International non-governmental organisations (INGOs)

If you like your rewards to come hand-in-hand with challenges, you’re at home in international development. So how exactly do you juggle international accounting, compliance and donor regulations with the logistics of charity work on a global scale?

It’s fair to say, an INGO's lot is not a simple one. Mastering the above is your key to success in an evolving sector. To pull it off, consider working with a partner like us. Take advantage of our experience to help you tackle those challenges and use our network to hear about the latest sector regulations and developments.

Meaningful advice for organisations in international development

A team works best when everyone gets the most from working together. We take the time to understand your unique history, structure and charitable focus, including visiting you overseas to gain a first-hand no-frills picture of your working environment. We know there’s more to supporting you than technical advice.

  • Practical support for INGOs 
  • Audit and accounting
  • Management and governance structures
  • Financial systems and controls, including working with in-country finance teams
  • Risk management and monitoring
  • Working with partner organisations
  • Tax and VAT services
  • HR and employment support for staff overseas
  • Professional grant audits

When it comes to compliance and measuring impact, donor-funded grants go under a magnifying glass. And when funding and project management is this complex, you need specialist support to handle the scrutiny. That’s where we come in.

Our dedicated charity and not-for-profit team works with various funders of the international NGO sector. These include USAID, the European Commission, the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Swedish International Development Coordination Agency (SIDA). Understandably these institutions need to be sure their money is spent as intended, reasonably and legally. Hence the grant audit.

Transparent accountable reporting

Work with our specialists to put in place robust controls and audit-ready financial reporting. Because we know what each funder needs to see, we can recommend best practice and pinpoint where you can add value. Better still, we have the knowledge and network to organise grant audits across the globe.
