Promotional expenses were up Investment in payment capabilities delivered improved speed and transparency for our clients and our strong focus on risk management resulted in a In 1H22 OFX made an investment in TreasurUp, expanding risk capabilities in the Corporate segment and in 2H22 we announced the acquisition of Firma which is perfectly aligned to our strategy in the Corporate segment and the North American region.
This is what we want the OFX brand to capture in the next five years. Lastly, to successfully execute our strategy, we align our investments with six key strategic pillars. This list does not cover every risk that may be associated with the Group, and the occurrence or consequences of some of the risks described are partially or completely outside the control of the Group, its Directors and senior management.
There is also no guarantee or assurance that the risks will not change or that other risks will not emerge. Regulatory compliance — The international payments market is highly regulated. There is a risk that such regulations could also make it uneconomical for the Group to continue to operate in places where it currently does business. There is also a risk that the Group is required to pay significant penalties if it fails to maintain or follow adequate procedures in relation to on-boarding of clients or to detect and prevent money laundering, financing of terrorism, breaches anti-bribery laws or contravenes sanctions, as have been imposed on other companies by governmental authorities.
In addition, there is a risk that evidence of a serious failure by the Group to comply with laws may cause one or more of the counterparty banks, partnerships or affiliates to cease business with the Group. The Group has a range of system and process controls in place to mitigate this risk and invests significant resources in compliance. All employees undertake compulsory compliance training on a regular basis. There is a risk that these systems may be adversely affected by events including damage, equipment faults, power failure, computer viruses, misuse by employees or contractors or external malicious interventions such as hacking, fire, natural disasters or weather interventions.
The Group maintains disaster recovery plans and controls to mitigate this risk. The Group is subject to privacy laws in Australia and other jurisdictions in which it conducts its business. In each of the relevant jurisdictions, these laws generally regulate the collection, use and processing of personal information. Such laws affect the way the Group can collect, use, analyse, transfer and share personal information that is central to many of the services the Group provides. Any actual or perceived failure by the Group to comply with relevant privacy laws and regulations may result in the imposition of fines, investigations, enforceable undertakings or other penalties, client losses, a reduction in existing services, and limitations on the development of technology and services making use of such data.
The Group has a range of system and process controls in place to mitigate this risk pursuant to a Board approved Cyber Strategy. Employees undertake compulsory privacy and cyber security awareness training. There is a risk that one or more of these banks may cease to deal with the Group.
The Group maintains a panel of banking counterparties and actively manages its relationships with these counterparties. In these instances, the Group may be required to take steps to recover the funds involved and, in certain circumstances, be liable for amounts paid that were in not in accordance with customer instructions.
The Group has a range of system and process controls in place to mitigate this risk. The Group has a range of fraud prevention controls in place to mitigate this risk. In addition, as the Group reports in Australian Dollars, a strengthening of the Australian Dollar against other currencies will also have a negative impact on the reported earnings of the Group that relate to its income earned in geographies outside Australia which may increase over time, potentially substantially.
Overall exposure of the Group is managed within limits set by the Board. There is a risk that a client or counterparty fails to make payment upon settlement of these contracts. The Group mitigates against this risk by retaining the discretion to require that an advance payment is made; however, the Group remains exposed to the mark-to-market value of the transactions. The major existing competitors of the Group include banks, money transfer organisations and other specialist providers.
New competitors, services and business models which compete with the Group are likely to arise in the future. The Group regularly reviews its market position and competitiveness as part of its strategic and business planning process. There is a risk that the Group may infringe the IP rights of third parties.
Third parties may enforce their IP rights and prevent the Group from using the IP, which may adversely impact the business and operations of the Group, and damage the reputation of the Group. To mitigate against this risk the Group actively manages its trademarks and obtains licences in respect of third party IP rights used by the business.
This may impact on the future growth and profitability of the Group. The Group actively maintains its relationships with regulators, banks, partners and other stakeholders to mitigate against this risk. Events subsequent to balance date On 2 May , the Group largely completed its acquisition of Canadian corporate foreign exchange business, Firma.
