Statement as to disclosure of information to Auditors

Each of the persons who are Directors at the time when this Directors’ Report is approved has confirmed that:

  • so far as that Director is aware, there is no relevant audit information of which the Company’s Auditor is unaware, and
  • that Director has taken all the steps that ought to have been taken as a Director in order to be aware of any relevant audit information and to establish that the Company’s Auditor is aware of that information.

Statement of Directors’ responsibilities

The Directors are responsible for preparing the Annual Report and the Financial Statements in accordance with European Union endorsed, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), interpretations from the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee (IFRIC) and those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under IFRS.

Company law requires the Directors to prepare financial statements for each financial period, which give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the IIRC and of the profit or loss for that period. In preparing the financial statements, the Directors are required to:

  • select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently
  • make judgements and estimates that are reasonable, comparable, understandable and prudent
  • ensure that the financial statements comply with IFRS
  • prepare the financial statements on a going concern basis, unless it is inappropriate to presume that the IIRC will continue in business.

The Directors are responsible for keeping proper books of accounts, which disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the IIRC and enable them to ensure that the financial statements comply with the Companies Act 2006. The Directors are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the IIRC and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.

The Directors’ report is approved by the Board and authorized for issue on July 2018 and signed on its behalf by
