Directors’ responsibilities and approvals
for the year ended 30 June 2017
The Board is required by the Companies Act to maintain adequate accounting records and is responsible for the content and integrity of the Annual Financial Statements of Super Group and related financial information included in this Integrated Report and published on the Group's website ww.supergroup.co.za. It is its responsibility to ensure that the Annual Financial Statements fairly present the financial position of the company and the Group at the end of the financial year and the results of their operations and cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with IFRS and the requirements of the Companies Act. The external auditors are engaged to express an independent opinion on the Annual Financial Statements.
The Annual Financial Statements have been audited by the independent accounting firm, KPMG Inc., which was given unrestricted access to all financial records and related data, including minutes of all meetings of the shareholders, the directors and its committees. The directors believe that all representations made to the independent auditors during the audit were valid and appropriate.
The Annual Financial Statements are prepared in accordance with IFRS and are based upon appropriate accounting policies consistently applied and supported by reasonable and prudent judgements and estimates.
The directors acknowledge that they are ultimately responsible for the system of internal financial control established by the Group and place considerable importance on maintaining a strong control environment. To enable the directors to meet this responsibility, the directors set standards for internal control aimed at reducing the risk of error or loss in a cost-effective manner. The standards include the proper delegation of responsibilities within a clearly defined framework, effective accounting procedures and adequate segregation of duties to ensure an acceptable level of risk. These controls are monitored throughout the Group and all employees are required to maintain the highest ethical standards in ensuring the Group’s business is conducted in a manner that in all reasonable circumstances is above reproach. The focus of risk management in the Group is on identifying, assessing, managing and monitoring all known forms of risk across the Group.
While operating risk cannot be fully eliminated, the Group endeavours to minimise it by ensuring that appropriate infrastructure, controls, systems and ethical behaviour are applied and managed within predetermined procedures and constraints.
The directors are of the opinion, based on the information and explanations given by management that the system of internal controls provides reasonable assurance that the financial records may be relied on for the preparation of the Annual Financial Statements. However, any system of internal financial control can provide only reasonable, and not absolute, assurance against material misstatement or loss.
The directors have reviewed the Group’s cash flow forecast for the year ending 30 June 2018 and, in the light of this review and the current financial position, they are satisfied that the company and Group have or have access to adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.
The Annual Financial Statements of the Group and company, which have been prepared on the going concern basis, were approved by the directors on 20 September 2017 and were signed on its behalf by:
