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

                     (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
                     (c)   making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.

                     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.

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

                     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
                                 These financial statements are prepared in accordance with the historical cost convention
                                 and comply with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (FRS), including related

                                 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
                                 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

                           (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
              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
      (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
                                   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

                     (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

                                          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
                  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.

                           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

                           (i)   Credit Risk
                                 Management Committee monitors the Association’s exposure to credit risks on an ongoing
                                 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.


      (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:
              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.


      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.


      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.


      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.
