Charities and Not for Profit Organisations

Charities and other NFPs are under huge pressure nowadays as sources of government funding have been diminished and competition in the sector increased. Smaller charities in particular, including clubs, often don’t have the resources to employ accountants and accordingly many find it more cost-effective to buy-in expertise on an 'as-and-when' basis. M&S advises and assists a broad range of charities across Scotland, with particular emphasis on the following:
