For 1. Manning Pavement Services (MPS) trading as Karratha Asphalt works in tandem with our related entity Karratha Earthmoving & Sand Supplies (trading name for the earthmoving business of the Darryl Corps Family Trust – have been in business for over 30 years) to provide a complete service solution to our customers. There are plant & equipment and services which are provided through these two entities. In this instance the majority of the Loan to Darryl Family Trust (KEM) is for equipment hire ($594K) for the year which was not physically paid for but recorded as loans to and from at the end of the financial year with the corresponding entry to plant hire income for MPS.
For 2. There were several bad debts written off for the year in relation to debtors/customers who have gone into administration & liquidation. As unsecured creditors, the bad debt is recognise once we have confirmation that the likelihood of recovery is very remote. We do request for personal and directors guarantee in our credit policy but recovery is often difficult given the unsecured nature of our debt. In this instance, the bad debt related to three businesses that went bad and they were:
Redline – $320,434 (director also went into bankruptcy as well)
GLH Contracting – $31,971 (carried in the books since 2013)
National Building Suppliers Group – $9,435 (January 2015)
