Charities: Current Accounting and Scrutiny Issues

The aim of this course is to keep all those involved in the preparation and scrutiny of charity accounts up to date with developments and common problem areas.

Charities: Approaching the Charity Audit

The course is designed to identify key areas associated with charity audits for those who have so far had limited exposure to this specialist area. It reviews practical problems encountered by charity auditors in applying current legislative, accounting and auditing requirements.

Charities: Approaching the Difficult Accounting Areas

The course is designed to review some of the more complex accounting areas with which charities have to deal. While there are a number of areas where charity accounts are very similar to those of other entities, the Charities SORP has some very specific and very different approaches which can be a cause for confusion and mistakes.
