Analysis of the non-profit sector in the EU10 for monitoring and control

Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

The expansion of the European Union marks a changing and defining period for the non profit sector of the accession countries. The issues related to expansion were numerous and complex. This process has resulted in the governments and parliaments of the accession countries creating institutions and mechanisms to facilitate the integration process.
The work "Analysis of the EU10 Non-Profit Sector for Monitoring and Control" contributes to the main objective of supporting EU regulatory work for the non-profit sector and the transparency and traceability for aid funds. This report is complementary to the report "Analysis of the EU15 Non-profit Sector for Monitoring and Control" which sets out the context of the current work in detail and also contains information regarding the classification and definitions used for the non profit sector.
Primarily the aim of this work is to present an overview of the non-profit sector in EU10 with regard to the prevention of fraudulent use of funds in the non-profit sector. The basic purpose of this report is to support the EU regulatory work for the charitable/non-profit sector through a comparative analysis of information with a view to standardising terminology, comparing requirements for registration, accreditation, and monitoring. The report also includes an overview of the tax status of Non-Governmental Organisations, as well as short overview of the gambling sector in the EU10.
