Melanson Heath has been performing audit, accounting, and tax services for nonprofit organizations for over 40 years. Our Nonprofit Services Department has a team of professionals that specializes in the unique aspects of nonprofit organizations. Our experience includes working with very large, multi-tiered organizations with multiple locations, as well as small volunteer-managed entities. We service over 100 nonprofit organizations from New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine.

Nonprofit organizations require a skill set uniquely filled by our firm’s broad range of expertise. Responsive and efficient project management, technical expertise and business insight are just a few of the elements that you will enjoy when working with the Nonprofit Services Department team. We are proactive when new accounting and auditing standards are released as we implement and assist our clients, often in advance of the required implementation date. Our team members perform speaking engagements to professional organizations and trainings to our clients on these topics. As part of our commitment to the community, many of our professionals serve on local nonprofit boards and committees, giving our clients the added dimension and benefit from “both sides” of the table.

In addition to our involvement in state societies of CPAs, our involvement in the following professional organizations allows us to keep on the “cutting edge” of accounting, auditing, and tax issues:

  • AICPA – American Institute of CPAs
  • AICPA PCPS – Private Companies Practice Section
  • AICPA GAQC – Governmental Audit Quality Center
  • AICPA Not-for-Profit Section
  • ACFE – Association of Certified Fraud Examiners
  • PCAOB – Public Company Accounting Oversight Board

The following are some of the services that we provide to our nonprofit clients:

  • Financial statement audits, compilations, and reviews
  • Single audits in accordance with Uniform Guidance (formerly A-133 audits)
  • Tax services including Form 990, Form 990T, state returns, and annual report filings
