Helping Charities to implement SORP

Internal Financial Controls Guidelines for Charities - Crowe Horwath Ireland

Crowe Horwath in association with The Wheel are offering a practical session on guiding community & voluntary organisations in the implementation of the Statement of Recommended Practice for Financial Reporting by Charities (SORP) guidelines.

The Charities Regulatory Authority is expected to issue clear requirements in relation to governance practice, activity and financial reporting, all of which will help to increase transparency and accountability.

It seems increasingly likely that these requirements will include the adoption of the Statement of Recommended Practice for Financial Reporting by larger Irish charities (SORP).

Now is the time to start preparing…
