The not for profit and charity sector in Ireland has had to complete an exhaustive overhaul of how it conducts itself over the past number of years and the journey is only beginning. In November 2018 the CRA introduced ‘The Charities Governance Code’ for Ireland. For the first time in Ireland Charities will be required to complete a self-assessment of their compliance with the code and report directly to the CRA on the findings. See our blog post for more information:
