Committed to Ending Abuse (CEA) have been delighted with the service from Wylie & Bisset. As a board we have struggled with the formats and explanations on our finance for years and had to spend a lot of time trying to understand complex papers written for accountants! Our new partners have listened to our issues and we now have a clear set of papers that board members new and old can quickly understand so that robust financial decisions can be taken more quickly without fear of unintended consequences.

I should like to thank Wylie & Bisset for the extremely interesting and very useful charity trustee workshop. I have attended several workshops on this subject matter with other organisations but this one definitely hit the spot for me, very thorough and covering just the right amount of detail. I spend a lot of time recruiting trustees for our charities so your workshop was essential in my being able to better address some of the more technical questions respective trustees from our pro bono supporters pool may have.

Strathcarron Hospice has enjoyed a long standing proactive working relationship with Wylie & Bisset. In addition to their audit team always ensuring the consolidated charity and subsidiary retail accounts are prepared accurately and timeously, the ability to access any of their staff for immediate accountancy and tax advice has been of great benefit.

My predecessor recommended the professional and reliable services of Wylie and Bisset when I took up post in 2005. I have not been disappointed – their personnel are efficient, approachable and friendly during all aspects of the audit and advisory process. Nothing is too much trouble and advice is only a phone call or an e-mail away. All aspects of the Charity’s business audit and the service users’ finance audit is overseen by a partner, Jenny Simpson, who has knowledge of our specialist services and funding streams, pays attention to detail, is compliant with OSCR requirements, visits personally to finalise the process and attends the Charity’s AGM to present the final audited accounts to the Board of Trustees and answer their queries, before getting their signatures. My experience identifies Wylie and Bisset as providers of an excellent personal service, value for money and complete accuracy. I do not hesitate to recommend Wylie and Bisset to colleagues and friends.

“When I went out to tender to change auditors, I short-listed professional firms with in-depth charity accounting experience and an able team to service the audit of the Trust. I found both at Wylie & Bisset. “Changing auditors can be a daunting undertaking and sometimes can cause major disruption in a business’s operation. However, our change of auditors to Wylie & Bisset could not have been easier and was implemented without any issues. “Now into the second year of audit with Wylie & Bisset, their selection has proved to be a very wise choice. Their knowledge and experience of charity accounting and the education sector is first class and working with the team, from partner to audit junior, over the past two years has been so interesting, informative and instructive. “Wylie & Bisset have ensured that our accounts are accurate, compliant with current legislation and well presented and delivered on schedule to the Trustees of the Charity.”

“The SPFL Trust appointed Wylie & Bisset LLP as auditors in 2017 following a competitive bid process. Since then their attention and guidance has assisted us greatly in developing our financial systems. In addition, I recently attended their half-day Charity Trustee Training Workshop, led by Jenny Simpson, which I found to be a very digestible presentation of a sometimes daunting and complex subject”.

Coming from a non-finance background, I found this seminar immensely useful. The balance sheet has always been a bit of a grey area for me, the terminology obscure and reading the accounts far from straightforward. Suddenly it all makes much more sense. Thanks for such a clear and comprehensive – and sympathetic – explanation.
