We are fortunate enough to have gained significant higher education experience in our team. You can rely on our team of specialists to provide you with truly effective guidance and support.
We can provide expert guidance covering areas such as:
We are perfectly situated to provide higher education institutions with award-winning advisory and accountancy services.
We understand the challenges you face
Higher education establishments are currently facing challenges over the rising cost of education. This is further impacted by utility increases, inflation and rising costs for defined benefit pension schemes, whilst tuition fees remain frozen for a further two years.
Sustainability and resilience remain key challenges in the higher education sector. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is permeating all sectors and the HE/FE sector is no different.
Regulatory changes arising from the review of post education and funding implications, as well as the developing strategy of Office for Students will impact on future plans and strategies of HE/FE sector entities.
A large rise in the number of international higher education applicants is expected to support the industry, and coupled with a drive in demand for full-time education, opportunities are available to higher education organisations.
With staffing a key expenditure and strikes disrupting the industry, it is important you have expert financial advisors on hand to provide advice on challenges as they arise with innovative solutions that are appropriate for the task at hand.
Working with you to maximise value
You need advisors who can navigate an ever changing legislative and statutory environment for you. We understand that you need to ensure that no criticism can be raised over your accounting, control and reporting processes, which could lead to reputational damage to your brand or pose questions over your governance, processes and procedures.
Our role is to assist you in your responsibilities, and offer the right information to you. Having auditors who understand the sector and best practice can be a key advantage to help you achieve your goals.
