Charities and not-for-profit organisations

The not-for-profit sector is currently facing many issues because of pressure on income, increased bureaucracy and public accountability and changes in legislation.

Charities in particular have to implement the new Statement of Recommended Practice 2005 in their 2006 accounts, which will require a significant change to the presentation of the Financial Statements.

Pressure on income has never been greater, with funding from local and central government being reduced every year and considerable competition for other sources of funding. At the same time the need for the services supplied by most charities is increasing as society’s problems become more complex.

We have many years of experience in this sector, and have clients ranging from very small local charity shops to large, nationwide charities with multi-million pound income. We also have a wide experience of the non-charitable not-for-profit organisations such as members clubs and trade unions.

We can help you to fulfil your statutory and constitutional obligations in respect of accounts and audit. We can also advise on the day-to-day running of the organisation, the role and responsibilities of trustees and good governance.
