Charity and not-for-profit

Our national charity and not-for-profit specialists are committed to providing a comprehensive range of audit and accounting services specifically tailored to meet the needs of charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Our charity accounting experience

Our work with not-for-profit organisations forms an integral part of our business and we specialise in advising a range of clients in the sector, including grant making trusts, international charities, educational bodies, academies, membership associations, and many other charities and trusts across the UK.

UHY work with more than 300 charity and NFP sector clients, of varying sizes and with a range of objects, across the UK. We consistently receive top ratings in the annual Charity Finance Audit Surveys. This includes 100% of our charity clients participating in the 2023 survey awarding UHY the top score for our charity expertise, technical expertise and also our overall service. We were ranked 2nd within the survey for our charity expertise and 3rd for overall service to our charity clients. 

We are also appointed to the approved panel of Interim Managers for the Charity Commission, with four of our partners approved to take interim manager appointments for charities identified by the Commission as either being the subject of an inquiry, or where misconduct or mismanagement has occurred.

Our considerable experience helping charities and other not-for-profit entities deal with the financial aspects of running their organisation ranges from advising on the use of trading subsidiaries to sorting out the VAT position on property and fundraising ventures. Our specialists 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.
