Not for profit​

Not-for-profit (NFP) organisations benefit from specialist accounting and business advisory support to navigate policy change, funding challenges and compliance.
Making an impact

Not-for-profit (NFP) companies operate in a complex and dynamic social, economic and political landscape. To ensure their commercial longevity, NFPs must address key challenges while retaining transparent and robust accounting, tax and business structures and processes.

Increasing accountability requirements for NFPs place pressure on resources, especially for smaller organisations that cannot employ full time staff to assure these requirements are met. External business advisory and accounting professionals help to bridge this gap, ensuring NFPs have the support they need to make an impact. It is also crucial for NFPs to consider board governance as they have the same level of accountability as large corporate and commercial companies.

Supporting Australia’s NFPs

Pitcher Partners is experienced in supporting not-for-profit organisations as they deal with ongoing challenges, including policy change, funding issues, governance demands and enhanced compliance obligations. We work with a diverse range of organisations across the NFP sector, including:

  • Charities
  • Charitable trusts
  • Social housing organisations
  • Community care organisations
  • Sporting and recreation clubs
  • Cultural organisations

Not-for-profit organisations need to address unique challenges and take advantage of evolving opportunities in order to sustain, grow and maximise their impact.

Challenges

NFPs must navigate a range of ongoing and complex challenges, including a lack of sufficient funding and resources, increasing regulatory compliance obligations, board exposure to personal risk, and a high turnover of staff and loss of skilled talent.

Opportunities

Despite the challenges of operating in a highly regulated environment, NFPs also have many opportunities to foster a strong business, such as attracting and retaining board members who are skilled and specialised or improving community perception through transparent and creative communication channels. As technology advances, NFPs also have the opportunity to embrace new technologies and digital solutions to optimise their systems and processes and further expand their community engagement.
