Accountants for charities and not-for-profit organisations

With practices in London and Kent, we gratefully acknowledge the communities in which we operate for contributing so much to our success. As a way of expressing our gratitude, we have a long history of participating in and donating to local projects.

In addition to that, we offer highly specialised accounting services to charities and the non-profit sector, ensuring that they make the most of every penny they raise to benefit their service-users and the worthy causes that have inspired their formation.

Perrys acts for a wide range of charities and not-for-profit organisations. In many respects, these bodies function just like a regular business, but we understand the unique challenges they face. To this end, our dedicated charity and not-for-profit accounting team keeps fully up to date with the intricacies of rapidly changing legislation and compliance requirements which affect the charity sector.

Specialist charity and non-profit accounting support

Non-profit companies and charities can have many different revenue streams and each of these must be accounted for. As well as straightforward pledges, donations and membership dues, there are more complex considerations such as volunteer time, entrance fees for fundraising events, investments, grants and lump sums. We will help you to keep abreast with all this, so your charity can run smoothly and legally.

We tailor our advice to specific circumstances, addressing technical issues relating to tax, audits and the reporting and recording of financial information in line with best practice. We make sure you are claiming all relevant tax relief and exemptions, and offer day-to-day support with bookkeeping, preparation of accounts and financial statements.

Tax-efficient fundraising and planning

In order to maximise the value of every penny given and accrue tax advantages for charities and non-profit organisations, it's vital to plan ahead. Charitable giving in the UK benefits from a generous tax regime. Our in-depth knowledge of the sector means we can help you to optimise tax incentives such as Gift Aid, payroll giving, legacies and share options.

Accountancy expertise for foster carers

HMRC treat foster caring as a business. Many foster carers, in addition to the full-time and often demanding caring roles that they have taken on, find that they are suddenly faced with preparing annual accounts and completing self-assessment tax returns, being liable for income tax and National Insurance.
