How PwC can help Canada’s not-for-profit sector

PwC’s mission is simple: to address the needs of your organization. We can help meet the special needs of not-for-profit entities and organizations of your size in the following ways:

  • Evaluating your organization: While you focus on running your organization, we provide advice and support on accounting and financial reporting matters needed to reduce risk, build confidence and help you make informed operational decisions.
  • Tax planning: We provide guidance on structuring and restructuring the business activities of not-for-profit organizations, as well as assisting your organization on managing the tax-exempt or taxable status. We also assist with income tax and excise tax matters; structuring, establishing and registering new or renewed not-for-profit entities; and and GST/HST and provincial sales tax matters.
  • Tax compliance and reporting: We help you meet demanding timelines by preparing tax returns, by assisting with past tax filings and by making submissions under the voluntary disclosure program. We assist with review and recovery of federal and provincial sales taxes.
  • Prioritizing, aligning and sustaining activities that build value: We work with you to understand the factors that drive your organization and how to utilize its effectiveness. This can include assisting with an IT strategy review to benchmark costs against industry standards, to developing donor and granting strategies, and to manage and access government and private funding.
