The Cashroom

The Cashroom

alex.holt@thecashroom.co.uk | 0330 332 2520 | www.thecashroom.co.uk

The Cashroom provides services to a Law Firm, cashier services, management accounting and payroll. Your firm may only want to use one of these services or all three. The Cashroom provides all the legal cashier services typically provided to a firm of solicitors; the difference is that “your” cashiers are employed by us and work remotely from our offices. Amongst many other things, we maintain all books and records, pay suppliers, reconcile the bank accounts on a daily basis, perform day and month end routines, submit your VAT return, and ensure full compliance with the Solicitors Accounts Rules.

Management Accounts and Management Information provide the information you need to run your business. Budgets, cash flow projections and monthly management accounts are crucial to knowing where you are, and predicting where you’re going. The Cashroom will take care of all aspects of running your payroll, including all statutory payments, student loans, pensions, attachments and any other payments and deductions. Our dedicated Payroll specialists will also administer your ‘auto-enrolment’ / workplace Pension in accordance with the regulations.

Since our involvement with LEAP & Xero in 2014, our Accounts training has provided a great opportunity to showcase the skills of our Legal Accounts professionals. The greatest recommendation of all being that when we walk away from the training, the firm trusts and respects the judgement of the legal accounts trainers so much that they make that call and ask us to take care of their cashiering for them.

We don’t offer a one size fits all cashiering service, as we find each firm has different requirements. Some require complete posting, reconciliation and management accounts services, whilst others just want a rubber stamp review of internal reconciliations or even a year end check-up. We employ senior cashiers and ILFM qualified individuals, and the team is headed up by Chartered Accountant and Managing Director, Nicola Moore-Miller.

As well as the day to day cashiering, we have found that the “change event” that is the migration to a new Practice Management System such as LEAP, often results in some time critical accounting projects. One of the services we have found to be very popular is our “Accounts Rescue” service. This can involve bringing a backlog of accounts up to date, reconciling complex balances which have become unwieldy over time and also migration anomalies which can result pre or post data conversion.
