Church Treasurer News
A national charity for church treasurers has issued revised guidance on the changes to Gift Aid
This guidance, which covers the application of the Small Donations Scheme to multiple sites, is available free of charge from the Association of Church Treasurers and Accountants (ACAT) website www.acat.uk.com.
In addition ACAT has announced that it will shortly be running two regional workshops for church treasurers. The workshops will help treasurers take a strategic view of their work and in particular cover Taking/Handing over as a Treasurer / Fundraising and avoiding Tax Pitfalls / Budgeting and Planning a Project.
The courses run on 23 May in Abergavenny and 6 June in Maidstone and cost £25.00 per delegate including lunch.

ACAT supports its members by providing training, advice, guidance and information on accounting, financial, legal and other related issues. The Baptist Union of Great Britain has a block membership agreement with ACAT to provide membership for every church treasurer in the Union.
ACAT was started in 1995 and now has nearly 10,000 members drawn from all UK Christian denominations.
