We've received reports of a number of frauds that were facilitated in part by lax procedures during the pandemic.

Please remind your clients that dual signatory electronic banking is an important safeguard in interrupting scammers.

That scammers may well take advantage of the disruption to processes and the extensive advice emails, that are likely to occur in January.

The Charity Commission has updated its advice on Managing Finances including:

  1. Protect your charity’s money
  2. Know your charity’s financial position
  3. Keep accurate financial records
  4. Manage expenses and payments to trustees
  5. Deal with financial problems quickly

It is also important that charities not be allowed to 'drift' in their (often generous) response to the pandemic. The Charity Commission has updated it's advice on Purpose and Rules.
