- On the 'Financial Statements' tab confirm that your financial statements have been approved by a general meeting or your members.
- Upload a copy of your financial statements, and provide details of your society’s total income, expenses, assets and liabilities. If any of the totals for income, expenses, assets or liabilities is 'Nil', you must enter $0.00. The fields cannot be left blank.
- Confirm whether an audit review or report is attached.
- Where mortgages, charges and securities apply, confirm that they have been included in the financial statements.

- On the ‘Review’ tab, check that the information you’ve provided is correct. If changes are needed, you’ll need to return to the relevant tab.
- Complete the ‘Signatory Details’ section and click the ‘Apply’ button to submit your financial statements.
