Helping you to make a difference
It is a difficult time for the charitable sector and constant changes in regulation don’t make it any easier. At MHA 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.
Our audit approach is supportive and proactive and based on our discussion with you – your trustees and management, our knowledge of your charity and our experience in the sector. We use substantive and analytically-based testing, utilising our charity-specific audit software.
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 MHA Carpenter Box partners serve as Charity Trustees, and really do have first-hand experience in helping charities run efficiently and successfully. In addition, as part of MHA 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*)
We produce a regular charity e-newsletter and hold seminars to keep charity managers and trustees up-to-date with important sector issues. Register for seminars and newsletters here.
