Accountancy Services

Community Accountancy Self Help (CASH) is a charity that offers competitively priced services to small charities and community groups based in London: 020 8969 0747

Most of our Accountancy Services are free or discounted for groups in Kensington & Chelsea and Hammersmith & Fulham. We have dedicated funding for these Boroughs.


CASH advises small charities and community groups to use a payroll service rather than undertake payroll themselves.

CASH offers payroll services at £5/payslip. Here is our CASH Payroll service price list.


We can undertake your bookkeeping and have experience of groups with turnovers up to £500k.  We can also produce the management accounts for your trustees and attend trustee meetings to explain them.

Prices range from £28 per hour for bookkeeping to £60 per hour for management accounts.

Unit costs and pricing

We produce full cost recovery models for charities and social enterprises.  This will tell you the unit costs of different services you provide.  Various pricing models exist which we can discuss with you.   Knowing your unit costs makes bid writing easier and more accurate.  The more you know about your costs the less risk is associated with winning a bid.

Price £420 per day.  Typically one to two days work is needed.

Account packages

We can install Quick books and Sage and tailor them to produce management accounts and data for funder returns based on full cost recovery.

Depending on the complexity this can take a day to five days. £65 per hour. We can train your staff to run the systems and offer telephone support.

Financial health check

We can undertake a financial health check on your organisation, either looking across the range of your procedures or focusing on the payroll.
