Accounting, finance and management professionals within the Not for Profit Sector across Australia need to be aware of important legislative, taxation and managerial changes – and must be ready to tackle them.
With increasing competition for donation dollars, community involvement and program assistance, efficient and effective operation is crucial.
The key question your organisation needs to ask is ‘how do you prepare for these challenges?’
