In preparing the financial statements the directors accept responsibility for the following: Maintenance of proper accounting records; Selection of suitable accounting policies and applying them consistently; Making judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; Compliance with applicable accounting standards, when preparing financial statements; and Preparation of financial statements on a going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume  that the company and the group will continue in business.

Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended

We have audited the consolidated financial statements of Malawi Property Investment Company Limited and its subsidiaries as set out on pages 13 to 47, which comprise the consolidated statement of financial position as at 31 December 2010, and the consolidated statement of comprehensive income, consolidated statement of changes in equity and consolidated statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

Managements Responsibility for the Financial Statements


Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable preparation of consolidated financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entitys preparation and fair presentation of the consolidated 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 entitys internal control. An audit also includes evaluating appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated 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, the consolidated financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of Malawi Property Investment Company Limited and its subsidiaries as at 31 December 2010, and of their financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and the Malawi Companies Act, 1984, so far as concerns the members of the company.

Significant accounting policies

The principal accounting policies are set out below.

3.1

Statement of compliance

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

3.2

Basis of preparation

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in terms of the historical cost basis with the exception of investment properties, which are included at valuation. Historical cost is generally based on the fair value of the consideration given in exchange for assets as explained in the accounting policies below.

3.3

Basis of consolidation

The consolidated financial statements incorporate the financial statements of the Malawi Property Investment Company Limited (MPICO) and entities controlled by MPICO. Control is achieved where the Company has the power to govern the financial and operating policies of an entity so as to obtain benefits from its activities. Income and expenses of subsidiaries acquired or disposed of during the year are included in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income from the effective date of acquisition and up to the effective date of disposal, as appropriate. Total comprehensive income of subsidiaries is attributed to the owners of the Company and to the non-controlling interests even if this results in the non-controlling interests having a deficit balance. When necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements of subsidiaries to bring their accounting policies into line with those used by other members of the Group. All intra-group transactions, balances, income and expenses are eliminated in full on consolidation.

3.4

Plant and equipment

Plant and equipment are shown at cost, less related depreciation. Plant and equipment are depreciated on the straight line basis at rates that will reduce book amounts to estimated residual values over the anticipated useful lives of the assets as follows:

Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended

Fixtures, equipment and computers Motor vehicles

5 years 4 years

The assets residual values and useful lives are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at every year-end. An item of plant and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected to arise from the continued use of the asset.

3.5

Investment properties

Investment property, which is property held to earn rentals and/or for capital appreciation (including property under construction for such purposes), is measured initially at its cost, including transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, investment property is measured at fair value. Gains or losses arising from changes in the fair value of investment property are included in profit or loss for the year in which they arise. The increase in the fair value of investment properties, net of the related deferred tax, is appropriated to a non-distributable reserve in compliance with profit distribution restrictions included in the Malawi Companies Act, 1984. In the event of disposal of the property held at fair value, the related portion of the reserve is transferred to the distributable reserve. The statement of comprehensive income will then report a profit or loss on disposal based on the difference between proceeds and the carrying value. A property is deemed to have been sold when formal Government consent to the sale is received and that investment property is derecognised upon disposal or when the investment property is permanently withdrawn from use and no future economic benefits are expected from the disposal. Properties in the course of construction for supply or administrative purposes are carried at cost, less any recognised impairment loss. Cost includes professional fees and borrowing costs capitalised in accordance with the Groups accounting policy. Such properties are classified to the appropriate categories of property, plant and equipment when completed and are ready for intended use.

3.6

Non-current assets held for sale

Non-current assets and disposal groups are classified as held for sale if their carrying amount will be recovered principally through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. This condition is regarded as met only when the sale is highly probable and the asset (or disposal group) is available for immediate sale in its present condition. Management must be committed to the sale, which should be expected to qualify for recognition as a completed sale within one year from the date of classification. Non-current assets classified as held for sale are measured at the lower of their previous carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell except where the measurement is specifically covered by another standard.

3.7

Taxation

Income tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable and deferred tax.

Current tax
The tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the year. Taxable profit differs from net profit as reported in the statement of comprehensive income because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other years and it further excludes items that are never taxable or deductible. The Groups liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted by the end of the reporting period.

