We know at JW Smeaton that financial management is always a priority, and a challenge, for charities and not-for-profits. Precious time is spent dealing with financial matters which would be better spent working in your core areas.
At JW Smeaton, we stick to a ‘no surprises’ policy to keep things simple and affordable for you. All registered New Zealand charities appear on the Charities Register. This includes a copy of your annual return, so it is important this is done professionally by an experienced charity accountant.
Some areas in which we can help:
Meeting reporting obligations
Keeping up-to-date with legislation
Managing tax risks
We can assist you from the start in setting up a charity or not-for-profit, to every day financial administration, and if required, dissolution.
To find out more about your responsibilities under the Charities Act 2005, visit Charities Services (formerly Charities Commission, now part of the Department of Internal Affairs).
