Non Profit Section

Lancaster & Reed is a leading firm in non profit sector services. We have an experience level that many smaller firms simply don't have and a high level of personal service that larger firms can't touch. We have service experience with broad range of non profit clients including:
•Institutionally Related Foundations
US Based and Offshore Captive Insurance Companies
•Trade associations and all types of membership organizations
•Professional societies
•Voluntary health and welfare organizations
•Arts and cultural organizations

Employee Benefit Plans

At many CPA firms, non profit engagements are discounted and treated as "filler" work used to keep staff busy during slow periods of the year. At Lancaster & Reed we do not take that approach. Although we make every possible effort toward efficiency in order to minimize client fee cost, we invest in our practice by hiring high caliber professionals and by making sure they have the necessary expertise and training. By staffing our engagements with seasoned professionals, we can make significant observations and recommendations relative to assisting our clients in achieving their organization's objectives.

Non Profit Tax Services
Lancaster & Reed offers a full complement of tax compliance and planning services. Due to our concentration in the nonprofit area, we are experienced with exempt organization taxation.
