As specialists in the sector, Champion Accountants brings decades of experience in providing comprehensive accounting packages for charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Our services include charity audits, accounts preparation, IT support, payroll and tax advice.
With several members of the team acting as trustees of local charities, we’re able to provide an empathetic, knowledgeable, and hands-on approach, which our clients value. By taking the time to get to know your charity, we provide effective support, identifying areas for improvement.
Once your charity audit is completed, we’ll continue to work closely with your team or finance committee, following up on any observations or recommendations. And because we take a proactive approach, we’ll keep up-to-date with the relevant regulatory changes, ensuring you’re kept in the loop too.
We’ve worked with hundreds of charities across the region, spanning Manchester, Preston, Chester, Blackpool and more; acting for clients in the following areas:
- Schools and education
- Religious and contemplative orders
- Charities providing services in the field of learning disabilities
- Registered social landlords
- Not for profit organisations, including Community Interest Companies (CIC’s)
- Grant making charities
- Charities working in the theatre and the arts
Over the years, we’ve supported charities with little to no formal reporting, implementing a more structured process, leading to increased transparency for the charity. Our team is also able to provide in-house support for those organisations needing extra assistance with their finance function.
Adding value to the charity sector
As well as ensuring you meet your financial and legal obligations, we work hard to strengthen your financial position. By taking a hands-on approach, we’ll help to place you in a better position to support your charity’s aims.
Accounting software for charities
We work alongside your finance team to ensure your software meets your charity’s needs. We’ll make software recommendations, implement systems and provide training and ongoing support to your team.
