Charities and not for profit organisations

With frequent regulation changes and time consuming reports, Acumen are here to help you and give you extra time to do what you do best, help others. Our in-house experts have worked with a number of charitable and not-for-profit organisations so we have an understanding of the needs and requirements when it comes to finances.

Whether you require your accounts to be prepared on the receipts and payments basis or the accruals basis we can tailor our services to provide you with as much support as you need from preparing the accounts from manual records to taking your trial balance as our starting point.

Acumen can ensure you have the most appropriate accounting systems in place for your charity, taking into account your resources and the number of transactions you process on a monthly basis.

We will also ensure that your accounts comply with all of the latest charity regulations.  Our employees are dedicated to keeping up with changes to the regulations and legislation which affect charity accounting and will advise you when these changes are going to impact on you.
