We can make a difference…
Drawing on our extensive industry knowledge and our deep understanding of regulation and legislation our friendly and professional team will tailor their approach specific to your business, based on their sound understanding of your organisation, the care sector and the financial risks that face it.
From buying a first care home to refinancing well-established groups, we can assist with arranging bank funding.
We also work with a panel of industry experts to provide access to a myriad of specialist investors and funding options.
We work with industry leaders to ensure our clients make all the capital allowances claims that they are entitled to.
Over the years this has resulted in tax savings for several clients in excess of £100,000.
Financial Due Diligence.
Usually a pre-requisite for banks and venture capitalists, our due diligence service can also help uncover “skeletons in the closet” that might affect your decision to acquire or invest in the business.
After the due diligence process, you’ll have a much better understanding of the potential strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the target business.
Our expertise and understanding of the sector enables a quick and efficient process targeting key areas specific to the industry.
As care home operators often have a large number of employees, our dedicated payroll bureau provides employers with a flexible, high quality solution for all your payroll needs.
Our specialist team can also handle all aspects of auto enrolments by offering employers a range of solutions that can be tailored specifically to any individual business.
With an increasing level of scrutiny imposed by funders often wanting monthly or quarterly management accounts, we can help in preparing the management information in a format acceptable to the funders. We can also assist with the calculations of bank covenants and the preparation of bank covenant reports.
Acquisitions & Disposals.
We have advised on several deals over the last few years from single home purchases and sales to the acquisition of large groups.
We are able to offer a comprehensive service to clients wishing to expand or exit a business.
Virtual Finance Director.
In our experience smaller care home operators often do not have the workload to warrant a full time Finance Director position.
Virtual Finance Director provides you with years of sharp end financial and management experience, at a fraction of the cost of employing a full time person.
Over the years we have inherited several care home clients who pay too much tax because of the way that the business has been structured.
We ensure that businesses are structured in the most tax efficient way to enable clients to achieve their desired goals and objectives.
Additionally, our specialist tax advisers can pinpoint areas where tax can be mitigated by identifying further tax planning opportunities.
Share Schemes to Motivate Key Staff.
We can help set up incentive arrangements, bonus schemes and a range of other flexible benefits that are proven to motivate employees.
