Scrutinising a charity’s accounts below the level of a professional audit
The procedures are defined by law and by the Directions of the Charity Commission. The independent examiner will gain an understanding of the charity, look at the accounts and supporting documents and write an independent report to accompany the accounts and Trustees’ report.
When choosing an independent examiner, you should make sure that s/he is fully independent of your charity, and suitably qualified to be able to carry out a proper charity independent examination.
An independent examiner may be a charity treasurer or finance worker or an accountant from industry or the public sector. The key is that they must have a good understanding of charity finance and the law. To carry out an independent examination of a charity with an income above £250,000, the examiner must have a professional qualification or be a member of a professional body specified in the Charities Act 2006.
We can independently exam all accounts with an income up to £500,000
