Table of contents
Issue 64 June 2019Issue 64 includes material on:
- The latest Charity Commission information sheet on additional governance disclosure requirements from 1 January 2019 under the Companies (Miscellaneous Reporting) Regulations 2018.
- Updated worked example of ABC Charity to a 2019 year-end in Division G (Public accountability and reporting) and reviewed and slightly updated guidance text.
- New guidance for trustees on the proper management of conflicts of interests and conflicts of loyalties issued by the Charity Commission.
- Gift Aid – making it easier to identify donors as taxpayers. Charities are encouraged to change their Gift Aid processes to collect full forenames if they do not already do so.
