Our Charity Accountancy Services
We can help with all your charity accounting requirements, including:
Year End Accounts & Independent Examination We are specialists in our field and work with our clients to produce accounts that are relevant to their charity and tailored to their needs, whilst meeting all of their statutory responsibilities and providing guidance and explanations where required.
We are also authorised to carry out Independent Examination work for organisations with income up to £1,000,000.
Payroll We provide a payroll bureau service for organisations across the VCSE sector. Outsourcing to our fully managed bureau means that your payroll will be processed simply, quickly and reliably. With an initial set up fee of £50.00, our fees start from £1.75 per employee, per payroll run. Our payroll bureau is also able to ensure you meet all RTI (Real Time Information) and auto enrolment pension requirements.
Bookkeeping We offer a full bookkeeping and management accounts service, on or off your premises. This can either be for short term cover or a long term arrangement.

We can also offer training on funding bids, trustee roles and responsibilities, as well as other governance issues, all designed to meet your individual needs.
