When it’s not for profit
PEM has built a strong reputation for its expertise and knowledge of the charity and not for profit sector. We act as accountants, auditors and advisers to local, regional and national charities.
In 2015 PEM was ranked the top accountancy firm in the East Anglia region according to the 2015 Charity Audit Spotlight bi-annual report. The survey covers the top 5000 charities in the country and PEM was the number one firm both in terms of number of charity clients and fee income.
Our clients are in good company - we’re accountants for two thirds of Cambridge University Colleges, science research institutions, academies and independent schools.
At PEM we recognise the importance of the community in which we work, our impact on the environment and we acknowledge we have a responsibility to contribute to it in a positive way. We believe that through our work we can make a difference and are committed to doing so.
