Request for a new auditor
Date posted: Wednesday 4th November 2015
The Trustees are seeking a replacement for Carol Ruddock, who audited the Friends’ annual accounts for several years and stepped down at the 2015 AGM. Is anyone interested in taking on this voluntary job? As a small charity the Friends’ annual accounts are prepared on a receipts and payments basis showing how much money is held and has been received and paid out. The financial records are a mixture of hard copy documents, e.g. invoices and bank statements, and data held on spreadsheets.
Once appointed by the Trustees, the auditor’s work will involve liaising with the Hon. Treasurer, John Elrick, and auditing the 2015 annual accounts. The accounts run from January to December. John will prepare the 2015 accounts in January 2016 which will need to be audited in February in time for the AGM in early March.
Any member who is interested needs to:
- be independent of all aspects of the Friends’ management.
- be able to access and use the spreadsheet data.
- be able to work with figures.
The audited 2014 accounts are on the web site at audited 2014 accounts. If anyone is interested please contact the Hon. Treasurer, John Elrick, who is happy to provide more information. John can be contacted on 020 8979 7512 or firstname.lastname@example.org
