Budgeting and Management Accounting


The management accounting team supports schools and services in the management of their financial resources.

The responsibilities of the team include the provision of advice and support in development of annual school/service budgets; preparation of monthly finance reports in conjunction with schools and services, and the subsequent distribution of monthly finance reports; preparation of quarterly management accounts; and coordination of year end financial close-down.

The management accounting team also provides ad-hoc support where required to help schools and services to develop meaningful financial reports and output from the finance system, and assist with financial modelling.
