We’re the person at the other end of the phone.

Despite the academies sector being around for over a decade, the role of the CFO (or equivalent) can sometimes feel like there is so much regulation and so much to keep on top of, and for some, it can feel like quite a lonely place!

That’s where we come in.

We’re the person at the other end of the phone, someone you can ask

“Am I doing this right?” or “Can you help me understand what I need to do for the 2022 ESFA* requirement?”

What we believe makes us different is that we place significant importance on developing and cultivating close working relationships with all our clients by offering a personal and bespoke service. We believe you need someone who you can pick up the phone to, someone you can trust, and someone who you enjoy working with.

Having worked with in the academies sector since 2012, we have supported academy finance teams navigate their way through many challenges, whilst also helping them to keep on top of their annual reporting requirements as follows:

  • Statutory Audit
  • Regularity Assurance (Accountant’s Assurance Report on Regularity)
  • Preparation of statutory financial statements
  • Preparation and Audit of the Academies Accounts Return (AAR)
  • Teacher’s Pensions End of Year Certificate (EOYc) Audit
  • Corporation tax compliance
  • Companies House administration
  • Budget Forecast Returns (BFR)
  • Internal Scrutiny/Internal Audit*
  • VAT and Tax Advisory
