Sample financial statement

This sample financial statement should only be used as a guide when preparing an annual financial statement for an incorporated society.

Income, expenses, assets and liabilities should be presented in categories that are appropriate to the society’s circumstances.

We recommend you review the rules of the society. Where the rules specify:

  • a particular format of financial statement, for example compliance with GAAP, you must meet these requirements; or
  • that an auditor must be appointed, the audit report must be attached to the financial statement.

This sample statement should not be used where the society has financial statement preparation and filing obligations under other legislation e.g. where the society is an issuer, FMC reporting entity, charity or industrial and provident society. In this case, we recommend you seek professional advice, as appropriate.
