One of the biggest challenges for anyone faced with responsibility in a charity is getting to grips with the rules on finance, particularly all the special requirements under charity law. In a format short enough to read in a couple of evenings, this handbook covers the key principles in charity accounting and finance.

Updates in this third edition:
- New 2009 financial thresholds for charity accounts in England and Wales
- Accounting regime under the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008
- Revised thresholds for Scottish charities taking effect in 2011
- Guidance on charity tax and gift aid updated from Budget 2010
- All VAT explanations updated for 20% standard rate of VAT from 2011
- Issues for charity accounting as UK standards and international financial reporting standards converge
- Updated contact addresses
- Many new implementation dates added.

Containing plenty of helpful examples, this guide is suitable for voluntary sector workers with little or no accounting experience, those from other sectors seeking a rapid update on charity accounting and students on third sector courses.

ĎEssential reading for anyone who needs a rapid but thorough introduction to charity accounting.í
Helen Turnbull ACA, Hon. Treasurer, ChildHope
