7 Thomas Cook Group plc SCHEDULE TO THE AUDIT COMMITTEE TERMS OF REFERENCE GROUP POLICY FOR PROVISION OF NON-AUDIT SERVICES BY THE EXTERNAL AUDITORS (Approved by the Audit Committee on 13 May 2009) 1. The FRC s Guidance on Audit Committees (formerly known as the Smith report) recommends that procedures be adopted for non-audit services provided by external auditors to ensure that such matters do not impair the judgement or independence of the auditors. This policy is to assist the Group s control over such matters. 2. Any material non-audit services require approval of the Group Audit Committee. This requirement applies to the Group and all its subsidiaries. Furthermore, any large consultancy contract should normally be put to tender, unless there are strong reasons to override such a step. 3. Under The (Companies Disclosure of Auditor Remuneration and Liability Limitation Agreements) Regulations 2008 ( the Regulations ), the Group is required to disclose the auditors remuneration in its annual Report and Accounts split two ways between: fees receivable for the audit and fees receivable for other services. Audit Fees are defined as the remuneration received for the audit of the financial statements of the Group and its subsidiaries. Fees for Other Services fall into ten categories as set out in Schedule 2 to the Regulations 1 and include the audit of regulatory returns, review of interim results, due diligence work for acquisitions, general accounting advice including application of new accounting standards, tax compliance support, assurance reviews on compliance and controls, and any work in connection with listing particulars and public documents. 4. This approval policy applies to all items classified as Fees for Other Services, with the exception of the audit of regulatory returns and the review of interim results. 5. For this purpose, materiality is set as cost in excess of 50,000 before VAT and expenses (or the Euro equivalent). The threshold for large consultancy contracts to go for tender is set at cost in excess of 100,000 before VAT and expenses (or the Euro equivalent). These levels should apply whether a discrete project or linked series of assignments. Any fees to be based upon a contingency fee basis would require approval, irrespective of size. 6. Where there is an urgent need to engage the auditors for non-audit services above the lower threshold, the Group Chief Financial Officer can discuss and agree the matter with the Chairman of the Group Audit Committee and report their conclusion at the next Committee meeting. 7. The cost of all non-audit services, both above and below the materiality threshold, will be reported to the Group board half yearly. This report will list all such items on a 12 month basis, to allow board members to monitor the cumulative result. 8. When assessing the non-audit services for approval the Group Audit Committee will take the following into consideration: Page 7 of 9

8 whether the skills and experience of the audit firm make it the most suitable supplier of the non-audit service; whether there are safeguards in place to ensure that there is no threat to the objectivity or independence in the conduct of the audit resulting from the provision of such services by the external auditor. the nature of the non-audit services, the related fee levels and the fee levels individually and in aggregate relative to the audit fee; and the criteria which govern the compensation of the individuals performing the audit. 9. Current ethical guidance suggests that the Committee would in principle be unlikely to give approval for non-audit services which would result in: the external auditor auditing its own firm s work; the external auditor making management decisions for the Company; a mutuality of interest being created; or the external auditor being put in the role of advocate for the Company. 10. For information, the Group s auditors have also confirmed that their own policy excludes them providing the following services for audit clients: internal audit; secondments to senior position that involve any decision making; valuations that will be included in the financial statements; or litigation support. 1 The categories set out in Schedule 2 of the Regulations are: 1. The auditing of accounts of associates of the company pursuant to legislation (including that of countries and territories outside Great Britain) 2. Other services supplied pursuant to such legislation 3. Other services relating to taxation 4. Services relating to information technology 5. Internal audit services 6. Valuation and actuarial services 7. Services relating to litigation 8. Services relating to recruitment and remuneration 9. Services relating to corporate finance transactions entered into or proposed to be Page 8 of 9

9 entered into by or on behalf of the company and any of its associates. 10. All other services. Page 9 of 9
