We provide expertise in the area of charities as well as not for profit organisations - often referred to as the 'third sector'. We can advise on a number of aspects of charity regulation and accounting, as well as providing accounting services in terms of management information and year end accounts. Acting as independent examiner is another service we provide to this sector.
We have dealt with number of different types of organisation in the third sector including:
Both Sarah Hollis and Suzanne Graham have specialised in this sector for much of their careers. Sarah sat on the Charities Committee of the chartered accountants' governing body, ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland), for a decade up until 2018. With the new charities SORP 2015 and the move to international reporting standards (FRS102) there are various developments regarding the preparation of your annual year end accounts which we can assist with.
We act as independent examiner for a number of charities. Please note that, although we do not provide an audit service, we are able to produce year end accounts for clients and produce information in required form for a separate audit firm and communicate with them on your behalf.
