Whitehaven Coal Limited : Annual Report 2009
Whitehaven Coal Limited -- Annual Report 2009 39 16. NON-AUDIT SERVICES During the year Ernst & Young and KPMG, the Company's current and previous auditor respectively, have performed certain other services in addition to their statutory duties. The Board has considered the non-audit services provided during the year by the auditor and in accordance with written advice provided by resolution of the Audit and Risk Management Committee, is satisfied that the provision of those non-audit services during the year by the auditor is compatible with, and did not compromise, the auditor independence requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 for the following reasons: all non-audit services were subject to the corporate governance procedures adopted by the Company and have been reviewed by the audit committee to ensure they do not impact the integrity and objectivity of the auditor; and the non-audit services provided do not undermine the general principles relating to auditor independence as set out in APES 110 Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants, as they did not involve reviewing or auditing the auditor's own work, acting in a management or decision making capacity for the Company, acting as an advocate for the Company or jointly sharing risks and rewards. Details of the amounts paid to the auditor of the Company, Ernst & Young and KPMG, and their related practices for non-audit services provided during the year are set out below.
