What you will learn
Charity annual reports and accounts are very different from those of companies in the 'for-profit' sector. This seminar will use case studies and real-life examples to provide an insight into the key aspects of a charity’s financial statements and link these back to the principles underpinning charitable status.
Focussing on the latest requirements and best practice it covers the key accounting treatments and disclosures that are unique to charities. It also looks at the frameworks for performing a charity audit or independent examination.
Who should attend
This introductory course is targeted at accountants and auditors with limited prior experience of charity accounts and also charity staff who are new to finance and statutory reporting. An understanding of general accounting principles is assumed.
