    I have been asked by a subscriber of a charitable company to perform a
    review of their accounts to look for any errors or omissions. I have
    prepared a report on the basis of publicly available information and made
    clear that this does not constitute an audit, and I am not expressing an
    opinion on the accounts.

    The subscriber wishes to send my report to the Charity Commission, and a
    leading politician, and it is entirely probable that some of it may find its
    way into the media.

    I was wondering if there were any 'etiquette' issues with regard to the
    auditors of the charity.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Just be careful about how much you do for free. I know
    a semi retired CA who once he did one set of charity
    accounts has been pestered to do more and more, all for
    free of course.
