The Department for Communities has tasked NICVA to help charities who may be experiencing difficulty completing their annual monitoring return or struggling with compiling and uploading their required reports and accounts.

The Governance and Charity Advice team here at NICVA is more than willing to help charities with this.   We have already assisted many charities with their annual returns, required reports and accounts and have noted some charities do not fully understand what is required.  We have therefore held two free webinars explaining the process.  A video of the material presented in these webinars can be found at the link below.  The video, which lasts for just under an hour, covers the following topics:

  • completing the annual monitoring return.
  • the content of Trustee's Annual Reports
  • the requirements for annual accounts
  • the requirement to have annual accounts independently examined or audited

We hope you find the video useful and would welcome and feedback you may have on it.

If you would like individual advice, please contact Michele Crilly on 0289087 7777 or email [email protected].  Michele is helping charities in the following Council areas: Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, Ards and North Down Borough Council, Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Belfast City Council, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Derry City and Strabane District Council, Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council, Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council
