Delay in having our Annual Meeting
We have had to postpone our meeting. Finalising the accounts has been significantly affected by the change of accountant, following Yvette LeRoy’s retirement. Also, Covid, the purchase of the two apartments and our newly acquired monument historique status have also complicated matters, in particular concerning amortissements and our tax position. Our auditor, M. Nataf advises that we may be able to save a substantial amount of tax, so it would wise for us to wait and secure this advantage (the tax deadline is June 30). We have, however, set a revised date for our Annual Chaplaincy Church Meeting: Sunday, June 27, after the 11 a.m. Eucharist.
