The auditors must certify proper authorization has been provided for these movements and they must vouch the recording of this movement. The auditors must certify that material amounts of reserves are categorisation under suitable headings. The capital redemption reserve fund and the share premium account need separate recognition and the aggregate amount should be shown also.
