Murray Smith has an experienced not for profit team who act for a large number of charities based in and around Cheshire. We understand how charities work and what makes them different to profit based companies.

The principal services which we provide are the preparation of year end accounts under the Charities SORP, annual audits, monthly management accounting and monthly payroll.

We can also help on a more strategic basis, through providing practical advice on the charity’s future direction or assistance with mergers or acquisitions.

Reducing your costs

All charities are looking to reduce their cost base. Murray Smith’s state of the art IT systems and efficient working practices mean that we may be able to provide the high quality services you need at a lower cost. If you would like to receive a fixed fee quotation Mike or one of his team would be very happy to come out and see you and talk through your requirements.

Sixth Form Colleges

We have provided audit services to the sixth form sector since colleges were first incorporated in 1994. We offer an attractive alternative to the international accountancy firms, giving a high quality and reliable service which provides true value for money.

We offer continuity of staff which is critical to achieving an efficient and effective audit and allows us to build good working relationships with the finance staff of the College. Our people have many years experience of College audits and we expect that staff at our current engagements would be able to vouch for our knowledge, experience and friendly manner.
