Accountants and business advisors Beever and Struthers have partnered with the National Leasehold Group (NLG) as its lead service charges assurance provider, providing service charge training and expertise.

As the number one provider of audit services to the social housing sector in England, Beever and Struthers continues to be at the forefront of financial reporting across the sector.  

Beever and Struthers provides service charge examination services for over 100,000 variable service charge residents annually, providing technical expertise to housing associations across the country.

Michael Tourville (pictured right), Partner, and National Head of Service Charges at Beever and Struthers, said: “Assisting housing associations with the complex financial reporting and assurance responsibilities for leasehold service charge statements continues to be a key focus for Beever and Struthers. We continue to invest in our team and resources to provide housing associations with the assurance required for service charge statements compliant with legislation.  Landlords face a range of risks including fire safety costs, building safety costs and environmental improvements. Recharging a fair and reasonable proportion to residents in line with legislation can be a challenge. We continue to help associations navigate these risks.”

Maria Hallows (pictured left), Executive Partner and Head of Social Housing at Beever and Struthers, said: “Over 50 per cent of our business comes from the social housing sector and service charge assurance services are at the forefront.  We look forward to supporting the National Leasehold Group and its members as their lead service charge assurance provider.

Alan Wake, CEO, NLG said: “We are delighted to have Beever and Struthers on board as partners of the NLG. The group exists to support housing professionals in leasehold management through training, networking, and events. The support of our partners allows us to subsidise our delivery while also benefiting hugely from their vast experience in the sector. Beever and Struthers are established as key service providers to our members and have already supported us immensely in terms of how we manage the increasingly challenging area of Service Charges. I look forward to working with them moving forward.
