INDEPENDENT EXAMINERS' REPORT
TO THE PRINCIPALS OF
LA VINGTAINE DE LA VILLE DE ST HELIER

We report on the financial statements of the Vingtaine de la Ville de St. Helier for the year ended 31st December 2011 on pages 2 to 4. These financial statements have been prepared under the accounting policies set out therein.

Respective responsibilities of Procureurs and Examiner

The Procureurs are responsible for the preparation of the accounts. The Vingtaine's Procureurs consider that an audit is not required and that an independent examination is appropriate this year.

It is our responsibility to:

  • examine the financial statements: and
  • state whether particular matters have come to our attention.

Basis of opinion

Our examination was carried out in accordance with the General Directions given by the UK Charity Commissioners.

An examination includes a review of the accounting records kept by the Vingtaine and a comparison of the financial statements presented with those records. It also includes consideration of any unusual items or disclosures in the financial statements and seeking explanations from the Committee concerning such matters. The procedures undertaken do not provide all the evidence that would be required in an audit and, consequently no opinion is given as to whether the accounts present a 'true and fair view' and the report is limited to those matters set out in the statement below.

Independent Examiner's Statement

In connection with our examination, no matter has come to our attention:

  1. which gives us reasonable cause to believe that in any material respect the requirements:
    • to keep proper accounting records; and
    • to prepare accounts which accord with the accounting records have not been met;
  2. or

  3. to which in our opinion, attention should be drawn in to enable a proper understanding of the financial statements to be reached.