Firma is a global payments and foreign exchange service provider based in Edmonton, Canada, with specialist FX products and services for Corporate clients. We have a strong balance sheet, superior service delivery, an experienced and ambitious team and a clear mandate from our Board and our shareholders to grow sustainably.

Insurance and indemnification of Directors and Officers The Directors of the Company and such other officers as the Directors determine are entitled to receive the benefit of an indemnity contained in the Constitution of the Company, to the extent allowed by the Corporations Act Cth.
The Company has entered into a standard form deed of indemnity, insurance and access with the Directors, the Company and Secretary of the Company and with Directors and Officers of each Group entity against liabilities they may incur in the performance of their duties as Directors of the Company, to the extent permitted by the Corporations Act Cth. The indemnity operates only to the extent that the loss or liability is not covered by insurance. During the year the Company has paid premiums in respect of contracts insuring the Directors and Officers of the Company and each other Group entity against liability incurred in that capacity to the extent allowed by the Corporations Act Cth.
The terms of the policies prohibit disclosure of the details of the liability and the premium paid. No officers are former auditors No officer of the Consolidated Entity has been a partner of an audit firm or a Director of an audit company that is the auditor of the Company and the Consolidated Entity for the financial year. Details of the amounts paid or payable to KPMG for audit and non-audit services provided during the year are set out in Note 25 to the Financial Statements.
Total non-audit remuneration paid to KPMG is summarised below. FY22 in review OFX has had a very strong year in which financial and operating targets have been either met or exceeded. The Global Executive Team has done an outstanding job adapting our strategy to optimise market opportunities, including acquisitions, and effectively managing the continuing impacts of COVID on our business operations and our people.
Compliance, risk and fraud controls have also been exceedingly well managed in an environment where these risks have only continued to increase. It provides for consistency of approach whilst still providing an avenue for applying malus and clawback provisions to unvested equity, should this ever be warranted. Further details of these remuneration changes are contained in the report. Our people have worked incredibly hard over the course of the year to serve our clients and grow the business and the remuneration outcomes reflect their success in growing a more valuable Company.
Key Management Personnel The Remuneration Report outlines the remuneration arrangements in place for the Key Management Personnel KMP of the Group, which comprises all Directors Executive and Non-Executive and those Executives who have authority and responsibility for planning, directing and controlling the activities of the Group. Remuneration framework and link to business strategy 2. Total remuneration correlates to performance. The following Figure 2 which is not to scale sets out the remuneration structure and delivery timing for Executive KMP.
Statutory disclosures Table 4 details the remuneration paid to Executives KMP and has been prepared in accordance with the accounting standards. Table 4 Short-term bene? There are per formance conditions that reflect specific outcomes relating to a transaction attached to the vesting. Performance and remuneration outcomes for FY22 5.
A comprehensive market review has been conducted for each Executive KMP as part of the FY22 remuneration review cycle which, if applicable, will be effective in FY Mandatory deferral of STI award into performance rights acting as both a retention mechanism and providing the opportunity for malus or clawback if this is ever warranted.
Figure 4 STI outcomes are determined as shown in Figure 4. Recommendations take into account the STI pool funding percentage refer Table 7 and the performance of the CEO and his direct reports against individual and business performance goals refer Table 6 for outcomes in respect of the Executive KMP as well as the behaviour demonstrated by the CEO and his direct reports in their role consistent with the Company values.
Individual goals for the CEO and his direct reports align to the financial and strategic objectives used to determine STI pool funding. Not all amounts have been prepared in accordance with accounting standards and this information differs from the statutory remuneration table in Section 4 which shows the expense for the vested and unvested awards in accordance with accounting standards. The below figures are unaudited. These shares are subject to a holding lock under which they cannot be traded for 12 months from vesting date.
