This one-day workshop at Shelter, 4 Garrett Street, London, EC1Y 0TY, is the first of a series of eleven seminars that will be hosted by Sayer Vincent this year.

This first workshop is ideal for those who want an overview of charity accounting, the key stages in drafting a set of year-end accounts and tips on how to prepare for audit. Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions, learn from case studies and undertake practical exercises based on preparing accounts in accordance with SORP 2015.

Another session on the same subject will take place on 9th November 2017.

Jonathan Orchard, Partner, Sayer Vincent says, “We want to help our clients become more effective at achieving their mission and make finance and accounting accessible for the charity sector. Teaching and training are at the core at what we do, and our popular seminar series is designed to make our clients lives easier by providing them with the technical information they need to do some of the work themselves.
