Charities, the voluntary sector and not-for-profit organisations are facing a more challenging environment now than ever before and so it’s essential to have an accountant who understands the fast changing nature of this sector, which has more regulatory and compliance requirements than most.

Smailes Goldie has a specialist group of accountants providing specific services for charities and not-for-profit organisations.  Having built up a large portfolio of clients in this area, we can provide you with expert advice in terms of compliance with the Charities Act and the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP).

We are highly proactive and get involved with Trustees to help plan strategy and compliance work.  We keep up-to-date with the latest developments in UK Charity Law, application of the SORP to the annual report and accounts, audits and independent examinations.  Our taxation services include advice on VAT, Gift Aid procedures, investments and funding.

Smailes Goldie also provides specialist advice and support on charitable status, incorporation and new legal charitable incorporated organisations (CIO).  We can deal with external and internal audits as well as funding audits, including ESD and ERD Funding.

Our partner, Steve Bramall FCA, has significant expertise helping charitable organisations and is often asked to advise on more detailed issues affecting the third sector. His pro-active approach means he gives input to charities on a regular basis.

Smailes Goldie also provides essential back-up to charities through our specialist division SG Outsourcing, which provides bookkeeping and payroll services, advice on accounting systems and management of information.
