Academies: What you need to know about 2011-12 disclosures

The first two articles in this series considered the reports required to be prepared by the governors’ and the detailed financial statements, explains Steve Collings.

This final article considers the detailed disclosure requirements that academies are required to make in their annual financial statements. 

Additional disclosures required under UK GAAP and the SoRP should be made in the notes to the financial statements. The 2011/12 AAD considers the notes at section 9.5 and they are extensive.

The notes required are the same as for any other charitable company, but academies are required to include a note identifying any unspent GAG which has been carried forward to the next accounting period.
