
          in the Balance Sheet.
          Cash flows are reported on a gross basis in the Cash Flow Statement. The GST component of cash flows arising
          from the investing activities, which are recoverable from, or payable to the Australian Taxation Office, have however
          been classified as operating cash flows.


    (i)   Tax Status
          The activities of the Corporation are exempt from Commonwealth income tax but are subject to other taxes such
          as fringe benefits tax, goods and services tax and payroll tax.


    (j)   Rounding
          All amounts are rounded to the nearest thousand dollars.

    An amount of $60 000 remains outstanding on a cash flow loan provided to Peach Films Pty Ltd.
    The Board considered it prudent to make a provision for impairment of this loan in this financial year.

     SOUTH AUSTRALIAN FILM CORPORATION (FOI AGENCY NUMBER G244)

     The following information is provided to satisfy the requirements
     of the Freedom of Information Act 1991.
     1        Agency Structure
             The SAFC was established by the South Australian Film Corporation
             Act 1972 (as amended) to establish a viable film industry in South
             Australia. The SAFC, through its Board of Directors, is subject
             to the general control and direction of the Minister for the Arts.
             It is accountable to Government by:
              • regular reporting to the Minister and also to Arts SA
              • the presentation of its annual budget which requires approval
                by the Minister
              • its annual financial statements and annual report
              • providing information to the Minister of any circumstance
                which is not foreshadowed in the budget.


     2        Agency Functions
             The SAFC’s role in developing the screen industry of South Australia
             includes the provision of funding, the management of a production
             and post-production facility, and representation on behalf of investors
             in the distribution of its own and other product. The SAFC is no longer
             a producer in its own right, except under special circumstances
             approved by the Minister.
