We apologise for the delay in sending out our annual statements to members this year. This is due to the current situation, with many of our staff working remotely. We are still going ahead with issuing statements and this will contain the annual interest earned for your tax return. We are putting in place plans to send these out during May. We appreciate your patience during this time.
