Total income: £27.3m for the year ending 31 March 2008, compared with £21.6m for the year before.
Highest salary: One employee was paid between £140,000 and £150,000, including pension contributions.
Reserves policy: Unrestricted reserves are held to make sure the charity can maintain its current level of grant commitments should there be a temporary fall in income. The charity aims to hold unrestricted reserves equivalent to approximately two months' charitable spending. At year-end, unrestricted reserves were £647,000.
Fundraising costs: The charity spent £370,000 on generating voluntary income, which was £3.5m. This gave the charity a fundraising ratio of 11p in the pound. The previous year's ratio was 10p in the pound.
Pension: The charity closed its defined-benefit pension scheme to new entrants in 2005. Because of an actuarial deficit the charity agreed to pay £1.8m into the scheme in 2007 and increase the employer's contribution to 18.5 per cent from April 2008. After the defined-benefit scheme was closed, the charity introduced a defined-contribution pension for new employees.
How performance is communicated: The website, www.motability.co.uk, describes the work of the charity and contains the trustees' report and accounts, which have a description of achievements for the year and the aims for 2008/09. Performance indicators show how the charity is performing compared with previous years.
The charity says: "Income rose by £5.7m, mainly as a result of increased grant funding from the Department for Work and Pensions. A substantial amount to support grant-making is raised by the fundraising team. During the year, the charity received income of £2.5m from the Motability Tenth Anniversary Trust to fund grants."
