Did you know, Between 2013 and 2019, 935 Academies moved trust?

Many move due to intervention, some due to their sponsor being closed and most were initiated by the Trust. One thing is certain though...

The motives behind the transfer of Academies is to achieve economies of scale and to capitalise on the success of already successful trusts. But this comes with its own difficulties.

Trusts are continuing to grow due to the addition of new Academies and that comes with an ever increasing responsibility for administrative staff. There are more staff to perform payroll for, more invoices and receipts to account for. There are bigger, more complicated budgets to consider and accounts to put together. Add that to the very tight deadline that Academies have to get their accounts audited and you have yourself one difficult task! Sometimes, it pays to get some help.

We make you our top priority, so that your accounts are produced quickly and efficiently. Being a small firm, not only do you have a closer relationship with us, but the cost will also be considerably less than it would be at a larger accountancy firm.
