Notes to the Abbreviated Accounts for the period ended 31 August 2013

1Accounting Policies

Basis of measurement and preparation of accounts
The accounts are prepared under the historic cost convention modified to include the revaluation of certain fixed assets and in accordance with the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (effective April 2008)

Turnover policy
Turnover represents the total invoice value, excluding value added tax, of sales made during the year and derives from the provision of goods falling within the company's ordinary activities.

In respect of long-term contracts and contracts for on-going services, turnover represents the value of work done in the year, including estimates of amounts not invoiced. Turnover in respect of long-term contracts and contracts for on-going services is recognised by reference to the stage of completion.

Tangible assets depreciation policy
Depreciation is provided at rates calculated to write off the cost or valuation less residual value of each asset over its expected useful life, as follows:
Land and Buildings - Land Nil and Buildings at 4% straight line
Plant and Machinery, Fixtures, Fittings and Equipment- 15% reducing balance
Motor Vehicles- 25% reducing balance

Valuation information and policy
No depreciation is provided in respect of the company's investment properties. Although the Companies Act 2006 would normally require the systematic depreciation of fixed assets, it is believed that this policy of not providing depreciation on investment property is necessary in order for the financial statements to give a true and fair view as market valuation is more relevant than a measure of consumption in the activities of the company. It is the directors' policy to maintain the property in a good condition, thus prolonging its useful life. Had the policy been to provide for depreciation on investment properties, the depreciation charge in the financial statements would have been £37,378 (2012: £37,378).

The company's investment properties are shown at market value in the accounts, any surplus over cost being transferred to a revaluation reserve; where revaluation is less than cost and is considered to be permanent in nature, the shortfall is charged to the profit and loss account to the extent that it is not covered by any balance on the revaluation reserve. Where the fall in value is considered to be temporary, any adjustment is taken to the revaluation reserve.

Other accounting policies
Leasing and Hire Purchase Commitments

Assets obtained under hire purchase contracts and finance leases are capitalised as tangible assets and depreciated over the shorter of the lease term and their useful lives. Obligations under such agreements are included in creditors net of the finance charge allocated to future periods. The finance element of the rental payment is charged to the profit and loss account so as to produce constant periodic rates of charge on the net obligations outstanding in each period.

Rentals payable under operating leases are charged against income on a straight line basis over the lease term.


Fixed asset investments are stated at cost less provision for permanent diminution in value.

Stock is valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value.

The pension costs charged in the financial statements represent the contribution payable by the company in the year.

Deferred Taxation
Deferred tax is recognised in respect of all timing differences that have originated but not reversed at the balance sheet date where transactions or events have occurred at that date that will result in an obligation to pay more, or a right to pay less or to receive more, tax, with the following exceptions:

Provision is made for tax on gains arising from the revaluation (and similar fair value adjustments) of fixed assets, and gains on disposal of fixed assets that have been rolled over into replacement assets, only to the extent that, at the balance sheet date, there is a binding agreement to dispose of the assets concerned. However, no provision is made where, on the basis of all available evidence at the balance sheet date, it is more likely than not that the taxable gain will be rolled over into replacement assets and charged to tax only where the replacement assets are sold;

Deferred tax assets are recognised only to the extent that the directors consider that it is more likely than not that there will be suitable taxable profits from which the future reversal of the underlying timing differences can be deducted.

Deferred tax is measured on an undiscounted basis at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the periods in which timing differences reverse, based on tax rates and laws enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date.

Government Grants
Grants are credited to deferred revenue. Grants towards capital expenditure are released to the profit and loss account over the expected useful life of the assets. Grants towards revenue expenditure are released to the profit and loss account as the related expenditure is incurred.

Group Accounts
The company is entitled to the exemption under Section 398 of the Companies Act 2006 from the obligation to prepare group accounts.
