Notes to the interim results

1.      Basis of preparation

The Company financial statements of IamFire plc have been prepared in accordance with international accounting standards in conformity with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006.

IFRS is subject to amendment and interpretation by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") and the IFRS Interpretations Committee and there is an on-going process of review and endorsement by the European Commission.

The financial statements are presented in GBP (£) and rounded to the nearest £. GBP is also the functional currency of the Company. The financial statements ae prepared under the historical cost convention.

The preparation of condensed interim financial information requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

In preparing these interim financial statements, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Company’s accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 April 2020.

Going concern

During the period ended 31 October 2020 the Company made a loss of £161,709 (2019: profit £123,435) and as at 31 October 2020 it had net current liabilities of £170,338 (2019: net current liabilities of £182,754). The operations of the Company are primarily financed from funds raised from share placings as it does not currently generate significant amounts of revenue.

The Directors do acknowledge that the dependence on obtaining finance leads to there being uncertainty regarding the Company’s going concern status, however, they believe the application of the going concern basis of preparation to be appropriate based on management prepared budgets and due to their confidence that further finance will be able to be obtained as required during the going concern period.

The Directors have made enquires and assessed the potential impact of the COVID-19 virus on the

Company. As such, whilst they acknowledge that COVID-19 could continue to have long lasting and significant impacts on the global economy, the Directors believe that the Company will be able to raise sufficient finance to meet their obligations as they fall due for a period of at least 12 months from the date of approval of the financial statements.

The Financial Statements do not include any adjustments that may be required should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
