Directors’ Responsibility for the Financial Statements
The directors of the Company are responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with Accounting Standards for Private Entities and the Housing Development (Control and Licensing) Act, 1966 in Malaysia. This responsibility includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with approved standards on auditing in Malaysia. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on our judgment, including the assessment of risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
In our opinion:
a) the financial statements have been properly drawn up in accordance with the provisions of the Housing Development (Control and Licensing) Act, 1966 and Private Entity Reporting Standards in Malaysia, so as to give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Company as at 31 March 2009 and of the results of the operations, the cash flows and changes in equity for the financial year ended on that date; and
b) the accounting and other records required by Housing Development (Control and Licensing) Act, 1966 to be kept have been properly kept in accordance with the provisions of the said and Act;
c) we have received satisfactory explanations and information from the officers and agents of the Company for the purpose of our audit.
