We are an independent top 10 firm of chartered accountants and business advisors based in Canary Wharf.  With in-depth expertise in many fields of tax, accountancy and finance, we work for clients ranging from large, listed corporates and SMEs to individuals, their families and their businesses.

Not for Profit Team

The Not for Profit (NFP) team has an impressive pool of knowledge and experience to share and from which to learn.  The team is led by partners with extensive experience in the sector; not only of auditing and advising large, high profile NFP entities but some have also seen things from the client’s side where they have run and assisted in the governance of global international charities.

Our clients, ranging in size from turnover of £100,000 to £1bn, are distinguished by the fact that they exist for a social purpose, rather than by what they do day to day. This means the NFP world encompasses everything from radical campaigning organisations to big businesses with a public benefit remit.  This is an exciting time for anyone with an interest in the sector to be joining our NFP team and in return for your enthusiasm to develop and learn we can offer you the opportunity to build a rewarding career.
