RNIB chief executive criticises ‘arrogance’ of MPs who think charities must learn from private sector 1
Lesley-Anne Alexander, chief executive of RNIB, yesterday said she had a “struggle with the arrogance” of politicians, including the minister for civil society, who believe charities must learn from private companies.
The Charity Commission and Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator launched a search today for new members of their joint Sorp Committee, to provide advice on best financial practices within the charity sector.
Sudhir Singh and Simon Erskine look at the implications of two new consultations on the accounting of charitable companies, and how these create further uncertainies over the new Sorps.
Congratulations to the RNLI - this only goes to prove that working on long term (and short term for that matter) legacies really pays dividends in the end.
The two new Statements of Recommended Practice (Sorps) that will apply to all charities that prepare accruals accounts for years beginning on or after 1 January 2015, have been published today.
The process of recruiting charity trustees is “too opaque” and needs reform, the outgoing head of accountancy policy at the Charity Commission has said in an interview with Charity Finance magazine.
Ray Jones steps down as head of accountancy policy at the Charity Commission this summer. He tells David Ainsworth how financial reporting has changed since 1992.
