Article 2 – Reports

  • A. Except as provided in the articles of incorporation or bylaws of a corporation organized primarily for religious purposes, a corporation on written demand from a member shall furnish that member its latest annual financial statements that may be consolidated or combined statements of the corporation and one or more of its subsidiaries or affiliates, as appropriate, and that include a balance sheet as of the end of the fiscal year and statement of operations for that year. If financial statements are prepared for the corporation on the basis of generally accepted accounting principles, the annual financial statements shall also be prepared on that basis.

    • 1. Stating that person’s reasonable belief whether the statements were prepared on the basis of generally accepted accounting principles and, if not, describing the basis of preparation.
    • 2. Describing any respects in which the statements were not prepared on a basis of accounting consistent with the statements prepared for the preceding year.
