An annual report is a document a company presents at an annual general meeting for approval by its shareholders, or a charitable organization presents its trustees. The report is made up of reports, which may include the following:
Auditor's report on corporate governance
Corporate governance statement of compliance
Statement of directors' responsibilities
Invitation to the company's AGM
as well as financial statements.
The annual report has long been considered the jewel in most printing companies portfolios. This is because their customers who file this document consider it to be one of the most prestigious publications they produce and usually a considerable amount of creative effort and resources are put into this report.
