External auditors give Commonwealth clean bill of health

17 February 2020

External auditors have given the organisation a clean bill of financial health for the 10th consecutive year.

Audited financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Public Sector Accounting Standards, which are the best practice accounting standards for an organisation such as the Secretariat.

For ten consecutive years the Secretariat's external auditors have provided an unmodified opinion on the financial statements for each of the Commonwealth's three funds, which concludes that the financial statements are prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework.

The Commonwealth's 2018/19 financial statements:

Audited financial statements of the Commonwealth Secretariat Fund

Audited financial statements of the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Co-operation (CFTC)

Audited financial statements of the Commonwealth Youth Programme
