ACCOUNTING OFFICER’S STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2017

The Accounting Authority is responsible for the preparation of the IDC’s annual financial statements and for the judgements made in this information.

The Accounting Authority is responsible for establishing, and implementing a system of internal control designed to provide reasonable assurance as to the integrity and reliability of the annual financial statements.

In my opinion, the annual financial statements fairly reflect the operations of the IDC for the financial year ended 31 March 2017.

The external auditors are engaged to express an independent opinion on the annual financial statements of the IDC.

The IDC’s annual financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2017 have been audited by the external auditors and their report is presented on page 5.

The annual financial statements of the IDC set out on page 21 to page 84 have been approved.
