Services

Service charge consultancy

We can provide consultancy services regarding your computer systems, forensic accounting, investigations, and more.

We have the specialist skills and experience to assist with special projects and assignments. Examples of our service charge consultancy and assisting our clients in this way include the following:

Systems review and service charge audit

Our long experience of working with service charge accounts means that we have a fundamental understanding of best practice. We can carry out a system review and service charge audit to ensure that you are getting the best out of your work practices and processes, thereby maximising efficiency and reducing areas of weakness.

For larger clients, where there are sufficient economies of scale, it often makes sense for us to use this experience to perform a system audit for the company to deliver cost savings to the service charge accounts. In addition the landlord or agent can benefit as the audit work identifies potential areas of weakness, which can then be used to tighten up working practices, improve day-to-day efficiency and highlight areas where additional staff training would be beneficial. This process has the effect of improving overall efficiency and smoothing future auditing procedures thereby helping to manage long-term costs.

Forensic Accounting

If you are involved in a legal case, to resolve disputes between tenants and landlords, or as part of a due diligence process when managing agents change then we can help.

Our forensic accountants are frequently called upon to perform investigative accounting for our clients.  This is usually as part of a legal case, to resolve disputes between tenants and landlords, or as part of a due diligence process when managing agents change. We’ve presented findings in several  cases, involving all sorts of legal actions including disputes that have not reached court.
