Included in this post are the forms to complete the Year End Audit Confirmation needed by our accountant to conduct the 2015 audit of our national church. There are updated forms this year so please read the instructions below before completing.
One very important change we've had to make is the due date for reports to the national office.
Under the CNCA guidelines we are required by law to report an audited financial statement to the members at our Annual General Meeting (held at convention in April 2016). In order to meet this deadline and give our auditors the time they need to complete the work it was necessary to move up the last possible date for all churches to have their reports into the national office.

The Audit Report Checklist is now a separate form from the Audit Confirmation Form. This form is to be reviewed by both the Lead Pastor and Council Treasurer before sending in.
Once all items have been attached to the completed checklist please send as a cover to the national office.
The Audit Confirmation Form has been amended and no longer has the report checklist (see #1 above). You will also notice that the section for Building & Lands and CIBC Loans has been removed. More details about this change will be sent in a separate blog post.
The completed form is to be reviewed and signed by both the Lead Pastor and Council Treasurer prior to sending in.
New to the year end reporting process is the Council Covenant Form. In the past it had been sent out separately or with the yearly License Renewals. It is now being included as a required report on the Audit Report Checklist to be sent in with the completed forms.
Lead Pastors are to review the Council Covenant with their council members. Each member is to sign once it has been reviewed.
Serving (& Reporting) with you!
