Annual Branch Audits

ANNUAL BRANCH AUDIT

The Royal British Legion has a legal obligation to produce annual, audited accounts which include the results, assets and liabilities of all Branches, Counties, trusts and companies within The Royal British Legion Group. Branches play an important role in ensuring the accounts are accurate and complete and that the Legion’s auditors have all the information they need to complete their audit.

All branches will need to complete the appropriate form which will depend on the value of its assets, the level of income for the year and whether or not the Branch has a property.

In order to streamline the year end audit and to reduce pressure on Branch treasurers close to the Poppy Appeal, the accounting period year end is now 30 June.

Your return should be submitted by 30 September each year, at the latest, as stipulated in the Royal Charter.


Please ensure that when submitting accounts for examination, they are supported by a Authority to Disclose Information Form and a bank statement dated 30th June, for each bank account held.
