Andrew from Charity Expert was very helpful from the beginning, giving us good and sound advice even before we decided to purchase his services.

We at Prodigal Bikes are so grateful to Andrew for his hard work and expertise, and would highly recommend that any new charity seeking registration gets in touch with him.

When starting our Charity, Prodigal Bikes, in Autumn 2016, we were offered of a large amount of support from a local Engineering company, but this was dependent on our Charity being registered. We tried unsuccessfully on our own to register, then, running out of time, we called Andrew at Charity Expert. He got our registration completed in the space of a few weeks, and enabled the support from the local Engineering company to continue, giving us a huge boost. We at Prodigal Bikes are so grateful to Andrew for his hard work and expertise, and would highly recommend that any new charity seeking registration gets in touch with him.

We would like to thank Andrew Butler of Charity Expert for his professionalism and friendly manner as well as the speedy registration of our Foundation with the Charities Commission. We appreciated this particularly as we ourselves had had several unsuccessful previous attempts at registration! The advice he gave us regarding our objectives and the various option packages he offers enabled us to select the optimum package we needed, including some post-registration support in order that we put all policies and procedures in place to avoid falling foul of the law and giving the recipients of the Foundation the best service with our limited resources.

Ceri Jones, Trustee – Clwb Pêl-droed Ieuenctid Talybont Junior Football Club – Registered Charity Number 1168467

I can recommend this organisation and Andrew Butler in particular as a friendly and effective service that is very well worth the cost.

As Project Manager of the Haven Project CIC, a small project supporting people with the diagnosis of Personality Disorder, I had long been wanting to convert the organisation to charity status in order to be able to access funding for the project.

I had attempted to initiate the conversion via the Charity Commission’s online service. But I found myself overwhelmed by the complexity of the site and the difficulties in navigating the on-line application. When the application “timed out“ on me I decided that this was work for experts and searched for a suitable company to undertake the task. I was very fortunate in finding the Charity Expert and Andrew Butler.

He was approachable and knowledgeable (as he had worked for the commission and so knew the ins and outs of their systems and methods).  He did all the work he could for us and where we had to become involved he made the tasks as clear and easy as possible to complete.

I cannot thank him enough for the time and frustration he has saved me and at a very reasonable cost. We have already saved over £3,000 in business rates on account of having completed the charity conversion. We have hundreds of additional grants to access and are looking forward to applying for to cover costs for future projects.

I can recommend this organisation and Andrew Butler in particular as a friendly and effective service that is very well worth the cost. In our case is has already paid or itself more than fourtimes over.

Pernille Peterson, Project Manager – The Haven Project – Registered Charity Number 1169747

Their knowledge and expertise is second to none and we have no problem in recommending Charity Expert.

We contacted Charity Expert at the end of March 2016, after a few emails and phone calls our application was made on 24th May 2016.  Charity Expert had done such a great job we were registered as a charity within 6 days. Their knowledge and expertise is second to none and we have no problem in recommending Charity Expert. Thank you so much.

Andrew provided us clear guidance and encouragement… His fee structure was incredibly fair and good value for money, we will keep Andrew on as our Charity Expert. I would highly recommend Andrew to organisations needing help.

Andrew of Charity Expert was not the first Charity Consultant we approached in our search for help with our Charity registration application but he was the first one we felt who deeply listened to our case and who assured us he would do his best to secure success.  His previous experience in working for the Charity Commission shone through when he guided us through the process and raised our awareness of the most important point to make and hurdles to overcome.

We knew our application was not straight forward yet we detected no reticence on his part to do anything other than give his best.  Indeed though he knew little of who we were or what we did at the start, by the time it came to submission Andrew was a supporter of our case in seeking to be one of the key providers of support for men facing challenges in leveraging mental health and wellbeing through our support groups, trainings, community and culture of mentorship.

