The study advises greater disclosure in charity accounts and makes recommendations on what information should be provided, where it should be done and when.

‘Charities are being encouraged to provide more information through their Reports and Accounts and this study provides guidance on how to do that effectively,’ said Shirley Scott, chief executive of the CFDG.
