For schools who are already established academies, Bates Weston provides both an accounting and an audit service.
Bates Weston staff are subject to Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in all aspects of charities accounting and educational audits, and staff also attend FMS courses to increase our ability to help schools with their day to day enquiries.
Our services are tailored to the needs of each school, but in general most academies require:
- A financial accounting service producing the Academy Trust accounts, financial statements and the AAR for the accounting period ending 31 August
- An audit service, including compliance with the current Academies Financial Handbook regarding AAR and Regularity Reporting
- Real Time Information (RTI) payroll service, including all end of year returns
