Actual instances of malpractice are very rare, but it is good to be able to show that our practices are of a standard appropriate to a public organisation.

- To protect clergy, the Treasurer, Churchwardens etc from unfounded allegations of malpractice; and
- To provide simple and effective audit trails.
