More about mergers

Anne-Marie Piper completes her overview on the subject of charity mergers In the last issue I began this overview of charity mergers. I explained the duties of charity trustees in relation to mergers and then examined the various steps in the merger process including the exploratory discussions and preliminary checks, the “in-principle” decision to merge and the process known as due diligence and at some of the issues that it can throw up including staff, pensions, VAT and material contracts.

Yonni Abramson explains how to make your charity more cost-efficient by rental restructuring History teaches us that declines in charitable donations lag any collapse in the broader economy by at least 12 months.

The proposals announced in the Budget 2009 draw on Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in the US (SOX), and the obligations therein to establish and monitor internal controls over financial reporting processes.

An animal welfare charity has recently obtained HMRC agreement that managers resident on sites where animals are housed overnight are eligible for a tax exemption in respect of living accommodation provided.
