Office equipment - 33% straight line
Motor vehicles - 25% reducing balance

The company operates a defined contribution pension scheme and the pension cost charge represents the contributions payable by the company to the fund in respect of the period. The assets of the scheme are held separately from those of the company in an independently administered fund.
Deferred Taxation is provided on the liability method to take account of timing differences between treatment of certain items for accounts purposes and their treatment for tax. Tax deferred or accelerated is accounted for in respect of all material timing differences.
Property, plant and equipment acquired under finance leases or hire purchase contracts are capitalised and depreciated. Rentals payable under operating leases are charged to the statement of income and retained earnings on a sraight line basis over the period.
The following assets and liabilities are classified as financial instruments - trade debtors, trade creditors, bank loans and directors loans. Bank Loans are initially measured at the present value of future payments, discounted at the market rate of interest and subsequently at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Directors Loan (being repayable on demand). Trade debtors and trade creditors are measured at the undiscounted amount of the cash or other consideration expected to be paid or received. Financial assets that are measured at amortised cost are assessed at the end of each reporting period for objective evidence of impairment. If objective evidence of impairment is found, an impairment loss is recognised in the Statement of Income and Retained Earnings.
The director reviews the financial position of the company from the date of approval of the accounts on an ongoing basis, and concludes that the company is able to meet all its liabilities as they fall due.
