We advise more than 300 charities, public and private foundations, communities, clubs and trusts.

The charities and not-for-profit sector faces countless financial challenges - not only do you have to raise and maintain funding in what is an increasingly difficult economy, but you also have to contend with changing regulations and complex tax treatments.

Combine that with the Charity Commission increasingly imposing extra demands, and a specialist and proactive approach to your accounts and finance function is vital to ensure that you can concentrate on what is most important - running a successful organisation.

We have built a strong reputation as accountants to charities, and not for profit organisations. We look after more than 300 clients in this sector and as we ranked nationally as a Top 30 charity audit firm in the Charity Finance league table, we are proud that 13 members of our team hold a Diploma of Charity Accounting, so you can be reassured that you will be receiving advice from experienced, well-qualified and genuinely well informed charity specialists.