When the Charity Commission sought further clarity Andrew provided us clear guidance and encouragement. He made himself available to talk with members of our team when questions arose. I have no doubt that Andrew’s previous Charity Commission experience, his calm and client centred approach made sure we submitted the best case possible which secured success.  His fee structure was incredibly fair and good value for money, we will keep Andrew on as our Charity Expert. I would highly recommend Andrew to organisations needing help.

Charlotta Martinus, Teen Yoga Foundation – Reg Charity No: 1165236

We strongly recommend anyone who wishes to set a charity properly and to have it registered, to use Charity Expert’s services and expertise for their efficiency, precision and kindness.

My husband and me are French and we had been living here for less than 2 years when we decided to set our charity “EMUNA CHARITY” last year and I have to say we certainly couldn’t have it set without the help of Charity Expert, who besides were very patient with me and my difficulties to understand English on the phone 🙂  They were available each time we needed them and provided good information, even helping us writing in proper English about the aims of the charity.  Andrew took care of the application to the Charity Commission and within a month or two Emuna Charity became a registered Charity… such a precious help for us and such a relief  not to have to get involved into these administrative procedures… we already have so much work with the charity !!! It was like having a friend on our side helping and understanding us in our project. Today the charity is running well and has lots of projects, some books have been written and a website is under construction to sell these books at an affordable price… we are very happy of the journey we made in one year, and this is only the beginning… and all this could start thanks to God, of course, and thanks to Charity Expert !
In conclusion we strongly recommend anyone who wishes to set a charity properly and to have it registered, to use Charity Expert’s services and expertise for their efficiency, precision and kindness.

Stephanie Guieu, Emuna Charity – Reg Charity No: 1163937

I cannot recommend Charity Expert highly enough.

We approached Charity expert after having difficulties completing the registration process for our charity Spotlight YOPD. After explaining the issues that we were coming up against to Andy, he immediately explained what he thought the problems were, and how he thought they could be overcome. Over the next few months we spent a lot of time talking together over the phone, discussing the best way to move forward and how to deal with the many obstacles that cropped up during the registration process. Andy was always happy to take the time to explain, in layman’s terms, what was being required of us, and how best to provide the information that the Charities Commission needed.
Andy is friendly, approachable, dedicated, and extremely experienced. Without his considerable help, I very much doubt that we would ever have succeeded in becoming a registered charity and therefore provide help to those living with Young Onset Parkinson’s disease. I cannot recommend Charity Expert highly enough, and I hope that we will continue to stay in touch.

Billy Flynn, SPOTLIGHT YOPD – Reg Charity No: 1165177

 I would definitely recommend using Charity Expert to anyone setting up a charity.

We found the service provided by Charity expert to be of good standard. We had already started the process with Charity Commission but were going nowhere with our application because at times it was hard to determine what they needed from us as it was vague. I approached Charity Expert and spoke to Andrew who listened to my plight, gave me initial feedback as to the likelihood of the Charity becoming registered based on the information I provided and then once the application process started, kept us upto date which was important. I would definitely recommend using Charity Expert to anyone setting up a charity.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services most highly to any organisation wishing to apply for Charitable status.

As an existing Community Amateur Sports Club wishing to change our status to that of a Registered Charity, ours was not a straightforward case. Having reached a major obstacle in the somewhat daunting on-line application process, a decision was made by the Committee to seek professional advice and assistance. Our enquiries and subsequent recommendations led us to Andrew Butler of The Charity
Expert, which proved particularly fortuitous. His friendly, helpful approach and simple form work enabled our application to be processed and submitted very quickly, and with no additional information requested, our Club was delighted to receive approval from the Charity Commission within six weeks. Clearly, Andrew’s many years of working previously for the Commission has provided him with invaluable knowledge and the specialist expertise necessary to tailor and guide each application over the various hurdles. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services most highly to any organisation wishing to apply for Charitable status.

Andrew has been patient and supportive throughout, and we have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else in the same situation.

