REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT AUDITOR TO THE MEMBERS OF SOLIDARITY
I have examined the accounts of the union with proper care and can confirm that financial statements give a true and fair view of the matters to which they relate to.
There are no exceptional items to report and the deficit balance on the account does not in any way jeopardise the union’s future.
I am satisfied that the union has:
- Kept proper account records with respect to its transactions and its assets and liabilities
- Established and maintained a satisfactory system of control of its accounting records, its cash holding, and its receipts and remittances.
The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the sections 28, 32, and 36 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992.
