CHARITY & NOT FOR PROFIT
Specialist knowledge – Real solutions
It is a difficult time for the charitable sector and constant changes in regulation don’t make it any easier. At Carpenter Box we have considerable experience helping charities and NFPs of all shapes and sizes. We understand the challenges and we are able to offer cost-effective advice that offers real value to your charity so it can achieve its charitable objectives whilst complying with charity law.
We have a dedicated Charities Group which is headed by Eileen Houghton. Eileen has been awarded the ICAEW Diploma in Charity Accounting.
Eileen is supported by Robin Evans as well as a group of caring and professional managers. They provide proactive and strategic advice. Eileen and the team have many years experience within the charity and not for profit sector. A number of Carpenter Box partners serve as Charity Trustees, and have really do have first-hand experience in helping a charities run efficiently and successfully. In addition, as part of Carpenter Box’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, the firm, maintains its own Charitable Foundation, raising money and offering small grants to Sussex based grass roots charities.
These are some of the areas we can assist with:
- Accounts preparation
- Audit and independent examination
- Governance and related issues
- Strategic planning
- Trading entities
- VAT & corporation tax
- Incorporation and registration
- Treasury services (with Carpenter Box Wealth Management LLP*)
“Carpenter Box has looked after our annual accounts preparation and audit for the past ten years, but has also given us business advice and compliance work, particularly with respect to tax authorities and the charity commission. I think they have always striven for the highest standards in all the work they do. I have really valued the unstinting support that I have received from Carpenter Box, which has, ultimately, enabled us to develop internally. Their support has been invaluable.”
