Notes to the Abbreviated Accounts for the period ended 31 December 2015

1Accounting Policies

Basis of measurement and preparation of accounts
The accounts have been prepared under the historical cost convention and in accordance with the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities effective January 2015.

Turnover policy
Turnover represents the total value of goods, excluding value added tax, provided to
customers during the year, plus the value of work, excluding value added tax, performed
during the year with respect to services.

Tangible assets depreciation policy
Depreciation is provided at rates calculated to write off the cost less residual value of each
asset over its expected useful life, as follows:
Land and buildings - Straight line over fifty years
Other tangible assets - 10% - 20% per annum of cost
Tangible fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation.

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


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 company operates a defined contribution pension scheme. Contributions payable for the
year are charged in the profit and loss account.

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.
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.

Foreign currencies

Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into sterling
at the rates of exchange prevailing at the accounting date. Transactions in foreign currencies
are recorded at the date of the transactions. All differences are taken to the Profit and Loss
