Notes to the Financial Statements
for the Year Ended 31 March 2017

1. STATUTORY INFORMATION

George More and Company LLP is registered in Scotland. The LLP's registered number and registered office
address can be found on the General Information page.

2. ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of preparing the financial statements
These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the provisions of Section 1A "Small Entities" of Financial Reporting Standard 102 "The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland" and the requirements of the Statement of Recommended Practice, Accounting by Limited Liability Partnerships. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

Turnover
Turnover is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable, excluding discounts, rebates,
value added tax and other sales taxes. Turnover is attributable to the company's principal activity of criminal
defence lawyers.

Tangible fixed assets
Tangible fixed assets are initially measured at cost. Cost includes the original purchase price and costs directly
attributable to bringing the asset to its present location and into its present condition. After initial recognition,
tangible assets are measured at cost less any accumulated depreciation and any accumulated impairment
losses.

Depreciation is provided at the following annual rates in order to write off each asset over its estimated useful life
or, if held under finance lease, over the lease term, whichever is shorter.

Plant and machinery - 25% on reducing balance
Motor vehicles - Straight line over 6 years

The assets' residual values and useful lives are reviewed, and adjusted, if appropriate, at the end of each
reporting period. The effect of any change is accounted for prospectively.

Financial instruments
The company only enters into basic financial instrument transactions that result in the recognition of financial
assets and liabilities like trade and other debtors and payables, loans from banks and other third parties.

At the end of each reporting period, financial assets that are measured at cost are assessed for objective
evidence of impairment. If objective evidence of impairment is found, an impairment loss is recognised in the
Income Statement. If there is a decrease in the impairment loss arising from an event occurring after the
impairment was recognised the impairment is reversed. The reversal is such that the current carrying amount
does not exceed what the carrying amount would have been had the impairment not previously been recognised.
The impairment reversal is recognised in the Income Statement.

Financial assets are derecognised when (a) the contractual rights to the cash flows arising from the asset expire
or are settled, or (b) substantially all the risks and rewards of the ownership of the asset are transferred to
another party, or (c) control of the asset has been transferred to another party.

Financial liabilities are measured at amortised cost less any accumulated impairment losses. Financial liabilities
are derecognised when the liability is extinguished, that is when the contractual obligation is discharged,
cancelled or expires.

3. EMPLOYEE INFORMATION

The average number of employees during the year was 4 (2016 - 4 ) .
