Charity and not-for-profit

Our charity and not-for-profit accounting team is committed to providing a comprehensive range of audit and accounting services specifically tailored to meet the needs of non-profit organisations.

Charity or not-for-profit organisations operate within a dynamic, competitive and highly regulated environment. We recognise that while your primary focus is on those who use or benefit from your services, you have to manage tightly controlled finances that are then transparently reported in the public domain. In addition, in this age of increased competition for grant funding and charitable giving, and with the increased burden of compliance, your organisation needs to be managed better than ever.

Our specialists make it their business to understand your organisation and the issues impacting on you as a result of changing economic forces, regulation and legislation. Our priority is to provide our charity and not-for-profit clients with the necessary technical support they require to meet their financial and administrative challenges, and offer a professional and friendly service that is driven by the needs of your organisation.

We have considerable experience in helping charities and other third sector organisations deal with the financial aspects of running their organisations, from advising on the use of trading subsidiaries and annual Charity Commission submissions, to sorting out the VAT position on property and fundraising ventures.

We are committed to providing comprehensive charity audit and accounting services which tackle these and many other issues to help you maintain a financially sound organisation which is focused on meeting the core objectives of your charity.
