Accountants in charity

Charity or Not-for-profit Budgeting

Are you responsible for a not-for-profit or charity organization’s budget or planning process? If so we recognise you face different challenges from financial managers or accountants in the corporate world:
  • Fluctuating and unpredictable income
  • Limited and restricted funds
  • A greater need for accountability
  • More non-finance people involved in the budgeting process
  • Workers in different parts of the country or world
Being able to plan, forecast and budget accurately and with ease is crucial for charities, but it can be a real nightmare without the right tools – and many charities can’t afford or need all the frills of more specialised technologies used in the commercial world. So what choice do you have? You, end up using spreadsheets to plan and manage funds because you perceive this as a ‘low-cost” solution – but the reality is, it often costs more in wasted time, effort and resources.
