The key areas for consideration are:

1. General accounting and record-keeping

2.Board/committee responsibility/competence

3. Staff competence (if paid staff are employed)

4. Legal requirements (linked to your legal identity and what information is required for example by Companies House if you are a company limited by guarantee)

5. Budgeting

6. Financial reporting

7. Bank reconciliation (every month)

8. Cash Flow budgets

9. Management accounts

10. End of year accounts and audit trails
