AGM ACCOUNTS24NADFAS REVIEW / AUTUMN annual review Drawing from his recent AGM presentation, NADFAS Treasurer Chris Robinsonoffers a summary of the Last year I said that despite thethen economic outlook, we werestill well placed for the future, but that we were being very cautious due to:-the economic situationthe fact that one of our travel affiliates,Hebridean International, had gone intoadministration, resulting in us sufferinga bad debt us expecting a reduction in ouradvertising and tours commissionincome stock markets continuing to fall, whichhad reduced our reserves cover tobelow our target level at the time ofthe AGM.These factors, together with thereduction of interest rates tounprecedented levels, meant that thesmall deficit we had budgeted for in2009 would be higher, despite uscutting some expenditure. 'Results better than expected'In the end, our results turned out to bemuch better than expected as:-we recorded a deficit of under£12,500the stock market recovery in thesecond half of 2009 resulted in ourreserves recovering substantially andbeing above our target at the end ofthe yearwe increased our charitable giving.Therefore, NADFAS continues to be wellplaced for the future.INCOMEIn 2009 the General Fund's income was£1.37 million - nearly 10% lower than2008. Our income, (as shown in the lefthand pie chart on page 27) is stilldominated by subscriptions, advertisingand tours commission.The key points of interest were that:- our income from affiliation feesincreased by over 3%, as once againGENERALDESIGNATEDTOTALTOTALCONSOLIDATED STATEMENT OF FINANCIALACTIVITIES (INCLUDING INCOME AND 2009200920092008EXPENDITURE ACCOUNT)FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2009£000£000£000£000INCOMING RESOURCESIncoming resources from generated fundsVoluntary incomeSubscriptions and fees from membersGift AidDonations, legacies and other similar incomeEducational course fees and eventsActivities for generating fundsTrading subsidiaries' incomeOther incomeInvestment incomeBank interest and investment incomeTOTAL INCOMING RESOURCESRESOURCES EXPENDEDCosts of generating fundsCosts of generating voluntary incomeGift Aid -Societies' administration costsFundraising tradingTrading subsidiaries expenditureEducation courses and eventsCharitable activitiesSocieties and Area grantsEducation VolunteeringMembership servicesGovernance costsTOTAL RESOURCES EXPENDEDNET INCOME/(EXPENDITURE) BEFORE TRANSFERSTRANSFERSGross transfers between fundsNet incoming/(outgoing) resources before other recognised gains and lossesOTHER RECOGNISED (LOSSES)/GAINSGain/(loss) in the value of investmentsRealisedUnrealisedNet movement in fundsRECONCILIATION OF FUNDSTotal funds brought forwardTotal funds carried forward1,028.822.9 1,051.7 1,018.6 -94.5 94.5 79.0 2.7 5.8 8.5 43.1 15.3 162.5 177.8 216.9 307.0 -307.0 333.9 -8.5 8.5 37.2 16.9 12.2 29.1 98.0 1,370.7 306.4 1,677.1 1,826.7 -30.3 30.3 27.0 -119.9 119.9 131.2 443.4 -443.4 442.4 5.3 -5.3 2.3 195.0 78.5 273.5 267.0 240.8 26.4 267.2 274.5 325.9 55.9 381.8 415.6 144.6 -144.6 172.7 1,355.0 311.0 1,666.0 1,732.7 15.7 (4.6)11.1 94.0 (28.2)28.2 --(12.5)23.6 11.1 94.0 (11.5)(1.7)(13.2)-76.6 57.4 134.0 (138.8)52.6 79.3 131.9 (44.8)1,078.1 1,596.8 2,674.9 2,719.7 1,130.7 1,676.1 2,806.8 2,674.9
