Architects

Whilst Architects and Engineers share some traits with other professions and industries, the challenges they face are often quite different. Specialist knowledge combined with long-term planning can help to ensure sustainable profits and strong cash flow, the hallmark of a successful practice.

We have a growing reputation in the London Architect, Engineering and Design markets and we have advised several of the UK’s most iconic practices on a broad range of strategic issues. Of necessity we offer not just the normal compliance services that you would expect but also bespoke consulting and strategic advice.

Some of the recent advisory projects we have completed include:

  • Succession Planning: We understand the complexities of succession planning and help practices move from generation to generation
  • Optimising the Finance Function: We have reviewed a number of practices and reported to the board on the efficiency and effectiveness of their existing Finance Functions.
  • Tax Planning for International Project: We have the tax expertise both in London and internationally to support our client’s international expansion plans. Many firms are working more globally and this is a popular strategy to hedge against the UK economic downturns.
  • Profitability Reviews: Working with Heads of Finance, we critically review existing financial processes including invoicing, credit control and overhead costs to identify profit and working capital improvement opportunities.
