Charities can win reporting awards
Non-profit organisations can win prizes of £2,000 for the best online annual report and accounts.
The ICAEW and the Charities Aid Foundation have sponsored the awards, which aim to encourage greater transparency and use of the web. The competition is divided into four income categories: over £2 million; £500,000 to £2 million; £100,000 to £500,000 and less than £100,000.
Charities and voluntary groups have until the end of June to enter the new Charities’ Online Accounts Awards.
In order to qualify, online accounts and reports must fully comply with the Statement of Recommended Practice published by the Charity Commission. Entries will be judged on financial reporting accuracy, ease of access to the report from the website’s homepage, innovation, value for money and ease of navigation.
