Some of the services we provide to not for profits, charities and associations include:

Financial systems assessment – a comprehensive review of your accounting processes with clear, prioritised recommendations for compliance and efficiency.

Reporting – we can help you to develop a suite of reports in layouts that suit your organisation’s information needs using Xero and Spotlight Reporting.

Xero optimisation – we ensure your cost centre framework and chart of accounts are structured to provide the information you need, and we’ll help you to optimise your use of Xero’s tools to maximise efficiency.

National Standard Chart of Accounts – agreed to by all Australian governments, the NSCOA has been implemented by a number of State Governments to reduce red tape and is now owned by the ACNC. AFG can help you to map your current structure to the NSCOA and migrate your accounting data for ease of reporting.
