NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 APRIL 2019


1. STATUTORY INFORMATION

DTE Business Advisers Limited is a private company, limited by shares, registered in England and Wales,
registration number 04202581. The registered office is The Exchange, 5 Bank Street, Bury, BL9 0DN.

2. ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of preparation
These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Financial Reporting Standard 102 "The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland" including the provisions of Section 1A "Small Entities" and the Companies Act 2006. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

The company meets its day to day working capital requirements through an overdraft facility and loans from its
shareholders. The company's forecast and projections show that the company will be able to operate within the
level of its current arrangements. The directors are in regular contact with the finance providers and have no
reason to believe that facilities will not remain available on current terms.

The directors have a reasonable expectation that the company has adequate resources to continue in operational
existence for the foreseeable future. Thus they continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in
preparing the annual financial statements.

Preparation of consolidated financial statements
The financial statements contain information about DTE Business Advisers Limited as an individual company
and do not contain consolidated financial information as the parent of a group. The company is exempt under
Section 399(2A) of the Companies Act 2006 from the requirements to prepare consolidated financial statements.

Significant judgements and estimates
In the application of the company's accounting policies, the directors are required to make estimates and
judgements. The estimates are based on historical experience and other relevant factors. Actual results may differ
from these estimates.

The estimates are continuously evaluated. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in
which the estimate is revised.

The estimates and assumptions which have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying
amount of assets and liabilities are outlined below.

Making judgement based on knowledge of the customer on the level of provision required against amounts
recoverable on contracts. Further information received after the statement of financial position date may impact
on the level of provision required.

Making judgement based on knowledge of the customer on the level of provision required for bad debts. Further
information received after the statement of financial position date may impact on the level of provision required.

Revenue
Revenue represents amounts chargeable to clients for professional services provided during the year, inclusive of
direct expenses incurred on client assignments but excluding value added tax. Turnover is recognised when a
right to consideration has been obtained through performance on each assignment. Consideration accrues as
activity progresses by reference to the value of the work performed. Turnover is not recognised where the right
to receive payment is contingent on events outside the control of the company.

Unbilled revenue is included on the statement of financial position within debtors as 'unbilled amounts for client
work'.

2. ACCOUNTING POLICIES - continued

Property, plant and equipment
Depreciation is provided at the following annual rates in order to write off each asset over its estimated useful life or, if held under a finance lease, over the lease term, whichever is the shorter.
Plant and machinery etc - 33% on reducing balance, 25% on reducing balance and 15% on reducing balance

The residual values, estimated useful lives and depreciation method of property, plant and equipment are
reviewed, and adjusted as appropriate, at each statement of financial position date.The effects of any revision are
recognised in the income statement when the change arises.

Taxation
Taxation for the year comprises current and deferred tax. Tax is recognised in the Income Statement, except to
the extent that it relates to items recognised in other comprehensive income or directly in equity.

Current or deferred taxation assets and liabilities are not discounted.

Current tax is recognised at the amount of tax payable using the tax rates and laws that have been enacted or
substantively enacted by the statement of financial position date.

Deferred tax
Deferred tax is recognised in respect of all timing differences that have originated but not reversed at the
statement of financial position date.

Timing differences arise from the inclusion of income and expenses in tax assessments in periods different from
those in which they are recognised in financial statements. Deferred tax is measured using tax rates and laws that
have been enacted or substantively enacted by the year end and that are expected to apply to the reversal of the
timing difference.

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

Hire purchase and leasing commitments
Assets obtained under hire purchase contracts or finance leases are capitalised in the statement of financial
position. Those held under hire purchase contracts are depreciated over their estimated lives. Those held under
finance leases are depreciated over their estimated useful lives or the lease term, whichever is the shorter.

The interest element of these obligations is charged to the income statement over the relevant period. The capital
element of the future payments is treated as a liability.

Rentals paid under operating leases are charged to the income statement as incurred.

Pensions
The company operates a defined contribution pension scheme. Contributions payable for the year are charged in
the income statement.

Income from fixed asset investments
Income from fixed asset investments is received in the form of dividends and is credited to the income statement
when receivable.

Fixed asset investments
Fixed asset investments in subsidiary undertakings are stated at cost, unless in the opinion of the directors there
has been a permanent diminution in value, in which case an appropriate adjustment is made.

Financial instruments
The company only enters into basic financial instruments transactions that result in the recognition of financial
assets and liabilities like trade and other accounts receivable and payable, loans from banks and other third
parties and loans to and from related parties.

Financial assets that are measured at cost and 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

being the transaction price less any amounts settled.
