Our Services

The Ayrshire Community Trust provides a range of services to help and support community groups, organisations and individuals.

Independent Examinations

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 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:
Charities
£0.00 to £15,000 would cost £60.00
£15,000 to £50,000 would cost £90.00
£50,000 to £100,000 would cost £120.00
£100,000 to £250,000 would cost £230.00
Non charities
£0.00 to £15,000 would cost £70.00
£15,000 to £50,000 would cost £115.00
£50,000 to £100,000 would cost £220.00
£100,000 to £250,000 would cost £380.00
These costs are changeable and would be discussed with the group before completing the examination.
