Compliance Update
7 September 2016
Update no 9/16
 
1. Amendments to Appendix 4C and Appendix 5B- Quarterly Cash Flow Reports are effective now
All listed entities required to lodge Quarterly Cash Flow Reports should have received an email from ASX advising that, following a period of consultation (see Consultation Paper dated 26 February 2016), ASX has received regulatory approval to amend Appendices 4C and 5B of the Listing Rules.

The new Appendices 4C and 5B came into effect on 1 September 2016 and are effective for quarters ending on or after 30 September 2016. Accordingly, listed entities filing Appendices 4C or 5B will need to use the new form for their September 2016 quarter filings and all subsequent filings.

The new forms have been modernised to make them more user-friendly for issuers and investors and to bring them into line with each other and with current accounting standards. Editable copies of the new forms are available on the ASX Compliance downloads page at http://www.asx.com.au/regulation/compliance/compliance-downloads.htm.

If you have any queries, please contact your ASX Listings Compliance Adviser.

2. Next non-business day
ASX reminds listed entities that the next non-business day is Monday 3 October 2016, a Labour Day holiday in NSW. While this is a trading day on ASX, it is not a settlement day for ASX Settlement (CHESS) and therefore not a Business Day under the Listing Rules. ASX Market Announcements will however be open on that day. Please take this into account in planning the timetable for any corporate action that will run over a period including that date.

3. Daylight savings commencing 2 October 2016
Daylight saving commences in New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia at 2 a.m. EST on Sunday 2 October 2016, and will end at 3 a.m. on Sunday 2 April 2017. Daylight saving is not observed in Queensland, Western Australia or the Northern Territory.

As WA will be 3 hours behind Sydney time during daylight saving, ASX Market Announcements will stay open until 8.30 p.m. Sydney time (5.30 p.m. WST) starting on Monday 3 October 2016.

ASX Market Announcements will revert to its usual 7.30 pm Sydney time closing time when daylight saving has ended. A further Listed@ASX Update reminding companies of the change will be released closer to that time.

 
4. Periodic report due date reminder
Listed entities are reminded of upcoming deadlines for periodic reports:
• Statutory half year financial reports for mining exploration entities, 31 December balance date: Tuesday 13 September 2016
• Statutory audited annual accounts, 30 June balance date: Friday 30 September 2016
• Annual reports, 30 June balance date: Monday 31 October 2016
• Next quarterly reports for mining and commitments test entities: Monday 31 October 2016*

* Entities must use the amended Appendix 4C and 5B forms (see item 1 above).
