These financial statements have been prepared by management in accordance with Treasury Board accounting policies, which are based on Canadian public sector accounting standards.

Management is responsible for the integrity and objectivity of the information in these financial statements. Some of the information in the financial statements is based on management's best estimates and judgment, and gives due consideration to materiality. To fulfill its accounting and reporting responsibilities, management maintains a set of accounts that provides a centralized record of the department's financial transactions.

Management is also responsible for maintaining an effective system of internal control over financial reporting designed to provide reasonable assurance that financial information is reliable, that assets are safeguarded and that transactions are properly authorized and recorded in accordance with the Financial Administration Act and other applicable legislation, regulations, authorities and policies.

Management seeks to ensure the objectivity and integrity of data in its financial statements through careful selection, training, and development of qualified staff; through organizational arrangements that provide appropriate divisions of responsibility; through communication programs aimed at ensuring that regulations, policies, standards, and managerial authorities are understood throughout FINTRAC; and through obtaining an external audit opinion of FINTRAC’s annual financial statements which includes an assessment of the rigor of its internal controls over financial reporting.

An assessment for the year ended March 31, 2012 was completed in accordance with the Policy on Internal Control and the results and action plans are summarized in the annex.

The system of internal control over financial reporting is designed to mitigate risks to a reasonable level based on an on-going process to identify key risks, to assess effectiveness of associated key controls, and to make any necessary adjustments.

The firm of KPMG LLP has expressed an opinion on the fair presentation of the financial statements of FINTRAC which does not include an audit opinion on the annual assessment of the effectiveness of the department's internal controls over financial reporting.

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT

To the Director of the Financial Transactions and Report Analysis Centre of Canada

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of the Financial Transactions and Report Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), which comprise the statement of financial position as at March 31, 2012, the statements of operations, equity of Canada, and cash flows for the year then ended, and notes, comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. The financial statements have been prepared by management in accordance with the accounting policies generally applied by the Government of Canada for government departments and agencies as stipulated in Treasury Board accounting policies.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with the accounting policies generally applied by the Government of Canada for government departments and agencies as stipulated in Treasury Board accounting policies; this includes determining that the basis of accounting is an acceptable basis for the preparation of these financial statements in the circumstances, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors' Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about 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 the risks of material misstatement of 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 management, 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.

Opinion

In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of FINTRAC as at March 31, 2012, the net cost of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with the accounting policies generally applied by the Government of Canada for government departments and agencies as stipulated in Treasury Board accounting policies.

Basis of Accounting and Restriction on Use

Without modifying our opinion, we draw attention to Note 2 to the financial statement, which describes the basis of accounting. The financial statements are prepared for the information and use of the management of FINTRAC and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. As a result, the financial statements may not be suitable for another purpose. Our report is intended solely for the management of FINTRAC, and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, and should not be used by other parties.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Audited)
For the Year Ended March 31, 2012

1. Authority and objectives

The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) was legislated into existence in July 2000 to be Canada’s Financial Intelligence Unit. The Centre exists to assist in the detection, prevention and deterrence of money laundering and the financing of terrorist activities. FINTRAC’s ‘value-added’ financial intelligence products and compliance functions are a unique contribution to the public safety of Canadians and to the protection of the integrity of Canada’s financial system.  

FINTRAC is an independent agency that operates at arm’s length from the law enforcement agencies and other entities to which it is authorized to disclose financial intelligence. It reports to the Minister of Finance, who is in turn accountable to Parliament for the activities of the Centre. FINTRAC was established and operates within the ambit of the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA) and its Regulations.

To effectively pursue its mandate, FINTRAC aims to achieve the following strategic outcome: FINTRAC’s detection and deterrence of money laundering and terrorist financing contributes to the public safety of Canadians and helps protect the integrity of Canada’s financial system.

2. Summary of significant accounting policies

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Treasury Board accounting policies stated below, which are based on Canadian public sector accounting standards. The presentation and results using the stated accounting policies do not result in any significant differences from Canadian generally accepted accounting principles.

Significant accounting policies are as follows:

(a) Parliamentary authorities

FINTRAC is financed by the Government of Canada (“Government”) through Parliamentary authorities. Financial reporting of authorities provided to FINTRAC do not parallel financial reporting according to generally accepted accounting principles since authorities are primarily based on cash flow requirements. Consequently, items recognized in the Statement of Operations and Departmental Net Financial Position and in the Statement of Financial Position are not necessarily the same as those provided through authorities from Parliament. Note 3 provides a reconciliation between the bases of reporting.

(b) Net cash provided by government

FINTRAC operates within the Consolidated Revenue Fund (“CRF”), which is administered by the Receiver General for Canada. All cash received by FINTRAC is deposited to the CRF and all cash disbursements made by FINTRAC are paid from the CRF. The net cash provided by Government is the difference between all cash receipts and all cash disbursements including transactions between departments of the Government.

(c) Amounts due from CRF

Amounts due from the CRF are the result of timing differences at year-end between when a transaction affects authorities and when it is processed through the CRF. Amounts due from the CRF represent the net amount of cash that the FINTRAC is entitled to draw from the CRF without further appropriations to discharge its liabilities.

(d) Revenues

(e) Expenses

Expenses are recorded on the accrual basis:

(f) Employee future benefits

(g) Accounts receivables and advances

Accounts and loans receivables are stated at the lower of cost and net recoverable value. A valuation allowance is recorded for receivables where recovery is considered uncertain.

