CHURCHDOWN SCOUT GROUP

INDEPENDENT EXAMINERS REPORT TO THE TRUSTEES OFTHECHURCHDOWN SCOUT GROUP

 

I report  on the accounts  of the Group for the year ended  31st March  2017 which are set out on pages 4 to 5.

Respective  responsibilities of trustees and examiner

 

The charity’s trustees are responsible for the preparation of the accounts. The  charity’s  trustees consider that an audit is not required for this year under Section 144(2) of the Charities Act 2011 (the 2011 Act) and that an independent  examination is needed.

Basis of independent  examiner’s report

 

 

My examination was carried out in accordance with the General Directions given by the Charity Commission. An examination includes a review of the accounting records kept by the charity and a comparison of the accounts presented with those records . It also  includes  consideration  of  any unusual items or disclosures in the accounts and seeking explanations from  you  as  trustees concerning any such matters. The procedures  undertaken  do not provide  all the evidence  that  would be required in an audit and consequently no opinion is given as to whether  the accounts  present  a  ‘true and fair  view’  and the report  is limited to those matters  set out in the statement below.

Independent  Examiner’s statement

 

In connection with my examination, no matter has come to my attention:

  • which gives me reasonable cause  to believe  that in any material respect the requirements

    • to keep accounting records in accordance with section 130 of the 2011 Act; and

    • to prepare accounts which accord with the accounting records and comply  with  the accounting requirements of the 2011  Act;

  • to which, in my opinion, attention should be drawn in order to enable a proper  understanding  of  the accounts  to be
