The charity sector is full of pressures. Our job is to take as many as possible off your plate, so you can make an even bigger difference.

Charities and not-for-profit organisations face a unique series of operational challenges, from raising funds to diversifying income streams, managing investment portfolios to keeping stakeholders happy. And then there’s the need to keep up to date with complex and ever-changing regulations.

Our specialist charities team, ranked first in the country for service and first for expertise to the sector (Charity Audit Survey 2020), can help with them all. We have over 25 years’ experience providing high quality compliance, governance, taxation and advisory services to a wide range of charities and NFPs – and every one of our projects looks different, because every client is too.

We listen closely to your needs, take the time to understand your organisation, and work with you to craft solutions that will deliver the best possible results. Our experts will guide you through the minefield of regulation while also helping you meet your obligations, manage your risk and cover your day-to-day responsibilities. Above all else, we understand the vital need for strong financial results and deep engagement with stakeholders and trustees.

Many of our partners and staff are actively involved in local charities, with dozens of trustees, committee members and fundraisers among us. We participate in forums such as the Charity Finance Group, Charity Tax Group and the Auditing Practices Board Charities Audit Working Group. Our clients include all types of third sector organisations, from schools to care homes, social enterprises to trade unions, religious organisations to theatres.

Our specialist services for charities and NFPs include:

  • Assurance services
  • Internal and external audit, independent examination
  • Outsourcing – payroll, management accounting and bookkeeping
