REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL AUDITOR, WINDWARD ISLANDS ON THE
ACCOUNTS OF THE GOVERNMENT SAVINGS BANK, ST. VINCENT
FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31ST DECEMBER, 1959.



The accounts of the Government Savings Bank, St. Vincent for the year
ended 31st December, 1959 have been examined in accordance with Section 12 of
the Savings Bank Ordinance (No. 1 of 1936).

REVENUE AND EXPENDIrruE ACCOUNTs.

2. Interest paid Depositors on closed accounts $518.84: Included in the
amount of $518.84 for interest paid to depositors on closed accounts is an over-
payment of $1.30 due to an error in calculation of interest. Recovery has been
seen in the 1960 accounts.

DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS.

3. The amounts of $350,387.77 shown as deposits received and $362,862.94 as
withdrawals are each overstated by $112.43 resulting from the fact that this
amount, which was charged in excess to withdrawals, was when adjusted
incorrectly credited to deposits. -

RECONCILIATION OF DEPOSITORS' BALANCES.

4. The total of the balances on the individual depositors' accounts at 31st
December, 1959 exceeded the balance on the Main Ledger account by 02 cents.

SUSPENSE AccouNT.

5. The balance of $88.60 on the Suspense Account represents an accumula-
tion of unexplained errors in the accounts. Approval for the write off of $78.91
of this amount has been given by the Administrator.

BALANCE SHEET.

6. Accumulated Deficit $59,421.00: As a results of the error mentioned at
paragraph 2 of this report the accumulated deficit is overstated by $1.30 and
should correctly read $59,419.70.
