Do you need an advisor that understands NPO?

Looking for a team as committed as your volunteers?

Are you unsure where to turn for help?

We Specialize, We Don't Dabble!

We understand that not-for-profit and charitable organizations are different from businesses, which is why we have a full team dedicated to the sector. Our team can help you with auditing, performance management and training with dependable and straight forward advice. Our experts are here to help you navigate the increased scrutiny from the CRA around reporting and charitable status.

At Rlb Community Counts

We are a committed team that is actively involved in the communities where we work. Our staff volunteer with dozens of agencies in our area in a variety of roles. This community involvement gives us a ‘real world’ understanding of governance, strategy, risk management, funding models and operations, allowing us to understand the sector from all sides.

We are only a call away

Even when we’re not working directly on your projects, we love to stay in touch. We have a monthly newsletter that includes original articles focused on the not-for-profit and charitable sector. We also hold not-for-profit seminars at least once a year that include relevant, custom content on issues facing organizations in the region.

We want to be your consultant of choice. Some of the specialized work we have performed in the agricultural sector includes:

  • Analysis of working capital/equity requirements.
  • Design of financial reporting and costing systems.
  • Implementation of salary surveys
  • Assistance with issues associated with management changes.
  • Research and development and grant application funding
  • Consulting related to maintaining non-taxable status.
  • Assistance with transition issues from the amalgamation of organizations.
  • Consulting on HST issues in the non-taxable environment

More Information:

With the some charitable organizations having their charitable status revoked, or exceeding reasonable limits for fundraising and administrative costs, it is imperative that your organization meets all Canada Revenue Agency reporting deadlines and requirements and maintains an efficiently-run operation. You want to ensure that as much of every dollar raised goes towards your charitable purpose.

We want to help.

Charities consist of a wide variety of organizations, including those in the areas of health, social housing, recreation, education, and religious activity. Although their operations vary, they all need to comply with Canada Revenue Agency requirements. In addition they should operate in a way that shows they are accountable to their donors and members, and transparent in the eyes of the public.

The requirements of a charity can be quite complex and we can provide expert advice to assist you with:

  • Governance
  • Financial management and controls
  • Taxation
  • Financial statements
  • Audits

RLB LLP is committed to the charitable sector, recognizing the valuable role played by both dedicated professionals and volunteers in serving the community.
