Schedule of Unquantifiable
Contingencies

As at 30 June
2001, the Commission was named as the respondent in three applications
for special leave in the
High Court which are yet to be heard, a number of matters before the
Federal Court of Australia and a matter before the District Court of
South Australia. It is not possible to estimate the amounts of the eventual
payments that may be required in relation to these claims, though it
is not common for costs to be awarded against the Commission in these
matters.
The Commission has also intervened in three matters since June 2000.
Although it is technically possible that a cost order could be made
against the Commission in one of these matters, such an order is unlikely.
The above schedules should be read in conjunction with the accompanying
notes.

Human Rights and Equal Opportunity
Commission Notes to and forming part of the Financial Statements
for the year ended 30 June 2001

Note 1 - Objectives
of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission

The Commission
has one outcome:

"An Australian
society in which the human rights of all are respected, protected
and promoted ".
The Commission's objective is to ensure that Australians:

  • have access
    to independent human rights complaint handling and public inquiries
    processes; and
  • benefit
    from human rights education, promotion, monitoring and compliance
    activities.

 

Note 2 - Summary
of significant accounting policies

2.1 Basis of
Accounting

The financial statements
are required by section 49 of the Financial Management and Accountability
Act 1997
and are a general purpose financial report.

The statements
have been prepared in accordance with:

  • Schedule 1 of
    the Financial Management and Accountability (Financial Statements
    2000-01) Orders made by the Finance Minister for the preparation of
    Financial Statements in relation to financial years ending on 30 June
    2001;
  • Australian Accounting
    Standards and Accounting Interpretations issued by the Australian
    Accounting Standards Boards;
  • other authoritative
    pronouncements of the Boards; and
  • the Consensus
    Views of the Urgent Issues Group.
  •  

The statements
have been prepared having regard to:

  • Statements of
    Accounting Concepts;
  • the Explanatory
    Notes to Schedule 1, and Guidance Notes issued by the Department of
    Finance and Administration.

The Agency Statements
of Financial Performance and Financial Position have been prepared on
an accrual basis and are in accordance with historical cost convention,
except for certain assets which as noted, are at valuation. Except where
stated, no allowance is made for the effect of changing prices on the
results or the financial position.
Assets and liabilities are recognised in the Commission's Statement
of Financial Position when and only when it is probable that future
economic benefits will flow and the amounts of the assets or liabilities
can be reliably measured. Assets and liabilities arising under agreements
equally proportionally unperformed are however not recognised unless
required by an Accounting Standard. Liabilities and assets which are
unrecognised are reported in the Schedule of Commitments and the Schedule
of Contingencies.
Revenues and expenses are recognised in the Agency Statement of Financial
Performance when and only when the flow or consumption or loss of economic
benefits has occurred and can be reliably measured.
The continued existence of the Commission in its present form, and with
its present functions, is dependent on Government policy and on continuing
appropriations by Parliament for the Commission's administration and
functions.

2.2 Changes
in Accounting Policy

Changes in accounting
policy have been identified in this note under their appropriate headings.
The accounting policies used in the preparation of these financial statements
are consistent with those used
in 1999-2000.

2.3 Agency and
Administered items

The Commission
has no administered items.

2.4 Reporting
by Outcomes

A comparison of
Budget and Actual figures by outcome specified in the Appropriation
Acts relevant to the Agency is presented in Note 17. The net cost to
Budget outcomes shown includes intra-government costs that are eliminated
in calculating the actual budget outcome for the Government overall.

2.5 Revenues
from government

Revenues from government
are revenues relating to the core operating activities of the Commission.
Policies for accounting for revenue from government follow; amounts
and other details are given in Note 3.1.
(a) Revenues from Government - Agency Appropriations
Appropriations to the Commission for its departmental outputs are recognised
as revenue to the extent that they have been received into the Commission's
Bank account or are entitled to be received by the Commission at year
end.

(b) Resources Received
Free of Charge
Services received free of charge are recognised as revenue when and
only when a fair value can be reliably determined and the services would
have been purchased if they had not been donated. Use of those resources
is recognised as an expense.

