Thanks for all your help - you are truly great friends! The actual book-keeping will be done by ourselves (me in fact) - it would just be to audit and agree the Balance
sheet/profit & loss account. In my last job, I was Financial Controller, so there would not be a lot to do. I have already set up the accounts and will be monitoring them on a day to day basis - no month end stuff and everything will be filed and in order - all invoices, receipts, funding received, etc. The group deals with mainly sporting activities for kids but we have been involved in planning issues and many other things going on in the community. Two of our committee are going on that Walks training session, the walks of which will be beneficial to people of all ages
We have no idea of the turnover yet, although we have a definite £10k coming in funding. Headcount at present is just the main committee - three of us. We are all voluntary, so no wages. All costings will be on an invoice basis.
Someone's time would probably take the very most half a day every quarter. Probably only an hour. Preferably looking for a recognised firm.
I take on board your advices to contact Price Waterhouse - I will try them and see what they are saying.
Sarah, your advice is brilliant - thanks. Hope to see you again soon. We will be getting our first newsletter out soon, anyone interested in having it emailed?
