Entries open for the 2020 New Zealand Charity Reporting Awards

Published 27 November 2019




Has your charity done a particularly good job with your financial reporting? If so, you could be recognised in the 2020 New Zealand Charity Reporting Awards.


The awards were established by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) in 2017 to recognise the efforts of registered charities who meet the financial reporting standards.


The not-for-profit financial reporting standards were introduced in 2015 to ensure transparent, consistent, comparable reporting across the sector and allow charities to tell their stories. For many charities completing their financial reporting is a significant undertaking and the awards are a great chance to celebrate best practice among registered charities.


To enter, send through your financial statements (Tier 1 & 2) or your performance report (Tier 3 & 4) to charityreportingawards@charteredaccountantsanz.com. The report you enter must be the same as the report filed with Charities Services and available on the Charities Register for your most recent financial year.


Reports will be judged on communication effectiveness and innovation, compliance with the standards, and overall presentation. Feedback on entries from last year’s awards is summarised in this blog post(external link). 


Entries close at midday on Friday 21 February 2020.
