Minutes:

The committee received a report presenting amended annual accounts for financial years 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 for consideration and approval. The Charity Commission had requested that the accounts be revised in order to show that the funds for the sale of 776 and 778 Harrow Road were classed as restricted funds. The amended accounts had been subject to an independent examination by the Head of Audit and Investigations and the resulting reports were provided as appendices to the report. Arnold Meagher (Head of Litigation and Dispute Resolution) drew the committee’s attention to paragraph 3.4 of the report which set out a further minor amendment to the accounts for 2017/18. It was highlighted that as at 31 March 2018, the total Trust balance amounted £463,808 which was £1,349 less than the figure reported to the Trust Committee on 4 September 2018. This change was due to a correction of the brought forward figure from 2016/17 which officers had identified as a result of revising the accounts for 2017/18. With the permission of the Trust, the annual report for 2017/18 would be amended to reflect these changes.

 

The Chair thanked the officers for their introduction to the report.
