Accountants for Charities and Education

James Cowper has a long history of involvement with charities, schools, academies and other not-for-profit organisations. We have more than 160 clients in this sector. Our specialist team keeps fully up-to-date with all the changes in accounting, tax and other legislation which affect charities and educational organisations.

We are also very familiar with the wider issues affecting the sector during a time of unprecedented external challenges.  As a result we can provide the right guidance to help our clients meet regulatory requirements and also operate in a more effective way to increase their positive impact on beneficiaries.

We work with a wide variety of clients, including grant-making charities, independent schools, academies, membership organisations and care charities, and tailor our advice to specific circumstances.  Whatever sector you are in we will communicate with you regularly to gain a thorough understanding of your organisation and the challenges and opportunities it faces.

James Cowper is committed to high standards of technical expertise, whether focused on audit, tax or other advisory services.  Members of our team have a strong charity sector focus, and receive training and support to make sure that they are aware of changing technical, tax and other issues affecting charities and educational organisations.  Key individuals are members of the ICAEW charity group and a number have specialist charity accounting qualifications.

We are members of the Kreston UK charities group, a network of independent accounting firms which share a common interest and specialisation in the charity sector.  The group advises over 1,300 charities throughout the UK and its members work closely together to share experience and expertise so that our clients benefit from a comprehensive range of services and specialist advice. Our membership of the Kreston International network also enables us to deal with any international issues.
