Using the Charity SORP for Your Financial Reporting

The Charities Regulator is expected to issue new* requirements in relation to financial reporting soon, 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...

The timely event will assist community and voluntary organisations in meeting these requirements in the area of financial reporting.

Let our expert facilitator Roseanna O'Hanlon (see bio below) walk you through the process and unpack the detail of - and the many benefits to be derived from - SORP.

Attend this workshop to:

  • Understand how SORP will impact on charities and charity regulation
  • Learn more about the SORP guidelines
  • Understand what is involved in the implementation of SORP for charities.

*The Wheel has sought regular updates on the proposed amendments to the Charities Act that would allow the Charities Regulator to bring in their financial regulations for reporting under SORP and has been told that the legislation has not yet commenced going through the various stages required – it is intended that this should commence soon but the final timeline for the legislation passing all stages is still unknown. The Wheel has called for this legislation to be amended as a matter of priority in order that clarity and consistency can be brought to the format of reporting charity accounts.
