Charity SORP template disclaimer

Charity Commission disclaimer for using SORP accounting templates.

MS Word documents and spreadsheet workbooks have been prepared using Microsoft Excel and Word 2003.

They have been saved in a format that has been successfully operated with Microsoft Excel 97 and OpenOffice.

The MS Word files and workbooks (and all the worksheets they contain) are provided to assist charities in complying with SORP.

While the Charity Commission has endeavoured to provide them in formats which will be generally usable with the above software, there may be various reasons why the files will not work on specific software, for example various add-ins have not been loaded. Accordingly, the Commission does not guarantee that the formats provided will always work.

The Commission has endeavoured to ensure that they do not contain programmes which are likely to interfere with the running of the recipient’s computer. However the user downloading them does so at his/her own risk and the Commission cannot accept liability for any damage or loss to the property of the user howsoever caused.

To the full extent allowed by law the Commission makes no warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, warranties that the contents are free of defects, of satisfactory quality, fit for a particular purpose or non-infringing.

The entire risk as to the quality, accuracy, and performance is with the user of the workbook. Should any part prove defective in any respect, the user (not the initial writer or any other contributor) assumes the cost of any necessary servicing, repair or correction.

This disclaimer of warranty constitutes an essential part of the users agreement in downloading and using these MS Word files and/or workbooks. No use of any of the MS Word files or workbook is authorised hereunder except under this disclaimer.
