We've been using Alliotts as our auditors for over six years now and they're accessible, approachable and very generous with their time.
They work well with us as a team and have a good grasp of our business.
From time to time they have made helpful observations on our systems and processes that have been very positive and most useful. The fact that Alliotts have allocated the same audit partners to us throughout has been enormously helpful in terms of continuity. We are very happy with the service they provide to our organisation.
Mary Rose, Chief Executive, Independence at Home
We’ve been using Alliotts for more than 20 years for our accountancy and audit work, and in the past three years they’ve also been doing the payroll.
Overall, the service is professional and very friendly and I value their expertise – which is all the more important as many accountants lack the specialist knowledge and experience of charity accounts, which we require.
Peter Coulson, General Secretary, Seamen's Hospital Society
Alliotts are professional, friendly and proactive in the right quantity.
They give us strategic advice and have carried out a review of our accounting with targets to achieve. This will make our systems more secure and our administration more structured and focused.
They’re easy to approach and always willing to lend support and give advice. At the end of the day they’re very professional but also have a friendly family feel.
Arthur Donaldson MBE, Trustee, The Police Dependents Trust
We’ve been using Alliotts for just a year now and they have added value.
They’ve come up with fresh ideas and are very good at explaining things.
They’re also very friendly and work well with us as a team.
Ros Pitts, Administrator, Pathological Society of Great Britain
Alliotts and Fredericks Foundation worked extremely well together preparing the 2010-11 Annual Report.
We found them to be proactive, supportive and extremely helpful.
They have advised us how to be more efficient and hopefully that will not only save time but also save us money in the future.
George Halford, Finance Director, Fredericks Foundation
Alliotts have been working with Kings Canterbury for more than 10 years now and the partner we deal with is absolutely exceptional in being so accessible and hugely knowledgeable.
He has helped streamline our accounting and advised us on looking at practical things like stock levels, IT systems and operating modes. All this has saved us money.
What I really appreciate too is the clarity of thinking and the fact that we don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and ask for advice. Top marks!
Mark Taylor, Bursar, Kings School, Canterbury.
SATRO uses Alliotts for our annual audit because they are highly knowledgeable about the charity sector, they are incredibly efficient and effective, and they produce prompt and accurate results giving us the benefit of their expertise in useful advice. But it is more than just a service-client relationship; with Alliotts we really feel as if they are on our side – they are always friendly and supportive and understand the challenges of running a small charity today. I have recommended them to numerous other charities and I am very happy to continue to do so.
Dr Rebecca Bowden, SATRO
I am very happy to have had the support of Alliotts accountants since we became an Academy. They are helpful, always do what they say they will do and on the end of the phone if I have a query. They give me all the support I need as school business manager and, having only initially planned to use them for Year 1 of our change to academy status, we have now decided to continue to use them on an ongoing basis as we feel it really is money well spent to have their support and knowledge to guide us
Cathy Whiting, Ravensbourne School, Kent
We are very happy with the service we have received from Alliotts accountants. As our annual auditors, their team do a thorough and professional job ensuring that all deadlines are met. If I have issues during the year, I know that I can pick up the phone directly to Steve Meredith, the Partner at Alliotts and ask for advice. I would recommend Alliotts to other Academies looking for quality, professional financial support
Pallavi Shah, The Alec Reed Academy, London
As Business Manager for The Bishop Wand School, my role covers a large range of areas including HR and legal as well as finance. I need to be able to deal with an accountancy firm that will provide clear and concise guidance and be available for advice whenever I need it. We appointed Alliotts over and above other larger firms precisely because we felt that they would be able to offer us a more personal service. I know that I can pick up the phone and speak to Steve Meredith directly if I need advice and guidance on a particular issue which is exactly what I need to be able to do.
