Not for Profit Update – April 2020

Welcome to the latest Not for Profit Update from MHA Carpenter Box. 

As we put together this publication there is continuous developments on the spread of the COVID-19 virus bringing about increased uncertainties on the impact to businesses and organisations in the UK and around the world. As a ‘people business’ our priority is the health and welfare of our staff, clients and contacts. We are taking actions to help keep our staff healthy, while continuing to maintain our high levels of client service.

We feel that it is important to support our clients to fulfil their responsibilities at a time when many have beneficiaries with increased needs. So this month’s edition of eNews refers to the steps to consider for business planning in light of the COVID-19 outbreak as well as details on the Charity Finance Group Insolvency hotline should you be concerned about your financial sustainability.

We have also included some business as usual pieces such as an overview of the benefits of Internal Audit in the Not for Profit sector, as well updates on VAT on e-publications and reports from the Fundraising Regulator and Charity Commission.

For further information you can visit our Coronavirus Hub which contains guidance and updates to help support your organisation though this difficult time.
