On behalf of the Management Committee 41 Poh Geok Ek Chairman SANA ANNUAL REPORT Handrick Ng Honorary Treasurer Singapore, 28 April 2008 Independent Auditors’ Report To The Members of Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association We have audited the accompanying ﬁnancial statements of Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association (the “Association”), set out on pages 44 to 55, which comprise the balance sheet as at 31 December 2007, and the income and expenditure statement, statement of changes in funds and cash ﬂow statement for the year then ended, and a summary of signiﬁcant accounting policies and other explanatory notes. The ﬁnancial statements for the year ended 31 December 2006 were audited by other auditors, whose report dated 15 May 2007 expressed an unqualiﬁed opinion on those statements. Management Committee’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements The Association’s Management Committee is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these ﬁnancial statements in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards. This responsibility includes: (a) devising and maintaining a system of internal accounting controls sufﬁcient to provide a reasonable assurance that assets are safeguarded against loss from unauthorised use or disposition; and transactions are properly authorised and that they are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of true and fair balance sheets and income and expenditure statements and to maintain accountability of assets; (b) selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and 42 (c) making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. SANA ANNUAL REPORT Auditors’ Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these ﬁnancial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with Singapore Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the ﬁnancial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the ﬁnancial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the ﬁnancial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal controls relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the ﬁnancial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal controls. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the ﬁnancial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufﬁcient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, (a) the ﬁnancial statements are properly drawn up in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards so are to give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Association as at 31 December 2007 and the income and expenditure, changes in funds and cash ﬂows of the Association for the year ended on that date; and (b) the accounting and other records required by the regulations enacted under the Charities Act, Chapter 37 to be kept by the Association have been properly kept in accordance with those regulations.

Notes To The Financial Statements - 31 December 2007 The following notes form an integral part of the ﬁnancial statements. 1. GENERAL The Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association (the “Association”) is registered as a society (Registration No. 0249/1971) under the Societies Act, Chapter 311. The Association is also registered as a charity (Registration No. 00039) under the Charities Act, Chapter 37. The Association is approved as an institution of public character under Section 37 (3) (c) of the Singapore Income Tax Act, Chapter 134, currently for a period of 5 years commencing 1 August 2005. The Association’s registered ofﬁce is at 2 Sengkang Square, #05-01 Sengkang Community Hub, Singapore 545025. The principal activities of the Association are to conduct preventive education programmes against drug and inhalant abuse, to provide religious and social counselling for the inmates in the drug rehabilitation centres and aftercare assistance for those released from these centres on supervision. 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (a) Basis of Preparation The Association presents its ﬁnancial statements in Singapore dollars, which is also its functional currency. 48 These ﬁnancial statements are prepared in accordance with the historical cost convention and comply with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (FRS), including related SANA ANNUAL REPORT Interpretations promulgated by the Accounting Standards Council. (b) FRS and INT FRS not yet effective The Association has not applied any new FRS or INT FRS (Interpretations of Financial Reporting Standards) that has been issued as at the balance sheet date but is not yet effective. The Management Committee does not anticipate the adoption of the new FRS and INT FRS in future ﬁnancial periods to have any material impact on the Association’s ﬁnancial statements in the period of initial application. (c) Property, Plant and Equipment Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment loss, if any. Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line method so as to write off the cost of these assets over their estimated useful lives. The estimated useful lives are as follows: Furniture and ﬁttings 3 years Ofﬁce equipment 3 years The residual values and useful lives of property, plant and equipment are reviewed and adjusted as appropriate at each balance sheet date. Fully depreciated assets are retained in the ﬁnancial statements until they are no longer in use. (d) Investments A. Classiﬁcation The Association classiﬁes its investments in the following categories: held-to-maturity ﬁnancial assets and available-for-sale ﬁnancial assets. The classiﬁcation depends on the purpose for which the investments are acquired. Management Committee determines the classiﬁcation of its investments at initial recognition and re-evaluates this designation at every reporting date, with the exception that the designation of ﬁnancial assets at fair value through proﬁt or loss is not revocable. (i) Held-to-maturity ﬁnancial assets Quoted debt securities are held on a long term basis and classiﬁed as held-to- maturity ﬁnancial assets. Held-to-maturity ﬁnancial assets are non-derivative ﬁnancial assets with ﬁxed or determinable payments and ﬁxed maturities that the Association has the positive intention and ability to hold to maturity. Held-to-maturity ﬁnancial assets are recognised initially at fair value plus transaction costs, and subsequently carried at amortised costs using the effective interest method, less allowance for impairment. (ii) Available-for-sale ﬁnancial assets Unquoted equity securities are held on a long term basis and classiﬁed as available-for-sale ﬁnancial assets. Available-for-sale ﬁnancial assets are recognised initially at fair value plus transaction costs, and subsequently carried at fair value. Unrealised gains and losses arising from changes in fair value of these ﬁnancial assets are recognised directly in the statement of changes in funds. When