Accounting and Bookkeeping for Charities in London

Charities are required to keep detailed financial records, file tax returns and submit to external scrutiny (dependent on size). Like any other business organisation, charities must also comply with the necessary tax rules and regulations set out by HM Revenue & Customs.

There are particular requirements for most charities to:

  • Prepare charity accounts and an annual report
  • Arrange an audit or independent examination (dependent on size)
  • Submit an annual return, annual report and accounts to the Charity Commission (and, for limited company charities, to Companies House).
  • Maintain full and accurate accounting records

Charity accounts and audits are governed by a number of complex rules and regulations. That's why it is important to seek the support and advice of a firm of accountants specialising in the charities sector.
