FRS 102 SORP 2015 (2016 modification) E&W SMALL Unincorporated no endowment funds

Price : £60.00 | Product Code : FRS102 16 E&W Unincorporated version 17.04 WITHOUT Endowment Funds

The templates normally apply for accounting periods commencing on or after 1st January 2016. However, they can be adopted for earlier periods. commencing on or after January 1st 2015.

Early adoption should be very carefully thought through, however, particularly in England & Wales. The modified version changes the definition of small charities. In the unmodified version that applies for 2015, smaller charities are defined as those not subject to statutory audit. In the modified version, small charities are defined as those with gross income below £500,000. This means that a charity in England & Wales with income between £500,000 and £1m would be small under the unmodified version and large under the modifed version. Because this has implications for disclosure requirements, we would normally recommend that such charities use the FRSSE SORP 2015 for accounts commencing in 2015 and then migrate to the modified version of FRS102 for the accounts commencing in 2016. There are also some changes in the modified version relating to the mandatory accounting treatments that should be followed.

The FRSSE  SORP 2015 was withdrawn for accounting periods commencing AFTER 31st December 2015. and the modified FRS102 SORP 2015 MUST be used for such periods.

Video Help -The templates have extensive video files showing how they are installed and how they should be used. These can be viewed before purchase by clicking on the link Video Help

 Use of this template

 FRS 102 SORP Single UNINCORPORATED CHARITY (of all kinds),  WITHOUT endowment funds, with income less than £500,000 (defined as small in the modified SORP).

Application :-This single template prepares accounts for a single unincorporated charity without endowment funds, defined as small in the SORP, operating in England & Wales. The accounts produced will be in accordance with the FRS102 SORP 15 (as modified in 2016 by the SORP Bulletin issued in February 2016), and in compliance with the legislation in England & Wales, and related regulations.

The accounts consist of a Trustees\' Annual Report, a Statement of Financial Activities, an Income and Expenditure Account, a Balance Sheet, a Cash Flow Statement (if required) and related notes and schedules. Throughout the templates there are HELP! links to the relevant disclosure requirements of the SORP, and links to a library of publications and reference material on the internet. There is comprehensive guidance on law and practice.

The user prepares the accounts by following a STEPS process which is described on the STEPS tab on these product details.

 The templates are NOT for bookkeeping purposes - they are for final accounts preparation in SORP compliant format. A user comes to the templates with a finalised Trial Balance prepared from a bookkeeping system, and the template turns this TB into a set of statutory accounts.

Knowledge required and technical support.

 Because it is assumed that many users of these templates not only have a good working knowledge of Excel and VT, but also are qualified accountants, then the help and support on the technical aspects of these templates is limited. We are very willing to offer limited telephone support on initial installation, and advice on technical difficulties with the operation of the software itself. In practice, as the templates are Excel based, we have found that very rarely has there been the necessity for any detailed support, although on occasion we have referred users to VT for help with aspects specific to VT Software. However, in the past, we have found that, because of the specialised nature of charity accounting, many users of the templates feel they need the benefit of technical accountancy assistance.

 Peter Brown & Co are able to offer an annual retainer for telephone support on technical charity accounting matters for £130 per annum. This will entitle a user to up to four hours technical discussion per annum. On more complex matters specific instructions would be taken -  See the advice section of the Sorpaid Shop. If any user who did not take advantage of the annual retainer to provide assistance on technical accounting matters, Sorpaid reserve the right to charge a professional fee for the time engaged. Any purchaser of the templates would be advised when it was felt that a fee basis would be appropriate and the fee basis would be discussed and agreed before proceeding.
