Resolution to dis-apply the requirement for an audit for 2020-21

“It is hereby resolved that subject to the provisions of section 84 of the Co-Operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014, the members of the Society shall not require an audit for the accounts covering the current financial year ending on 31 May 2021 when they are presented to the next AGM held in 2020, by hereby electing to dis-apply section 83 of the Act.”

Explanation: we are not legally required to undergo an audit unless we have assets of more than £5.1m or turnover of more than £10.2m. In the current financial year our turnover won’t be higher than £500k at the most. An audit is expensive and unnecessary, and so we would like to agree not to pay for one.
