Can you advise on the best structure for my Charity?

We deal with charitable organisations of many type. From simple unincorporated charities through to CIC's and charitable companies. Trading subsidiaries are also a common way of ringfencing trading risk from the asserts of the charity. We can advise on initial structures or reorganisations of your charitable organisation to ensure you are fully equipped for the future. Get in touch to talk to one of our team.

Can Lovewell Blake handle all my workplace pension requirements as well as the monthly payroll administration?

Our payroll services cover all necessarily administrative requirements including workplace pensions or Auto Enrolment as it can be referred to. We will submit reports to the appointed pension administrator when payroll is run and the deductions will be paid over directly. Employees will be contacted directly by the pension administrator so that between us we handle enrolment, opting out and the deductions.

How easy is it to change accountants?

It is generally very straightforward to move to Lovewell Blake from another accountant. We will write to your previous adviser for professional clearance and also obtain copies of selected historic information such as last years accounts and tax references. We will then issue a letter of engagement and register as your tax agent direct with HMRC.
