These financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board on 21 September 2018.

Accounting policies

Summary of significant accounting policies and key accounting estimates

The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless otherwise stated.

Statement of compliance

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Financial Reporting Standard 102 Section 1A - 'The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland' and the Companies Act 2006.

Basis of preparation

These financial statements have been prepared using the historical cost convention except that as disclosed in the accounting policies certain items are shown at fair value.

The financial statements are presented in Sterling, which is the functional currency of the company.

Going concern

The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.

Revenue recognition

Turnover comprises the fair value of the consideration received or receivable for the sale of goods and provision of services in the ordinary course of the company’s activities. Turnover is shown net of sales/value added tax, returns, rebates and discounts.

The company recognises revenue when:
The amount of revenue can be reliably measured;
it is probable that future economic benefits will flow to the entity;
and specific criteria have been met for each of the company's activities.

Tax

The tax expense for the period comprises deferred tax. Tax is recognised in profit or loss, except that a change attributable to an item of income or expense recognised as other comprehensive income is also recognised directly in other comprehensive income.

 

R.G. Boyce Limited

Notes to the Financial Statements for the Year Ended 31 March 2018

Deferred tax is recognised in respect of all timing differences between taxable profits and profits reported in the financial statements.

Unrelieved tax losses and other deferred tax assets are recognised when it is probable that they will be recovered against the reversal of deferred tax liabilities or other future taxable profits.

Deferred tax is measured using the tax rates and laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date and that are expected to apply to the reversal of the timing difference.

Tangible assets

Tangible assets are stated in the balance sheet at cost at cost or valuation (note 6), less any subsequent accumulated depreciation and subsequent accumulated impairment losses.

The cost of tangible assets includes directly attributable incremental costs incurred in their acquisition and installation.

Depreciation

Depreciation is charged so as to write off the cost of assets, other than land and properties under construction over their estimated useful lives, as follows:

Asset class

Depreciation method and rate

Plant and machinery

10% reducing balance and 4 years straight line

Motor Vehicles

25% reducing balance

Freehold land and buildings

No depreciation is provided on freehold land and buidlings. The company follows a program of regular maintenance which involves the reinstatement of the fabric of the buildings where necessary to maintain them to such a high standard that, in the opinion of the directors, the residual values would be sufficiently high to make any depreciation charge immaterial. An annual impairment review is therefore undertaken at each year end in accordance with the provision of FRS102.

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash on hand and call deposits, and other short-term highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to a known amount of cash and are subject to an insignificant risk of change in value.

Trade debtors

Trade debtors are amounts due from customers for merchandise sold or services performed in the ordinary course of business.

Trade debtors are recognised initially at the transaction price. They are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less provision for impairment. A provision for the impairment of trade debtors is established when there is objective evidence that the company will not be able to collect all amounts due according to the original terms of the receivables.

 

R.G. Boyce Limited

Notes to the Financial Statements for the Year Ended 31 March 2018

Trade creditors

Trade creditors are obligations to pay for goods or services that have been acquired in the ordinary course of business from suppliers. Accounts payable are classified as current liabilities if the company does not have an unconditional right, at the end of the reporting period, to defer settlement of the creditor for at least twelve months after the reporting date. If there is an unconditional right to defer settlement for at least twelve months after the reporting date, they are presented as non-current liabilities.

Trade creditors are recognised initially at the transaction price and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method.

Borrowings

Interest-bearing borrowings are initially recorded at fair value, net of transaction costs. Interest-bearing borrowings are subsequently carried at amortised cost, with the difference between the proceeds, net of transaction costs, and the amount due on redemption being recognised as a charge to the Profit and Loss Account over the period of the relevant borrowing.

Interest expense is recognised on the basis of the effective interest method and is included in interest payable and similar charges.

Borrowings are classified as current liabilities unless the company has an unconditional right to defer settlement of the liability for at least twelve months after the reporting date.

Share capital

Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Equity instruments are measured at the fair value of the cash or other resources received or receivable, net of the direct costs of issuing the equity instruments. If payment is deferred and the time value of money is material, the initial measurement is on a present value basis.

3

Staff numbers

The average number of persons employed by the company (including directors) during the year, was 3 (2017 - 4).

Included within the net book value of land and buildings above is £3,163,748 (2017 - £3,010,680) in respect of freehold land and buildings.
 

Revaluation


A number of the company's freehold land and buildings were valued by the directors as at 31 March 1993 on the basis of an open market valuation for existing use. The related valuation of £400,000 was included in the financial statements at the time when the historical net book value was £44,400. This resulted in a revaluation surplus of £355,600.
Had this class of asset been measured on a historical cost basis, the carrying amount would have been £44,400 (2017 - £44,400).

Bank borrowings

The carrying amount of the loans and overdraft at the year end is £2,800,696 (2017 - £2,832,210).

The bank loan is secured by a debenture, specific charges over certain freehold properties and by personal guarantees by RG Boyce, AR Boyce and JC Boyce. Interest is charged at rates varying between base rate plus 0.9% and LIBOR plus 3.25%.

Other borrowings

Borrowings with a carrying amount of £7,380,822 (2017 - £7,085,925) is denominated in sterling with a nominal interest rate of between 0% and 2% above base.

The other borrowings do not have a set repayment date and are therefore considered to be repayable on demand, measured at amortised cost, being the transaction price less any amounts settled and any impairment losses. However, in the directors' opinion the loans will not be settled in part or in full by 31 March 2019 and the loans have therefore been recorded as due after more than one year to show a true and fair view. Part of the borrowings are interest free and others bear interest at base rate plus 2% per annum.

Included in the loans and borrowings are the following amounts due after more than five years:

Bank loans and overdrafts after five years

Bank loans repayable after five years total £839,912 (2017: £1,028,910).

Financial commitments, guarantees and contingencies

Amounts not provided for in the balance sheet

The total amount of financial commitments not included in the balance sheet is £84,501 (2017 - £14,000). The financial commitment relates to the balance outstanding on the office lease.

The total amount of contingencies not included in the balance sheet is £2,400,000 (2017 - £2,400,000). The company has provided a composite guarantee to Lloyds Bank plc in respect of the borrowings of Kentford Investments Limited to a maximum of £2,400,000 via a first legal charge over certain freehold property and an unlimited debenture dated 5 March 2009. The directors do not anticipate that any of the guarantee will be called and therefore have not made any provision at the year end.

Parent and ultimate parent undertaking

The RG Boyce Trustee Company Ltd, a company incorporated in Cyprus, in its capacity as trustee, had a controlling shareholding in the company throughout the year. However, RG Boyce had ultimate influence over the operating decisions of the company, both as chairman and in view of his connection with The RG Boyce Trustee Company Limited.

 The company's immediate parent is RG Boyce Trustee Company Limited, incorporated in Cyprus.
