In this issue, we outline the main principles of the new Charity Governance Code which was updated during the summer to encourage higher standards of governance and leadership across the sector.

We also have details of a new Financial Reporting Exposure Draft, issued by the Financial Reporting Council in September, that looks at the accounting for Gift Aid payments between subsidiaries and their charitable parent.

In the latest of our series of exclusive client interviews, we catch-up with Jon Riley, Chief Operating Officer at Seven Stories about the great work the charity does in the local area, the main challenges they have faced and their aspirations for the future.

Finally, in light of the new Charity Governance Code, we look ahead to our final charity briefing of 2017, which will put governance and leadership centre stage.
