Over the course of three Wednesdays in March and April over 75 poeple representing theatre, performing arts, and music came toegther to talk about whether or not to incorpoarte as a not for Profit Society, alternatives to incorporationa dn regsitration for charitable status. I am working now on a 3 part toolkit called Society Survival. As I have been preparing I thought I’d share a recent excerpt from a presentation at the CBC ational Charity Law Conference.
Several issues tend to recur during the course of charity audits, including:
• Receipting: Absence of critical information Issuing receipts for services Determining fair market value
• Books and records Incomplete, or sometimes missing entirely
Charities that do not file their financial statements with their annual information return will have their registration revoked.
