We have lots of really useful material on the new reporting standards on our website for you to look at before starting to prepare your report. This is where you can find it all:
Step 1: Get familiar with the New Reporting Standards
This three minute video explains what the new reporting standards
require, and how these requirements relate to the Annual Return that you file with Charities Services each year. There is also explanatory material
on our website which provides an overview of the new reporting standards.
Step 2: Select your reporting tier
Charities now need to report under one of four tiers. Knowing your tier unlocks all the relevant information you need to report. Have a read through this information
on our website to help you decide which tier is most suitable for your charity to report under.
Step 3: Find information and tools relevant to your tier
Our website is organised so that most information for each tier can be found in one place. Charities reporting under Tier 3
Tier 4 will find “Getting Started” videos, example Performance Reports, the standard, template and guidance notes, and videos on how to use the template. There is also information about specific aspects of the standards that need some extra explanation. We recommend you work through this material in the order that it is presented on the website to get the maximum benefit.
Step 4: Review additional information about tricky areas if needed
If you have found that you have gotten stuck on a particular area of your Performance Report, chances are someone else has as well. Click here to access a table
that summarises the areas that we get asked about the most, and the additional resources that you can access to find the answers you need.
Step 5: Still stuck?
If you still have questions after looking through the material above, then please contact us for help on 0508 CHARITIES or email us.
