Arts & Culture Briefing - summer 2014

20th August 2014

We welcome you all to the first edition of haysmacintyre's Arts and Culture briefing, which we hope that you find informative and a useful point of reference for your organisation. 

In this first edition, we comment on the recent Arts Council funding announcements for National Portfolio Organisation’s, which came as no particular shock to the sector. We supplement this with an introductory comment on the new Theatre Tax Relief legislation, which is bound to be of interest to many of you.

We also include a guest article from Rambert who have recently moved to their new home on the South Bank. This has been a very successful move, and the article focuses on the challenges that were faced in continuing to run an organisation and attract funding for its continuing operations whilst at the same time attract capital revenues for the build and move. We are grateful to Zoe Crick, Development Director at Rambert, for her insights.

Finally, we look at the recently published Charity SORP. Whilst a lot has been written about the new SORP, in practice the changes are largely cosmetic. We do however draw readers attention to those areas which we feel will impact on Arts and Culture charities the most, and in particular the enhanced disclosures for going concern.

For further information on this briefing please contact Richard Weaver, editor of the Arts and Culture Briefing.
