Charity and not-for-profit

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 were ranked fourth in the 2020 Charity Finance Audit Survey for both the level of our expertise in the charity sector as well as our overall service levels, with 100% of our clients participating in the survey allocating UHY full marks in both categories.

We have also been 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.

Our charity sector blog

As part of our commitment to keep our clients informed and up-to-date with the latest developments and ideas in the sector, we have a long-established charities sector blog which covers the latest issues, including any announcements from the Charity Commission, and explains how these issues could affect you. Visit our insights page to view our latest charity resources.

Charity and not-for-profit outlook

We cover a range of topics which take a look at the impact of COVID-19 and discuss what you can do to protect your charity.