We applied for charity registration in September 2014, and although we passed the threshold hurdle, a number of issues still needed to be addressed. We probably could have dealt with some of them, but we do not have any expertise on this application process, and it would no doubt have been a bit hit and miss! We contacted Andrew Butler at Charity Expert, and he took the time to listen to what we had done, and what was still outstanding. He recommended building on what we had done (and priced it accordingly!). He produced a response to the Charity Commission which addressed all their issues. He followed up with the Commission, and in the 2nd week of January, we received the positive result of being registered. This whole process has, from our point of view, has been completely painless and hassle free. Andrew has been patient and supportive throughout, and we have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else in the same situation.

Bob Tait – Trustee of Animal Canopy –  Reg No. 1159870

After one telephone call to Andrew to discuss my application two things became very apparent.  Firstly, it was evident that there were considerations and obstacles for my application that I had not been aware of, which could make or break its success.  Andrew quickly communicated these obstacles and explained where more thought was needed to meet the criteria needed.

Secondly, I was immediately aware that Andrew was very knowledgeable and approachable on this subject and once appointed would be a valuable resource and my first point of contact throughout the application process.

Making the decision to use the services of Andrew and Charity Expert was a complete success for me, our application was granted with very little hassle and well inside the time frame that Andrew had given.   I would thoroughly recommend Andrew and his services to anybody who is considering using him in the future.

Without a charity expert, registering a charity can be a very expensive and complicated business.

Without a charity expert, registering a charity can be a very expensive and complicated business. Although our solicitors were very helpful, the process would have taken much longer and been much more expensive with them.  Therefore, we changed over to Andrew Butler who is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of charity registration, both before and after.  Any questions we had were answered promptly and  were made easy to understand.  Andrew is very easy to talk to both on the phone and online.

His fees are very reasonable and we feel he is worth every penny.  We will be keeping in touch with Charity Expert for future advice, which we know we will need.

We had tried to do everything ourself and we were not getting very far and getting very confused about what needs to be done. It was becoming a real distraction as we didn’t know what to do and was taking up a lot of time. After speaking with a few organisations who help set up charities, i instantly knew i would go with Andrew as his phone manner and knowledge won me over straight away. He makes things as simple as possible for you and flew our application through. I have no reservations about recommending Andrew and hope to work with you again in the future.

I highly recommend anyone who needs to start a charity should definitely use Charity Expert

The service of turning my organisation into a Charity was extremely professional and efficient. I highly recommend anyone who needs to start a charity should definitely use CHARITY EXPERT to get your Charity started.

We can’t thank Charity Expert enough for making this dream a reality!

The enormity of setting up a charity off our own back was completely overwhelming, but with the help of Andy Butler at Charity Expert I can safely say that nothing has been easier. Andy was fantastic – always there at the end of the phone to answer any questions, providing us with all the right information, and even taking the time out to arrange a face to face meeting to put our minds at ease. Andy kept us up to date with the registration process every step of the way, and made sure that we were always involved and knew exactly what was happening. We can’t thank Charity Expert enough for making this dream a reality!

All I can say is if you need help, he is without a doubt you man

I had been trying to register my charity for over a year and kept hitting brick walls…. I searched the website for hours on end, had tons of conversations and meetings and would ask and write to everyone and anyone who might be able to shed some light on what was beginning to seem like an impossible task. Then I finally got directed to Andrew… He was BRILLIANT in every way… He was happy to provide tons of information over the telephone and email and applied no pressure to go with him and in fact tried to persuade me to go for a lower package… All I can say is if you need help, he is without a doubt you man!!!! OUTSTANDING… Thank you Andrew.

Kathryn Camsey – Alice Adams Foundation (Registered Charity Number 1157476)

I have no hesitation in recommending Charity Expert

I was very impressed with the service provided by Andrew Butler. My decision to use Charity Expert was in some part influenced by some of the testimonials, which I read on the Charity Expert web site.

I had a very in-depth conversation at the outset with Andrew and this really helped me set my expectations. Andrew was very generous with his time and advice.

At every stage of the charity registration process I had a very good level of confidence in the guidance provided by Andrew and I have no hesitation in recommending Charity Expert. Andrew Butler was prompt and reliable in terms of responding to my queries and I would definitely use Charity Expert again in the future.

