McLintocks have many years experience in the field of education and act for a number of schools and colleges. The Government has given a new impetus to this sector by encouraging schools to convert to academies under the Academies Act 2010.

Academies will need the services of firms like McLintocks because we have the expertise and extensive experience of working with academies and similar organisations to ensure they comply with the ever increasing number of regulations they face.

Those schools currently applying for academy status will need guidance and advice on the regulatory environment they are entering.

For newly formed academies they will have new financial and governance responsibilities which they will be unfamiliar with and we can assist by providing compliance focusing on systems, accounting, VAT and Responsible Officer duties.

The well established academy will face new challenges and needs to ensure its finance department is running efficiently to cope with these. It will have already appointed advisers and needs to consider whether are still appropriate.

Our services include:-

  • Advice on conversion;
  • Advice on accounting software;
  • Payroll Bureau service;
  • VAT
  • Review of internal controls;
  • Preparation of financial manual;
  • Risk management review;
  • Cash flow management;
  • Responsible Officer duties;
  • Internal audit;
  • Annual audit of financial statements;
  • Employment tax and pensions issues;
  • Company secretarial services.

Our fees are always competitive and they include free telephone or e-mail advice throughout the year on book-keeping, accounts preparation, returns and tax and VAT issues.