Deferred tax
Deferred tax is recognised on differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of the taxable profit. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are generally recognised for all deductible temporary differences to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilised. Such deferred tax assets and liabilities are not recognised if the temporary difference arises from goodwill or from the initial recognition (other than in a business combination) of other assets and liabilities in a transaction that affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for taxable temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries and associates, and interests in joint ventures, except where the Group is able to control the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax assets arising from deductible temporary differences associated with such investments and interests are only recognised to the extent that it is probable that there will be sufficient taxable profits against which to utilise the benefits of the temporary differences and they are expected to reverse in the foreseeable future. The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at the end of each reporting period and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the asset to be recovered. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the year in which the liability is settled or the asset realised, based on tax rates (and tax laws) that have been substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period. The measurement of deferred tax liabilities and assets reflects the tax consequences that would follow from the manner in which the company expects, at the reporting date, to recover or settle the carrying amount of its assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right to set off current tax assets against current tax liabilities and when they relate to income taxes levied by the same taxation authority and the Group intends to settle its current tax assets and liabilities on a net basis.

Current and deferred tax for the year


Current and deferred tax are recognised as an expense or income in profit or loss, except when they relate to items that are recognised outside profit or loss (whether in other comprehensive income or directly in equity), in which case the tax is also recognised outside profit or loss, or where they arise from the initial accounting for a business combination. In the case of a business combination, the tax effect is taken into account in the accounting for the business combination.

Foreign currencies

(a) Functional and presentation currency


Items included in the financial statements of each of the Groups companies are measured using Malawi Kwacha, the functional currency of the primary economic environment in which the entire Group operates. The consolidated financial statements are presented in Malawi Kwacha, which is the Groups functional and presentation currency.

Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended

(b) Transactions and balances


Transactions in currencies other than Malawi Kwacha are recognised at the rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of the transactions. At the end of each reporting period, monetary items denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing at that date. Non-monetary items carried at fair value that are denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing at the date when the fair value was determined. Non-monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are not retranslated. Exchange differences are recognised in profit or loss in the period in which they arise except for exchange differences on foreign currency borrowings relating to assets under construction for future productive use, which are included in the cost of those assets when they are regarded as an adjustment to interest costs on those foreign currency borrowings.

3.9

Pension fund

MPICO contributes to a defined contribution pension scheme administered by Old Mutual Malawi who are also a shareholder of the company. All payments made to the scheme are charged as an expense as they fall due.

3.10 Borrowing costs


Borrowing costs directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of qualifying assets, which are assets that necessarily take a substantial period of time to get ready for their intended use or sale, are added to the cost of those assets, until such time as the assets are substantially ready for their intended use or sale. Investment income earned on the temporary investment of specific borrowings pending their expenditure on qualifying assets is deducted from the borrowing costs eligible for capitalisation. All other borrowing costs are recognised in profit or loss in the period in which they are incurred.

3.11 Revenue recognition


Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable. Revenue is reduced for estimated rebates and other similar allowances. Rental income from investment properties is recognised on a straight-line basis over the term of the relevant lease. Such rental income recognition commences when an occupancy agreement with a tenant is formalised. Dividend revenue from investments is recognised when the shareholders right to receive payment has been established. Interest revenue is accrued on a time basis, by reference to the principal outstanding and at the effective interest rate applicable, which is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash receipts through the expected life of the financial asset to that assets net carrying amount.

3.12 Financial assets


Investments are recognised and derecognised on a trade date where the purchase or sale of an investment is under a contract whose terms require delivery of the investment within the timeframe established by the market concerned, and are initially measured at fair value, net of transaction costs except for those financial assets classified as at fair value through profit or loss, which are initially measured at fair value. Financial assets are classified into the following specified categories: financial assets as at fair value through profit or loss (FVTPL), held-to-maturity investments, available-for-sale (AFS) financial assets and loans and receivables. The classification depends on the nature and purpose of the financial assets and is determined at the time of initial recognition.

Effective interest method


The effective interest method is a method of calculating the amortised cost of a financial asset and of allocating interest income over the relevant period. The effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash receipts through the expected life of the financial asset, or, where appropriate, a shorter period. Income is recognised on an effective interest basis for debt instruments other than those financial assets designated as at FVTPL.

Financial assets at FVTPL


Financial assets are classified as at FVTPL where the financial asset is either held for trading or it is designated as at FVTPL. A financial asset is classified as held for trading if: it has been acquired principally for the purpose of selling in the near future; or it is a part of an identified portfolio of financial instruments that the Group manages together and has a recent actual  pattern of short-term profit-taking; or it is a derivative that is not designated and effective as a hedging instrument.