available-for-sale ﬁnancial assets are sold or impaired, the accumulated fair value adjustments in the statement of changes in funds is recognised in the income and expenditure statement. B. Recognition and Derecognition Investments are recognised in the balance sheet when the Association becomes a contractual party to the contractual provisions of the ﬁnancial instrument. Purchases and sales of investments are recognised on trade-date, that is, the date on which the Association commits to purchase or sell the asset. Investments are derecognised when the rights to receive cash ﬂows from the investments have expired or have been transferred and the Association has transferred substantially all risks and rewards of ownership. On derecognition of an asset, the 49 difference between the net sale proceeds and its carrying amount is taken to the SANA ANNUAL REPORT income and expenditure statement. Any amount in the fair value reserve relating to that asset is also taken to the income and expenditure statement. (e) Receivables Receivables are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less allowance for impairment. Receivables with a short duration are not discounted. (f) Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash in hand, cash at bank and bank deposits with ﬁnancial institutions which are subject to insigniﬁcant risks of changes in value. Cash equivalents are stated at amounts at which they are convertible into cash. (g) Funds (i) Development Funds Development funds comprise funds transferred from accumulated funds and are transferred at the discretion of the Management Committee. Development funds are set aside for the development of the Association’s future activities including contingencies. (ii) Miscellaneous Funds Miscellaneous funds comprise funds of religious and other groups afﬁliated with the Association and are used solely for the furtherance of the objectives of the respective religious and other groups. (h) Payables Payables are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. (i) Revenue Recognition (i) Donation and Fund Raising Income Provided there is evidence of entitlement, as expressed in writing, donations and income from fund raising events are recognised in the income and expenditure statement in the period of receipt or when they become receivable. (ii) Government Grants Government grants are only recognised when there is reasonable assurance that the conditions attached to the grant are met and the right to receive payment is established. These grants are recognised as income in the income and expenditure statement to match the related operating expenditure. (iii) Interest Income Interest income is recognised on a time-proportion basis, using the effective interest method, unless collectibility is in doubt. (j) Employee Beneﬁts (i) Deﬁned Contribution Plans The Association makes contributions to the state provident fund (Central Provident Fund). Such contributions are recognised as compensation expenses in the same period as the employment that gave rise to the contributions. (ii) Short-term Compensated Absences Employee entitlements to annual leave are recognised when they accrue to employees. A provision is made for the estimated liability for employee entitlements to annual leave as a result of services rendered by employees up to the balance sheet date. (k) Impairment of Assets A. Impairment of Financial Assets 50 (i) Impairment of Held-to-maturity Financial Assets and Other Receivables If there is objective evidence that an impairment loss has been incurred in respect of a ﬁnancial asset, the amount of the loss is measured as the difference SANA ANNUAL REPORT between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash ﬂows, discounted at the original effective interest rate (i.e. the effective interest rate computed at initial recognition of these ﬁnancial assets). The carrying amount of the asset shall be reduced either directly or through the use of an allowance account. The amount of the loss shall be recognised in the income and expenditure statement. If, in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to any event occurring after the impairment was recognised, the previously recognised impairment loss shall be reversed either directly or by adjusting an allowance account. The amount of the reversal shall be recognised in the income and expenditure statement. (ii) Impairment of Available-for-sale Financial Assets A signiﬁcant or prolonged decline in the fair value of an available-for-sale ﬁnancial asset is considered in determining whether the asset is impaired. If any such evidence exists, the cumulative loss – measured as the difference between the acquisition cost and the current fair value, less any impairment loss on the ﬁnancial assets previously recognised in the income and expenditure statement – is removed from the fair value reserve in the statement of changes in funds and recognised in the income and expenditure statement. Impairment losses recognised in the income and expenditure statement for equity investments are not reversed through the income and expenditure statement until the equity investments are disposed. B. Impairment of Non-Financial Assets The carrying amount of property, plant and equipment is reviewed at each balance sheet date to determine whether there is any indication of impairment. If such indication exists, the asset’s recoverable amount is estimated. An impairment loss is recognised whenever the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is the greater of the asset’s net selling price and its value in use. The value in use is the present value of estimated future cash ﬂows expected to arise from the continuing use of the asset and from its disposal at the end of its useful life. An impairment loss is charged to the income and expenditure statement unless it reverses a previous revaluation, in which case, it will be charged to statement of changes in funds. An impairment loss is reversed if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount or when there is an indication that the impairment loss recognised for the asset no longer exists or decreases. An impairment loss is reversed only to the extent that the asset’s carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined if no impairment loss had been recognised. (l) Provisions Provisions are recognised when the Association has a present legal or constructive obligations as a result of past events, it is probable that an outﬂow of resources will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate of the amount can be made. (m) Leases Operating Leases Leases whereby the lessor effectively retains substantially all the risks and beneﬁts of ownership of the leased item are classiﬁed as operating leases. When the Association is the lessee, operating lease payments are recognised as an expense in the income and expenditure statement on a straight line basis over the lease term. 3.

