Charity Annual Reporting Requirements - Webinar

The Department for Communities has tasked NICVA to help charities who may be experiencing difficulty completing their annual monitoring return or struggling with compiling and uploading their required reports and accounts.

The Governance and Charity Advice team is more than willing to help charities with this. We have already assisted many charities with their annual returns, required reports and accounts and have noted some charities do not fully understand what is required. We have therefore held two free webinars explaining the process.

 A video of the material presented in these webinars can be found at the link below. The video, which lasts for just under an hour, covers the following topics:
• completing the annual monitoring return.
• the content of Trustee's Annual Reports
• the requirements for annual accounts
• the requirement to have annual accounts independently examined or audited

We hope you find the video useful and would welcome any feedback you may have on it.
