Our clients ask us to help in one of two ways, through outsourcing and consultancy.
Outsourced financial management is our core business. We can cover any or every part of your finance function from budgeting, through payroll, bookkeeping and VAT returns to management reporting and year end accounts. We can do it for you, or we can do it with you training and mentoring your staff in the process. Our support is;
We are a Xero certified partner and use Xero’s market-leading cloud-based accounting platform to manage our clients’ accounts and give 24/7 worldwide access to live financial data.
We are motivated by your mission and success. At the start of any outsourced contract we invest our time in getting to know you and your business in order to build a stable long-lasting relationship. We are proud that all 3 of the outsourced clients we took on in 2010 (our first year offering outsourced support) are still with us today.
We work exclusively with charities and mission-led businesses. We have wide experience of the challenges faced by restricted funding and donor reporting requirements and of setting up robust systems to deal with them.
As a CIMA specialist practice, management accounts are a particular speciality. Our
trademark reporting packs always include a key trends dashboard giving you a 1-page executive summary of your finances backed up by more detailed drill down reports.
We will agree a contact that details how we will work together, and we prefer to work on a flat fee basis to give you budget certainty.
Alongside outsourcing one-off consultancy projects have always been at the heart of our business. Our depth and breadth of experience means we can help clients who need extra support for a short period of time in a number of ways.
Recent one-off assignments have included;
Financial health checks
Review of current reporting systems
Interim management of the finance team for an international NGO
Maximising the use of their endowment portfolio with a major national charity
Whatever the project, if you are looking for an expert set of eyes to look at things differently or a little extra resource for a difficult period please drop us a line or call us to find out how we can help you.