The value is derived as the number of vested shares multiplied by the share price on vesting date. This award vested 12 months from the date of the award, during F Y The number of performance rights that each Executive KMP received was determined by dividing the grant value by a day V WAP following the release of full-year results. Australian Accounting Standards require the ESP awards be treated as options for accounting purposes due to the structure of the plan.
There were no awards granted under the ESP in the period. The amount of the loan is equal to the issue price multiplied by the total number of shares issued. However, the notional value of this interest is taken into account in the overall structure of the program. The participant is obliged to pay a portion of the post-tax value of any dividends received during the loan term toward repayment of the loan amount.
To access the shares, participants must repay their loan in full. Shares remain restricted and can only be sold for the purposes of repaying the loan until the loan is repaid, and it is important that the loan obligation is always taken into account alongside the face value of shares under the ESP awards. In particular, with the intent of ensuring that OFX has competitive remuneration in place for the Executive team and that remuneration is aligned to market practice.
The performance measures for Stretch should be reflective of true outperformance resulting from exceptional discretionary effort that results in shareholder value creation. This increases the deferral period as well as ensures global consistency across all participants subject to deferral of STI. Minimum shareholding requirement With the increase to the variable reward components as well as the STI and LTI opportunity for Executives, the Board approved the introduction of a minimum shareholding requirement for Executives from FY23 in order to further align the interests of the Executives with those of shareholders.
Board discretion applies to the treatment of any unvested LTI. Remuneration Governance 9. The People, Culture and Remuneration Committee follows protocols around the engagement and use of external remuneration consultants to ensure compliance with relevant legislation as it relates to Executive remuneration. During the financial year, Godfrey Remuneration Group was engaged to provide advice on Executive remuneration relating to STI and LTI and to recommend any changes to the framework that would be valued by Executives and supported by shareholders.
The Board is satisfied that the recommendations received from the remuneration consultants were free from undue influence from the KMP to whom the recommendations relate and in accordance with section 9B of the Corporations Act Cth. In general, all ESP shares are forfeited and surrendered in full settlement of the loan if a participant ceases employment prior to the end of the performance period.
Malus refers to the exercise of downward discretion. The Board has not encountered circumstances in this or prior periods that have required the application of the clawback provisions. If a change of control occurs prior to the vesting of STI or LTI that is subject to performance hurdles, the Board has discretion to determine that some or all of the unvested shares or performance rights will vest. In exercising this discretion, the Board may have regard to any matter the Board considers relevant, including the extent to which the vesting conditions have been satisfied or estimated to have been satisfied at the time the change of control occurs or the proportion of the performance period during which the vesting conditions are tested that has passed at the time the change of control occurs.
The minimum shareholding requirement seeks to align the interests of the Board and shareholders with a minimum shareholding requirement for Non-Executive Directors. For the purposes of calculating the minimum holding, this does not include any higher fee for acting as Chair or for membership of any Board Committees. The minimum holding must be reached within three years of appointment. At the date of this Remuneration Report, all Non-Executive Directors either met the minimum requirement or were on track to meet it within the required timeframe.
All employees are prohibited from dealing in OFX securities during a Closed Period which precedes the release of the half-year and full-year results and the annual meeting. The Policy prohibits employees who participate in any equity-based plan from entering into any transaction in relation to unvested securities which would have the effect of limiting the economic risk of an unvested security.
Non-Executive Director remuneration Non-Executive Director fees will be reviewed from time to time and they may seek the advice of external remuneration advisors for this purpose. To preserve independence, Non-Executive Directors do not receive any equity as part of their remuneration and do not receive any performance-related compensation.
Non-Executive Directors receive superannuation contributions where required by Superannuation Guarantee legislation. For each committee other than the Nomination Committee. Outlook The Group will continue to review and adjust its reward mechanisms annually, as required, to ensure that its long-term growth aspirations are met.

A list of controlled entities at year end is contained in Note The determination of control is based on current facts and circumstances and is continuously assessed. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of the impairment of the asset transferred. Accounting policies of subsidiaries have been changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.
