Note 24: Contingent Liabilities
University Contingent Liabilities
A guarantee has been given to the Bank of New Zealand for an overdraft facility of $48,000 (2007 - $48,000) on a continuing basis to the Campus Creche Trust.
The University routinely monitors the financial performance of Campus Creche Trust.
The likelihood of the guarantee being called upon is estimated to be very low.
The University is involved in personal grievance claims taken against it by staff members. The liability the University may incur is estimated at $20,000 (2007 - $10,000).
There are also potential grievance claims that can't be quantified.
There are no other known contingent liabilities.
