Statement to Members
Trade Union rules require the Players’ Committee to prepare Financial Statements for each financial year which give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Association and of the surplus or deficit of the Association for that period. In preparing those Financial Statements the Players’ Committee is required to:
- Select suitable accounting policies and apply them consistently;
- Make judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent;
- Prepare Financial Statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Association will continue to operate.
This statement has been approved by the PCA Management Board at its meeting on 20 February 2017, and received final approval by the Players’ Committee at the Annual General Meeting of the Association on 21 February 2017.
