Partner Jane Marshall heads up a team of 35 specialists

The team has a wealth of specific expertise and experience in providing auditing, accounting, business and tax advisory services to charities and not for profit organisations. 

We act for over 250 charities & not for profit organisations. Clients include incorporated entities, trusts, academies and social enterprises, carrying out diverse activities. They vary in size and include large organisations with complex fund structures.

We are ranked at number 21 in the December 2018 Charity Finance magazine annual survey of charity audit firms. We scored 100% for charity expertise and 97% for the provision of client service, placing us in the third highest position in the UK.

A number of the members of BHP’s charity team hold the ICAEW Diploma in Charity Accounting (DChA), demonstrating BHP’s high level of competence in charity accounting and financial management which make a real difference to organisations in the charity sector. Many members of the team are also charity trustees and school governors with a deep understanding of the challenges that charity trustees face.

BHP’s charity accountants can help organisations to:

  • Maximise income and minimise costs
  • Trade without incurring a tax liability
  • Maximise income from Gift Aid
  • Minimise irrecoverable VAT
  • Put controls in place in financial systems to protect charity funds
  • Produce annual accounts that are transparent, thereby putting you in the best position to attract additional funding.
  • Ensure the audit process adds value

In order to help charities to reap the benefits outlined above, BHP offers a range of services that are bespoke to the Charity and Not for Profit sector.
