Here at Grant-Jones Accountancy Ltd we are passionate about building every type of business as we believe that improving businesses improves lives. We have recently become an approved schools's supplier so we can touch the heart of the local community by showing Academies how to achieve their full potential.
Academy status is an exciting opportunity, providing budgetry control and more freedom in decision-making. That additional control comes with great responsiblity, however, and being able to make good quality decisions from a sound understanding of the financial implications is a key to becoming an outstanding academy.
- How much budget is available for extra-curricula activities?
- Can we afford to give staff a bonus - and how much?
- What would be the implications of changing the school hours on our running costs?
- How do we know if all our income is exempt from tax?
- Would a trading subsidiary be more tax efficient for us?
Grant-Jones are Chartered Management Accountants and Chartered Tax Advisers. We have been trained in commercial environments across a range of industries, so we understand the real challenges that Academies face and can apply tried and tested solutions from our wide experience in financial managment.
We can, of course, manage all the financial processes for compliance, such as book keeping and statutory accounts. Additionally we can help you provide financial reporting and forecasting for your academy trust and your regional schools commisioner as well as anything required by Ofsted.
Where we really make the difference, however, is by empowering you to make the best business decisions. We give you accurate, up-to-date information at your fingertips, so that you can evaluate options and understand the consequences.
We also keep one eye on the future with our budget, forecasting and cash-flow planning services. Cash is the life blood of any Academy and we will show you how to plan for the future and be ready for any eventuality as well as modelling the likely financial implications of major projects and investment opportunities.
We offer packaged solutions to give you control over your finances as well as customised planning and advisory services to meet your unique needs.
What's more, as a B1G1 Business for Good, Grant-Jones will also make an impact on one of the most disadvantaged communities if you sign up to our Academy Financial Services.
