Table 3 shows the accounts for the General Fund (GF) and Table 4 compares these accounts for the triennium with the budget approved by the Beijing General Assembly. This fund carries the income and expenditure related to the IUCr's administration and its regular scientific activities other than publications. The income has two main sources, the subscriptions from Adhering Bodies and the interest income from investments and bank accounts. The subscriptions from Adhering Bodies are based on the unit contribution, which was CHF 890 for 1993 and CHF 1000 for 1994 and for 1995. The total number of membership units was 148 for each year, while the budget was based on 138 for 1993, 140 for 1994 and 142 for 1995. The yield from investments exceeds the budgeted amount by CHF 319601. The yield from investments includes the release from valuation reserve in 1994 and movement in market value in 1995 which resulted from the change to stating investments at market value from 1994 mentioned above.
The administration expenses for the journals are calculated as 30% of the general administration costs of the IUCr, including the work of the Executive Secretary and his office and of the General Secretary and Treasurer. The Executive Committee met annually, while the Finance Committee held two meetings in 1993, one in 1994 and two in 1995. The cost of these meetings varies, as seen from Table 3, depending on the location and the circumstances. In Table 4, they are included in the expenses of administrative meetings, together with the costs of the IUCr representatives on other bodies. The expenses of scientific meetings in Table 4 include the travel grants and other expenses for the Beijing Congress in 1993, the cost of the 1995 meeting of the Programme Committee for the Seattle Congress, the expenses of the non-publishing Commissions and in connection with STAR/CIF, Newsletter expenses in 1993, financial support to meetings and schools and expenses incurred in connection with the IUCr /FIZ Agreement. The financial support for young scientists attending meetings and schools is charged to the Research and Education Fund, see Table 13.
