UHY Hacker Young | Chartered Accountants

Charity and not-for-profit

Charity and 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 more support than ever.

We make it our 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.
