Academies and schools
As a firm we were supporting schools long before the latest academy directives – indeed we are immensely proud that one of our clients has been with us for over 20 years. Consequently, we understand all of the particular difficulties you face – the ever increasing pressures on funding, the tight reporting deadlines and the heavy regulatory environment in which you operate.
With published figures becoming ever more accessible to the public we have also helped academies answer queries from their users. In places, this means we pro-actively encourage and advise you on additional explanatory disclosures on the face of the accounts to help eliminate future confusion from their readers (sizeable fixed asset surpluses can make this a particularly difficult area for some academies).
If you are involved in this sector we would be happy to speak to you about your accountancy and audit needs. In the first instance, please feel free to contact Robert Howe or Thomas Robinson.
