Charity and not-for-profit in York

Our charity and not-for-profit accounting team is committed to providing a comprehensive range of 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.

Our charity clients range from large independent schools and publicly funded service providers to smaller local clubs, such as Community Amateur Sports Clubs, and voluntary organisations. The services we provide include audit/independent examination, assistance with the preparation of SORP compliant financial statements, bookkeeping and management reporting, and advice on financial controls and reserves policy.

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 objective of your charity. Our strong technical awareness allows us to give our clients clear and practical advice on the complex financial and tax issues faced by the sector, such as Gift Aid, the use of trading subsidiaries and VAT compliance and planning.
