Assessed the appropriateness of the Reporting Criteria for Subject Matter Information.
Reviewed the Report for the appropriate presentation of the Subject Matter Information, including the discussion of limitations and assumptions relating to the data presented.
Limitations of our review
Our evidence gathering procedures were designed to obtain a ‘limited level’ of assurance (as set out in ISAE3000) on which to base our conclusions. The extent of evidence gathering procedures performed is less than that of a reasonable assurance engagement and therefore a lower level of assurance is provided.
Completion of our testing activities has involved placing reliance on Lidl’s controls
for managing and reporting Subject Matter Information, with the degree of reliance informed by the results of our review of the effectiveness of these controls. We have not sought to review systems and controls at Lidl beyond those used for the Subject Matter Information.
The responsibility for the prevention and detection of fraud, error and non-compliance with laws or regulations rests with Lidl management. Our work should not be relied upon to disclose all such material misstatements, frauds, errors or instances of non- compliance that may exist.
Based on the procedures we have performed and the evidence we have obtained, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the Subject Matter Information has not been prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with the Reporting Criteria, which were applied by management.
Our independence
We have implemented measures to comply with IFAC Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants1. We also adhere to the professional competence rules as articulated in the ISQC (UK & Ireland) 1: Quality control for firms that perform audits and reviews of financial statements and other assurance and related service engagements2. Accordingly, we maintain a comprehensive system of quality control including documented policies and procedures regarding compliance with ethical requirements and professional standards (including independence, and other requirements) as well as applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
