As a charity or not for profit organisation, you face a number of challenges. Our expertise and our service extend beyond simply undertaking an audit, to help you meet these challenges and look forward to the future. For example, we can help you if you want to reduce costs appropriately and sustainably, or would like to manage cash flow more effectively. We can also advise on pension issues and give you practical advice on risk management and governance. VAT for charities can be a particularly complex area and our VAT specialists assist many of our clients with partial exemption and property issues. If you have trading income, we can ensure this is tax efficient meaning you get the most out of your fundraising efforts. If you are considering mergers or other collaborations, our due diligence process will assess the suitability of potential partners, giving you complete confidence about your venture. You can also rely on our expertise to ensure that the financial structure of your charity is optimised through the transition.

Whatever direction your charity is going, we have the right person to guide and assist you through your development. To find out more, call us on +44(0)330 024 3200 and talk to one of our experts.
