It’s vital to have accounts which are clear, concise and comply fully with the relevant regulations apply to your organisation.

The law states the following for Charities:

  • Registered charities with an income of more than £25,000 but less than £1,000,000 must have an Independent Examination

(An income of over £1,000,000 requires a full statutory audit)

It is good practice for charities with an income of under £25,000 to have an Independent Examination as it demonstrates good financial governance to potential funders.

As part of the process, we provide:

  • One to one consultation
  • Final production of accounts
  • A comprehensive certificate to accompany the bound accounts
  • Additional management information pages (if requested)
  • Advice and guidance to the Trustees (if required)

Our staff have extensive knowledge of charity accounts, funding and the legal requirements of the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP). They are members of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT).

Our fees are as low as £198.00.
