Our Services

Technical Advice

We believe that our technical advice should complement our debt management and investment advice and we ensure that the service covers the compliance, strategic and accounting advice necessary to achieve this.

With a wealth of significant financial experience, our CIPFA qualified accountants are well equipped to provide our clients with the best possible service available. Our areas of expertise include capital finance, local government reorganisation and grant commutation.

Up-to-date with current issues

Due to a developing treasury management and capital accounting sectors, we appreciate the importance of staying up-to-date and abreast of current issues affecting the industry. By doing so we are able to publish research papers, market updates and technical bulletins to alert clients to any changes that may be specifically related to their interests.

Communication is key

In order to ensure that the advice that we provide to our clients remains accurate, compliant and relevant, we maintain regular dialogues with established contacts at HM Treasury, FCA, CLG, CIPFA, the ratings agencies and with external audit.

Communication with clients is achieved through a variety of channels, including by telephone and at the face-to-face strategy meetings. These are then backed up with worked examples reflecting the client’s specific circumstances.

At Arlingclose we strive to provide our clients with easy to understand advice on accounting for financial instruments and capital finance at the end of the financial year. What’s more, we hold regional Accounts Closedown Workshops each year to discuss the issues impacting on the Statement of Accounts in relation to Treasury Management as set out in the Code of Practice.
