Steering a charity's finances can be one of the most challenging responsibilities you will face in the sector – not least because of the complexities and legal obligations that you can easily miss. The format of this handbook makes it a quick and clear read, so that even if you are new to charity finance you will swiftly gain confidence and knowledge.

Covering charity accounting across all four nations of the UK, this fifth edition has been comprehensively updated to incorporate the most recent developments in charity law and financial regulation. Some of the major updates included in this edition are:

•New rules for accounts filed in 2017 onwards using the Charities SORP (FRS102), following withdrawal of the FRSSE SORP
•Increases to the audit thresholds for charities in England/Wales
•Latest layouts for receipts and payments accounts
•Complete new charity accounting framework in Northern Ireland
•References to legislation for Scotland, Northern Ireland, England/Wales
•Major changes to Gift Aid declarations and procedures
•Most recent guidance on charity-specific VAT
•Changes to fundraising regulation
•New glossary of all specialist terms used

Packed with useful examples throughout, this guide is suitable for voluntary sector staff and trustees with little or no accounting experience, accountants and professional advisors from other sectors seeking a rapid update on charity accounting, as well as students on third sector courses.
