Financial report 2019 candidate
Financial Report 2019
This is a release candidate for the financial report of Vereniging Technologia Incognita for 2019. It has not yet been approved by the members.
At the start and end of the year, our bank accounts held the following amounts:
|ABN AMRO (membership)||€10453.49||€9092.53||€-1360.96|
|ABN AMRO (savings)||€583.04||€583.04||€0.00|
|Rent Deposit (previously called Collateral)||€2802.21||€2802.21|
|Owed member contributions||€0.00|
|Outstanding Triodos deposits||€139.00|
|AOT (Ahead of time) paid rent||€0.00||€0.00|
|Liquid assets||Short term debt|
|Checking||€10453.49||€9092.53||Credits in drinks||€0.00||€73.86|
The 'Owed Member Contributions' is set to zero in this report. This is due to it being hard to calculate, retroactively. Work has been done to have this different for the 2020 report. It is included here simply to reflect that this item exists and should be listed. For the 2020 report, we would have an estimate for a write-off for the past, and the 2021 report would have accurate numbers.
The difference between our equity at the start and the end of the year is €-2276.81 = €-11586.02 + €-9309.21. This difference can be separated into two components:
* the negative result between our income and expenses from our bank accounts (see 'Income' chapter below) totalling €-1325.28 * the negative result of loss in income of drinks not being paid, owed membership dues, drinks stock, etc. totalling €-951.53
The sum of these two components gives the loss in equity over 2019: €-2276.81 = €-1325.28 + €-951.53.
The collateral of €2802.21 is the deposit that the association has paid to our landlord.
The €73.86 in "Credits in drinks" are receipts that had been provided to us but had not yet been paid to the person in question in 2019; this has since been rectified.
The €139.00 in "Outstanding Triodos deposits" is an amount that we expected to have had deposited into our account, but has not actually been deposited. In total 264 euro does not seem to fully match specific deposits, but on the other hand 125 euro has been deposited that also does not match any specific deposit requests. So we are stating 139 euro as "unaccounted" for. It is also possible that this number simply exists because of typo in the emails that were sent (and are the only trace of) counting the money from the safe.
The €1926.00 is based on the people that were a member at the end of the year and had a fob.
The €1632.00 is the amount of money that was paid in advance by members, that is, membership for 2020 that was paid ahead of time.
AOT (ahead-of-time) rent refers to rent payments made by the association in year X for year X+1. We did not do this in 2019, but for consistency with previous reports in years where this was done, we include the entry here.
We discovered 65 euro worth of drinks payment transfered to the association account, rather than the drinks account.
Total income over 2019 was €21606.84, comprised of the following income categories:
|Category||Paid into ABN||Paid into Triodos||Total|
Total expenses over 2019 add up to €-22932.12, comprised of the following expense categories:
|Category||Paid from ABN||Paid from Triodos||Total|
The difference of our income (on the bank accounts) and our expenses gives the amount we gained or lost on the bank accounts for the year. In the case of 2019, we lost €1325.28. The total loss over 2019, however, is €-2276.81, see the equity loss calculation from the "Balances overview" section, above.

Data integrity checks
All the following values should be equal:
- Our reported difference on the bank accounts, €1325.28, expressed with the appropriate sign: €-1325.28
- The sum of the balance changes over all accounts: €-1360.96 + €0.00 + €35.68 == €-1325.28
- The difference of our income and our expenses: €21606.84 + €-22932.12 == €-1325.28
- The difference between activa at the end of the year and activa at the beginning of the year, with the "outstanding triodos deposits" subtracted out (as they are "virtual" and not liquid): €13281.07 - €14467.35 - €139.00 == €-1325.28
In 2019, 24 new members joined. Before 2020, board tooling did not track the date that former members deactivate their membership, so it's not clear how many people ended their membership in 2019.
Some members pre-pay several months of membership fees at a time. This affects our forecasting, since these payments should not be counted on for monthly income during the period that was pre-paid.
Before 2020, board tooling didn't keep track of expected membership dues per member, so the unit for these numbers is simply "number of months pre-paid" instead of "amount of money pre-paid". However, in the balance we have a good indicator of how much that ends up being.

Studying the income the association recieves for drinks, it has become clear that a lot of the drinks we buy have left the space without being paid for. This could happen by people taking from the fridge or crates without paying, or from taking money from the box.
The above conclusion is easily reached by noting that we have ordered drinks from multiple places over 2019, but that the expected income from only our DorstLust orders is already higher than the total income recieved over all drinks the association purchased.
We can confidently state that this discrepancy does not come from the process of purchasing drinks from suppliers/shops.
Studying the DorstLust invoices leads us to conclude that around €2706.00 of income should have reached us from the sales of those drinks based on current prices, leading to €973.72 profit over those drinks. Instead, he association made €282.08 in profit on drinks over the entire year, over all the drinks.
It is unlikely that 2019 ended with a lot of drinks in stock; as the last order had been on 2019-10-01 and average order-frequency is around 1.5 months throughout the year.
It is also worthy to note that per transaction to the triodos account, the association pays € 0,15. We've seen there are people paying every seperate drink per bank, thus resulting the association loses € 0,15 per drink. This results in lower profit-margins still, seen that way.
Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that these drinks had been sold at cost-price, with no profit margin.
It would lead to the following conclusion:
- €2378.66 total has been spent on buying drinks
- €1732.28 was spent on drinks ordered from DorstLust
- €2706.00 was expected from all we bought from DorstLust
- €646.38 was expected from all the other drinks, if we had sold them at cost-price.
- This makes a total of €3352.38 that would've come in, even if we had assumed to make no profit at all over non-dorstlust drinks.
- €2660.74 is what actually came in.
This is €691.64 less then what was expected to come in. This represents a lower bound for the drinks deficit. An upper bound can be calculated by assuming the profit margin on non-Dorstlust drinks is equal to the profit margin of the Dorstlust drinks. This gives an upper bound of €1053.61.
Therefore, the assumed drinks deficit is somewhere between €691.64 and €1053.61.
Rent was paid 12 times in 2019. There was no ahead-of-time rent payment in 2018 nor was there any pre-payment for 2020.
|Rent month||Amount||Paid date|
Due to a banking glitch at ABN Amro,, rent was paid twice on 2019-01-02. This was discovered in 2019-05 when the 2019-06 rent was being paid. The treasurer requested for the duplicate payment to be applied to rent for 2019-06, which Urban Resort (our landlord) did. We paid rent twice in September as we forgot to pay rent in August.
