The Ayrshire Community Trust provides a range of services to help and support community groups, organisations and individuals.
TACT offer an Independent Examination of accounts to Charities who have an income level of less than £250,000 on a Receipts and Payments basis, by staff who have been trained by the Association of Charity Independent Examiners, (A.C.I.E), to assist Charities to comply with the reporting requirements for the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
If you would like to discuss with an independent examiner (IE) your requirements then please use the ‘contact us’ page. An IE will get in touch with you to make arrangements to assist to complete your end of year return.
If you are not a registered charity we can still assist you as we are happy to offer the same service that we do to charities.
Our current payment scales are:
£0.00 to £15,000 would cost £50.00
£15,000 to £50,000 would cost £75.00
£50,000 to £100,000 would cost £100.00
£100,000 to £250,000 would cost £200.00
£0.00 to £15,000 would cost £60.00
£15,000 to £50,000 would cost £100.00
£50,000 to £100,000 would cost £200.00
£100,000 to £250,000 would cost £350.00
These costs are changeable and would be discussed with the group before completing the examination.

VHS to Digital Conversion
Do you have some classic family memories captured on VHS? Don’t let them degrade and become unplayable!
We can copy your old VHS video tapes and convert them to a digital format in order to preserve your precious memories.
Standard Play (SP) Tape (up to 2hrs long) – £15.00 each
Long Play (LP) Tape (up to 4hrs long) – £28.00 each
Digital Video – This is the easiest way to watch and share your videos. By supplying us with a USB pen drive or external hard disk drive (32Gb minimum recommended), we copy the files (in .MP4 format) so they can be viewed on a computer or uploaded onto the internet to share with family and friends.
DVD – We can also supply a copy of each tape on a DVD disc. Additional copies are available at a cost of £4 each.
• Home movies only – no commercial titles.
• We can accept standard VHS tapes and MiniDV tapes only.
• DVD quality is dependant on original quality of the VHS source tape*.
• Straight copies only – no editing or retouching is included.
• Please allow 7 working days for turnaround.
*Older VHS tapes that have been kept in storage (especially those recorded in LP or EP mode) are more likely to suffer from degradation such as colour loss, audio loss, frame skipping, and tracking issues. We can digitally copy what is playable in order to preserve your footage as much as possible but, unfortunately, some tapes may be unplayable.
