Product Information


According to the NPO Directorate, 50% of 250 000 NPOs are on the verge of deregistration due to non-compliance with filing annual reports and poor financial record keeping and controls.

CIBA’s Licensed NPO Treasurer programme aims to:

  • equip Treasurers that have been deprived of adequate financial skills to maintain a proper accounting system and file the required reports with the NPO Directorate,
  • upskill Treasurers regarding the accounting functions and duties of a NPO Treasurer,
  • notify Treasurers of the legal requirements NPOs must comply with and
  • provide support and guidance to Treasurers from a professional accounting body that recognises the importance of accountants, independent of the size of the NPO.

CIBA’s objective with the programme is to:

  1. address non-compliance issues among NPOs,
  2. improve the Department of Social Development’s (DSD) reporting to Parliament,
  3. give confidence to Donors to invest more in the sector,
  4. equip NPO directors and treasurers responsible for the financial management of NPOs to maintain a proper accounting system, and
  5. provide NPO treasurers with accounting career support and guidance by being a member of a professional body.
