Charity Accounts and Independent Examination

We prepare Charity Accounts and act as Independent Charity Examiners.

The trustees will usually be able to choose an independent examination instead of an audit if the charity's gross income is:

  • more than £25,000, but not more than £1 million , provided that
  • if its gross income is more than £250,000, its gross assets (fixed assets plus current assets) are £3.26 million or less

Since 2015 charities with an income over £250,000 must use an examiner from a body listed in Appendix 5 of CC32, The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) is listed.

We hold a full practising certificate from CIMA.

We are also Affiliate members of the ACIE (Association of Charity Independent Examiners) and members of the ACAT (Association of Church Accountants and Treasurers).

Our Clients include a Sports Charity accredited to British Gymnastics and we have also acted for a Veterans Charity which developed and operates 44 flats, community hub and training facilities.
