Charity Accounting Service


Dealing with matters of money in faith-based organisations can be tricky, after all your priority is to serve the community, not be an expert in compliance and accounting.

It can be difficult to ensure your team are up-to-date on Charity Commission compliance standards and all administration requirements are met.

Our charity Accounting Service was created with the goal of providing a comprehensive support framework for you and your team. We understand the challenges that come with managing accounting processes, which is why we have designed our charity accountancy service to make it easier to manage and streamline all necessary tasks. With our assistance, you will have more time to allocate resources towards other areas of your organisation such as promotion and campaigns.

Our goal is to make your life easier, simplify the accounting process and give charity leaders and Trustees peace of mind.

GoodtoGive provides an affordable end-to-end, charity accountancy service for faith-based organisations and churches.

*Please note: We are not an accounting practice; we are an Accountant Management Company. Our Service Delivery Managers work collaboratively with our partner accountants to deliver a complete end-to-end service.

Why GoodtoGive's Charity Accounting Service?

We build and safeguard a strong financial reputation for your charity.

As an organisation entrusted with public funds, maintaining a high standard of ethical conduct when handling the money is of utmost importance. That's why we want you to be above reproach when it comes to dealing with public money.

We have been working with faith-based charities and churches for over a decade and our Charity Accounting Service is personalised to the needs of these organisations.

As a faith-based charity, we know that integrity and a high standard of moral conduct is paramount to you

Our job is to ensure that your accounting practices are above reproach and your organisation has an excellent financial reputation. Many church leaders assume that if the Charity Commission hasn't fined them for late accounts, everything is in order and there isn’t an issue. Here’s why that’s incorrect:

• Some of our clients didn’t know that their accounts were being filed late or hadn’t been filed at all. We don’t want that to be you.

• It is a legal requirement to file your accounts no later than 10 months after your charity's financial year ends, therefore it is a breach of the law not to file them on time.

• You can be disqualified from receiving funding from banks, organisations and local government for late accounts because it demonstrates poor financial stewardship.

• It can prevent donors and partners from supporting your charity because of poor financial transparency. When you don’t file your accounts on time, supporters don’t know what financial state your charity is in and may assume that you have something to hide.

What if you already have an accountant or volunteer managing your charity accounting process?

In reality, many charities are not receiving the level of service they require from their current accountant or volunteer. They may feel like they are bound by a sense of obligation to continue for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s due a lack of available alternatives or simply a lack of knowledge on how to find a suitable replacement. Unfortunately, your organisation cannot afford to take this approach when it comes to dealing with public money. Your donors trust you to steward the funds well.

Instead, it is better to choose a professional service. By doing so, you can have the peace of mind knowing that your financial records are accurate, up-to-date, and compliant with all the relevant laws and regulations.

If you’re looking for a professional accountant for your charity, our team can help you transition smoothly and continue to work with your team.
