Independent Examination Service

Are you struggling to find an Independent Examiner who is knowledgeable about church or charity accounts? If your income is below £250,000 and if you are using our accounts software MyFundAccounting.Online or Finance Co-ordinator we can help.

An Independent Examination is a form of external scrutiny from a person who is independent of the church or charity and provides a limited check on specific matters, this is different to a full audit. An Independent Examiner is only required to confirm whether any material matters of concern have come to their attention whereas an auditor is required to provide an opinion on whether a charity’s accounts give a ‘true and fair view’.

Our examination involves a review of the accounting records kept and a comparison of the accounts presented with those records. It also includes a review of the accounts and looks at any unusual items or matters of concern that may have come to light. The report that we produce will comment on the accounting records kept, whether these agree with the accounts and if the format of the accounts is correct. In this work and using our experience, we will help the treasurer and trustees by providing guidance and assurance where appropriate throughout the process. Our aim is to help the Church or Charity produce better accounts.

The costs for our Independent Examination are 0.5% of your annual income or £250 whichever is the greater. To sign up or to have a chat with us please either call our sales line on 01902 714030 or email sales@datadevelopments.co.uk
