b] increase in sales held in Malaysia plus great bargains and great deals offered.

Review of bank reconciliation
Reviewed bank reconciliations and traced bank balances to shopping receipts and bank statements. Please refer to
Circularisation of bank confirmation
Bank confirmation sent and balance checked to ATM machine.
No petty cash count be done as the amount is below materiality level.
Vouched to deposits placed with licensed bank. Interest rationalisation done but amount can't be utilised within next 2 years.
Most transactions relates to payment (monthly bills) and sales (major business deals: Cxxxx, Midvalley, One Utama, The Curve, KLCC). No significant exception noted.
We have noted that the amount spent has rocketed sharply as compared to last year but amount is set off with relatively ok in the side income earned. Based on the workdone, much of the amount are related to expenses incurred for the engagement, the Big Day and additional investments made on Cxxxx.
It is advisable to make further investment in deposit or to generate more sales in 2008, in order to gain back the positive portion of bank balances (Maybank Wadiah & CIMB)
Cash and bank balances are fairly stated as at 31.12.2007
