Statutory audit

An external audit may not be optional for most charities but we aim to do more than conduct the formalities by adding real value and making practical recommendations for improvements to your charity’s processes.

Understanding the charity and not-for-profit sector

We recognise that while you face many of the same business pressures as commercial entities, your legal status and the nature of your governance present different risks therefore a different approach is required.

Our many years of experience have given us unrivalled insight on the issues that affect the running of your organisation – be it a charity providing services, an independent school, an arts and culture body or a not-for-profit enterprise. We understand the complexities involved in financial reporting for charities and the nature and implications of restricted funding agreements.

Within that context we are able to help you to make improvements to reduce your financial risks while promoting best practice and governance at all times.

A holistic approach

As well as providing you with assurance on your financial position, performance and reporting, we will give you valuable recommendations on financial processes and key controls.

We keep abreast of all the regulatory changes relevant to your business and actively ensure that you do too.
