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.
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 £150. This makes us very affordable, particularly to small groups, voluntary organisations and newly registered charities.
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...
Every voluntary organisation has different ways in which they want their finances represented through book-keeping systems. We pride ourselves on being able to provide either manual or computerised systems that are tailored around your specific needs.
We offer a wide range of services particularly to groups, voluntary organisations and registered charities, those with an annual turnover of up to £250,000. For the services shown below we guarantee new customers that we will always beat the price you are currently paying, on the production to us of your last annual accountancy invoices.
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?
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:
