The Together-Razem Centre is a charity registered in the state institution regulating all such organisations, the Charity Regulator, under number 20075125, additionally having a tax exemption for a not-for-profit charity organisation in the Revenue Office and registered under number CHY 19216
The Together-Razem Centre conducts its mission based on the highest standards set by the Governance Code in Ireland, which has been signed by all members of the Board of Directors. The acceptance of high standards of control means that we conduct internal auditing and controlling carried out by the Audit Subcommittee and we are subject to inspections from the Charities Regulator, the Revenue Office and the funders themselves.
Each year, without the obligation to do this, we present all our expenses and revenues to an external accounting firm to prepare a professional audit of our accounts – we do it for transparency, for our clients, funders and to assure everyone that we are a reliable organisation. The full audit is carried out by CRESCO from Cork.
Every cent coming to the Together-Razem Centre is described and spent in accordance with the mission of the organisation.
The Together-Razem Centre, in order to exist and run its programs, needs external financing, so we organise public collections, fundraising events and provide paid services available to everyone, the so-called affordable services. All organisations with the Charity status in Ireland can legally sell their goods and services, and allocate revenues to carry out their missions and statutory tasks – as discussed in Section 208 of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997.
In the Together-Razem Centre, all directors have signed the Good Governance Code and we ensure that the organisation is managed in a manner consistent with the practice of charities in Ireland.
We are happy about the creation and operation of the Charity Regulator and we follow the rules of:1. transparency and responsibility 2. control and audit 3. good management 4. efficiency 5. integrity