A financial asset other than a financial asset held for trading may be designated as at FVTPL upon initial recognition if: such designation eliminates or significantly reduces a measurement or recognition inconsistency that would  otherwise arise; or the financial asset forms part of a Group of financial assets or financial liabilities or both, which is managed and  its performance is evaluated on a fair value basis, in accordance with the Groups documented risk management or investment strategy, and information about the grouping is provided internally on that basis; or it forms part of a contract containing one or more embedded derivatives, and IAS 39 permits the entire combined  contract (asset or liability) to be designated as at FVTPL. Financial assets at FVTPL are stated at fair value, with any resultant gain or loss recognised in profit or loss. The net gain or loss recognised in profit or loss incorporates any dividend or interest earned on the financial asset.

Financial assets at FVTPL (Continued) AFS financial assets
AFS financial assets are non-derivatives that are either designated as AFC or are not classified as (a) loans and receivables, (b) held-to-maturity investments or (c) financial assets at fair value through profit or loss.

Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended

Loans and receivables


Trade receivables, loans, and other receivables that have fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market are classified as loans and receivables. Loans and receivables are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method less any impairment. Interest income is recognised by applying the effective interest rate, except for shortterm receivables where the recognition of interest would be immaterial.

Impairment of financial assets


Financial assets, other than those at FVTPL, are assessed for indicators of impairment at the end of each reporting period. Financial assets are impaired where there is objective evidence that, as a result of one or more events that occurred after the initial recognition of the financial asset, the estimated future cash flows of the investment have been impacted. For financial assets carried at amortised cost, the amount of the impairment is the difference between the assets carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted at the original effective interest rate. The carrying amount of the financial asset is reduced by the impairment loss directly for all financial assets with the exception of trade receivables where the carrying amount is reduced through the use of an allowance account. When a trade receivable is uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance account. Subsequent recoveries of amounts previously written off are credited against the allowance account. Changes in the carrying amount of the allowance account are recognised in profit or loss. When an AFS financial asset is considered to be impaired, cumulative gains or losses previously recognised in other comprehensive income are reclassified to profit or loss in the period. With the exception of AFS equity instruments, if, in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognised, the previously recognised impairment loss is reversed through profit or loss to the extent that the carrying amount of the investment at the date the impairment is reversed does not exceed what the amortised cost would have been had the impairment not been recognised. In respect of AFS equity securities, impairment losses previously recognised in profit or loss are not reversed through profit or loss. Any increase in fair value subsequent to an impairment loss is recognised in other comprehensive income.

Derecognition of financial assets


The group derecognises a financial asset only when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or when it transfers the financial asset and substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the asset to another entity.

3.13 Financial liabilities and equity instruments issued by the Group


Classification as debt or equity
Debt and equity instruments are classified as either financial liabilities or as equity in accordance with the substance of the contractual arrangement.

Equity instruments
An equity instrument is any contract that evidences a residual interest in the assets of an entity after deducting all of its liabilities. Equity instruments are recorded at the proceeds received, net of direct issue costs.

Dividends on ordinary shares


Dividends on ordinary shares are recognised in equity in the period in which they are approved by the company.

Financial liabilities
Financial liabilities are classified as either financial liabilities at FVTPL or other financial liabilities. Financial liabilities at FVTPL Financial liabilities are classified as at FVTPL where the financial liability is either held for trading or it is designated as at FVTPL. A financial liability is classified as held for trading if: it has been incurred principally for the purpose of repurchasing in the near future; or it is a part of an identified portfolio of financial instruments that the Group manages together and has a recent  actual pattern of short-term profit-taking; or it is a derivative that is not designated and effective as a hedging instrument.

A financial liability other than a financial liability held for trading may be designated as at FVTPL upon initial recognition if: such designation eliminates or significantly reduces a measurement or recognition inconsistency that would otherwise  arise; or the financial liability forms part of a Group of financial assets or financial liabilities or both, which is managed and  its performance is evaluated on a fair value basis, in accordance with the Groups documented risk management or investment strategy, and information about the grouping is provided internally on that basis; or it forms part of a contract containing one or more embedded derivatives, and IAS 39 permits the entire combined  contract (asset or liability) to be designated as at FVTPL.

Financial liabilities at FVTPL


Financial liabilities at FVTPL are stated at fair value, with any resultant gain or loss recognised in profit or loss. The net gain or loss recognised in profit or loss incorporates any interest paid on the financial liability.

