We Take Care of Everything You Need

Get professional tax advice from specialist charity accountants in the UK and Ireland.

Our accountants have helped charities, of all types, navigate successfully amid ever-changing government legislation. We aim to support an innovative approach for managing finances, maintaining an efficient operation, and staying fully compliant.

When it comes to accountancy, charities and not for profits have very specific needs that need to be considered. That’s why it’s important to work with a firm who specialises in providing charity accounting services. Whether you are just starting out or are an established charity looking for new auditors, we can provide a full range of services.

At MJ Kane, we have a dedicated not for profit team in Dunfermline and Edinburgh who can help you meet all your statutory requirements and obligations.

How our Accountants can help you!

  • Annual Accounts Tailored To Charities

    At MJ Kane, we provide statutory accounts preparation compliant with Charities Act, Charities SORP and other applicable legislation. You can trust MJ Kane to deliver your not for profit’s accounting needs.

  • Audit and Independent Examinations

    No matter what stage your charity or not for profit is at, we can provide the support you need to make sure your finances are fully compliant and in good shape. We are committed to delivering a robust, high-quality audit. Our aim is to provide assurance and peace of mind to trustees while also offering practical support and advice.

  • Compliance and Assurance

    Legislation requires that most charities conduct an external audit or an independent examination of charity accounts.

    Our dedicated accounting team can meet your charity audit requirements, offering compliance with the Charities Act and Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) with services ranging from an annual audit to independent examinations of charity accounts, or specialist grant return certification audits.

  • VAT & Tax Planning

    VAT for charities can be a particularly complex area but that’s where our specialists come in. Our accountants are equipped to tackle your VAT position whether it be related to property, partial exemption or fundraising ventures. As charity accountants we have detailed knowledge and experience of charity tax exemptions and relief and how to structure your activities in the most tax-efficient way.

    We can help to introduce systems and procedures for VAT management and effective tax planning or offer a VAT health check service. Providing you with a clear understanding of your obligations, we can help you to avoid any potentially expensive mistakes or potential penalties from HMRC.

  • Full Range Accounting for Charities and Not For Profit Organisations
    • Any outsourced accounting needs for tax returns and financial statements
    • Assurance reviews of internal controls, including restructuring suggestions, if necessary
    • Prepare HMRC tax forms
  • Who Do We Help?

    We have a strong experience and reputation in the charity and not for profit sector. This means we can offer a series of specialist services and advice, in addition to your regular accounting work. At MJ Kane, we can work with:

    • Local, regional and national charities
    • Environmental, arts and leisure charities
    • Churches and faith-based charities
