Reserves Policy - Are there new demands on reserves post-pandemic?
Changing perspectives on reserves post COVID-19, PwC Ireland has had a huge amount of queries and interest from clients on the whole topic of reserves and “how much is enough” particularly over the last 12 months. Many charities have been re-thinking their reserves policies in the context of the COVID-19 global pandemic and in the context of other changing priorities, such as ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) commitments.
In this session Aisling Fitzgerald, Director at PwC Ireland, will discuss the Charities Regulator's views on reserves, the important distinction between “Restricted” and “Designated” Funds, and the two main types of post-COVID reserve - “Operational Reserve” and “Sustainability Reserve”.
