Opening Hours

2pm until 5pm most weekdays. Other times by arrangement on 07793680821.

Based in Derry City, County Londonderry, we provide community accountancy services to primarily support the voluntary sector within Northern Ireland. All Community NI users are welcome to enquire about our services.

Supporting charities, voluntary sector groups and charitable companies etc, by offering our extensive experience so that more funds can be invested in their projects, services and the support which they provide.  We want groups to thrive and expand, but also remain compliant with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland, their guidelines and statutory requirements, if achieving charitable status.

WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU

Quality community accountancy services. There is ongoing advice inclusive here, for what you need to do for compliancy. Plus help around financial management. Brought to you by your local Community Accountants, qualified since 1996.

ACCOUNTS PREPARATION

Unlike many commercial accountants who charge clients by the hour, we offer a simple affordable method. No matter how much accountancy work needs to be done, the fee will remain the same, at 0.5% of your income, plus a fixed fee of £125 / £150 or £175 depending on the status of your organisation. This makes us very affordable, particularly to small groups, larger voluntary groups, newly registered charities and now also commercial enterprises.

PAYROLL

We can also provide you with payroll services for as little as £6 per month each employee all in. This includes all elements of payroll processing, paying staff direct & dealing with statutory elements to the Inland Revenue including year end returns, P11d's, P60's etc...

BY PAYING LESS FEES THIS MEANS YOU GET TO KEEP MORE OF YOUR MONEY

All groups, voluntary organisations and registered charities are required to produce accounts, providing them not only with up to date financial information, but also to assist them in obtaining further grant funding, as well as complying with their statutory obligations as outlined by both Charity and Company Law.  Here we can offer an affordable method based on the individual needs of the client, therefore making this service affordable to all, without impacting on vital free reserves. Why pay other NI accountants who charge fixed hourly rates, even for advice (ongoing help and advice is free from us when you become a client!)

INDEPENDENT EXAMINATIONS

All charities, regardless of legal structure, are now required to have their annual accounts scrutinised by an external person, the level of scrutiny will depend on income of the charity.  If a charity’s governing document contains a requirement that the accounts must be audited, then the governing document must be followed.

You are legally required to have your accounts independently examined and prepared, by someone who is qualified to do so. Many voluntary groups believe that their treasurer, banker or even best friend can do this for them, but it is not the case. The three different types of scrutiny and further information can be seen here:
