Charity & Not for Profit
Supporting the Charity & Not for Profit sector
At Carpenter Box we have considerable experience helping charities and not for profits 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 pro-active and based on our discussion with you, bringing together your trustees and management, and our knowledge of your charity and our experience in the sector. We use substantive and analytically-based testing, utilising our charity-specific audit software.
Sector head Robin Evans 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 first-hand experience in helping charities run efficiently and successfully.
“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.”
