INDEPENDENT EXAMINATION OF CHARITIES
Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR)
There is lots of guidance for Scottish Charities on the OSCR website
Association of Charity Independent Examiners (ACIE)
ACIE is the only professional body whose sole focus is Independent Examination and its Full Membership procedure is the only route available to people wanting to have their work in Independent Examination scrutinised and validated.
Independent examiners do not require to be a member of the ACIE but it does contain a list those who are members which may help you if you are looking for an independent examiner.
It is important that voluntary organisations and community groups are insured for their protection and that protection of their volunteers, staff, beneficiaries, and the public. There is information and links to be found on the Community Toolkit.
