Note 7. Other Expenses





Surplus before income tax includes the following specific expenses:

Finance costs

Unwinding of discount on restoration provision liability



Rental expense relating to operating leases

Total rental expense relating to operating leases



Superannuation expense

Defined contribution superannuation expense



Accounting policy for finance costs
Finance costs attributable to qualifying assets are capitalised as part of the asset. All other finance costs are expensed in the period in which they are incurred.

Accounting policy for leases
The determination of whether an arrangement is or contains a lease is based on the substance of the arrangement and requires an assessment of whether the fulfilment of the arrangement is dependent on the use of a specific asset or assets and the arrangement conveys a right to use the asset.

Hearing Australia does not have finance leases.

Operating lease payments, net of any incentives received from the lessor, are charged to profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease.
