Preparing for 2015: registration, governance and accounting issues for Charities

27 August 8:15am - 12:15pm
Victoria University of Wellington, Government Buildings, Lecture Theatre 1, 15 Lambton Quay, Wellington.

The Centre for Accounting, Governance and Taxation Research is pleased to invite you to Seminar 3 of its Not-for-Profit Seminar Series:

Registered Charities must comply with the new reporting requirements under the Charities Act from 1 April 2015. Many organisations are reviewing their governance structures and the form of their charity registration in light of the new reporting requirements in order to ensure that these structures and arrangements fit well with their mission and that the ensuing reporting is relevant to all their stakeholders. In this seminar you will be given an update on the new requirements and hear from representatives of three organisations who are responding to the change in different ways.

This seminar will cover:

• The options, merits and drawbacks of single and group registrations with DIA Charities

• Challenges in developing an appropriate structure that meets members’ needs – and tips on how to overcome these

• Getting ready for the expected audit requirements as part of the structural and registration reconsiderations

• Evaluating discretionary and non-discretionary costs and options in developing costing systems to meet the structure of your organisation


Seminar fee $60
