Preparation of Director’s Report
The Directors are responsible for preparing financial statements for each financial year in accordance with the Financial Reporting Standards (FRSs) and general accounting practice. The statements must give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Company and of the profit or loss of the Company for that period. This requires the faithful representation of the effects of transactions, other events and conditions in accordance with reporting standards.

Companies are legally obliged to include a Director’s Report in their annual financial statement. The report must give a fair review of the company’s financial and operational results and condition and also include additional information such as dividend recommendation, reserved earnings, details of directors and their interest, principal risks and uncertainties etc.
Director’s Report is an important communication medium for a company to interact with various interest groups such as investors, creditors, government bodies, business analysts etc. Therefore it is essential to ensure that the report includes all the relevant information succinctly yet without any ambiguity.
Preparation of Auditor’s Report
