Rugby Australia finalises 2019 financial accounts

by Rugby Australia

The Rugby Australia Board has signed off on the company’s 2019 financial accounts, following the completion of an audit by KPMG.

The financial report has been submitted to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) on Sunday, meeting the May 31 deadline for unlisted entities.

Rugby Australia interim CEO, Rob Clarke said: “We have cleared another important milestone as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 crisis with the finalisation of our 2019 accounts.

“We have been working very closely with KPMG to finalise the audit, the Directors conclude that the organisation is a going concern and KPMG has issued an unqualified audit opinion. The audited and signed accounts have been submitted today, and our 2019 Annual Report will be published in the coming days.

“This week we will also announce the first phase of an organisational restructure of the Rugby Australia business which we are in the final stages of completing,” said Clarke.
