Charity and Not For Profit

Organisations within the third sector face an increasing amount of regulation and increased commercial pressure in the current difficult economic environment.

  • Advice on compliance with the Charities Act 2006 and SORP 2005
  • Carrying out statutory audits and independent examinations
  • VAT and Tax compliance and planning advice, including trading issues
  • Registration and advice on organisation structure
  • Guidance on best practice for governance and trusteeship
  • Strategic planning, grant applications and risk assessments
