In part one of this series, we’ll give you the skills and confidence to review, analyse and interpret financial information, specifically in the NFP sector and will cover:

  • Definition of a not-for-profit (NFP) and a charity; tax status of NFPs and common legal structures of NFPs
  • Financial reporting and audit requirements of charities with ACNC
  • Overview of the three financial statements – balance sheet, income statement and statement of cash flows
  • A simple 7-step methodology as to how to read, analyse and interpret a balance sheet of a charity
  • What questions to ask the CFO when reviewing a balance sheet.

Financial literacy is a skill that few of us are taught, yet when joining a board, are expected to understand, investigate and ask intelligent questions about. By the end of the series you will be armed with a simple step-by-step methodology and set of key questions which will assist in your capability to interpret your financial status.
