As a charitable organisation dependant solely on the generosity of our supporters we need to demonstrate complete transparency with our finances. Each month we carry out a full reconciliation of our bank statement and publish a summary on Facebook and hard copies on the temple noticeboards. Out latest summary is shown below.
We maintain strict records of our finances throughout the year and pass these to our chartered accountants annually. They carry out a full audit and once they are satisfied sign off our accounts. To date our accounts have never been challenged. The signed accounts are then attached to the Annual Trustees Report and the document is then submitted to The Charities Commission. Our reports can be viewed at www.gov.uk/government/organisations/charity-commission and search for Charity No 1148728
