Charities

We also understand what a challenge that can be. With so many changes in legislation to stay abreast of it can be a struggle to keep compliant, but that’s where we can help.

Whether it’s an independent examination or a full audit that’s required, we can provide you with precisely the level of support you need. We already support a wide range of not-for-profit organisations from the very small to those with income in the millions, so we’re an experienced accountancy partner.

How do we do it? Well, we like to be proactive. Our charity clients seem to appreciate a ‘collaborative’ approach where we help them get it right rather than just point out where they’ve gone wrong!
We also understand that running a charity is very much like running a business and a lot of our charity clients appreciate the experience and proactivity we bring from our experiences in the commercial sector.

So at TW, we believe we can help from:

  • Support in complying with all legal requirements
  • Acting as a sounding board for important decisions
  • Proactive advice – helping you to stay up to date in a sector where legislation can be quite ‘fluid’
  • Timely turnaround of accounts
  • Training/guidance for Trustees
  • Commercial/business advice

All of the above can be delivered at a fixed price. You can pick up the phone and speak to a trusted advisor whenever you need their help without worrying about “how much will this call cost me?”

If this is the kind of relationship and service that appeals to you then why not meet with us, completely free of charge, when we would be happy to discuss what we can do for you.

The team not only developed and manage internal processes to ensure continuity and high standards within the department, but has contributed greatly to further developing controls, reports and the chart of accounts. TW are actively involved in our audit process, the day to day management of accounts and are running the payroll.”TW are a diligent, helpful and professional team and have supported the Board of Trustees and Senior Management in addition to encouraging junior members of staff during a difficult period. The team have also engaged hugely with other departments, participating actively in wider elements of hospice life. It’s a pleasure to work with such professionals.”

At TW we understand that complying with legislation is one of the key responsibilities of running any charity
