Sayer Vincent, the award-winning firm of charityauditors and chartered accountants,is running a series of seminars and new drop-in surgeries for delegates attending this year’s Charity Accountants’ Conference.
Delegates can book these sessions and receive updates and expert and confidential advice from representatives from Sayer Vincent on any taxation and accounting issues or obtain legal advice from experts from charity law firm, Veale Wasbrough and Vizards (VWV). The free fifteen minutes drop in sessions are available between 9.00 – 10.00am and 08.30 – 09.30 am on 21st and 22nd September.
Jonathan Orchard, Partner at Sayer Vincent said, “In addition to our full conference line up, we wanted to give delegates the opportunity to speak to us or VWV directly for advice on any issues affecting them so they can determine next steps.”
The Charity Accountants Conference is the largest residential conference for charity finance professionals in the UK and provides delegates with key updates on legal, taxation and accounting issues affecting the sector and their organisations.
Due to delegate demand, several legal workshops are being held this year, led by VWV Partners Kathy Halliday and Con Alexander.
On the first day, there will be a workshop on Employment Law, as well as a session on Intellectual Property, that will enable delegates tounderstand how to protect their trademarks, copyright and intellectual property rights. There is also a session on data protection focusing on how organisations can prepare for the new GDPR.
On day two, the sessions will cover the Code of Good Governance, Charity Law and there will be a session on how to review your constitution and governance.
Employment law Partner, Kathy Halliday said, “A number of legal changes have recently been introduced or are in the pipeline including gender pay gap reporting, the GDPR regulations, the Modern Slavery Act, as well as other issues such as the Taylor Review into modern working practices. The employment landscape is changing and I will be running informative and practical sessions to help delegates gain a better understanding of how to navigate the regulatory landscape.”
Con Alexander, Head of Charities and Partner at VWV added, “I am looking forward to the drop-in sessions and to running workshops to update delegates on the new fundraising regulation, the recently updated Code of Governance and its implications for trustees and senior management, as well as discussing when organisations should review their constitution to ensure it is fit for purpose, amongst other issues.”
Delegates can choose to book the two-day residential package, attend the conference as non-residents or attend for just one day. For the full conference programme and to book your place, go to: https://www.dsc.org.uk/event/charity-accountants-conference-2017-2/ .
