Audited Financial Statements

Qualified Opinion

We have audited the financial statements of RAMA IX ART MUSEUM FOUNDATION, which comprise of the statement of financial position as at December 31, 2020, and the statement of income and expenditure and statement of change in fund's equity for the year then ended, and notes to the financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies.

In our opinion, except for the effects of the matter described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion paragraph, the accompanying financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of RAMA IX ART MUSEUM FOUNDATION as at December 31, 2020, and its financial performance for the year then ended, in accordance with Thai Financial Reporting Standards for Non-Publicly Accountable Entities.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

The Foundation's art collections are carried in the statement of financial position as at December 31, 2020 amount of Baht 56.21 million has over presented and surplus an asset revaluation amount of Baht 28.93 million from the revalued amount, which constitutes a departure from Thai Financial Reporting Standard for Non Publicly Accountable Entities. Therefore, our opinion on the financial statement of the current year is qualified in this regard. Due to the effects in the financial position as at December 31, 2020 and has an effect on the comparison amount of the current year and comparative amount. The Foundation's record indicate that had the Foundation carried the art collections at cost, the Foundation would have to record the reduction in value of art collection of Baht 28.93 million. Accordingly, art collections and surplus on assets revaluation would have been decreased in the same amount of Baht 28.93 million.

We conducted our audit in accordance with Thai Standards on Auditing. Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Foundation in accordance with the Federation of Accounting Professions Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statements, and our have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the requirements. We believe that the audit evidence I have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion.

Other Matter

The financial statements of RAMA IX ART MUSEUM FOUNDATION for the year ended December 31, 2019, were audited by another auditor, which constitutes from auditor report at March 31, 2020

Responsibility of Management for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in accordance with the Thai Financial Reporting Standards for Non-Publicly Accountable Entities, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the financial statements, management is responsible for assessing the Foundation's ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Foundation or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with Thai Standards on Auditing will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements.

As part of an audit in accordance with Standards on Auditing, We exercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control.

Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Foundation's internal control.

Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.

Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis of accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Foundation's ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in my auditor's report to the related disclosures in the financial statements or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of my auditor's report. However, future events or conditions may cause the Foundation to cease to continue as a going concern.

Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the financial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the financial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

We communicate with management regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.
