Conversion support - Network with pins

Our Conversion Support team have helped and advised numerous schools with their conversion to academy status.

Before conversion

For schools considering conversion, you may wish to undertake a due diligence review to assess the pros and cons of conversion to determine whether this is a viable option for your school. This is a service that we can offer – ranging from a full, detailed review to just ad-hoc support and advice. For further information, please read our due diligence blog.

During and after conversion

For newly converted schools, we can help you set up a standalone finance function, assisting you in meeting your new regulatory responsibilities. Our services include:

  • Understanding the financial reporting requirements and deadlines
  • Assistance with software set up e.g. chart of accounts configuration and use of cost centres, posting opening balances
  • Advice on internal control, development of Financial Procedures Manuals and compliance with the Academies Financial Handbook – including undertaking the Responsible Officer role
  • Company secretarial support
  • VAT registration and support
  • Corporation tax support
  • Review of governance and governor training
