Directors’ Report and Financial Statements
Independent Auditor’s Report to the Members of
the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association.
We have audited the financial statements of the Cosmetic,
Toiletry and Perfumery Association for the year ended
31 December 2013 which comprise the Income and
Expenditure Account, the Balance Sheet and the related
notes numbered 1 to 13.
The financial reporting framework that has been applied
in their preparation is applicable law and United Kingdom
Accounting Standards (United Kingdom Generally
Accepted Accounting Practice).
This report is made solely to the company’s members, as a
body, in accordance with Chapter 3 of Part 16 of the
Companies Act 2006. Our audit work has been undertaken
so that we might state to the company’s members those
matters we are required to state to them in an auditor’s
report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent
permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility
to anyone other than the company and the company’s
members as a body, for our audit work, for this report,
or for the opinions we have formed.
Respective responsibilities of directors & auditors
As explained more fully in the Statement of Directors’
Responsibilities, the directors are responsible for the
preparation of the financial statements and for being
satisfied that they give a true and fair view. Our responsibility
is to audit the financial statements in accordance with
applicable law and International Standards on Auditing
(UK and Ireland). Those standards require us to comply with
the Auditing Practices Board’s Ethical Standards for Auditors.
Scope of the audit of the financial statements
An audit involves obtaining evidence about the amounts
and disclosures in the financial statements sufficient to give
reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free
from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or
error. This includes an assessment of: whether the
accounting policies are appropriate to the company’s
circumstances and have been consistently applied and
adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant
accounting estimates made by the directors; and the overall
presentation of the financial statements.
In addition, we read all the financial and non-financial
information in the Directors’ Report to identify material
inconsistencies with the audited financial statements and
to identify any information that is apparently materially
incorrect based on, or materially inconsistent with,
the knowledge acquired by us in the course of performing
the audit. If we become aware of any apparent material
misstatements or inconsistencies we consider the implications
for our report.
Opinion on financial statements
In our opinion, the financial statements:
• give a true and fair view of the state of the company’s
affairs as at 31 December 2013 and of its surplus for the
year then ended;
• have been properly prepared in accordance with United
Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice; and
• have been prepared in accordance with the requirements
of the Companies Act 2006.
Opinion on other matter prescribed by the
Companies Act 2006
In our opinion the information given in the Directors’ Report
for the financial year for which the financial statements are
prepared is consistent with the financial statements.
Matters on which we are required to report by exception
We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters
where the Companies Act 2006 requires us to report to you if,
in our opinion:
• adequate accounting records have not been kept, or returns
adequate for our audit have not been received from
branches not visited by us; or
• the financial statements are not in agreement with the
accounting records and returns; or
• certain disclosures of directors’ remuneration specified by
law are not made; or
• we have not received all the information and explanations
we require for our audit; or
• the directors were not entitled to prepare the financial
statements in accordance with the small companies regime
and take advantage of the small companies exemption in
preparing the directors report.
