"HelpAge is known for its transparency. I think it's safe to say that the way our programs function, and the way we work as an organization has a lot of clarity and transparency. Nothing is hidden. It's all out there, in the public domain — for everyone to see," says Mathew Cherian, Chief Executive Officer, HelpAge India.

HelpAge India has always worked to accurately account for and report the financial position of the Society, to promote sound financial management, and to provide quality services to the donors. The centralised finance function is performed from the Headquarters at Delhi and serves the needs of all the offices across the country. It ensures that all transactions adhere to the Society's policies and procedures, generally accepted accounting principles, and rules established by the statutory bodies.

HelpAge India values a culture of accountability and integrity committed to doing the right thing. HelpAge India was among the pioneers in the sector to implement ERP based accounting software which enables strong internal controls and checks and balances to ensure that its financial reports are reliable, operations are effective and its activities compliant with applicable laws and regulations.

The efforts of HelpAge were further recognized when it recieved a award for transparency and excellence in financial reporting in the not for profit sector by "Institute of Chartered Accountants of India" for three consecutive years. HelpAge was also awarded the Best Presented Accounts and Corporate Governance Disclosure Award 2010, in the NGO category by the South Asian Federation of Accountants
