Not-for-profits and charities

Imagine being supported by a team that’s committed to helping you just as much as you help others.

We understand the environment not-for-profit organisations operate in, including the risks of relying on government funding and the complexity of administering and accounting for the funds provided.

We do whatever we can to support organisations that improve our community. So whether you need help negotiating the minefield of regulations for registering your organisation, implementing robust money-handling processes or setting up your board, we have the people, passion and expertise to help you move forward.

  • Setting up your non-profit organisation

    With the right advice, even the most challenging tasks become achievable. We know the requirements for registering and operating non-profit organisations inside out, making it easier for you to start doing great things.

    • Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) applications
    • Structuring and restructuring advice

    Tap into our expertise to take the pressure off your accounting team. We understand the NFP sector, and can help with everything from preparing monthly finance reports to filling in when your accountant is on leave.
