Interpreting Change – Winter 2016/17 Edition

Charity Winter 2017 Newsletter

Welcome to the winter edition of our charity and not-for-profit newsletter. This quarter, we are pleased to bring you all of the latest news and insights from the sector.
Last quarter, the government announced that the2016 Autumn Statement will be the last in an attempt to simplify the tax system. Yet with this, came several announcements that will affect organisations in the sector. As a result, this quarter, we bring to you the key highlights that pertain to charities, see page 8.

Emphasis on better governance seems to be a running theme for the year ahead and trustees and senior staff are forced to make changes that will boost the reputation of not-for-profits. This quarter we feature two articles that can help trustees better meet their internal and external obligations “Are you Compliant with the Latest Fundraising Provisions?” and “When Should Trustees get Paid?”.

Finally we feature two articles to help guide charities and not-for-profits with growth entitled “Digital for Charities: Mastermind or Recipe for Disaster” and “Crowdfunding: Is it Right for Me?”
We always welcome contributions. If you would like to contribute to our next edition, please get in touch.
