The charitable and not-for-profit sector has changed so much in the last few years and we at Martin Aitken & Co have ensured we have the knowledge and understanding to help our many charity clients be fully aware of their obligations, given the need for transparency and increased demands now placed on them.
We can assist you by ensuring accounts and returns are SORP compliant and meet the requirements of the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). Charities are a significant part of our client base and include many local charities and trusts ranging from horticulture, the arts, care organisations to medical and religious organisations. They range in size from small local charitable groups with income under £15,000 to very large Scottish religious groups and organisations providing child care nationally. Therefore regardless of size, we feel that all charities can benefit from our specialist services which include:
- Internal / External audit
- Internal controls healthcheck
- Trustee support
- Funding audits (eg. ESD, ERDF)
- Risk management
- Independent examination
- Governance training
- Bookkeeping and Management Accounts
- Trading subsidiaries
- Tax & Vat advice
