An Introduction to Charity Accounting & Independent Examination – Leeds

This two-day course aims to introduce participants to the:

  • Principles of Charity Accounting and the form and content of charity accounts as required by the Charities SORP (FRS102)
  • Principles and practicalities of undertaking an Independent Examination and the Charity Commissions’ Directions to independent examiners

Participants will have little previous knowledge or experience in charity accounting but will be familiar with generally accepted accounting principles and reporting. They are likely to be qualified or experienced accountants and may have experience of auditing, but will be unfamiliar with independent examination.

The cost includes course notes, refreshments and lunch during both days.

Numbers are limited so do please book soon.
