Notes to the Consolidated Accounts

The financial statements are prepared in accordance with the guideline for annual reporting 640 “not-for-profit organisations” of the Dutch Accounting Standards Board.

The activities of MADE-BY and its subsidiaries primarily consist of continuous improvement and transparency about the social, economic and environmental conditions throughout the whole supply chain of their licensees, with the vision of making sustainable fashion common practice.

Group Structure
Stichting MADE-BY Label (the Netherlands) is the holding foundation of a group of organisations. In April 2008 MADE-BY Label Deutschland GmbH was formally registered in Freiburg, Germany (moved to Düsseldorf in spring 2013); and in December 2008 MADE-BY Label UK Limited in London, the United Kingdom. In accordance with article BW 2:407 the organisation is not held to consolidate the accounts.

Proforma Consolidation
Financial information relating to subsidiaries within the group is included in the proforma consolidated financial statements of Stichting MADE-BY Label (the Netherlands). The proforma consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the accounting principles regarding valuation and profit recognition of Stichting MADE-BY Label (the Netherlands), but are not audited. However, MADE-BY’s financial accounts in the UK and the Netherlands are audited. In the UK this is done by Fisher Phillips and in the Netherlands by Ernst & Young. Full financial reports and auditor statements for these accounts are publicly available. The assets and liabilities and the results of these foundations are fully consolidated, intercompany relationships and transactions are eliminated.
