Dear All,

Please find attached the accounts for Companies House (p.5 -- the
balance sheet -- is the only page that it is essential to look at for
CH). I have checked them and they appear to be fine (the balance sheet
corresponds exactly to the 08/09 BS in our accounts spreadsheet that
people perused on Tuesday).

In order to sign them off so I can send them back to the accountant
early enough for him to send to CH by 28th, please could people look
at these **asap and get back to me by Monday (or before).

Some points to note:

  * The list of Directors is wrong (it has not been updated from
previous year). I have already spoken with the accountant and this
will be corrected (in fact it seems for CH this does not matter as
they only require an abbreviated balance sheet).

  * As stated in the notes "turnover" in the P&L corresponds to
donations. This does not seem to be the best designation and we shall
aim to change this (if not possible in this set of accounts given the
timeline, at least in the future).

  * "Shareholder funds" still appears in the accounts. I have sought
to have this changed to "Accumulated Funds" as per discussion last
