Charities & education

Do you want a firm of accountants who have a growing reputation as being trusted advisers to an increasing number of charities, providing a high level of professional support for all of their clients?

Our audit partner, Jonathan Staples, along with his team, has brought a deep commitment to his work in helping develop new charities and assisting those that are more established. Our charities team brings with it a wealth of experience and an up-to-date knowledge of the charitable sector.

How can we help you?

  • Do you or your trustees struggle to understand the “jargon” associated with Charity accounts? We can translate this into plain, simple language for you.
  • Do your accounts properly show the distinction between Restricted, Unrestricted and Designated funds?
  • Do your trustees understand the different types of funds?
  • Do you have a reserves policy?
  • Does your Trustees report say what impact your charity has on your beneficiaries?
  • Are you happy that you have the proper internal controls set up within your charity?
  • Should you set up a trading company?
  • Should you be registered for VAT?
  • Have you got a business plan?
  • Are you able to review your financial position at any moment in time and do you discuss timely financial information with your trustees on a regular basis?
  • Do your trustees understand their responsibilities?
  • Does your accounting system produce the information that you need?
  • Do your accounts need auditing, or reviewing by an Independent Examiner?

We are able to assist you in all of these areas, and more.

You will know that Charity accounting is difficult; we can help simplify it for you.
