What is a Statement of Account?
It is a template provided by the Independent Auditor to be completed and emailed to them every year when renewing QAS-Certification. It is not required for a first audit. Information includes total sales of QAS-Certified and non QAS-Certified carbon offsets over the prior 12 month period of approval (signed by a finance professional such as an accountant, auditor or bookkeeper), and also the credit retirement information to balance both offset accounts. This additional information must be provided within three months of the end of the relevant QAS certification period and is confidential between the Independent Auditor and the applicant. The QAS will not have access to it unless explicit permission is given by the applicant.
