As a third sector organisation it is vital that you manage your money with care and transparency. Depending on your organisation’s structure, there may also be specific rules and regulations that dictate how you must manage and prepare your accounts and accounting records. If your organisation is a charity, you can find a range of guidance on the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator’s (OSCR) website.
Your organisation's accounts will usually need some kind of externally scrutiny. This means having someone independent of your organisation review the accounts and provide verification that they are compliant. The type of external scrutiny you choose depends on your organisation’s structure, your governing document, gross income and net assets. We are able to offer Independent Examinations to smaller community groups and charities. For more information get in touch with Holly.
