Accountant for end year accounts

Breathing Spaces

Register your Interest

Breathing Spaces is a Community Interest Company, based in Worthing, which engages people with gardens and plants to improve their wellbeing. ​

Nature and gardening have a special power to calm and kindly refresh body, mind and emotions. And the more help someone needs, the more nature gives. But sometimes people need a little support to access that power. That's why we started Breathing Spaces Garden Therapy and Design, and why we are building its future sustainability through our small urban flower farm. Since 2013, we have been getting all sorts of people gardening together, but especially people who are struggling, because gardening lowers stress, connects people and gives purpose.

We run our therapeutic sessions and the community flower farm, which helps generate income to fund our work, at the Maybridge Keystone Centre, Worthing and we manage a wildflower site in Sompting.

We are looking for an accountant who would like to support what we do and help us produce and file our annual accounts and tax returns for 2020 and beyond. We are a small social enterprise with an income this year of £25,000, part from trading and part grant-funded. There is no payroll and no VAT and we have used QuickBooks Online throughout the year. The End of Year accounts shouldn’t take too long. It would also be wonderful if you could be on hand throughout the year to answer an occasional finance query and get involved in other ways too, but if you only have the time to do the end of year accounts, we would still love to hear from you. 


We are looking for a qualified accountant who:

  • Knows how to produce and file end of year accounts and tax returns for a small Community Interest Company.
  • Is experienced at using QuickBooks online.
  • Is available to do this task sometime between January and April.


This is a chance for you to build a long-term involvement with a small Worthing-based community group without it requiring too much of your time, meet new people and get or increase your experience of being part of an enterprise with a social purpose.

When do I need to be available?
