Charity Briefing - spring 2014

14th May 2014

Charity Briefing is our regular newsletter to keep charities and not for profit organisations up to date on recent news and developments. In this issue we look at the recent consultation on the extension of the Charity Commission’s powers as well as the new information the Commission requires as part of the 2014 annual return, the requirement to include a Strategic Report in a charity’s Trustees Annual Report, fraud and suspect donations, charity tax and VAT matters arising from the latest Budget and guidance issued by OSCR for charity trustees on the referendum on independence for Scotland.

For further information on this briefing please contact Kathryn Burton, editor of the Charities Briefing.
