Bespoke reporting

London

We were retained on an £800m fund by Orchard Street Investment Management and was asked to provide a daily trial balance in a format compatible for importing into their financial accounting system.

We worked closely with the client to elicit detailed requirements, enabling our internal systems specialist to quickly specify functional requirements and develop a custom reporting routine with our software providers.

Detailed testing and constant feedback ensured we met the brief, and as result we are efficiently delivering automated, accurate and transparent data on a daily basis.

Rent collection

UK

Following the acquisition of a £450m fund our client tasked us with collecting 100% of rents before the quarter day. The previous collection rate was below 80%.

Our credit controllers and surveyors in the client team worked collaboratively and put together a plan that began the collection process several weeks before the due date.

Consistent communication between all parties enabled us to eliminate queries and secure all payments prior to the due date. We successfully met the target and are continuing to do so.

 

Our team of experienced property accountants are dedicated to providing exceptional transaction management and financial reporting for our clients.

Robust procedures, efficient processes and smart systems provide the framework from which our team deliver accounting services. These are tailored to align with each of our clients' unique requirements and are fully compliant with RICS regulations and codes.
