We are delighted to publish our Directors’ Report & Financial Statements for The Year Ended 31 January 2022 as approved by our members.
The financial year proved to be another year of great success and growth for the co-operative, in terms of financial health & profitably and more importantly our continued and enhanced ability to support and encourage positive social change by providing quality financial services to a range of incredible clients operating in the charitable, not-for-profit and co-operative sector.
Turnover for the financial year ended 31 January 2022 increased by £154,149 (40.4%) to £534,911. This was driven in the main by enhanced capacity to deliver services caused by an increase in headcount which abled the organisation to grow our client base.
Gross profit & margins increased from £58,228 (15.3%) in the year ended 31 January 2022 compared to £90,558 (16.9%) in the prior financial period. The co-operative recorded a healthy £14,948 surplus before taxation for the year ended 31 January 2022, an increase of £5,987 from the previous financial year.
We work with co-operatives, community interest companies, community benefit societies, charities and other non-for-profit organisations throughout the UK. See client list for just a sample of some of the amazing organisations that we work alongside.
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 in 2017 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.
