Because of the inherent limitations of IFCoFR including the possibility ofcollusion or improper management override of controls material misstatements due to erroror fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections of any evaluation of the IFCoFRto future periods are subject to the risk that IFCoFR may become inadequate because ofchanges in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or proceduresmay deteriorate.
8. In our opinion the Company has in all material respects adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting and such internal financial controls overfinancial reporting were operating effectively as at 31st March 2020 based on thecriteria being specified by management.
