Single Charity templates for the FRS102 SORP (modified by SORP edition 2 October 2019):-

FRS 102 SORP 15 (as modified by SORP edition 2 - October 2019) single charity templates for for unincorporated charities that have income less than £500,000 (ie defined as small in the SORPs). Single charity templates are NOT available in 'large' formats, as defined in the SORP. For such charities, which are subject to statutory audit, you should purchase one of the bundles. Click to go to bundles

The bundles which are shown on separate product pages are licensed to prepare an unlimited number of accounts for an unlimited number of charities within the license year.Templates for large charities are NOT available as single templates.

By contrast :-

The single charity templates in this category are licensed ONLY for one charity on ONE computer for one year from the date of purchase., and must NOT be used for additional charities without breaching the licence conditions. This restriction is reflected in the pricing structure for the templates.

Content of the templates

The templates in this category are identical to the bundled templates, except they are restricted in their application to an unincorporated charity which is not a company and not a CIO. Such a charity can take many forms and may be governed by a written constitution, a trust deed or other governing document, and the templates have been tailored accordingly. This means that a number of steps in the STEPs process have been suppressed and do not apply, making the process a little shorter.

The single charity templates are also restricted in that they apply to the particular jurisdiction indicated (ie England & Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland).

The templates have security routines built into them that may produce unpredictable and unsatisfactory results, if used for more than one charity, outside the terms of the licence.

Application

To use these products, users must have the VT Accounts Production Software add on to Excel installed on their computer. Excel must be Excel 2003 or higher, but not in the 64 bit edition. Any Windows operating system from Windows XP or above will be suitable.

These templates are used to prepare a FRS102 SORP 15 (as modified by SORP edition 2 - October 2019) compliant set of accounts. They work in conjunction with VT Software, and require a good working knowledge of Excel and VT Accounts Production software.

The templates normally apply for accounting periods commencing on or after 1st January 2019. However, they can be adopted for earlier periods. commencing on or after January 1st 2016, but we would not recommend early adoption.  To all intents and purposes, in most cases, this new modification will impact on years ending on or after 31st December 2019.

The modified FRS102 SORP 2015 (as modified by Bulletin 1 in 2016) and included as a separate template in Sorpaid's products MUST NOT be used for periods commencing on or after 1st January 2019.

The modified version of the FRS102 charity SORP, applicable from 1st January 2019, changes the mandatory accounting treatments that should be followed. It also requires more detailed analysis of the prior year comparative figures

The templates cannot be used after one year, unless a renewal licence fee is paid.

If a purchaser has an existing licence for the template bundle, the modified FRS102 SORP 2015 (as modified by Bulletin 1 in 2016), then when purchasing this new bundle, the old licence for the former templates will automatically be extended, free of charge, until the anniversary of the purchase of the new bundle.

For new purchasers who do not have an existing licence for the modified FRS102 SORP 2015 (as modified by Bulletin 1 in 2016) and who may wish to use the former templates in the transition period, we will supply a discount code enabling you to purchase the former templates for a nominal £10.

If you want to use the templates on more than one computer, then significant discounts are available for additional licences, and you should contact Sorpaid for details.
