SORP Consultation 2016 - Manchester

Wednesday, 9 Nov 2016, 13:00 - 16:30


On 4 May 2016 the Charity Commission for England and Wales and the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) published a research consultation on Charities Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) FRS 102.

The SORP FRS 102 is the guidance that charities accounts in the UK and the Republic of Ireland have to abide by and is based on the national reporting standard FRS 102 that was introduced January 2016. The consultation is being launched due to the expected review of FRS 102 next year by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC). The Charity Commission and OSCR are keen to ensure the FRS 102 works for charities, not just the for-profit sector.

The SORP consultation is an opportunity for CFG to engage with our members about the best way to preserve the SORP and ensure that it remains focused on advancing the public interest.

To help with this engagement, CFG will be holding four events across England to talk to our members about the SORP consultation. With a total of 200 places for members this is a perfect opportunity you to share your knowledge and expertise with our corporates of the SORP consultation.
