We are a firm of Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors offering accountancy services primarily to those with the not-for-profit and co-operative sector. We work with co-operatives, community interest companies, community benefit societies, and charities throughout the UK. Although our office is in Manchester, we have staff around the UK (and Germany) and run a paperless office. We are currently a team of fifteen, able to offer a wealth of accounting, auditing and book-keeping experience and skills
We are a value-driven organisation, and our primary purpose is to support and encourage positive social change by providing quality financial services. We started 5 years ago as a group of friends determined to help make the world a better place by using their expertise to provide top quality financial services to social change organisations.

While the firm itself is new (formed in 2017), the individuals involved have extensive and long-standing experience of the sector. We value experience in the third sector. Almost all staff have personal experience of working for co-operatives and charities in finance roles; and of setting up co-operatives and raising finance for them using loan stock, or community shares and taking advantage of the investment tax reliefs available. We have a commitment to sharing our experience and expertise so that we can help promote growth in the sector.
We are uniquely organised as a worker co-operative. This means that all staff are highly motivated, interested in the sector and in their clients, and take ownership of their work. We believe that being a co-operative leads to a better outcome for us and for our clients.
