are required to be sent in monthly to the Treasurer. NIL returns being sub fitted
where necessary. In several instances most of the branches have failed to send in

form of expenditure voucher is in use.

from a dance held by the Union in 1950, and likewise the write-off of $1.82 due by
the Portsmouth Branch as at 31st December, 1951.
STATEMENT OF ASSETS AND LIABILITIES
14 The Statements of Assets and Liabilities as at the 31st December, 1948
and subsequent years to 1951 have not been produced for examination, and
attention is directed to paragraph 31 (1) of the Ordinance No. 20 of 1940.
CASH BALANCES

15. The cash on hand at 31st December, 1951 amounted to $71.23 in the hands
of the Treasurer and $7.15 in the hands of the various branches. No certificated
survey reports have been produced to verify these holdings.
SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS

16. The audit of the accounts has disclosed unsatisfactory accounting. The
records produced do not fulfil the minimum requirements and various recom-
mendations are detailed in paragraph 17 below.
17. In addition to the returns called for in paragraph 31 of Ordinance No. 20
of 1940, it will be necessary for the Union to furnish the Auditor with the follow-
ing Statements: -
(1) An arrears of subscription list, quoting the name of each subscriber,
the period of arrears and the amount.
(2) A list of Assets showing the value, date of purchase and voucher
number. The list should be signed by two officials of the Union.
(3) A list of Creditors, showing the Creditor's name, description of the
service, date incurred and the amount,
(4) The returns called for in sub-paragraphs 1- 3 are to be complied as
at the date of the Statement of Assets and Liabilities.
CASH BOOK
18. It is imperative that Cash Books be kept by the various branches and
the serial number, name and amount of every receipt voucher entered therein.
19. A simple form of expenditure voucher should be introduced by the Union
setting out the Number, Name of Payee date, description of service and amount,
and should be entered on the payment side of the cash book in support of all pay-
ments.
SUBSCRIPTION REGISTER
20. The subscription Register should be cross referenced with the Cash Book
and this may be effected by quoting the Cash Book Receipt Voucher Number and
date on the Register and the Subscription Register's folio number on the receipt
voucher.
21. The amount owing by a subscriber, in arrears must be carried forward
each year and the subscription Register must be ruled to allow columns for (a)
Arrears brought forward (b) Receipt No. and date of payment of arrears and (c)
Arrears carried forward.
22. When a subscriber pays arrears and current subscriptions, the cash book
receipt voucher must be allocated to show the amounts of the arrears and the
current subscriptions, separately.
