"I have been using Jordan Publishing Charities Administration Service for over a decade, as a clerk to trustee boards and as a specialist charity adviser. In all those contexts, I have found it to be an indispensable source of knowledge for the successful running of a charity.

It is so easy to use, and offers essential legal, financial and administrative advice in a practical way that someone who is not an expert in the full range of subject matter can understand and implement easily and effectively.

The quarterly updates ensure that I always know of any new developments, and so never need worry that there are unknown new obligations or regulatory requirements we should be addressing.

Overall, Jordan Publishing Charities Administration Service has been a sound investment which has paid for itself time and time again, and I would recommend it to anybody involved in advising or operating charities.
