MOTAT’s Annual Report recognised at National Charity Awards

MOTAT’s Finance Team have received well-deserved recognition with a win at last night’s 2019 New Zealand Charity Reporting Awards.

The annual awards were organised by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) to recognise best practice among registered charities in adopting financial reporting standards which give greater transparency and consistency among charities.

Over 130 charities entered the awards this year, surpassing the expectations of the organisers.

MOTAT received the Highly Commended (runner-up) award in the Tier 2 Category which measures charities with an annual expenditure between $2million to $30million.Special note was also made of the measuring and reporting of MOTAT’S non-financial objectives.

Wayne Schache, MOTAT’S General Manager of Business Services and Tony Goddard, Finance Manager, attended the ceremony in Wellington to accept this Highly Commended award on behalf of the MOTAT Team. 

“Entering our annual report hasn’t been something we have considered doing in the past” said Wayne.

“But a lot of work across the whole MOTAT Team goes into the production of our Annual Report, and we thought the 2017-2018 was a great team effort.

We strive to make our annual report a full reflection of who we are as a business, so it is heartening to have our efforts recognised by these independent judges and alongside our charity peers.”

MOTAT Chief Executive, Michael Frawley was quick to share this important achievement with MOTAT’s major stakeholder partners stating, “I am extremely proud of the finance team. This is further evidence of the significant and positive progress that MOTAT has made over the last four years.”
