SEVERAL chapters of ACAT’s handbook have been updated to ensure that church treasurers of all denominations remain fully briefed.
The handbook is written to provide guidance for treasurers and others concerned with the financial and legislative affairs of their church, on a wide range of financial matters.
The updating has been overseen by ACAT’s Treasurer Greyham Dawes.
The new chapters include:
– Chapter Six: Basic Accruals Accounts
– Chapter Nine: Reserves
– Chapter Ten: Annual Report
– Chapter Eleven: Independent Examination
– Chapter Twenty Five: Charities in Scotland
ACAT Executive Officer Ashley Ellis said: “We recognise that our Handbook is a truly essential resource for members and we’re constantly checking to ensure that it is as up to date as possible.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Greyham for his outstanding work on this project.
“Earlier this year, we also worked with data protection specialist Kate Grimley Evans to update Chapter 21 on Data Protection.
“We will always let you know when these updates occur.”
