haysmacintyre’s award-winning Charities team is one of the largest in the country. We are auditor to more of the top 5,000 charities than any other UK Accountancy firm (Charity Financials’ league table; correct at time of submission).  We providehigh-quality compliance, taxation and advisory services to over 600UKand international charities and not for profit organisations.  Our clients include hospices and care based charities, medical research charities, arts and culture organisations, faith charities, professional institutes and membership bodies and independent and academy schools.  As a mid-tier firm, we are large enough to provide a wide range of services, yet small enough to offer a personal, responsive approach.

Operating from a single office in London, we have a team of Partners, directors and managers who all specialise in the Not for Profit Sector and who are experts in understanding our clients and the specific challenges they face. 

Our personal, dedicated service is built around your needs and we work closely with our clients to help them achieve the best results. We not only make sure they comply with charity laws and regulations, we can also help them reduce your costs, identify and manage risk, find new sources of funding and be better equipped to achieve their aims.

We produce regular updates and briefings, including our popular Charity and Not for Profit eNews, as well as various benchmarking reports, sector-specific briefings and in depth articles.

We run training and topical seminars for charities throughout the year which provide trustees and staff the opportunity to meet and network with others in similar organisations or facing similar challenges. Our charity partners also speak at our Trustee Training programme, run in partnership with Farrer & Co and Cazenove.

We are active members of the CFG (Charity Finance Group), ISBA (Independent Schools’ Bursars Association), AGBIS (Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools) and CIAN (Charities Internal Audit Network) and sponsor ACEVO’s Arts & Heritage SIG.

We are proud to have been voted in the top five firms for the last eleven years for ‘charity expertise’ in the Charity Finance Audit Survey.
