Trade unions

We are the leading provider of accountancy services to the trade union sector, acting for five of the top ten, and ten of the top thirty trade unions, supporting more than three million members.

We are proud of our work in the trade union sector and the close relationships we have established with a diverse array of unions, ranging from mainstream organisations to niche associations representing highly specialised professionals. Our Trade Union team understands the financial pressures that trade unions are facing and do our utmost to provide our clients with ideas which either save the union time, money, or help to manage the risks they face on a daily basis.

Our extensive knowledge and experience of acting for trade unions provides us with unrivalled expertise and flexibility to advise you on a broad range of issues, especially those that are currently impacting the sector, such as pressure income, dwindling membership numbers, governance and potential merger activity.


“We appointed Chantrey Vellacott, now Moore Stephens, as our auditors in 2010 and they managed the transition from our previous auditors in a seamless manner. Their organised approach and understanding of ATL has been really helpful. Their audit team was familiar with the needs of our organisation, which has made our audit an efficient and effective process. They have met our tight reporting deadlines and we appreciate their positive approach, along with their willingness to help us implement their recommendations.”
