The Charity Commission has updated its guidance for trustees on reserves. In its new quarterly CC News (no. 53, April) it also looks at “managing financial difficulties” and provides updated guidance on Gift Aid.
Organisations needing help with financial management locally should contact Volunteering Kirklees which hosts surgeries for community and voluntary organisations run by WYCAS (www.wycas.org.uk).
West Yorkshire Accounting Services also offer training and auditing services. They receive some support from Kirklees Council.
