When you lead a charity or not-for profit body, you juggle many responsibilities, including the day-to-day running of your organisation, maximising funds for its core work and ensuring that you stay compliant with complex regulatory regimes.

That’s why it makes sense to work with advisers who understand charity accountancy, audit and tax requirements and can help you to operate as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
