This section provides information on the sources of finance available to the Commission during its operations, along with interest expenses (the cost of lease liabilities) and other information related to financing activities of the Commission.

This section also includes disclosures on commitments for expenditure.

6.1 Borrowings

Current lease liabilities 19,003 52,276
Total Borrowings 19,003 52,276

Borrowings of the Commission relate to lease liabilities on motor vehicles.

Leases are recognised as assets and liabilities of the Commission at amounts equal to the fair value of the lease asset or, if lower, the present value of the minimum lease payments, each determined at the inception of the lease. The lease asset is depreciated over the shorter of the estimated useful life of the asset or the term of the lease.

Minimum lease payments are apportioned between reduction of the lease liability and periodic finance charges which are calculated using the interest rate implicit in the lease and charged directly to the comprehensive operating statement.

Leases are secured borrowings as the rights to the leased assets will revert to the lessor in the event of a default.

There were no defaults and breaches of any lease condition during the current or previous year.
