Annual Report and Accounts with an Independent Examiners Certificate (download a template here) can be returned electronically to save parishes postage costs to email@example.com.
For 2020 accounts, we recommend that the independent examiners report considers the impact of COVID-19. The Charity Commission have produced guidance notes for independent examiners here.
In addition, the Diocese’s Data Protection Form enables each individual to confirm their contact details, and to give or withdraw consent for how we share them (if they wish us to).
