Members' right to the financial accounts

The Act requires the annual financial statements (tier 1) or reports (tiers 2 and 3) to be presented to the members at each AGM. Time must be allocated for the treasurer or other committee member to present a summary of the accounts and explain the major items. Members should also have the opportunity to ask questions. Ideally copies of the accounts should be available to members at the meeting, accessible online or circulated before or after the meeting.

The members’ rights to view the financial records at other times will depend on the inspection of records provisions in the rules.
