The following two parties failed to submit their accounts to the Commission.
- The British National Party
- Christian Party “Proclaiming Christ’s Lordship”
The SDLP Assembly Group accounting unit submitted accounts before the deadline, but failed to include an auditor’s report for their accounts as required by law; accordingly their accounts are considered to be late and are still outstanding.
For late submission of their statements of accounts the parties will be fined a minimum of £500 and the accounting units will be fined a minimum £100. This figure will increase if the accounts are more than three months late.
Peter Wardle, Chief Executive of the Electoral Commission, said:
“The rules that we regulate demand that political parties, who play a crucial part in our democracy, are transparent about how much money they raise and how they spend it. Their annual statements of accounts help give that picture.”
The likely fine/fines to be incurred for the accounts being late are detailed in the link below. Ed.
But wait, there is more: Ed.
“ All legally-required Statement of Accounts are submitted on time.”
Are the lying cabal of Griffarage and his cohorts (co-defendants?) seriously expecting the long abused members to click on the donate button in the above screenshot? Ed.
