Directors’ responsibilities for the financial statements

The directors acknowledge their responsibilities for:

(a)   ensuring that the Society keeps accounting records which disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of Power for Good Co-operative Limited and which enable them to ensure that the financial statements comply with the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts; and

(b)   preparing financial statements which give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Society as at the end of each financial year and of its profit and loss for each financial year in accordance with the requirements of the Industrial and Provident Societies
Acts, so far as applicable to the Society.

Disapplication of requirement for statutory audit

 Under the legislation governing Industrial & Provident Societies, a Society whose turnover is less than £90,000 and whose total assets are less than £2.8 million may, under specified conditions and with the approval of its members, disapply the requirement for a full professional audit of its financial statements. Power for Good Co-operative Limited met the relevant conditions throughout the financial year to 30 September 2014 and the members have not required the Society to obtain an audit of its financial statements for this period.
