Community Accounting Special Interest Group (CASIG)
Community accountancy services are not-for-profit organisations that help local voluntary and community organisations to manage their finances. The kind of assistance given ranges from payroll to bookkeeping and from financial planning to annual accounts. Community accountancy services are sometimes based within a local council for voluntary service (CVS) or equivalent, or as independent organisations in their own right.
The Community Accounting National network (CANn), which represented community accountancy services across the country for a number of years on matters of best practice guidance, policy and research, became part of CFG in 2014 as the Community Accounting Special Interest Group.
The group has an advisory panel made up of Community Accountants to support the work which includes a discussion group, online resources and an annual conference for Community Accountants.
If you are a member of CFG and provide Community Accounting Services, you can join the LinkedIn Group here.
Planning is underway for the Community Accounting Conference which will be early in 2016. Details will be available on the events pages of our website and promoted to members on the LinkedIn Group.