Investments in subsidiaries are accounted for at cost in the separate financial statements of OzForex Limited the intermediate holding company in accordance with A ASB Separate Financial Statements.

This decision discusses whether configuration or customisation expenditure relating to Software- as-a-Service SaaS arrangements can be recognised as an intangible asset and if not, over what time period the expenditure is expensed. As such, IFRIC has concluded that SaaS arrangements do not provide an entity with an intangible asset at the commencement of a contract.
As a result of the IFRIC decision, costs previously capitalised as an intangible asset are now expensed in the period in which the costs are incurred. Costs incurred for the development of software code that enhances or modifies or creates additional capability to existing systems and meets the definition of and recognition criteria for an intangible asset are recognised as intangible assets, as set out in Note Historical financial information has been restated to account for the impact of the change in accounting policy in relation to SaaS arrangements.

New standards and interpretations not yet adopted Certain new accounting standards and interpretations have been published that are not mandatory for 31 March and have not been early adopted by the Group. Segment Information 1 The operating segments presented below reflect how senior management and the Board of Directors the chief operating decision makers allocate resources to the segments and review their performance.
The chief operating decision makers examine performance from a geographic perspective and by client market segment. These regions have been identified as reportable segments. Each region provides International payment services providing bank to bank currency transfers servicing businesses and consumers and international payment solutions which provides strategic partners with a package which includes: OFX IT platform, client service, compliance, banking relationships and payment capabilities.
Segments are managed on an underlying basis. Net Operating Income Fee and Trading Income Fee and trading income consists of the realised foreign currency transaction margins and fees, as well as changes in exchange rates between the time a client rate is agreed and a subsequent hedge transaction is entered into by the Group. Fee and trading income is presented inclusive of realised and unrealised income earned from the sale of foreign currency contracts to clients.
Revenue from contracts with customers is recognised upon settlement of foreign currency payments on behalf of customers in the amount that reflects the agreed foreign exchange margin and fee for the service. Where the Group enters into contracts for forward delivery with its customers, the Group also enters into separate forward contracts with its banking counterparties in hedge transactions.
These are recognised on the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position and measured at fair value through profit and loss. Fee and Commission Expense Fee and commission expenses are transactional banking fees and commissions paid to strategic and referral partners. Interest Income Interest income is recognised using the effective interest rate method, which spreads fees and costs associated with an interest bearing receivable across its life.
Changes in deferred tax assets and liabilities are due to temporary timing differences and unused tax losses. If required, provisions are established for the amounts expected to be paid to the tax authorities. Deferred income tax is provided in full, using the liability method at the tax rates expected to apply when the assets are recovered or the liabilities are settled.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities arise on temporary differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts. In addition, deferred tax assets may be recognised due to unused tax losses. Amounts are only recognised to the extent it is probable future taxable amounts will be available to use those temporary differences or tax losses.
Current and deferred taxes attributable to amounts recognised directly in equity are also recognised directly in equity. Where there is uncertainty over income tax treatments the recognition and measurement of current or deferred tax assets or liabilities is determined applying Interpretation 23 — Uncertainty Over Income Tax Treatments.
The Group believes its accruals for tax liabilities are adequate for all open tax years based on its assessment, including interpretations of income tax treatments and prior experience. Tax Consolidation The tax consolidation legislation was adopted by the Group as of 15 October As a consequence, OzForex Limited and its wholly owned Australian controlled entities are taxed as a single entity.
OB income includes revenue earned on foreign exchange transactions with offshore counterparties, excluding those with any AUD component. This will cease to apply from the income year. Earnings per Share 1 Earnings per share Basic earnings per share shows the profit attributable to each ordinary share.
It is calculated as the net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in each year. Diluted earnings per share shows the profit attributable to each ordinary share if all the dilutive potential ordinary shares had been ordinary shares.
There are no discontinued operations of the Group. Refer to Note Cash held for subsequent settlement of client liabilities represents transactions in progress where amounts have been received by the Group but the corresponding payment has not yet occurred. They are unsecured and short-term in nature and are recognised initially at their fair value. Client liabilities are initially measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method and are shown in cash net of client receivables which are recognised in other receivables refer to Note 9.
