The revised GAAP should have been applied to all Charities registered in England and Wales for at least year. 

However, reviews by the Charity Commission and monitoring units highlight accounting and external scrutiny issues which are being overlooked.  In addition to these matters, the Commission investigations continue to indicate abuse of charity assets and financial mismanagement.  There is also the matter that some charities do not file their annual report and financial statements within the required timescales.

In this webinar we will review recent changes in company law and the practical application of UK GAAP and the impact on incorporated and unincorporated charities.  We will also review the requirements for external scrutiny and the responsibilities of independent examiners.
