Company report [from Print source using OSCOLA]

Overview

A company report (or annual report) will have a corporate author. Tthe name of the organisation responsible for the report goes in the author position but need not be repeated as publisher. The date of publication will depend on accounting year.

Additional information, including a description of the document, a series number and any other details which may help the reader to locate the source should be referred to in parenthesis after the title.

A pdf version of a company report accessed via the Internet would be identical to a print version and referenced in the same way.
