Auditing ZEWO-ceritified Non-Profit Organisations

Charitable, social non-profit organisations which raise their profile with appeals for public donations are often ZEWO-certified. A certification requires – in addition to complying with a number of ZEWO requirements – the preparation of annual financial statements in line with the accounting recommendations of Swiss GAAP FER 21 and therefore compliance with the full FER.

Good to know

One component in the certification of the ZEWO seal of approval – or re-certification – is an annual evaluation by the auditor as to whether ZEWO requirements have been adhered to. As part of this, the disclosure of administration costs and the compensation of foundation board members in particular provide cause for discussion time and again. Thanks to our extensive knowledge in this area, we can efficiently check these requirements as part of the audit of the annual financial statements.
