Charities Regulatory Developments and SORP Reporting Features, July 2018
Proposed new SORP-making body from 1 January 2019
The Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland charity regulators are to be included in a new charity sector SORP-making body. The four charity regulators of the UK and Ireland will for the first time work together to develop the charity accounting framework for use across all four law jurisdictions. This is a very welcome development and hopefully will lead to a more streamlined reporting structure for the sector
The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has approved the addition of the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland and the Charities Regulatory Authority (CRA) for the Republic of Ireland as joint members of the SORP-making body with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (CCEW) and the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). The inclusion of the CRA is subject to the SORP being formally adopted by way of regulation in the Republic of Ireland.
The regulators will begin developing the new SORP from 1 January 2019.