Other financial liabilities
Other financial liabilities, including borrowings, are initially measured at fair value, net of transaction costs. Other financial liabilities are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, with interest expense recognised on an effective yield basis.

Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended

The effective interest method is a method of calculating the amortised cost of a financial liability and of allocating interest expense over the relevant period. The effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discounts estimated future cash payments through the expected life of the financial liability, or, where appropriate, a shorter period.

Derecognition of financial liabilities


The Group derecognises financial liabilities when, and only when, the Groups obligations are discharged, cancelled or they expire.

3.14 Impairment of non-financial assets


At the end of each reporting period, the Group reviews the carrying amounts of its tangible and intangible assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss (if any). Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Group estimates the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. Where a reasonable and consistent basis of allocation can be identified, corporate assets are also allocated to individual cash-generating units, or otherwise they are allocated to the smallest group of cash-generating units for which a reasonable and consistent allocation basis can be identified. Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives and intangible assets not yet available for use are tested for impairment at least annually, and whenever there is an indication that the asset may be impaired. Recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risk specific to the asset for which the estimates of future cash flows have not been adjusted. If the recoverable amount of an asset is estimated to be less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset is reduced to its recoverable amount. Impairment losses are recognised as an expense immediately. If an impairment loss subsequently reverses, the carrying amount of the asset is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount, but only to the extent that the increased carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognised for the asset in prior years. A reversal of an impairment loss is recognised as income immediately.

3.15 Provisions
Provisions are recognised when the Group has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of a past event, it is probable that the company will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. The amount recognised as a provision is the best estimate of the consideration required to settle the present obligation at the end of the reporting period, taking into account the risks and uncertainties surrounding the obligation. Where a provision is measured using the cash flows estimated to settle the present obligation, its carrying amount is the present value of those cash flows. When some or all of the economic benefits required to settle a provision are expected to be recovered from a third party, the receivable is recognised as an asset if it is virtually certain that reimbursement will be received and the amount of the receivable can be measured reliably.

4.  Critical accounting judgements and key sources of estimation uncertainty


The preparation of financial statements, in conformity with IFRS, requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgement in the process of applying the principal accounting policies of the company. Estimates and judgements are evaluated and based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

4.1

Critical judgements in applying the Groups accounting policies

No critical judgements were made by the directors during the current period which would have a material impact on the financial statements.

4.2

Key sources of estimation uncertainty

Valuation of investment properties


Investment properties are carried at fair value in accordance with IAS 40 Investment Property. Fair values have been determined through valuations carried out by Knight Frank, qualified and registered valuers.

Provision for doubtful debts


Provision for doubtful debts is based upon a policy which takes into account past transaction history with debtors and projected collections. Actual collection experience may differ from the current projections.

Provision for severance pay


An estimate of MK160 million (2009: MK153 million) has been made in respect of severance pay based on the current provisions of the Employment Law and based on the assumption that employee terminations will be evenly spread between the immediate future and anticipated retirement dates. Some of these current provisions are being reviewed and amended as detailed in note 15. As such the actual amounts to be paid in future may be different.

Operating Segments

Operating segments have been identified on the basis of internal reports about components of the Group that are regularly reviewed by the chief operating decision maker in order to allocate resources to the segments and to assess their performance.

Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended

5.2 Products and services from which reportable segments derive their revenues
The Group has one principal line of business rental and management of investment property. Information reported to and used by the Managing Director for decision making for the purposes of resource allocation and assessment of segment performance is more specifically focussed on each of the Groups current 33 (2009: 35) investment properties. Though one of the properties contributed MK140 million (2009: MK120 million) representing 15% (2009: 14%) of the total rental revenue in the current year and its value at MK1,256 million (2009: MK947 million) was 15% (2009: 13%) of the total investment property value, no single investment property contributes close to 75% of the total revenue from external customers.

Interest is charged on receivables in respect of outstanding rentals at the prevailing commercial bank lending rate. As at year end the amount outstanding from Government was MK702 million (2009: nil) for the Group {Company MK250 million (2009: nil)}. The total interest charged on overdue Government rentals and other tenants amounted to MK101 million (2009: MK75 million) {Company MK34 million (2009: MK16.3 million)} for the year. The Group has provided fully for all receivables over 90 days, except for rentals receivable from Government, because historical experience is such that receivables that are past due beyond 90 days are generally not recoverable.

