This is an increasingly competitive space. So it is beneficial to work with specialist charity accountants who can also bring a commercial perspective to the work that you do.

Talk to us

At Alliotts, we have compiled a team that harnesses the expertise of audit, accounts and tax specialists. There is also a great deal of knowledge – drawn from our work with a vast array of charities, from small local organisations, right through to national networks. Indeed, many of our team also hold voluntary or honorary posts in not for profit or community organisations. Experience that means we have a clear understanding of the issues you are up against – and know better than most how to help you combat them.

But there’s an added layer of expertise that will come in very useful in today’s competitive arena. Your team will also have experience of working with a broad array of corporate clients. And we find that our charity and not for profit clients value the commercial perspective we can bring to their organisations.

  • Statutory accounts preparation
  • External and internal audit
  • Governance reviews and strategic planning
  • Accounting systems and management reporting
  • Efficiency and health check reviews
  • Acquisition and disposal of subsidiaries
  • Trustee training
  • Corporation tax and trading company utilisation
  • VAT minimisation reviews
  • PAYE and National Insurance planning, reviews and consultancy

    Not for profit

    Steve is highly experienced in providing advice and services to a wide range of not for profit clients. He is a trustee of a school charity group as well as a smaller local poverty relief charity and so really understands the challenges in the sector.


    “Alliotts have been working with Kings Canterbury for more than 10 years now and Steve Meredith is absolutely exceptional in being so accessible and hugely knowledgeable. He has helped streamline our accounting and advised us on looking at practical things like stock levels, IT systems and operating modes. All this has saved us money. What I really appreciate too is the clarity of thinking and the fact that we don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and ask for advice. Top marks!”

They’re easy to approach and always willing to lend support and give advice. At the end of the day they’re very professional but also have a friendly family feel.”
