Finance: Independent examinations

Want to give your treasurer an early Christmas present why not book

them in for an I.E with faithstar and take the stress out of the end of year

accounts for them.


I trust your church has had a smooth year and the prospect of finalising

your accounts aren’t too daunting?

Having your accounts independently examined is a legal requirement,

but it can be far more beneficial to you than merely complying with the

regulations. Our enhanced Independent Examination service for both

Receipts and Payments and Accruals accounts will help you present

your accounts in the best possible way. As well as alerting you to any

problems with them. If you need it, we can produce your full Annual

Report as well.

Faithstar provides a high quality professional independent examination
