Moving to Academy Trust status or forming a Multi Academy Trust can be a complex financial project but Dains can ease this burden by offering you a bespoke support package and becoming, in essence, part of your team.

We work with over 65 Academies in the Midlands and we can give you the tools to run help your Academy or Multi Academy Trust safe in the knowledge that you have the foundations of sound financial management beneath you.

As part of your team we work alongside the Governors, the finance function and the Trustees to offer the support you need.

We have been through several annual cycles with our Academy clients and can help to ensure that the statutory audit is completed to time and with the minimum level of disruption. We deliver this by getting to know you and your financial function at an early stage and working on any potential risk areas at an early stage.
