The 2013 financials are now available the foundation website see
http://www.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Finances/Balance_Sheet_2013 and
http://www.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Finances/Income_2013 and not just via
companies house.


- there is a £3 difference to our 2013 tax filing (for those that
bothered to look at it) due to the corporation tax for 2012 once being
stated as 4,708 and once as 4,711. I can't reconcile those numbers at
this point in time.

- the P&L / Income statement was lifted from the filing and is
structured slightly different than in previous years. Besides the
superficial changes, our accountant has moved our main operational costs
from "Cost of Sales" to G&A. The reasoning is that we don't actually
derive any income from what we consider our core business and that it is
simply overhead from an accounting point of view (I can't really argue
with that).

- the balance sheet does not break down cash over our various accounts
(because the tax filing does not do that), as soon as our accountant is
available again, I'll split the numbers up.

- SOTM Tokyo was partially run though the books of the local organizers.
This did not effect the resulting surplus in the OSMF books which is
subject to 20% UK corporation tax (roughly £4700) and was in line with
previous years
