Often, professional services firms focus on delivering excellent client service, which can come at the expense of planning for and growing their own business.

Professional Services

Our team takes on this responsibility, using their in-depth knowledge of individual industries to ensure our professional services clients are operating efficiently and profitably, despite economic climate pressures.

We also ensure full compliance with this sector’s complex reporting and legislative requirements, including rules imposed by the various regulatory bodies they may operate under.

We currently work with accountants, architects, auctioneers, barristers, estate agents & property managers, financial advisors, insurance brokers, management consulting services, mortgage brokers, and RICS chartered surveyors.

We assist our professional services clients with:

  • Client account reports for ARLA
  • Audit work for independent financial advisors
  • FCA audit reports for insurance brokers
  • Practice accounts and partner’s tax returns
  • Business plans, budgeting, cash flow and financial forecasts
  • Business structure advice
  • Financial management and control
  • Industry benchmarking
  • Mergers and acquisitions – valuation, obtaining the best deal and tax efficient planning
  • Rewarding and retaining key employees through Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI’s)
  • Succession planning and exit strategies for a partner’s retirement
  • Pensions and wealth planning

“We turned to Champion in 2014 as we embarked on a growth journey, and they have provided everything we needed and more. As well as managing our payroll, VAT and accounts, the Champion team is ready to jump into action when the unexpected happens. They were invaluable in helping us navigate the pandemic, providing information, giving confidence, and overseeing furlough payments, among other things.

“Champion also played a key role in helping us to claim R&D tax credits, which we weren’t aware that we were eligible for. They identified that a few challenging projects qualified for the scheme due to the innovative solutions that we’d developed. We wouldn’t have been aware of this without Champion.

“The service we receive is excellent. Our advisors are easy to get hold of and always deliver great advice.”

Joseph Boniface, Director at Joseph Boniface Architects