Deposits due from financial institutions are primarily short-term deposits with an original maturity of greater than three months, but less than 12 months, are accounted for at the gross value of the outstanding balance and are held at amortised cost. Other debtors include rental deposits, interest receivable and a convertible loan issued to a joint venture, the investment in which is detailed at Note Client receivables include amounts settled on behalf of customers of the Group, which are yet to be received.
All receivables are recognised at amortised cost, less any impairment. Interest is recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income using the effective interest method. Derivative Financial Instruments Derivative instruments entered into by the Group include forward foreign exchange contracts. Derivatives are recognised at trade date and are initially and subsequently measured at fair value through profit or loss.
Fair Values of Financial Assets and Liabilities OFX Group has categorised its financial instruments that are either measured in the Statement of Financial Position at fair value or of which the fair value is disclosed, into a three-level hierarchy based on the priority of the inputs to the valuation.
Cash and cash equivalents, deposits due from financial institutions, other receivables, client liabilities, other creditors and accruals are excluded from the fair value hierarchy as these instruments are held at amortised cost. Their fair value approximates the carrying value as they are short-term in nature. Level Instruments Valuation process Level 1 — Traded in active markets and fair value is based on recent unadjusted quoted prices.
None — the Group does not hold any of these instruments. Not applicable. Level 2 — Not actively traded and fair value is based on valuation techniques which maximise the use of observable market prices. Over-the-counter derivatives. Forward foreign exchange contract valuations are based on observable spot exchange rates and the yield curves of the respective currencies.
Level 3 — Not actively traded and fair value is based on at least one input which is not observable in the market due to illiquidity or complexity. Financial Risk Management Financial risk management The Group is exposed to the following risks, and manages this in the following ways: Type of risk How the risk is managed Market risk — Market risk is comprised of both foreign currency risk and interest rate risk.
Foreign currency risk — Arises from exposure to changes in foreign exchange rates between the time of agreeing rates with a client and either a corresponding hedge being taken out with a counterparty or an international payment settlement. Settlement typically occurs between 12 to 24 hours after the deal is entered into or up to 24 months later for forward contracts with clients.
The Group is also exposed to the interest rate risk embedded in forward contracts offered to its clients to lock in exchange rates up to 24 months in advance. To manage the movement in foreign exchange rates, the Group aggregates transactions and nets out buy transactions against sell transactions. The Group then enters into forward foreign exchange hedging contracts with counterparty banks once exposure to a single currency reaches or exceeds a defined threshold.
Interest rate risk — Exposure to non-traded interest rate risk results from cash and term deposits held in different currencies. Settlement of client liabilities between 12 and 24 hours of receipt of client cash results in low exposure to non-traded interest rate risk. Credit risk — The risk that creditors clients and financial institutions will not make payments on their receivables and derivatives respectively, when they fall due.
The Group typically does not pay out client deals until associated funds have been received. In exceptional circumstances, senior management have the discretion to authorise same-day payments, which can result in funds being paid prior to clearance of customer funds. These transactions would only be approved for clients with a low risk of default and are pro-actively monitored to ensure timely settlement. For forward deals part payments are required to be made by clients.
Active monitoring of client balances ensures that adequate collateral is held. The Group sets credit limits and obtains collateral with well-rated banking counterparties as security where appropriate.
Annual Report OFX Group Limited 97 Notes to the financial statements for the year ended 31 March Type of risk How the risk is managed Liquidity risk — The risk that the Group is unable to meet the obligations of its financial liabilities when they are due. Surplus cash is maintained in highly liquid instruments. Continuous review of currency requirements in operating jurisdictions. Active maintenance of cash balances in currencies and geographical locations necessary to fund these requirements.
Risk is managed on a globally consolidated basis for the Group. Risks in subsidiaries are subject to the same risk acceptance policies as the Company. The subsidiaries of the Group Note 22 typically enter into transactions and recognise assets and liabilities that are denominated in their functional currency.
