Respected speakers from the sector will provide an introduction to charity accounts and guidance on income recognition and reserves. Tax sessions will discuss VAT (income and recovery), gift aid and a range of basic tax exemptions for charities.

This event will be chaired by Joanna Pittman, Partner at Sayer Vincent, and Chair of the ICAEW Charity Committee.

Advanced charity accounting and tax – 14 October 2021

Building on the fundamentals of charity accounting and tax, this half-day virtual event focuses on advanced topics of charity accounting and tax. It is designed for those who are experienced with charity accounting and tax, whether as a finance director of a charity, a trusted adviser/auditor or a charity trustee.

It will cover hot topics arising from the pandemic, going concern, reserves targets, trading subsidiaries and tax risk management.

This event will be chaired by Edward Finch, Partner at Buzzacott, and member of the ICAEW Charity Committee.

Charity Governance Update – 22 October 2021

This half-day virtual event will provide an update on charity governance for those acting as charity trustees or working with trustees, either as a finance professional or trusted adviser.

Expert speakers will provide guidance on the role of the treasurer, the governing document, trustee and director responsibilities, risk management, and the charity’s control environment.

This event will be chaired by Jill Halford, Partner at BDO, and member of the ICAEW Charity Committee.
