Busega Scotland takes its responsibilities to supporters and beneficiaries very seriously. The Latest News section of our website has regular updates on the projects in Tanzania and the Accounts and Annual Reports section meets our responsibility to report formally on our work. We also submit an annual return to the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator (OSCR). Our reporting period is December to November and we have so far made three returns, without any queries. OSCR maintains a Busega Scotland page and this can be accessed by Googling OSCR and using our charity number SCO46101.
There is less regulation of charitable activities in Tanzania but in order to provide a similar level of financial accountability Busega Scotland has had its Tanzanian accounts voluntarily audited. The audit was carried out by Phares K. Songo and Co., Certified Public Accountants, and covered our first three years, up to December 2018. For each year, the auditor’s report states that the financial statements give a true and fair view of Busega Scotland’s affairs, in accordance with International Accounting Standards. As an example, the 2018 certificate can be viewed here and in the Accounts and Annual Reports Section of this website.
