This book has been fully updated in 2015, by the expert charities team at Price Bailey, led by Helena Wilkinson. It now deals with the presentation and disclosure requirements of new UK GAAP and the charity SORPs for periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015.

With so many major changes to the standards as well as legislative developments it is essential, in order to prepare or audit charity accounts efficiently, to have an easy reference book. As part of the popular and well established CCH Preparing series, this book fulfils that need for practitioners and those working within charities alike.

The book includes example accounts, explanations, checklists and more, to ensure everything you need for the preparation of accounts is easily found and understood.
