Tier 4 example performance reports

On this page, you'll find Tier 4 example performance reports to help you prepare your own. Some of the examples were completed in 2016, soon after the new reporting standards were implemented. Therefore, some may not include comparative information to their previous financial year. To comply with the financial reporting standards, your performance report must include comparative information to your previous financial year, also called the ‘Last Year’ column in the template.

Example 2: Miramar and Maupuia Community Trust

The Miramar and Maupuia Community Trust operate a community facility. The majority of their money comes from providing goods and services. We especially liked how they expressed their purpose and showed understanding of why they carry out the specific activities that they do. They have reported under Tier 4 and have kept their Statement of Receipts and Payments simple and straightforward by following the minimum categories.

Example 3: Karangahape Marae Trust

The Karangahape Marae Trust is responsible for the maintenance and stewardship (Kaitiakitanga) of the Marae and assist students in environmental studies to help further this role. We thought this was a good example of how to report the activities that many Marae may have, and also demonstrates the links between their activities and objectives well. They have reported under Tier 4.

Example 4: Oxford Community Families Trust

Oxford Community Families Trust is a charity that provides programmes to mothers and youth teaching crafts and music, as well as providing general support. In preparing their Statement of Receipts and Payments they have taken advantage of the rule that for the first year of reporting no comparative figures are required. We also like how they have included extra notes 5 and 7 to provide additional context to the reader.
