New Accounting Regulations for all Charities

24 Jul 2011 Denise Copeland    Last updated: 13 Aug 2014

Despite the delay over the establishment of the Register of Charities, the DSD is currently working on preparing further secondary legislation and hopes to launch draft accounting regulations for consultation in September/October this year. 

NICVA’s Governance and Charity Advice team will be holding consultation workshops on the new financial requirements for charities. Dates will be publicised on nicva.org when the consultation document is launched.

The Department is also in the process of drafting the Fourth Commencement Order to the Charities Act, which should see the transfer of powers, in relation to the transfer or disposal of charity land, from the Department to the Charity Commission. It is anticipated that this will become effective sometime in September or October.
