Not-for-profit organizations and charities

Running a charity or not-for-profit organisation carries with it a lot of responsibility and important obligations, from its day-to-day running through to the maximisation of fundraising efforts.

All the while charity leaders must ensure they remain compliant with the complex regulatory regimes that dictate charity finances and management.

That is why organisations must work alongside trusted advisers who understand the accountancy, audit and tax requirements of the third sector and can alleviate much of the stress of running a charity or not-for-profit organisation – allowing it to operate as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
