Accounting Help for Palmerston North Charities and Societies

Community Accounting is a free service for community groups in Palmerston North to help them confidently manage their finances, from day to day accounts through to end of year reports.

Do you want a team of passionate, hard-working and smart accounting students to help you with your books?   We can assign a team of students to work with your group for eight weeks improving your systems, getting your books in order for funding applications and helping you understand your accounts.   Students are supervised by Chartered Accountants and have access to specialist community advisers.  We have two intakes per year.   Spaces are limited.

We also provide regular Treasurer training and resources to support you. If you don’t know if we can help then just ask!
