STATEMENT OF THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE’S RESPONSIBILITIES
The Management Committee is responsible for preparing the Annual Report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and regulations.
Law applicable to charities in England and Wales requires us as the Management Committee to prepare financial statements for each financial year which give a true and fair view of the Charity’s financial activities during the year and of its financial position at the end of the year. In preparing those financial statements, we are required to:
-select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently;
-prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate that the
Charity will continue in operation.
We are responsible for keeping accounting records that disclose with reasonable accuracy the financial position of the Charity and which enable us to ascertain the financial position of the Charity and which enable us to ensure that the financial statements comply with applicable laws and regulations and the Rules of the Association. We are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Charity and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.
INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT TO THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE OF
KENT COUNTY PLAYING FIELDS ASSOCIATION
We have audited the financial statements of Kent County Playing Fields Association for the year ended 30 November 2010 which comprise the Statement of Financial Activities, the Balance Sheet, and the related notes. These financial statements have been prepared under the accounting policies set out therein and the requirements of the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (effective January 2007).
This report is made solely to the Charity’s Management Committee, as a body, in accordance with section 43 of the Charities Act 1993 and Regulations made under section 44 of that Act. Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the Charity’s Management Committee those matters we are required to state to them in an auditor’s report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the Charity and the Charity’s Management Committee as a body, for our audit work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed.
Respective responsibilities of the Management Committee and Auditors
The Management Committee’s responsibilities for preparing the Management Committee’s Annual Report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and United Kingdom Accounting Standards (United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice) are set out in the Statement of Management Committee’s Responsibilities
We have been appointed as auditors under section 43 of the Charities Act 1993 and report in accordance with regulations made under section 44 of that Act. Our responsibility is to audit the financial statements in accordance with relevant legal and regulatory requirements and International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland).
We report to you our opinion as to whether the financial statements give a true and fair view and are properly prepared in accordance with the Charities Act 1993. We also report to you if, in our opinion, the Management Committee’s Annual Report is not consistent with the financial statements, if the Charity has not kept proper accounting records, or if we have not received all the information and explanations we require for our audit.
We read the Management Committee’s Annual Report and consider the implications for our report if we become aware of any apparent misstatements within it.
Basis of audit opinion
We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on auditing (UK and Ireland) issued by the Auditing Practices Board. An audit includes examination, on a test basis, of evidence relevant to the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. It also includes an assessment of the significant estimates and judgements made by the Management Committee in the preparation of the financial statements, and of whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the Charity’s circumstances, consistently applied and adequately disclosed.
We planned and performed our audit so as to obtain all information and explanations which we considered necessary in order to provide us with sufficient evidence to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or other irregularity or error. In
forming our opinion we also evaluated the overall adequacy of the presentation of information in the financial statements.