Members of the committee are volunteers and receive no monetary remuneration for their contribution. 10. TAXATION No income tax is provided for current year as with effect from year of assessment 2008, the Association, which has been registered as a charity, will be exempted from income tax in compliance with the Income Tax Act. In 2006, the tax liability of the Association was regulated by Section 13(1)(M) of the Income Tax Act, whereby the Association was required to apply 80% of donations it received and of its income in the preceding year for charity and charitable objects, unless the Comptroller otherwise permits. The Association had met the requirement and therefore no provision for taxation had been made in the ﬁnancial statements for 2006. 11. FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT The Association is exposed to minimal ﬁnancial risks. The Association does not have a formal overall risk management programme but reviews overall risk on an informal basis. Risk management practices are determined and carried out by the Management Committee and they are summarised below: (i) Credit Risk Management Committee monitors the Association’s exposure to credit risks on an ongoing basis. Cash and cash equivalents are placed with ﬁnancial institutions with good credit ratings. As at the balance sheet date, there was no signiﬁcant concentration of credit risk. The maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by the carrying amount of each ﬁnancial asset. (ii) Interest Rate Risk The Association’s exposure to interest rate risk arises primarily from its ﬁxed deposits placed with ﬁnancial institutions. The Association constantly monitors movements in interest rates to ensure deposits are placed with ﬁnancial institutions offering optimal rates of return. The interest rates and terms of maturity of ﬁnancial assets are disclosed in the notes to the ﬁnancial statements. (iii) Liquidity Risk The Association manages its operating cash ﬂows and the availability of funding so as to ensure that a sufﬁcient level of cash and cash equivalents is maintained to meet its working capital requirement. 12. FAIR VALUES OF FINANCIAL ASSETS AND LIABILITIES (i) Investments The fair value of quoted ﬁnancial assets is determined by reference to its quoted bid price at the reporting date. The fair value of the held-to-maturity ﬁnancial assets is $315,000 (2006: $312,000). The fair value of the available-for-sale ﬁnancial assets, being an unquoted equity investment, cannot be reliably measured as there is no quoted market price in an active market and other methods of determining fair value do not result in a reasonable estimate. Consequently cost has been used as the measurement basis. (ii) Other Financial Assets and Liabilities 55 The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, receivables and payables approximate SANA ANNUAL REPORT their fair values due to their short term nature. 13. OPERATING LEASE COMMITMENTS As at the balance sheet date, the Association has commitments for future minimum lease payments under non-cancellable operating leases as follows: 2007 2006 $ $ Payable within 1 year 16,800 16,800 Payable after 1 year but not later than 5 years 36,100 52,900 52,900 69,700 The above operating lease commitments are based on known rental rates as at the date of this report and do not include any revision in rates which may be determined by the lessor. 14. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR 2006 The ﬁnancial statements for the year ended 31 December 2006 were audited by another ﬁrm of auditors (other than Lo Hock Ling & Co.) whose report dated 15 May 2007 expressed an unqualiﬁed opinion on those statements. 15. AUTHORISATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS The ﬁnancial statements of the Association for the year ended 31 December 2007 were authorised for issue in accordance with a resolution of the Management Committee dated 28 April 2008. 56 SANA ANNUAL REPORT This page has been intentionally left blank.
