Annual Reports & Audited Accounts

CONTESA is a registered non-profit making limited company (company registration number 5314471) and a UK registered charity (charity number 1109311). Although CONTESA is a small charity and is not legally required to have it’s accounts audited, the Trustees decided from day 1 to appoint a firm of auditors as this would give confidence to supporters, donors and the trustees. CONTESA appointed Averillo and Associates of Croydon and they have been re-appointed each year.

Details of the finances, accounts and compliance record of CONTESA are availble on the Charity Commission website - click here to view
