Finance

As a Registered Charity, Friends of Roxburghe House Grampian (FoRHG) is governed by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR), and has to submit a copy of the audited accounts and an Annual Monitoring Return. For many years, an independent firm of Chartered Accountants in Aberdeen has audited the Accounts.
The charity’s Accounts are normally prepared for the period 1st January to 31st December every year, but 2015 was an exception.

On 2nd June 2015, FoRHG changed its legal status from being an Unincorporated Association to become a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). All the assets and liabilities of the old Unincorporated Association were transferred to the new SCIO, which continues the aims and objectives of the former charity.

Although in practice the charity continued to carry on without change, the SCIO is a new entity in the eyes of the law, and consequently, separate Accounts had to be prepared for both:
  • Unincorporated Association from 1st January to 30th June and
  • SCIO from 2nd June to 31st December
The accounts for both periods have been consolidated into one file, which can be seen on the OSCR website. Click on the link below:

The accounts show a strong financial position at 31 December 2015, but the Board of Trustees has agreed to fund a substantial proportion of the Roxburghe House Refurbishment Project that commenced on 12 October 2015. The project is being jointly funded by FoRHG, MacMillan Cancer Support and the NHS Grampian Endowment Fund, and none of the costs incurred in 2015 accrued to FoRHG. The Project was completed before the end of October 2016, and all the FoRHG share of the costs will be shown in the 2016 Accounts.
