What it does
How you use it
What is the benefit?

Anthony Mills, one user, says:-I\'d happily tell people how great your software is! … How anyone would ever consider preparing charity accounts without it, is a mystery to me. It would be nigh on impossible, I believe! 

This product is for use for one charity ONLY, and is the template for Independent Examination of an Unincorporated charity (Receipts and Payments basis) in Scotland.

Other single charity products in this product category cover other forms of charity accounts, such as incorporated charities, and if this particular product is not appropriate to your needs, then please look at the other products in this category.

These templates are designed to be used by a single charity, or a firm of accountants who only have one charity client. If a buyer, such as an accountancy firm, requires templates for the production of accounts for more than one charity client, then they should purchase the full version on the Sorpaid Shop in the category  'Multiple Charity Accounts'

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.

Our charity templates are Excel based templates that are compatible with the VT Software Final Accounts Production Software. They require an installation of VT Software in order to work.

Details of VT software are given on the 'How you use it' tab

The accounts consist of a Trustees' Annual Report, a Statement of Financial Activities, an Income and Expenditure Account, a Balance Sheet and related notes and schedules.

The latest version of the templates, version 14, is compliant with the 2005 SORP as revised in 2008 and the 2008 FRSSE, and has a large number of new features that were not available in earlier versions.

Under the \'Manual/Resources tab of this product are links to sample accounts, and to a free copy of the operator's manual.

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 £140 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.
