At Smith Cooper, we are experts with regard to the charities and not-for-profit sector.
We appreciate the passion that drives these organisations and the dedication that it takes to make them succeed.
It is undoubtedly a challenging sector, with constant changes and uncertainty in the funding environment, complex and vast regulation, and often a competitive marketplace. But this is where we can help.
Offering a dedicated, partner-led team of experts, we take the time to fully understand your organisation and your aspirations, devising and providing bespoke advice on how to achieve your goals and navigating you through the complex web of regulation.
Over many years, we have accumulated and cultivated significant experience and expertise in the sector. Our personable specialists work closely with charitable enterprises and are experts in providing concise and commercially viable advice with a hands-on approach.
We have a strong team of compliance experts who are experienced in performing audits and independent examinations of charities reporting under the Charities SORP, community benefit societies and companies limited by guarantee. As well as our specifically trained accountants and auditors, our team includes specialists who understand the more complex tax challenges that the sector faces in relation to VAT, including partial exemption and corporation tax.
Overall, our multifaceted team have established a strong local network, and we pride ourselves on the holistic range of services we’re able to offer to charities at highly competitive rates. We strive for excellence in the service that we provide, operating both locally and further afield. We focus on developing strong and trusting relationships with our clients, becoming a trusted adviser who understands their operations, passions and ambitions, therefore allowing us to be very effective in what we do, and down to earth in how we do it.
We love hearing about the work being undertaken in this sector and are eager to be involved, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
