All Saints’ Church Annual Accounts and Independent Examiner’s Report for 2011

 

INDEPENDENT EXAMINER’S REPORT

 

TO THE PAROCHIAL CHURCH COUNCIL OF

ALL SAINTS CHURCH, HOLLINGBOURNE

 

 

 

 

 

 

This report on the financial statements of the PCC for the year ended 31st December 2011, which are set out on pages

11 to 14, is in respect of an examination carried out in accordance with the Church Accounting Regulations 2006 (‘the Regulations’) and S.43 of the Charities Act 1993 (‘the Act’).

 

Respective Responsibilities of PCC and Examiner

 

As the members of the PCC you are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements; you consider that the audit requirement of the Regulations and Section 43(2) of the Act does not apply.  It is my responsibility to issue this report on those financial statements in accordance with the terms of the Regulations.

Basis of Independent Examiner’s Report

 

My examination was carried out in accordance with the General Directions given by the Charity Commission under Section 43(7)(b) of the Act and to be found in the Church guidance, 2006 edition, issued by the Finance Division of the Archbishops Council.  That examination includes a review of the accounting records kept by the PCC and a comparison of the financial statements with those records.  It also includes considering any unusual items or disclosures in the financial statements 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 I do not express an audit opinion on the view given by the

financial statements.

 

Independent Examiner’s Statement

 

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

 

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

 

·         to keep accounting records in accordance with Section 41 of the Act; and

·         to prepare financial statements which accord with the accounting records and to comply with the requirements of the Act,  and the Regulations have not been met; or

 

2)       to which, in my opinion, attention should be drawn in order to enable a proper understanding of the financial statements to be reached.
