Charity Reporting Event

Gauge NI, Harbinson Mullholland and Edwards & Co last week held a breakfast event at The Mac to look at the new charity reporting requirements which are coming into effect in 2016. 
It’s all change for charities across Northern Ireland this year, as the sector must now comply with new and different reporting obligations, required by the Charity Commission. Given that these reports can be easily accessed by the public, it’s even more crucial than ever that charities can tell their story and illustrate their impact on society.
For most, this is unchartered territory so it’s crucial that all those involved in the management and strategic direction of charities have a clear understanding of how best to embrace this new era of reporting.
It was a full house as many charity leaders came along to hear from three of Northern Ireland’s most recognised experts in the sector. Jenny Ebbage from Edwards & Co. provided a legal update on acting for the public benefit, charity trustees’ reporting duties and responsibilities including trustees' annual report, annual return and serious incident reporting. James Fair from Harbinson Mullholland discussed the new requirements around submitting accounts and how this can be used to tell the story of your charity. While Stephen McGarry from Gauge NI looked at how charities should report on their public benefit and ways to measure impact.
