Congratulations to (SVE) for putting on an excellent evening of celebration for the amazing volunteers in Stirling.  It was fantastic to meet the individuals who were behind the applications and to hear from their own words, the difference they make for others, through using their own time and skills.

Financial Services from SVE

Offer 4: Finance

Let’s face it, annual accounts can be a headache - but SVE offers professional, affordable accounting services from qualified and experienced staff that can take the pressure off you: 

Preparation of Accounts (Receipts and Payments)
If your organisation is required only to produce Receipts and Payments accounts, we offer a Preparation of Accounts service. 

Independent Examination of Accounts
If you are a charity with an annual income of under £250K, SVE can offer you a professional Independent Examination service that will help you meet your legal requirements (and avoid having your accounts returned by OSCR).

Both of these services are chargeable, and we will provide a scale of charges up front so you can be clear about what is involved from the outset.

Rates vary according to the complexity and size of your organisation, but we aim to keep costs as low as possible – after all, as an organisation, we are here to give help and support to charities and voluntary groups. If an organisation genuinely cannot afford to pay, we can discuss options.

SVE training courses regularly cover financial topics, including Bookkeeping, Receipts and Payments Accounting and Choosing an Independent Examiner. Those attending courses will also receive resources such as policy templates and electronic accounting spreadsheets.
