Complying with the statutory obligations, while also fulfilling the charity’s objectives, can put a strain on any charitable organisation.

Charities face many regulatory and compliance pressures, and our job is to work alongside you to overcome these challenges. Whether it involves providing guidance through new legislative changes, or educating trustees on their roles and responsibilities, we are always available to help.

We assist many charities across the UK, each with its own unique circumstances and requirements.

Several of our team members belong to independent charity boards and have personal experience in this

field.

We are available to answer your questions throughout the year. Here are some of the areas that we assist with:

• Assurance services: independent examination and audit

• Loan funds accessibility: includes national and local grants

• Assistance with tax-related matters including VAT

• Financial forecasting and modelling

• Assisting with account compliance in preparation for a charity’s Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP)

• Guidance and training

• Choosing the most appropriate charitable structure

• Advisory presence during trustee meetings, offering professional insights

• General advice and training on accounting systems

This latter role enabled her to experience the day to day of a business as it traded and planned and implemented its development strategy. As an Associate in Gerald Thomas, Rachel provides audit and accountancy compliance and other business advisory services to a diverse portfolio of clients, ranging in size from micro businesses to groups with turnover of in excess of £100m. The businesses that she advises span a range of industries and she leads a team of around 15 staff. Rachel has applied the practical experience of advising clients on the day to day issues they face including the impact of Coronavirus and guiding them in their future plans. I'm here to help. I'm volunteering free advice calls of up to an hour as part of the Recovery Advice for Business scheme, over the next 6 months. Please get in touch to see how I can help your business.
