Our short, regular, advice clinics are perfect for addressing those accounting queries you can't find the answer to using Google or when you don't have access to an accountant who knows about not-for-profits.
Perfect for new treasurers or those who want reassurance that they are on the right track.
Our advice is confidential, personalised and in plain English.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What can you help with?
We can answer a wide variety of accounting related questions, both general and specific to not-for-profit accounting. These include
- Guidance for new treasurers who want 'get to grips' with their new position including the systems and records they have inherited.

We aim to help you be a more confident and effective treasurer, financial administrator or Board. We do not provide an accounting, audit or review service and we cannot provide financial advice. This means we will do not 'do the books' for you but will help you to be confident to do your own.
How does it work?
Tell us your question, we will research it before meeting with you and discussing your problem. We will follow up with a letter summarising our advice and links to helpful resources.
