“Hall Morrice has been our auditor for two years now. We first engaged with the firm as we were struck by the company’s genuine commitment and interest in the charity sector, as well as its professional competency and in-depth knowledge.
“The Hall Morrice team is always very supportive and accessible and we believe the firm provides great value for money.
“We have very much enjoyed working with Hall Morrice and work is always completed to an exceptionally high standard. Shonagh and Lorna in particular have shown a real commitment to us – the advice we have received from them has always been very useful and has helped us deliver our objectives.”

We appointed Hall Morrice as auditor for Aberdeen FC Community Trust’s first audit on the basis of the firm’s excellent reputation for work with charities and groups operating in the Third Sector.
As this was my first experience of an audit of accounts for a charitable organisation, it was fair to say that the team and I were perhaps a bit daunted by what lay ahead. However, we were immediately comforted by the positive and upbeat outlook projected by Shonagh Fraser and her staff, and their level of knowledge and expertise.
From the outset it was clear that Hall Morrice would not treat this as a box-ticking exercise: they were genuinely committed to providing challenging, considered and insightful feedback that will help strengthen us as an organisation and stand us in the best possible stead for our next set of audited accounts.
Hall Morrice was extremely responsive to any questions that I had, and very supportive of us as an organisation. They turned what could have been a difficult and tense experience into one that was very pleasant and positive.

Hall Morrice provided invaluable support to students of North East Scotland College. Derek Mair and Richard Stephenson played a significant part in helping students develop their business ideas in collaboration with Elevator. Richard spoke to the group of budding entrepreneurs about the importance of pricing to ensure you can run a sustainable business. Derek Mair participated in a ‘Dragons Den’ panel amongst other local businesses and awarded the winning enterprising team with £100. Thank you Hall Morrice for your continued support to shape and educate the north easts young people.


“We began to work with Hall Morrice earlier this year on our year end accounts, in what has been an extremely challenging time for charities and trusts like The Gordon Highlanders’ Museum and Regimental Trust.
“The team at Hall Morrice have gone beyond the ‘figures’ and have helped us to communicate our financial results to our Board of Trustees and to the wider public to recognise these challenges and the way forward. They have guided us towards how we can express our financial results, investments and future plans, to better explain our position and have helped us to explain the impact of the 2020/21 landscape succinctly to our Trustees. Everyone we have dealt with at Hall Morrice have been very tuned in and responsive to our need to have good financial information and guidance.”

“An audit can be particularly stressful for a charity team as information flows from so many sources. Hall Morrice took much of the stress out of this for us. Key for us was their knowledge and understanding of the third sector. Their whole team was so easy to work with and gave us additional support for a complex tender process we were involved in which required financial information. The Hall Morrice team are all highly professional and were available at the end of the phone for all of our queries.”
