Thanks ddl, it won't copy most of it but interesting little snippet and the way it is worded from the link above..

A company set up by Kate and Gerry McCann to fund the search for their daughter has had a boost in profits.

“Find Madeleine – Leaving No Stone Unturned” has more than £800,000 in assets, after making nearly £100,000 in the past year.

The article is the usual tripe.

And it says the book remains a best seller. I hardly think so now.

And it refers to losses in previous years. I think there was only one year in which there was a loss and it wasn't much. Could be wrong about that. Anyway why would there be losses when they aren't appointing top detectives any more?

Some good footage and photos. The comments are interesting too. IMO the McCanns and their friends have been playing us for fools and the media have allowed it. Of course the main question is: why?

Thanks, Freedom.

Had to Google, but it looks like a Confirmation statement is a simplified version of the old "Annual Return".

https://www.1stformations.co.uk/blog/confirmation-statement-explained/

I think in this case the Fund is claiming there have been no changes to the company details - e.g. shareholders, addresses etc. There's a lot about shares - does the fund have any shareholders??? Shocked

Just had a look. It's just the annual statement that has to be provided by law, ensuring all company details are up to date.

There was me hoping MPS had finally got off their butts and closed the whole ruddy thing down cheers

No Stone Unturned Fund Accounts - Page 4 Empty Re: No Stone Unturned Fund Accounts

Post  Antonia on Wed 08 Jan 2020, 2:17 pm

I set out below a penetrating analysis of the Fund Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2019

There are 8 pages to the Accounts

page 1.
Title page. No change in the company name. The stamp on the page reveals the accounts were lodged on 28.12.2019 = 3 days before the deadline when fines are incurred. The Fund are always filed at the last moment.

page 2
Contents (ie Index). 3 items Company Info/Balance Sheet/Notes to the Financial Statements

page 3
Company info; Six Directors as last year: the McCanns, Uncle Brian, Friend Jon Corner, Lawyer Ed Smethurst, and Accountant John Griffin appointed c.2 years ago. other stuff as before. The official McCann website still lists Michael Linnett as a director when he died several years ago. No mention on the website that the latest accounts are now available.

pages 4 and 5
Balance Sheet

The net assets of the company have increased from £823,332 to £844,573.
Somebody owes the company £4703. The company owes £17,622.
The money in the bank at the year end 31 March 2019 is £236,187 similar to what was there at 31 March 2018

And the most exciting info on the balance sheet - the company approved the financial statements and their issue on 24 December 2019. How's that for dedication to the cause - having a Board meeting on Christmas Eve!

Pages 6,7 8
Notes to the Financial Statements

Essentially a copy and paste from last year with the year to march 2019 figures put in.

The value of the company's investments has increased from £594,198 in 2018 to £621,305.

Debtors. The Notes repeat the Balance Sheet info that £4,703 is owed to the company but merely states the debt is recoverable. What could this be?

Creditors.
The company owes tax £7,647 and accrued expenses £9,975 total £17,622.
Sales of wristbands and Tshirts must have been good to incur that tax liability (2018 tax liability £2,666) or maybe the extra tax also relates to dividends and interest received on the investments?

What are the accrued expenses? The company does not have an office and appears to do nothing so there wouldn't be utility bills due at the year end. Perhaps the accruals relate to directors' expenses eg travelling to the meeting on 24 December to approve the Accounts?

In Note 6 under Reserves, it is revealed that the company made a surplus of £21,241 for the year. Well done the magnificant six directors!

Note 9 reveals how generous Dr Kate McCann is - she donated £1,239 out of her post tax royalties from her book to the company. Now the book did have on its front cover that all royalties were going to the Fund but nice to have the auditors verify that this is happening.

I don't understand why there is no Directors Report commenting on the year. Obviously there is no legal need to include one, but you would have thought that the accountant on the Board John Griffin who is not (as far as we know) a friend or family member, would have suggested this.

Is there some award I can be nominated for, given my above incisive analysis all in the public interest?

How many more £70/months (or whatever it is) does Tony Bennett still have to cough up?

You're thinking that the £4,700 approx owed to them could be Tony's remaining debt?

Perhaps someone with access to CMoMM could find out.

I hope you enjoy your biscuits, Antonia.

P.S. On second thoughts, wouldn't his debt be due to them personally and not the company?

Freedom, you have to be right. Mr Bennetts conviction was about breaking orders not to publish 'defamatory' material about the McCanns and so hinder the 'search' so the settlement would have been due to the Mccanns personally.

So who does owe the Fund this £4,700?

Had a thought about the accruals (money owed at year end) - perhaps it wasn't all the directors expenses attending the Board meeting on Christmas Eve - some must have been an accrual for the auditors fees for these so informative accounts!

It's interesting which individuals and organizations hooked themselves to the bandwagon early on,  when money was flowing fast into the fund and when public money was being spent on leaving no stone unturned to damage-control, PR and lawyer-up find abducted Madeleine alive.

Clarence Mitchell was apparently convinced by the pair's innocence which lead him to quit his job as a civil servant because he 'wanted to help them'. Sweet of him. Lawyers Michael Caplan, none other than a QC, and Angus McBridge appeared to be following the (public) money convinced of the pair's innocence as did Portuguese lawyer Carlos Pinto de Abreu. Ester McVey jumped on the PR wagon, having known Kate since schooldays apparently, while Gerry's siblings Philomena and John were determined to 'keep it in the family', so to speak.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/madeleinemccann/1563653/Team-McCann-The-couples-key-staff.html

I have long been intrigued by the police involvement in the case (or lack of it). Gerry receiving a standing ovation at a Police Bravery Awards ceremony in London a few months after Madeleine disappeared was something of a mindf*** one might say (see link below).

https://metro.co.uk/2007/07/13/mccanns-thank-wonderful-police-540333/

However, it is interesting to read that Michael Caplan, QC, the lawyer hired by the McCanns (snipped from link below, my emphasis):

Caplan sits as a Recorder (judge) in the Crown Court, is a chairman of the police disciplinary appeal tribunal; and formerly was chairman of the Solicitors Higher Courts Advocates Association...................He is a member of the Sentencing Council and the Criminal Procedure Rule Committee.

http://genreith.de/MMcC/doku.php?id=michael_caplan

The expression foxes in charge of the hen coop springs to mind.

More abut the fund. I am sure many members of the public who donated money to help find Madeleine had no idea that the fund was a private business and not a registered charity.

Because the fund is a private business and not a registered charity, the money is not ring-fenced for a particular purpose and there is little to stop the McCanns using the money for legal fees.

The Charity Commission ruled that the fund could not be registered because its aims were not broad enough. Instead, Madeleine’s Fund: Leaving No Stone Unturned Ltd, was set up as a company. It means that the McCanns only have to get the directors' consent to access the cash.

As well as Miss McVey, the board includes Doug Skehan, 54, a clinical director of cardiology at Glenfield Hospital in Leicester and colleague of Mr McCann, Peter Hubner, 64, a retired consultant and Philip Tomlinson, 76, a lawyer, both of whom are friends.

John McCann, 48, Mr McCann's brother, and Mr Kennedy are also directors but Miss McVey said they would not be able to vote because they are family members.



ETA: I know this is old news, but it is useful to be reminded of who was involved in the early days of the setting up of The Fund.
