Treasurer's Report for the period December 2011- November 2012

 

 

The balance sheet for the 2012 period at first looks much worse than the equivalent one for 2011. In 2011 a surplus of 1,754.40 was documented, whereas for 2012 we have a deficit of €1,262.64. This does not mean, however, that we have to get worried, our bank account still shows a comfortable 4,058.09. Even though 1,500.00 of this is ear-marked for a special purpose we still have over 2,500.00 at our disposal, and that is before the membership fees for 2013 are paid.

 

 

As far as income is concerned, the membership fees are nearly exactly the same, the fees of non-members having increased slightly. The grant of Dublin City Council has been reduced from 600 to €400 which, in these times of financial stress, is understandable. We are very grateful to Dublin City Council to have got any grant at all!

 

 

The reason for the huge difference in the balance sheets for 2011 and 2012 is the following: for various reasons the contributions to St. Mary's National School for using their hall have only been paid in 2012, and also the money for the book tokens for the speakers in 2011 have only been taken off our bank account in 2012. This means that a good amount of the expenses for 2012  really were expenses for 2011. Also, the Annual Report for 2010 could only be printed and sent in 2012, so that not only the printing costs arose in 2012, but also the postage was much higher than in 2011. If we balance the surplus of 2011 with the deficit of 2012  we have to state that from the beginning of 2011 to the end of2012 we still have a surplus.

 

 

Altogether, it can be said that the finances of the Society are still very sound, which means that we still need not raise the membership fees, which now have been stable since the beginning of our Society in 2007.
