We have a significant focus and depth of commitment to the not-for-profit and charitable sector.
Supporting you not-for-profit/charitable organisation's aims is our business. We understand your sector; acting as auditors or advisors to a significant number of New Zealand charities, trusts, incorporated societies and other not-for-profit membership organisations.
Our team is local and experienced and utilise a customised audit methodology for not-for-profit and charitable organisations. Our audit approach places an emphasis on early planning and an understanding of not-for-profit organisations that allows us to tailor our procedures to their specific needs. The result is an effective independent audit that allows you to identify process improvements and plan more accurately for the future.
In addition, we work with a number of philanthropists and funders of the not-for-profit sector and thus understand, from their perspective, the challenges of allocating funding between competing interests.
Your charity. Our focus.
We know running a not-for-profit/charitable organisation isn't always straightforward. With so many regulations to follow it can be easy to lose sight of the principle aims of your charity – to help others. When you choose RSM you can be reassured we have all the financial, governance and management knowledge and experience your charity needs, so you can concentrate on what is most important to you and your funders.
Meeting your individual needs
By getting to know our clients, we find the right solutions, whatever you need.
Ensuring your audit adds value
Audits don't have to be onerous and our approach is to assess the size and complexity of your charity before we begin auditing; we aren't interested in just ticking boxes, we want to know what makes our charity clients tick.
Making a difference to how you operate
Other key areas where we can make a difference to your charity include coping with funding changes, identifying your social impact, managing charity tax risks, carrying out independent governance reviews, managing financial difficulties and maximising scarce reserves, finding effective ways to work collaboratively or to merge, and establishing new social enterprises.
