Expert Charity Accountants

Unlike other accountancy firms, RWB Chartered Accountants offer bespoke accounting and tax advice and support to charities and not-for-profit organisations.

It is widely believed that, "any accountant can act for a charity… it's just a business without profits." However, this is far from the truth and the Not-for-Profit sector is a highly complex and specialist area. There are issues around regulation, which can be a minefield to the uninititiated and there are specialist tax issues which apply specifically to charities and similar bodies.

Charitable organisations need business advisers who understand the complexities in charity accounts and can provide pro-active advice to ensure they meet their regulatory obligations and their charitable objectives.

Our expert accountants can:

  • Support charities and not-for-profit organisations
  • Advise clubs and associations
  • Support Trade Associations
  • Give guidance to schools
  • Provide peace of mind
  • Offer ongoing support and guidance

Types of charity accounting services

We offer a wide range of charity accounting services ranging from carrying out audits to ensuring charity legislation compliance. The law on taxing charitable profits and VAT law affecting charities is very complex. Getting it wrong can be expensive. We understand the issues and can offer strategically sound solutions.

Charity accounting services include:

  • Charity audits
  • Ensuring charity legislation compliance
  • Selecting Charity SORP legislation
  • Ensuring trustee sustainability
  • Reserves policies and forward business plans
  • Dealing with tax issues
