CIPFA South West supports first charity conference of its kind in Cornwall

14 July 2015

CIPFA South West recently ran a one day charities conference in Cornwall for trustees and finance staff, covering developments in accounting, pensions and gift aid, in collaboration with CAF Bank and Cornwall Community Accountancy Service (CCAS). 

 

The conference was the first of its kind for Cornwall’s charities and was well attended, with a wide range of local organisations represented at the event. CIPFA helped facilitate the day and delivered two sessions on the new Charities SORPs (Statement of Recommended Practice). Other sessions provided information on workplace pensions and automatic enrolment, the Gift Aid scheme and the Gift Aid Small Donations scheme.

 

The tailored programme was well received and CIPFA South West and CCAS are hoping to make this conference an annual fixture. Special thanks to Debbie Risborough of CCAS for making this event happen.
