MANCHESTER M1 1FN

An introductory day to charity finance, looking at the differences between charity accounts and corporate reporting. It focuses not only on the preparation of information but the interpretation of accounts for those who are charged with reading and understanding them.

The course will aim to impart some key facts but use interactive case studies to get all participants involved.

We will close the day with an update on topical matters and invite any attendees to inform us in advance of items they would like to see covered. We will do our best to tailor this final session to the interests of those attending.

What will individuals gain from attending the course?
People should gain an awareness of how to prepare and review a set of charity accounts and the key items to look out for.  They should obtain knowledge of the key risk factors when planning charitable activities and how to facilitate a discussion of key policies at Board level.

What skill level is this course? 
Staff and trustees with some financial knowledge who are new to charity accounting, those coming back to charity accounting who would like a refresher, those working in charity finance who are moving more towards the preparation of statutory accounts.