(c) Other Revenue
Revenue from the sale of goods is recognised upon delivery of goods
to customers. Interest revenue is recognised on a proportional basis
taking into account the interest rates applicable to the financial assets.
Dividend revenue is recognised when the right to receive a dividend
has been established. Revenue from disposal of non-current assets is
recognised when control of the asset has passed to the buyer.

Agency revenue
from the rendering of a service is recognised by reference to the stage
of completion of contracts or other agreements to provide services to
Commonwealth bodies. The stage of completion is determined according
to the proportion that costs incurred to date bear to the estimated
total costs of the transaction.

2.6 Employee
entitlements

(a) Leave
The liability for employee entitlements includes provision for annual
leave and long service leave. No provision has been made for sick leave
as all sick leave is non-vesting and the average sick leave taken in
future years by employees of the Commission is estimated to be less
than the annual entitlement for sick leave.
The liability for annual leave and current long service leave reflects
the value of total leave entitlements of all employees at 30 June 2001
and is recognised at the nominal amount.
The non-current proportion of the liability for long service leave is
recognised and measured at the present value of the estimated future
cash flows to be made in respect of all employees at 30 June 2001. In
determining the present value of the liability, the Commission has taken
into account attrition rates and pay increases through promotion and
inflation.

(b) Separation
and redundancy
Provision is made for separation and redundancy payments in circumstances
where the Commission has formally identified positions as excess to
requirements and a reliable estimate of the amount of the payments can
be determined.

(c) Superannuation
Staff of the Commission contribute to the Commonwealth Superannuation
Scheme (CSS) and the Public Sector Superannuation Scheme (PSS). Employer
contributions amounting to $540,261 (1999-00:$730,948) in relation to
these schemes have been expended in these financial statements.
No liability for superannuation is recognised as at 30 June as the employer
contributions fully extinguish the accruing liability which is assumed
by the Commonwealth, except for that component at Note 8.1 which recognises
only those employer contributions accrued in 2000-01 and paid in the
subsequent year.
Employer Superannuation Productivity Benefit contributions totalled
$107,398.64 (1999-00: $140,482).

2.7 Leases

A distinction is
made between finance leases which effectively transfer from the lessor
to the lessee substantially all the risks and benefits incidental to
ownership of leased non-current assets, and operating leases under which
the lessor effectively retains all such risks and benefits. All leases
entered into by the Commission have been classified as Operating Leases
and lease payments are treated as expenses in the reporting period in
which they are incurred.
Operating lease rentals as shown in Note 4.2 represent actual rental
expense for the year adjusted for the impact of lease incentives. Calculations
are in accordance with mandatory reporting requirements.
Lease incentives taking the form of 'free' leasehold improvements and
rent holidays are recognised as liabilities. These liabilities are reduced
by allocating lease payments between rental expense and reduction of
the liability.
The lease incentive recognised as a result is amortised over the lease
term by allocating a portion of the rent expense against the current
balance. Fixed assets that are recognised are depreciated over the term
of the lease.

2.8 Unearned
Revenue

As at 30 June the
Commission recognised payments for services under contract, for which
costs have not yet beenincurred, as unearned revenue. In the event of
the services not being performed the moneys would have to be repaid.

2.9 Cash

Cash includes notes
and coins held and any deposits held at call with a bank or financial
institution.

2.10 Financial
Instruments

Accounting policies
for financial instruments are stated at Note 16.

2.11 Acquisition
of Assets

Assets are recorded
at cost on acquisition except as stated below. The cost of acquisition
includes the fair value of assets transferred in exchange and liabilities
undertaken.
Assets acquired at no cost, or for nominal consideration, are initially
recognised as assets and revenues at their fair value at the date of
acquisition, unless acquired as a consequence of restructuring arrangements.
In the latter case, assets are initially recognised as contributions
by owners at the amounts at which they were recognised in the transferor
agency's accounts immediately prior to restructuring.

2.12 Disposal
of Assets

Assets disposed
are at the end of their useful lives, or are technically obsolete or
have been found
to be un-economic to repair.

