Small charities financial resource, large charities payroll levy

Small charities finance

The Small Charities Finance Bulletin for April 2016 from Charity Finance Group covers a number of topics, including

  • Financial Sustainability issues and resources on Financial Sustainability.
  • Cash flows – why bother?, a forecasting template and case study on its use.
  • Top tips for developing your leadership skills.
  • Plus a few other resources, training update etc.

Apprenticeship Levy

The Apprenticeship Levy will apply to employers with a pay bill of £3m and over from April 2017, so few VoluntaryNews readers will need to worry about it. If this an issue of concern, Charity Finance Group’s blog article on the key things charities need to know about how the levy will work is useful.

The article also explains CFG’s concerns, which have been put before government.

Update: CFG now (22nd April) has an article ‘Apprenticeships Levy Update – Guidance for Charity Employers‘.
