Strategy to address balance sheet weakness

Following a recent investigation by the Charity Commission into negative balance sheets held by charities, Kate Sayer of Sayer Vincent accountants has written a short article ‘Charity finance – Beyond the balance sheet to a financial strategy’.

She addresses the need for charities to have a financial strategy that integrates risk management and addresses pricing, cashflow, return on investment and maximising returns from all assets.
