At the heart of northern business since 1882

Charity accounts – current issues including the new SORP with Bill Telford

Date: 24 March 2015 13:30 to 16:30

Type: Audit Assurance and Financial Reporting, Course

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

Accounting for charities is subject to continual change.  Recent developments include legislative changes as well as regulatory developments. In particular the Charities SORP has been updated to reflect the changes introduced by FRS 102 and consequent changes to the FRSSE (which may well have been withdrawn by the date of the course!). This course will consider the practical impact in charity accounts that arise from these changes.  It will also address key auditing issues together with issues for reporting accountants.

Content will include:

  • Recent legal and regulatory developments and Charity Commission consultations and publications.
  • Planning for the new Charities SORP
  • The impact of changes in charity funding and public sector involvement on trustees’ reports and accounts
  • Charitable structures including Charitable Incorporated Organisations
  • Public benefit reporting
  • Reporting to the Charity Commission
