ESV Accounting and Business Advisors recognised for Pro Bono Work
- Wednesday, December 13, 2017
ESV has received special recognition for its pro bono work in the AFR and Chartered Accountants ANZ top 100 survey. The number of pro bono hours carried out across the firm equates to a day for each staff member.
ESV has set up a number of charitable foundations and trusts on a pro bono basis. The firm also provides audit and assurance services to charities and NFPs which often lead to taxation and advisory work. ESV understands that charities and not-for-profit organisations face unique challenges – rapidly changing legislation, an increasing focus on transparency and managing stakeholders’ interests are all challenges they must overcome. ESV Accounting and Business Advisors partner Chris Kirkwood commented:
"The areas are chosen predominantly because of a client relationship or involvement. Our clients will come to us and ask us to get behind a cause they are supporting and because of our reputation and ongoing involvement in this space, we are often also asked to tender for services. We see it as our way of giving back and supporting the causes that we, and our clients, believe in, it's also a great way to develop the skills of our staff and provide them with work that they find interesting and rewarding."
