The accounts of the Association (Management Committee and Branches) have to be reviewed each year in the form of a Performance Report that must be filed with Charities Services as a condition of maintaining our Charitable status.
To enable this to happen Branches must provide financial reports, detailing their accounts for the year, to the Management Committee. The accounts are then consolidated before undergoing a finacial review conducted by an auditor.
A copy of the accounts reporting requirements for the year ending 31 December 2023 can be found here.
