The group consists of West Coast Community Trust and its subsidiary West Coast Community Trust Charitable Company Limited. These accounts have been prepared in accordance with the 1993 Financial Reporting Act. The group qualifies for differential reporting because its revenue and number of employees fall below the threshold set by the differential reporting standards.
The group has applied all the differential reporting exemptions allowed with the exception of SSAP3 - Accounting for Depreciation.
