Mothers Network (Wellington) NZ

Estimated Time: 6 - 8 Hours Over 0 - 3 Weeks

Mothers’ Network Wellington Inc. (“Mothers’ Network”) is looking for a Chartered Accountant to review our annual financial statements. We are a small registered charity with total operating expenditure of $32,798 for the year ended 31 March 2016. While there is no legal or constitutional requirement for our financial statements to be audited or reviewed, our Governance Group has elected to have our financial statements reviewed in order to help secure future grant funding and fulfil accountability obligations from some grant providers. The first financial statements to be reviewed would be for the year ended 31 March 2017 and the review would need to be completed in time for our submission due date 31 October 2017. Having your help will mean that we can be confident in our reporting, and more likely to secure that all important funding we need to continue our work in the community! Previous experience with registered charities is highly desirable, but not essential.
