2019-6-12 8:00:00 2019-6-12 10:00:00 Europe/London Kent Good Governance Charity Forum 2019

Hosted by MHA MacIntyre Hudson, Brachers and CAF Bank

In collaboration with our colleagues at Brachers and CAF Bank we have formed the Kent Good Governance Charity Forum with a view to helping charities and not for profit organisations throughout the county understand the Charity Governance Code and changes they can make to develop high standards of governance as well as share experiences and good practice with other similar organisations.

The new Charity Governance Code is a practical aid to assist charities, large and small, in ensuring that their operational practice and governance is fit for purpose in the challenging environment we all face today.

As legal, financial, regulatory and accounting partners, our focus is to use different pillars of the new code to look at practical solutions for issues all charities face. This is not about gold plating the rules, it is about using innovation to make things work for you.

Speakers

Alyson Howard, Not for Profit Partner at MHA MacIntyre Hudson - Alyson will chair the event and will use some recent examples of Charity Commission Case Reports to show where governance failings have resulted in serious problems in a charity.

Christopher Eriksson-Lee, Partner and Head of Private - client at Brachers Chris will focus of risk management and financial sustainability and will discuss exposure to potential liability of charity trustees and the limits to exposure through charity structure. Chris will also share tips on protecting against liability for charity trustees.

James Moon, Lead Advisory Manager at CAF - James will explore the role of trustees in decision making on fundraising. He will highlight the Governance code’s expectations of charities, large and small, and how this often translates in practice. And share insights from CAF’s experience of helping charities strengthen their fundraising strategy and governance.

Sue Rathmell, VAT Director at MHA MacIntyre Hudson - Sue will examine the VAT treatment of common income streams for charities including grants, donations, fundraising events and business activities. She will discuss how the VAT treatment of income impacts on recovery of VAT incurred on a charity’s costs. Sue will also give an update on what charities need to do to comply with Making Tax Digital for VAT.
