Charity and Non Profit Accounting Services

Charity and not for profit auditors and tax advisors

We are specialist charity accountants who know that charity begins at home.  As part of our corporate social responsibility programme, we’re proud of our charity sponsorship record, and several of our partners are charity trustees. 

Audit, accounting and compliance services, provided to charities and other not for profit organisations, are a given.  It’s in our value added services where you’ll really see the difference between us and our competitors. 

Our clients include not for profits, charities, schools and other educational organisations, grant-making trusts, religious bodies, professional institutions and associations, rights collecting societies and museums.  We identify with the culture and aims of this sector.

As specialist charity accountants, our vast experience and knowledge ensures that we understand what makes our clients tick. We also know that accounting can be more complex for you as charity accounts are often not as straightforward as a typical company. Advising you on how best to structure yourselves to run as any other business, and exactly what to do when dealing with grants versus trading is second nature to us.  What’s more, we can advise on fundraising and help steer you through the tax implications of charity trading.

By regularly attending board and sub-committee meetings to present financial information and discuss wider charity governance matters, we provide significant support to trustees.

Fully involving ourselves with your business so that we understand it from the inside out means that as specialist charity accountants, we ensure that you are confident about the issues you face in an increasingly complex financial and tax arena.

We deal with:

  • Gift Aid claims
  • deeds of covenant
  • formation of limited companies
  • VAT issues
  • setting up of branches

In addition, our outsourcing services include:

  • Budgeting
  • cash flow projections
  • management reporting
  • payroll
  • … and more

And, as not for profit accountants, we can help our clients to maintain a financially sound organisation focused upon meeting their core objectives, by advising on strategic planning, grants and funding, risk assessment and dealing with the Charity Commission.