2.13 Transfer
of assets

Assets have been
relinqushed as a consequence of restructuring arrangements, at the amounts
at which they were recognised in the Commission's accounts immediately
prior to restructuring.

2.14 Property,
plant and equipment

Asset recognition
threshold
All depreciable non-current assets with historical cost equal to or
in excess of $2,000 are capitalised in the
year of acquisition and included on the Commission's Asset Register.
Except where stated all plant and
equipment is valued at historical cost.
Revaluations
Infrastructure, plant and equipment are revalued progressively in accordance
with the 'deprival' method of valuation in successive 3-year cycles,
so that no asset has a value greater than three years old. The current
cycles commenced in 1998-99. All assets on hand at the commencement
of the cycle will be revalued in 2001-02.
Assets in each class acquired after the commencement of the progressive
revaluation cycle are not captured by the progressive revaluation then
in progress.
The Commission recognises infrastructure, plant and equipment at its
depreciated replacement cost.Any assets which would not be replaced
or are surplus to the requirements are valued at net realisable value.
At 30 June 2001, the Commission had no assets in this situation. All
valuations are independent.
Recoverable amount test
Schedule 1 requires the application of the recoverable amount test to
departmental non-current assets in
accordance with AAS 10 Recoverable Amount of Non-Current Assets. The
carrying amounts of these
non-current assets have been reviewed to determine whether they are
in excess of their recoverable
amounts. In assessing recoverable amounts, the relevant cash flows have
been discounted to their present
value.
Depreciation and Amortisation
Depreciation is calculated on a straight line basis so as to write off
the cost of each item of infrastructure,
plant and equipment over its expected useful life. For leasehold improvements
the depreciation is calculated
over the lease term or the useful life, whichever is the shorter.
Depreciation/amortisation rates (useful lives) and methods are reviewed
at each balance date and necessary
adjustments are recognised in the current, and future reporting periods,
as appropriate. Residual values
are re-estimated for a change in prices only when assets are revalued.
Depreciation and amortisation rates applying to each class of depreciable
asset are based on the following
useful lives:

a 2000-2001 1999-2000
Leasehold
improvements
Lease term Lease term
Plant
and equipment
4
to 10 years
4
to 10 years

"If you require
this information in a more accessible format, please contact paffairs@humanrights.gov.au
"

The aggregate
amount of depreciation allocated for each class of asset during the
reporting period is disclosed in Note 4.3.

2.15 Taxation

The Commission's
activities are exempt from all forms of taxation except fringe benefits
tax and the goods
and services tax.

2.16 Foreign
Currency

Transactions denominated
in a foreign currency are converted at the exchange rate at the date
of the transaction. Foreign currency receivables and payables are translated
at the exchange rates current as at balance date. Associated currency
gains and losses are not material.

2.17 Insurance

The Commission
has insured for risks through the Government's insurable risk managed
fund, called Comcover. Workers compensation is insured through Comcare
Australia.

2.18 Comparative
Figures

Comparative figures
have been adjusted to conform to changes in presentation in these financial
statements
where required.

2.19 Capital
use charge (CUC)

A capital usage
charge of 12% is imposed by the Government on the net departmental assets
of the Commission.

a

The revaluations
were as at 1July 1999 in accordance with the progressive revaluation
policy stated at Note 2 and were completed by an independent valuer,
Australian Valuation Office.

line basis over the life of the lease by allocating a portion
of the rent expense against the current balance.

Financial Assets
The net fair values of cash and non-interest bearing monetary financial
assets approximate their carrying amounts.
Financial liabilities
The net fair values of lease incentives liabilities are based on discounted
cash flows using current interest rates
for liabilities with similar risk profiles.
The net fair values for trade creditors are short-term in nature and
are approximated by their carrying amounts.
d) Credit Risk Exposures
The Commission's maximum exposures to credit risk at reporting date
in relation to each class of recognised
financial assets is the carrying amount of those assets as indicated
in the Statement of Financial Position.
The Commission has no significant exposures to any concentrations of
credit risk.
All figures for credit risk referred to do not take into account the
value of any collateral or other security.
