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 were prepared in accordance with section 1A Financial Reporting Standard 102 'The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland'.

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.

Going concern

The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis. The directors are satisfied that the company's shareholders will provide it with the necessary support to continue trading for the foreseeable future.

Revenue recognition

Turnover comprises the fair value of the rental income receivable from the letting of land and property. Turnover is shown net of value added tax and rebates.

Tax

Tax charges consist of current and deferred tax, measured as stated below. Tax charges are recognised in the same component of total comprehensive income as the transactions to which they relate.

Deferred tax assets are recognised in respect of losses only if it is more likely than not they will be recovered in the short to medium term. Deferred tax is recognised without discounting.

 

Bryanston (RFE) Limited

Notes to the Financial Statements for the Year Ended 30 September 2019

Investment property

Investment property is carried at fair value. Changes in fair value are recognised in profit or loss. Unrealised gains are transferred to a separate revaluation reserve to reflect that they are non-distributable.

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 receivable from tenants in respect of let land and property.

Trade debtors are measured where appropriate at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less provision for impairment.

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 where relevant subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method.

Borrowings

Interest-bearing borrowings are initially recorded at the transaction price net of transaction costs. Interest-bearing borrowings are subsequently carried at amortised cost, with interest expense recognised on the basis of the effective interest method and 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.

Derivative financial instruments and hedging

Hedging
The company has entered into interest rate swaps that are designated hedges of variable rate interest payments on bank borrowings. The swaps are measured at fair value, by reference to open market prices of comparable instruments, with the effective portion of the hedge recognised in other comprehensive income in the cash flow hedge reserve. Amounts accumulated in the cash flow hedge reserve are reclassified to profit and loss, under interest payable and similar charges, in the periods in which the hedged cash flows affect profit or loss.
