Charity & Not-For-Profit Accountants
Johnston Smillie can provide your Charity or Not-for-profit with a wide range of specialist bookkeeping and accounting services.
As a significant growth area in the UK economy, it is not only essential that both charities and not-for-profit organisations operate on a business footing, they must also adhere to new and expanding regulations.
This requires a professional adviser with the necessary expertise and up-to-date knowledge of said regulations to offer the right support and guidance.
Enter Johnston Smillie.
A Changing Landscape
If you run a social enterprise, you will know first-hand just how the landscape has changed over the past few years.
Regulatory controls and compliance requirements have ushered in an era of complex accounting rules that raise more questions than answers.
That’s why it’s a good idea to delegate the accounting and finance of your charity or not-for-profit to a specialist charity accountant who understands the regulatory accounting needs of your organisation.
The Benefits of Working with JSCA
As well as the necessary expertise and up-to-date knowledge of the regulations, JSCA is proud to say that we have a number of individuals with an active interest in charities through voluntary work, trustee roles, and significant hands-on involvement.
You can therefore feel assured that when we assist you with all aspects of governance – as well as the obvious accounting and taxation requirements – we do so from a position of great experience.
Charities, professional associations and clubs will all benefit from our detailed knowledge of how these entities operate. This includes current experience of trustee status, constitutions, charity and other relevant legislation, systems and procedures and, of course, accounting, taxation and financial requirements.
What’s more, our three directors all have current positions as trustee or treasurer of organisations, and our staff are encouraged to use their own time as well as that of the Firm to expand their knowledge and provide a service to the wider community.
We Can Help
In order to continue to do good, you must ensure your charity or not-for-profit does not become sidetracked by the ever expanding regulatory controls.
And we can help. First, we’ll sit down together – in our offices, or yours – and discuss the challenges facing your organisation, and the ways in which we can overcome them.
We’ll then recommend, in plain English, the best way forward for your charity or not-for-profit, ensuring that we minimise tax liabilities, and maximise income.