The impact of a negative movement is the inverse. This is equal to the carrying amount of each class of financial assets in the table below. The Group uses internal credit ratings to manage the credit quality of its financial assets.
There are no balances that are past due or impaired as at 31 March nil. Individual customer risk limits are set based on internal approvals in accordance with delegated authority limits set by the Board. The compliance with credit limits by credit approved customers is regularly monitored by line credit management.
Client receivables aged more than 90 days past due are fully provided for unless deemed otherwise appropriate based on expectation of recoverability. The Group applies historical lifetime past due information to provide for expected credit losses prescribed by A ASB 9, which permits the use of past due information to determine the lifetime expected loss provision for all client receivables arising from a financial instrument.
The loss allowance provision as at 31 March and was determined as set out below, which incorporates past experience and forward-looking information about the client, including the likelihood of recovery. Derivatives are included in the less than three months column at their fair value, as they are frequently settled in the short term. Liquidity risk on these items is not managed on the basis of contractual maturity, since they are not held for settlement according to such maturity and will frequently be settled in the short term at fair value.
Derivatives designated in a hedging relationship are included according to their contractual maturity. The classification depends on the purpose for which the financial assets were acquired, which is determined at initial recognition based upon the business model of the Group. These include client receivables and bank term deposits.
Bank term deposits are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. They are financial assets at amortised cost. Refer to Note 9 for details relating to client receivables. Instruments are initially recognised at fair value on the date a derivative contract is entered into and are subsequently remeasured to their fair value at the end of each reporting period.
The full fair value of hedging derivatives is classified as an asset or liability. At inception of the hedge relationship, the Group documents the economic relationship between hedging instruments and hedged items including whether changes in the cash flows of the hedging instruments are expected to offset changes in the cash flows of hedged items.
The Group documents its risk management objective and strategy for undertaking its hedge transactions. Hedges of net investments in foreign operations and cash flow hedges are accounted for by recognising any gain or loss on the hedging instrument relating to the effective portion of the hedge in other comprehensive income and accumulated in reserves in equity. The Group designates only the change in fair value of the spot element of forward exchange contracts as the hedging instrument in cash flow hedging relationships.
The change in fair value of the forward element of forward exchange contracts forward points is separately accounted for as a cost of hedging and recognised in a costs of hedging reserve within equity. When the hedged forecast transaction subsequently results in the recognition of a non-financial item, the amount accumulated in the hedging reserve and the cost of hedging reserve is included directly in the initial cost of the non-financial item when it is recognised.
Gains and losses accumulated in equity are reclassified to profit or loss when the foreign operation is partially disposed of or sold. Property, Plant and Equipment Property, plant and equipment is measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. Intangible Assets 1 Intangibles are carried at cost at the date of acquisition less accumulated amortisation and impairment losses.
Costs directly incurred in acquiring and developing certain software are capitalised where they meet the criteria for capitalisation and amortised on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of three to five years. Costs incurred on research related costs or software maintenance are expensed as incurred. The Short-Term Incentive Plan is accrued as a liability and expensed over the annual service period until it is paid. When the long service leave is not expected to be settled within 12 months of year end, the liabilities are measured as the present value of expected future payments using the projected unit credit method.
Leasehold makegood provision The Group holds a provision for makegood costs anticipated to be incurred in respect of office leases in Australia, London, Canada and Hong Kong. The provision is being accrued on a straight-line basis over the lease terms. Leases Under A ASB 16, leases are recognised as a right-of-use asset and a corresponding liability at the date at which the leased asset is available for use by the Group. Each lease payment is allocated between the liability and finance cost.
The finance cost is charged to profit or loss over the lease period so as to produce a constant periodic rate of interest on the remaining balance of the liability for each period. The Group leases various offices. Rental contracts are typically made for fixed periods of three to 10 years but may have extension options. Lease terms are negotiated on an individual basis and contain a wide range of different terms and conditions.
