Description - Financial Management in the Voluntary Sector by Paul Palmer
The accounting and financial management of voluntary organizations poses as many difficulties as that of major for-profit organizations, if not more so given the absense of the profit motive upon which much tradtitional accounting, finance practice and theory has been developed. This book explores the unique environmental, managerial and philosophical aspects of voluntary organizations as well as the technical specialist charactersitics of financial accounting, auditing and taxation that make the role different. Financial Management in the Voluntary Sector introduces and provides descriptions of the main applications of accounting and finance applicable to the role of financial manager. Using real life case studies and examining the debates presented by other writers in the field, this book will help the reader to make their own critical judgements and will contribute to their understanding of the distinctiveness of voluntary sector accounting and financial management.
