Academies Back to school report

Welcome to the third edition of our Back to school report. In this edition we look at a number of issues affecting academies.

We act as adviser, financial statements auditor, or internal audit assurance provider to in excess of 250 academies, from stand-alone academy trusts to many of the larger multi-academy trusts. We also provide valued support to the EFA and a number of other sector organisations.

The key areas for this edition are:

  • The latest edition of the Academies Financial Handbook
  • Connected parties – transparency is all
  • Conversion to FRS 102 and the Charities SORP 2015
  • Back to basics for fraud resilience and our top 10 tips
  • School trips – managing risk

Our academies team would be delighted to hear from you. Please feel free to contact either Mike Cheetham, National Head of Academies, or your usual RSM contact.
