Not for profits & grant audit services

Why do you need a specialist accountant?

Not-for-profit organisations

At LEES we recognise that not-for-profit organisations have very different requirements from other businesses. Our dedicated team of experts fully understand the complex, ever-changing regulatory requirements of the not-for-profit sector.

We act for many not-for-profit organisations across England, both large and small.

Not only can we ensure that your organisation’s tax requirement is kept to a minimum, but we can also help with audit and accountancy systems, advise on complex VAT requirements, advise on best practice and guidance on IT.
