In recent years issues of reporting and accountability have assumed much greater importance to charities. Users of accounts whether funders or beneficiaries expect to know how the charity spends its money and to see how efficient and effective it is.
The Charities Act 2006 and the latest statement of recommended accounting practice (SORP 2005) form the new framework for reporting but trustees also need to be aware of wider governance issues as well as the opportunities which come from good presentation and promotion of what the charity is doing.
At DNG we believe that the well run charity will make more of an impact in its area of service and will more easily attract grants and donations in an increasingly competitive market. DNG has developed a wealth of experience in this area and acts for a large number of local and national organisations. We offer a full service of accounts preparation, audit and independent examination.
In addition to these compliance services we can also advise upon accounting systems, payroll, the duties and responsibilities of trustees, gift aid requirements and efficient charity organisation.
