Charity Accounts & Independent Examinations
"The role of the independent examiner is to provide an independent scrutiny of the accounts, helping to maintain public trust and confidence in charities"
An independent examination should not be viewed solely as a check-the-box compliance exercise, but rather as a mechanism for fostering accountability and transparency. This ultimately helps to improve trust and confidence in the charity sector.
Our independent examinations are carried out in full accordance with the Charity Commission's directions and guidance for examiners (CC32). Furthermore, as part of our added value service we include a key controls evaluation report as standard, that provides an expert assessment of your charity's internal control environment — helping your trustees to meet their legal duties to safeguard the charity’s assets.
For an integrated and streamlined service, the independent examination may be carried out at the same time as your accounts preparation. We work closely with you to produce charity accounts that are transparent and fully compliant with the SORP and where applicable, company law.

As a registered social enterprise, we're participating in Social Enterprise UK's flagship campaign, 'Buy Social'.
Buying social is about using your money, as an individual or an organisation, to create a positive impact on the world we live in. When you buy from a social enterprise you are choosing to spend your money with a business that is giving something back, reinvesting their profits to address the most pressing issues, from homelessness and unemployment to ethical trade and climate change.
