Tour of the Performance Report webinar

Tier 3 Templates
Below you will find three different formats of the Performance Report template that you can download and fill out. All of these templates are in line with “the Standard”. The Standard sets out the requirements for the Performance Report, for Tier 3 charities. Completing the template properly means you will meet these requirements. The use of these templates are optional, however, we really encourage you to use them as they help you to report easily and correctly.
The template comes in two different formats:
The Excel template can be completed digitally and includes smart features, such as automatically calculating some numbers for you. A tutorial is available to help you use the Excel template.
The PDF version is for those who would like to print a paper version that they can write on.
The Standard sets out the requirements for the preparation of a simple format report, called a Performance Report, for Tier 3 charities. It includes a glossary to assist with the understanding of the Standard.
These guidance notes to the optional template are written in plain language to assist in the application of the Tier 3 Standard. The Standard is the definitive source of requirements. Throughout these guidance notes there are references back to the Standard. The use of the guidance notes is optional.
