Case Studies

Sports Club in South Bucks

Our client is a complex, multi-sports club with a diverse income stream from sports membership, bar sales and fund raising activities. VAT and CASC regulations for sports clubs provide a unique environment within which to work, as do the challenges of unusual opening hours and the flexibility required by volunteers and paid staff who all contribute to the successful operation of the club.

About Accounts were initially engaged to provide refresher training on QuickBooks and to recommend paper and electronic filing systems along with developing some easy to understand management report for the quarterly committee meetings.

About Accounts now regularly review the records and compliance issues, attend the committee meetings and are now engaged to prepare the year end accounts and tax computations. They also provide technical telephone support to the administrative staff when they need it!

A Company who arranges Work Experience Placements for Overseas Students

About Accounts were contacted in 2009 to help out with a backlog of bookkeeping which the busy business owners were unable to attend to. We now have an on going relationship with the business, providing not only bookkeeping and payroll services, but also management accounting and budgeting. This has enabled them to move to professional premises in central Slough, take on 6 new members of staff and concentrate all their efforts on growing the business safe in the knowledge that all their accounting and statutory matters are taken care of.

They are now seeking to buy their own premises, raise suitable business finance for this venture and expand their customer base. About Accounts continue to support the business owners and their staff through all these new challenges.
