This workshop will cover:
- A basic introduction to charity statutory accounts and what they should contain.
- Audit or independent examination and what to expect/how to prepare.
- What are management accounts and how do we budget?
- The difference between 'should' and 'must' in good financial practise.
- Understanding reserves.
- A brief introduction to charity tax– the good (gift aid), the bad (corporation tax) and the ugly (VAT).
- Outsourcing your finance function – a waste of money or a good idea?
- Questions and other resources.