Naeem Azam – Sidq Foundation (Registered Charity Number 1156861)

I can’t recommend them highly enough

Charity Expert have been superb. Andrew was brilliant at helping me understand the intricacies involved in becoming a charity and was always quick to respond to my questions in a friendly and informative way. Charity Expert has taken through the entire process in a stress free, timely way and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Clown Without Borders UK (Registered Charity Number 1156987)

I will definitely recommend your service to anyone

I found your service to be exactly as advertised on your website, we have not paid any more than what is advertised for the package we chose, I will definitely recommend your service to anyone, very hassle free & genuine, I particularly draw attention to your in-depth knowledge of charity law, as we had what could have turned out to be a “bit of a pickle” , but thanks to your very broad understanding and technical savvy, this pickle turned out to instead “Bear Sweet Fruit” with a charity number.

Shaz Khan –  Forum of Algerians in Britain (Registered Charity Number 1156327)

I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone else out there looking to launch their own charity

Having used Andrew Butler at Charity Expert for the legal registration process, I was impressed by the professionalism and urgency with which the case was handled. The Butterfly Project had a strict schedule to adhere to, and I had to press Andrew at times to get things moving ahead of schedule; however, Andrew was more than happy to chase things up with the UK charity commission and help expedite the setup process. Something we would have struggled with if Andrew and Charity Expert were not involved in the process.

From the drafting of the trust deed, to the specific details along the way, Andrew was meticulous in the handling of each stage of the setup.

I will be keeping in touch with Andrew, and would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone else out there looking to launch their own charity…big or small; Charity Expert will be able to assist.

Rajeev Kumar – The Butterfly Project (Registered Charity Number 1155962)

I wouldn’t hesitate to use them in the future or recommend them to other people

In my dealings with Charity Expert, we found them to be helpful, knowledgeable, friendly & professional, we just explained what we wanted to do with our proposed charity and they took care of the rest, I was unaware of Charity Expert beforehand, but having done our due diligence and spoke to some of their previous clients, I had peace of mind to use them and wouldn’t hesitate to use them in the future or recommend them to other people, certainly took the headache out of getting us registered – Thank you Andrew!!

Mark Camden-Clarke – JMHA North West (Registered Charity Number 1155283)

I would recommend Charity Expert to anyone considering setting up a Charity

Charity Expert provided me with an excellent service. Andy ensured a fast smooth application and kept informed at every stage making what initially was a daunting task for me very simple. I would recommend Charity Expert to anyone considering setting up a Charity. Thank you Andy.

Shaun Foggett – The Crocodiles of the World Foundation (Registered Charity Number 1153303)

They were a support throughout and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

When I initially came to Andrew for help with the application process for my charity – I was half way through and I decided I wanted to change its name, so it was not particularly straightforward. Charity Expert made it very simple of me, and broke down the process in to manageable steps, which made it much less daunting. Andrew was always patient when I called him, with what I am sure must have been very tedious questions! They were a support throughout and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Kila Wynter – One Less Gun (Registered Charity Number 1154662)

We can highly recommend this company

We wanted to set up a registered charity earlier this year. We looked into doing this ourselves but after looking into it we decided it was beyond our expertise.

We decided to use an expert and came across Charity Expert through Google. They took over the process for us and relieved us of all the technicalities. Andrew was alway very helpful and eventual we were registered with the charities commission. We can highly recommend this company.

Julian Cary – Caring Bears (Registered Charity Number 1153803)

The service was excellent!

Prompt and efficient. The welcome was friendly and encouraging. Thank you so much for taking care of us in such an admirable and professional manner. Excellent advice given and a genuinely caring approach.

Thank you very much for everything!

If you’re looking to set-up a charity we can wholeheartedly recommend Charity Expert.

Working with Andrew from Charity Expert in setting up our charity was a breeze.

If you’re looking to set up a charity we can wholeheartedly recommend Charity Expert.