In determining the recoverability of rentals receivable, the Group considers any change in the credit quality of the receivable from the date credit was initially granted up to the reporting date. Except for the Government which accounts for approximately 69% (2009: 67%) rental income, the concentration of credit risk is limited due to the customer base being large and unrelated. Accordingly, the directors believe that there is no further credit provision required in excess of the provision already made for doubtful receivables.

Borrowings

The borrowings relate to an amount borrowed from National Bank of Malawi to finance construction of The Gateway Mall (see note 8).

15. Provisions
Severance pay 160,484 153,425 160,484 153,425

The provisions for severance pay relate to severance pay allowance provided for in accordance with the Employment Act and the Groups conditions of service. The amount has been determined as detailed in note 4.2 to the consolidated financial statements. The legislation giving rise to the requirements to provide for severance pay, the Employment Act has been amended. The principal change to the Act is the removal of the provision requiring employers to accrue for severance pay relating to future retirement costs. In addition, the amended Act has introduced an obligation on the part of the employer to ensure that employees are covered by registered pension arrangements. The new Act, which at the date of approval of these financial statements had not yet been gazetted, was designed to be introduced in conjunction with new pensions legislation which has been drafted but not yet been passed through Parliament. Both these pieces of legislation, if applied as intended, will give rise to changes in accounting for post retirement benefits for all employers.

Financial risk management (continued)

The Group has exposure to the following risks arising from its transactions in financial instruments: Capital risk Foreign currency risk Interest rate risk Credit risk Liquidity risk This note presents information about the Groups exposure to each of the above risks, the companys objectives, policies and processes for identification, measurement, monitoring and controlling risk, and the companys management of capital. Details of the significant accounting policies and methods adopted, including the criteria for recognition, the basis of measurement and the basis on which income and expenses are recognised, in respect of each class of financial asset, financial liability and equity instrument are disclosed in note 3 to the financial statements. Below is an analysis of how the Group manages the risk associated with the following relevant financial instruments.

Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended

(a) Capital risk management


The Group manages its capital to ensure that it will be able to continue as a going concern while maximising the return to stakeholders through the optimisation of the debt and equity balance. The capital structure of the Group consists of mainly equity comprising issued capital, reserves and retained earnings as disclosed in the statement of changes in equity. The Board reviews the capital situation on an annual basis and based on each review, the Company will balance its overall capital structure through the payment of dividends and raising finance through borrowings or repaying any existing borrowings.

(b) Foreign currency risk management


The Group undertakes certain transactions denominated in foreign currencies. Hence, exposures to exchange rate fluctuations arise. The exposure to foreign currency risk has significantly increased in the current year due to the engagement of the contractors and consultants involved in the construction of the Mall. The contractors and consultants invoice the Group in foreign currency and fluctuations in the exchange rate would significantly affect the performance for the year through exchange gains and losses. As at year end, the Group had the following foreign currency exposure.

The companys exposure to interest rate risk is minimal as it does not have significant borrowings. All borrowings are at commercial rates based on the bank base lending rate

(d)

Credit risk management

Credit risk refers to the risk that a counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Group. The Group has adopted a policy of only dealing with creditworthy counterparties and ensuring that tenants pay rentals in advance, as a means of mitigating the risk of financial loss from defaults. The Groups exposure and the credit worthiness of its tenants is continuously monitored. Excluding Government rentals, receivables are from a large number of tenants, spread across diverse sectors and geographical areas. Apart from the exposure to Government, the Group does not have any significant credit risk exposure to any single counterparty or any group of counterparties having similar characteristics. The credit risk exposure is managed by proactively engaging Government in good time on amounts due from it. The credit risk on liquid funds is limited because the counterparties are financial institutions in a highly regulated industry. The carrying amount of receivables (note 11) and cash and cash equivalents (note 18) recorded in the financial statements, grossed up for any allowances for losses, represents the Groups maximum exposure to credit risk.

(e) Liquidity risk management


Ultimate responsibility for liquidity risk management rests with the board of directors, which has built an appropriate liquidity risk management framework for the management of the entitys short, medium and long-term funding and liquidity management requirements. The entity manages liquidity risk by maintaining adequate reserves, banking facilities and by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows and matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities. The following tables detail the Groups and Companys remaining contractual maturity for its non-derivative financial assets and financial liabilities. The tables have been drawn up based on the undiscounted contractual maturities of the financial assets and cash flows of financial liabilities based on the earliest date on which the company can be required to pay.
