Finance, Tax & Compliance for NGOs and other NPOs Course


NGOs, and other Not for Profit organizations including Charities and Faith-Based organizations are not immune from Taxation, Reporting and other Compliance requirements. The widely held perceptions on exemptions expose these organizations to significant risk of non-compliance penalties and fines. Furthermore, the emerging focus by KRA on NGOs and other NPOs for non-compliance on specific areas is evidence that these organizations must pay more regard to their compliance obligations. While several avenues are available for NGOs and NPOs to seek exemptions on specific areas, NGOs and NPOs must familiarize themselves with these requirements and the available exemptions and aggressively seek these exemptions. Boards, Trustees, Executive Committees, CEOs, HODs and other Managers must understand what the legislative requirements are, avenues for seeking exemptions and other planning measures that they can take advantage of as a basis of mitigating non- compliance exposures and reducing the overall costs to the organization.
