NCT appoints new auditors
The National Childbirth Trust has replaced its long-time auditors Buzzacotts with Kingston Smith, after a review by its finance and audit committee
The tender process, including Buzzacotts, Kingston Smith and three other
firms, was launched following a period of expansion by the trust and as part of
a governance review there were no problems with its previous auditor of ten
years, it said.
‘We see the relationship between
the NCT and the auditors as
a partnership and, in particular, the trustees wanted to forge a closer
relationship,’ said director of finance Anne Spong. ‘Overall, it was felt that
Kingston Smith matched our requirements most closely and demonstrated a keen
understanding of our expectations.’
The charity, which is one of the largest for pregnancy, birth and parenting
in the UK, has seen rapid growth over the last few years both in terms of
membership numbers and income.
