The Accounting for Schools (AFS) team includes Chartered Accountants, meaning we provide important insight and plain English guidance around finances. We understand that a board of trustees may struggle to make sense of the financial reporting process, and we see one of our key roles as decoding the numbers.
Our in-depth knowledge in the accounting and education sectors is a result of many year’s experience through both our sister firm All Accounted For, and our strong relationships with 70+ New Zealand schools.
We fully understand all the key accounting and financial issues that schools face, and recognise the importance of quantifying a school’s financial position to facilitate future planning. We are experts in explaining the ‘dark art’ of managing teacher entitlements, 10-year property plans, cyclical maintenance and in more recent times, the key issues surrounding lease arrangements.
