Report of the Director of Audit of Trinidad and Tobago on the Accounts of the Board
of Commissioners of Currency British Caribbean Territories (Eastern Group) for the
year ended 31st Decembtr, 1952.
Currency Fund Income Account.
The income for the year exceeded the operating expenditure 'by $906,218-52. From this sum the
deficit of $188,755-90. brought forward from the 1951 accounts was paid off, and $452,387-04. i.e. 1%
of the value of the Currency Fund before the inclusion of the Statutory Contribution was transferred
to the Currency Fund. It has now been agreed that this method of computing this 1% is in accordance
with Article 4 (2), C of the First Schedule to Ordinance No. 39 of 1950 (Trinidad and Tobago).
2. The balance of $265,075-58 in the Income Account was not distributed among the participating
Governments of the Group, but was also transferred to the Currency Fund in accordance with Article 4
(3) a, of the First Schedule to the said Ordinance, as the value of the notes in circulation exceeded the
value of the Currency Fund at the close of the year.
3. Currency Fund.
After the transfers referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 above the Note Circulation exceeded the
Currency Fund by $477,124-44. According to Article 6 (2) of the terms of agreement, the participating
Governments are liable to make good this difference to such extent as the Secretary of State may deem
it necessary. The Governments have not yet been required to fulfil this obligation.
4. Boards of Survey.
The requirements of Regulation 20 regarding the periodical verification of Currency Note Stocks.
were not fully observed during the year. The Stocks of Notes in Dominica were not examined by a
Board of Survey in the first quarter nor those at St. Lucia during the second quarter of 1952. No
surveys were held in Trinidad, Barbados, Grenada and St. Kitts during the third quarter or in Grenada,.
St. Vincent or Antigua during the 4th quarter. The stipulated Annual Surprise Surveys were not held.
in Grenada, Antigua, St. Vincent, Dominica and St. Kitts.
5. Outstanding Accounts.
The Accounts have been presented on a cash basis, as was done for the previous accounting 'period.
Because of delay in the submission of claims, certain accounts were outstanding at the close of the
year-e.g. out df a total provision $1,240-00 per annum for audit fees payable to the governments
of the various Colonies, only $620-00 (Trinidad $600-00, St. Vincent $20-00) had been paid :at
31st December, 1952. The exact figure of the total of commitments outstanding is not available.
Audited Statements of Currency transactions during 1952 have not been received from the
Windward Islands and the Leeward Islands at the date of this report. Verification has been effected
with the copies of the Duplicate Vault Registers received from these territorie: by the Executive
Commissioner of the Board at Port of Spain.
