Submissions on audit and assurance requirements for larger and medium registered charities

In February 2013 The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) released the paper “Auditing and Assurance for Larger and Medium Registered Charities – Concrete Proposals”.

Since then ANGOA has worked with MBIE to hold a series of seminars, consulting on the proposals alongside the related proposals on accounting standards for smaller registered charities that have been developed by the External Reporting Board (XRB). Well over 2,000 people attended these seminars and ANGOA has appreciated all the feedback received. We have tried to represent the diverse feedback fairly in the submission and in our report to MBIE.

For ANGOA’s  final draft submission to MBIE re it’s proposals, please see attached: ANGOA Submission on Compulsory Assurance May 2013 (85; KB)

You are very welcome to send comments and suggestions to the ANGOA Coordinator at, but we also recommend you make your own submission. Feel free to refer to ANGOA’s submission, or to simply advise MBIE that you support what ANGOA has written.