(h) Contingent liabilities

Contingent liabilities are potential liabilities which may become actual liabilities when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. To the extent that the future event is likely to occur or fail to occur, and a reasonable estimate of the loss can be made, an estimated liability is accrued and an expense recorded. If the likelihood is not determinable or an amount cannot be reasonably estimated, the contingency is disclosed in the notes to the financial statements.

(i) Tangible capital assets

All tangible capital assets and leasehold improvements having an initial cost of $5,000 or more are recorded at their acquisition cost. FINTRAC does not capitalize intangibles, works of art and historical treasures that have cultural, aesthetic or historical value, assets located on Indian Reserves and museum collections.

Amortization of tangible capital assets is done on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of the asset as follows:

Asset Class Amortization Period
Machinery and equipment 5 years
Informatics Hardware 5 years
Informatics software 5 years
Other equipment, including furniture 5 to 10 years
Leasehold Improvements Lesser of remaining lease term and 10 years

(j) Measurement uncertainty

The preparation of these financial statements, in accordance with Canadian public sector accounting standards, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and expenses reported in the financial statements. At the time of preparation of these statements, management believes the estimates and assumptions to be reasonable. The most significant items where estimates are used are contingent liabilities, the liability for employee severance benefits, the useful life of tangible capital assets, and the cost of transferred operations. Actual results could significantly differ from those estimated. Management's estimates are reviewed periodically and, as adjustments become necessary, they are recorded in the financial statements in the year they become known.

3. Parliamentary authorities

FINTRAC receives most of its funding through annual Parliamentary authorities. Items recognized in the Statement of Operations and Departmental Net Financial Position and the Statement of Financial Position in one year may be funded through parliamentary authorities in prior, current or future years. Accordingly, FINTRAC has different net results of operations for the year on a government funding basis than on an accrual accounting basis. The differences are reconciled in the following tables:

Total $7,528,923 $4,369,235

7. Employee future benefits

(a) Pension benefits

FINTRAC's employees participate in the Public Service Pension Plan, which is sponsored and administered by the Government. Pension benefits accrue up to a maximum period of 35 years at a rate of 2 percent per year of pensionable service, times the average of the best five consecutive years of earnings. The benefits are integrated with Canada/Québec Pension Plans benefits and they are indexed to inflation.

Both the employees and FINTRAC contribute to the cost of the Plan. The 2011-12 expense amounts to $6,062,129 ($4,622,943 in 2010-11), which represents approximately 1.8 times (1.9 times in 2010-11) the contributions by employees.

The Department's responsibility with regard to the Plan is limited to its contributions. Actuarial surpluses or deficiencies are recognized in the financial statements of the Government of Canada, as the Plan's sponsor.

(b) Severance benefits

FINTRAC provides severance benefits to its employees based on eligibility, years of service and salary at termination of employment. These severance benefits are not pre-funded. Benefits will be paid from future authorities. Information about the severance benefits, measured as at March 31, is as follows:

As part of collective agreement negotiations with certain employee groups, and changes to conditions of employment for executives and certain non-represented employees, the accumulation of severance benefits under the employee severance pay program ceased for these employees commencing in 2012. Employees subject to these changes have been given the option to be immediately paid the full or partial value of benefits earned to date or collect the full or remaining value of benefits on termination from the public service. These changes have been reflected in the calculation of the outstanding severance benefit obligation.

In addition, FINTRAC has an agreement with Shared Services Canada (SSC) related to the provision of finance and administration services. During the year, FINTRAC received common services which were obtained without charge from other Government departments as disclosed below.

(a)  Common services provided without charge by other government departments

During the year FINTRAC received without charge from certain common service organizations, related to legal services, information technology services, and the employer's contribution to the health and dental insurance plans.

b) Current year statement of operations has been separated between continuing and transferred operations. The comparative information for the year ended March 31, 2011 has not been adjusted for transferred activities as the amounts could not be reliable determined and verified.

12. Planned results

Planned results have been provided for comparison purposes and are not audited. The planned results amounts in the Statement of Operations are the amounts reported in the future-oriented financial statements included in the 2011-12 Report on Plans and Priorities; therefore, planned expenses by program activity are not available.

13. Comparative information

Comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the current year's presentation. These include:

14. Accounting changes

During 2011, amendments were made to Treasury Board Accounting Standards 1.2 – Departmental and Agency Financial Statements to improve financial reporting by government departments and agencies. The amendments are effective for financial years ending March 31, 2012, and later. The significant changes to the Department’s financial statements are described below. These changes have been applied retroactively, and comparative information for 2010-11 has been restated.

Net debt, (calculated as liabilities less financial assets) is now presented in the Statement of Financial Position. Accompanying this change, FINTRAC now presents a statement of Change in Net Debt and no longer presents a Statement of Equity.

Revenue and related accounts receivable are now presented net of non-respendable amounts in the Statement of Operations and Departmental Net Financial Position and Statement of Financial Position. The effect of this change was to increase the net cost of operations after government funding and transfers by $90,561 for 2012 ($91,786 for 2011) and decrease total financial assets by $151,548 for 2012 ($168,806 for 2011).

Government funding and transfers, as well as the credit related to services provided without charge by other government departments are now recognized in the Statement of Operations and Departmental Net Financial Position below “Net cost of operations before government funding and transfers.” In previous years, FINTRAC recognized these transactions directly in the Statement of Equity of Canada. The effect of this change was to decrease the net cost of operations after government funding and transfers by $57,953,576 for 2012 ($54,389,944 for 2011).
