We don’t just work with charities to raise funds; we also ensure provide audit, accounting, tax, VAT, governance and risk management services.

Dains has a team of specialist professionals who have gained the ICAEW Diploma in Charity Accounting and receive on-going training so that they can offer non-profit organisations the very latest advice.

Charity audit is the assurance that appropriate accounting policies and processes are being applied and irregularities in financial reporting are identified. It is also an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of financial controls and management systems, to assist in identifying risks and how to minimise them. As regulation continues to increase, The Charities Act legislation and the Charity Commissioners guidance have to be followed. Audit needs can vary with the size and type of charity.

Dains provides a complete and efficient service in a highly complex and regulated field. We currently represent a large number of local and national charities.

Our advice goes beyond Charity audit and we are also able to advise on the following areas:

  • Strategy review
  • Income recognition
  • Training for trustees
  • Risk management review
  • VAT
  • Financial structure review
  • Accounting and payroll support
  • Audit of public funds
  • Operational structure
  • Governance
  • Fraud investigations

As regulation continues to increase, let the Dains team guide your organisation through the accounting minefield, so that you can concentrate on making a difference to people’s lives.
