Not for profit

Accountants for Charities and Not-For-Profit Organisations

Lewis Smith & Co. has made a speciality out of helping the not-for-profit sector manage their finances effectively and ensuring that their governance is maintained to the highest standards.

Our client base includes a variety of different not-for-profit organisations:

  • Business foundations
  • Charities
  • Community groups
  • Education support groups

The initial challenge for many not-for-profit organisations is that they are often comprised largely of volunteers, part-time staff and specialist service providers who have little or no financial experience.

In these circumstances many of Lewis Smith & Co’s clients in this sector have welcomed our ability firstly to get things up and running and secondly to ensure that team members are brought up to speed on how to manage accounts and look after items such as VAT.

What we then provide is the specialised knowledge required to ensure that organisations:

  • Conduct proper presentations of accounts to trustees
  • Adhere to the special reporting layouts required by HMRC
  • Correctly appropriate funds
  • Manages the independent examiners reviews
