Whether your organisation is a newly-formed or small charity or a larger organisation with several branches, our charities and not-for-profit specialists can assist you in preparing accounts and audits to meet your statutory obligations.

We’ll advise you on the implications of the rules and regulations for your charity or not-for-profit organisation and keep you up to date with changes to legislation and accounting formats.

Charities are always conscious of making every penny count and even more so when the financial downturn has hit the charities and not-for-profit sector hard.

By working with our experienced charities and not-for-profit team, you can be sure of expert advice to help you operate as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, with the potential to find ways to reduce costs without cutting back on services or dipping into reserves.

We have particular experience in working with charitable trusts, including their administration, preparation of accounts and preparing and auditing financial statements required by trustees.

We can also assist charitable trusts with making claims for tax repayments to HM Revenue & Customs and assist trustees with their annual reports on risk identification and management.

Other services to charities include:

  • preparation of accounts under the Charities SORP (Statement of Recommended Practice) and Charities Act
  • audit and independent examiners’ reports
  • specialist taxation advice on matters such as Gift Aid relief
  • advice on the incorporation/registration of charities
  • advice on operational structure
  • trading activities.
