The charity and not-for-profit sector is becoming increasingly vital to the UK, both in terms of its social and community impact, and its economic impact, as public services are outsourced and more services delivered by the sector.

There are now over 180,000 registered charities in the UK supported by approximately 1 million Trustees. We have the privilege of acting for charities who operate on a local, national and international level across a wide range of activities, delivering services and meeting the needs of a diverse range of beneficiaries.

We act for both incorporated and unincorporated charities, including CIOs, Community Interest Companies, Clubs and Associations and Companies limited by guarantee. Our commitment to the charity sector is further evidenced by our own fundraising efforts and nominated annual charity.

It is vital for Trustees to be able to lean on informed and trusted advisors to help them carry out their responsibilities and that they have the required information to inform and assist them in their decision making. Amongst our charity experts we have a holder of the ICAEW Charity Diploma, as well as experts in tax and audit from across the firm.

We are able to provide Trustees and management with the comfort and peace of mind knowing that they are being provided with reliable, accurate and timely advice and support whatever challenges they face, and are always on hand to help with compliance, governance and planning matters facing the sector.

Our services also include:

  • Audit
  • Independent Examination
  • Statutory accounts preparation
  • Management accounts
  • Tax and VAT advice and compliance including trading matters
  • Payroll bureau and support
  • Governance support and advice including managing conflicts of interest
  • Restructuring, merger and acquisition support
