This page details our key financial documents, policies and reports. It will get quite in-depth at times, but we've made every attempt to make it 'human-readable'.
We have several policies that guide how we spend our funds. These policies are changed by the [[board]] as and when needed.
* Our [[Finance Policy]] sets out how we maintain suitable financial controls to safeguard our assets and ensure they are applied effectively and efficiently in support of our [[objects]]. Where financial conflicts between different policies exist, generally the [[Finance Policy]] will take precedence.
* Our [[Conflict of Interest Policy]] controls when a trustee is allowed to claim expenses, and the very limited circumstances in which a Trustee may buy from, sell to, be employed by, or receive financial benefit from the charity.
* Our [[Scheme of Delegation]] sets out the powers that are delegated to the Chief Executive - for example, the power to spend money, hire staff, or represent the charity publicly.
* Our [[Donation and grant acceptance]] policy, which sets out the circumstances in which a donation can be accepted without having to consult the board.
==Annual Reports==
Since 2012, our Annual Reports and end-of-year accounts have been created in two formats - a glossy version with limited financial information, known as the Annual Review, and a plain version with full financial information, known as the Annual Report. The Annual Report is the copy that is submitted to Companies House and the Charity Commission.
* [[:File:Wikimedia UK accounts 31 January 2010.pdf|Our Annual Report from Incorporation to 31 January 2010]] <ref>[[:File:WMUK Jan2010 Abbreviated Accs FINAL.pdf|Abbreviated accounts]] are also available, which were prepared in the interim period before the full accounts were finalized</ref>
* [[:File:Wikimedia UK accounts 31 January 2011.pdf|Our Annual Report from 1 February 2010 to 31 January 2011]].
* [[:File:2011-12 Annual Accounts.pdf|Our Annual Report from 1 February 2011 to 31 January 2012]]. A glossy Annual Review was also created this year: see our [[2012 Annual Report]].
