Scottish Water: Get your community ready for winter

We received this email today from Scottish Water.

Good afternoon,

I am writing regarding Scottish Water’s annual drive to encourage customers to heat, insulate and protect their homes this winter.

I have attached some materials for you and your community which can be shared to help provide advice on how to avoid burst pipes in the home and on what to do if a pipe does burst.

I have some physical copies of the leaflet along with stickers which can be used to remind customers of who their plumber is and how to contact them. If you would like me to send these through to you, please send me your address. Unfortunately, I do not have any hard copies of the posters.

The materials can be viewed or downloaded here …………………………………..

Kind regards

Introduction to Accrual Accounts Workshop

This workshop is for anyone who deals with the accounts within their organisation.

This will be an interactive workshop for you to see good practice and how accruals should be done within your accounts.

1.2 Should the charity prepare fully accrued accounts?
Fully accrued accounts must be prepared by a charity that fulfils at least one of the following criteria:

  • has a gross income for the year of £100,000 or more (this threshold increases to £250,000 for accounting periods starting on or after 1 April 2011)
  • is a company or a Registered Social Landlord or a Higher or Further Education Institution
  • the constitution or governing document or any enactment of Parliament says the charity should prepare fully accrued accounts, or accounts that give a true and fair view of its financial affairs
  • the trustees have decided that they will prepare fully accrued accounts.
*Please bring a copy of your most recent set of their own accounts this is for so you can have some private review on the day.