The lease agreements do not impose any covenants, but leased assets may not be used as security for borrowing purposes. Assets and liabilities arising from a lease are initially measured on a present value basis. The lease payments are discounted using the interest rate implicit in the lease. To determine the incremental borrowing rate and in the absence of third-party borrowings, the Group uses a build-up approach that starts with a risk-free interest rate adjusted for credit risk for leases held by the Group, and makes adjustments specific to the lease, e.
The extensions are exercisable only by the Group and not by the respective lessor. In determining the lease term, which forms part of the initial measurement of the right-of-use asset and lease liability, management considers all facts and circumstances that create an economic incentive to exercise an extension option.
Extension options are only included in the lease term if the lease is reasonably certain to be extended. Subsequent to initial measurement, the lease liability is reduced for payments made and increased for interest incurred. The liability is remeasured to reflect any reassessment or modification, or if there are changes to in-substance fixed payments.
When the lease liability is remeasured, a corresponding adjustment is made to the value of the right-of-use asset. Payments associated with short-term leases and leases of low-value assets are recognised on a straight-line basis as an expense in profit or loss. Short-term leases are leases with a lease term of 12 months or less.
Low-value assets comprise IT equipment and small items of office furniture. The Group has continued to meet its internal and externally imposed capital requirements this year and no breaches have occurred. Note Ordinary Share Capital Ordinary shares are classified as equity and measured based on the proceeds from issuing the shares less the directly attributable incremental costs, net of tax. There are ,, fully paid ordinary shares ,, Ordinary shares entitle the holder to vote and to receive dividends and the proceeds of the Company if it is liquidated in proportion to the number of shares held.
There are 5,, 5,, restricted ordinary shares of which , are unallocated and 4,, are issued to KMP and executives in connection with the Executive Share Plan. Refer to Note 24 for further information. The buyback commenced on 7 June A total of 1,, ordinary shares were bought back and subsequently cancelled in the current period.
On the announcement of the Firma acquisition on 20 December , the share buyback was suspended. Dividends Dividends are recognised as a liability and a reduction to retained earnings when declared. There were no dividends paid in the period the interim dividend paid was not franked. TreasurUp is a joint venture in which the Group has joint control and a TreasurUp is a treasury management software company, whose principal place of business is The Netherlands, which will allow the Group to provide automated hedging and risk management solutions for small and medium size corporates to manage their foreign exchange risk.
TreasurUp is not publicly listed. TreasurUp is structured as a separate vehicle and the Group has a residual interest in the net assets of TreasurUp. Accordingly, the Group has classified its interest in TreasurUp as a joint venture. No expense has been recognised in the current year for bad or doubtful debts in respect of this balance owed. A joint venture is an arrangement in which the Group has joint control over the key financial and operating policies and has rights to the net assets of the arrangement, rather than rights to its assets and obligations for its liabilities.
Interests in the joint venture are accounted for using the equity method. In this instance we designed new shift times that allowed applicants to work 4 ten-hour days, rather than 5 eight-hour days, and enjoy a three day weekend. The outcome — Jeff filled all of his vacancies within a fortnight. Time is now a valuable commodity for employees and consequently for employers seeking the best people.
Despite technological improvements, work hours are escalating in many developed countries, so flexibility in scheduling time is becoming more and more sought after. Many people are prepared to take lower salaries as a trade-off. Take the Marriott Hotel group who was looking for staff for its new hotel in Hong Kong. The company discovered a six day work-week was standard there, so instead implemented a five day work-week. With this point of difference, they filled all their positions with employees of choice.
My local bus company was also having difficulty hiring drivers. After focussing on the needs of their target employees, the organisation created a new shift time from 9. Time can also be linked to salary packaging. St George Bank identified that many of their prospective employees wanted time to pursue other interests, without sacrificing their career. The bank introduced a policy that let employees work four years and take a fifth year off, fully paid.
The icing on the cake was that many employees locked in for five years, reducing staff turnover as well.
