Responsible Officer Auditing

Gain assurance that your finances are in order.

Every academy or MAT requires to have a termly audit of its finance to make sure they are in order. 

If you lack the internal resources to conduct a review, Strictly Education can provide this service for you.

The onsite review takes place at the end of each term and looks at the three areas of the accounts; payroll, purchasing and control accounts incorporating income. A report is then produced and forwarded to the school for submission at the next governors meeting.

The main features of our finance support service are highlighted below.
