Your specialist service requires a tailored service provider who is committed to helping you, your tenants and the local community. We understand that social housing organisations (RSLs) provide a unique service and want to thrive in the face of continued pressures.

Our team has worked in the sector for over 30 years to provide thought leadership, insight and technical advice. Via regular newsletters and events hosted by our specialist Social Housing Group, you will access a range of advisors from tax, VAT, audit and business support. Pension and payroll advice is also on hand if required.

  • White steps going up a green wall

Working together in partnership, you will have a dedicated point of contact who has developed a strong understanding of your needs during the audit planning process.  Control procedures and systems are updated and a tailored audit strategy helps deliver a governance structure that has potential risks and their mitigation firmly in mind.  Whether you want help with best practice governance training or compliance with the new SORP, your Chiene + Tait team is on hand.

  • Steps leading upwards from a red door to a yellow door to a green door

Revisiting your forecasts is an essential exercise to know your true financial position and will assist with planning for the future health.  Some RSLs request our support of an external team to prepare or check forecasts. This review helps you to move workloads between team members, capacity freed and an extra pair of hands available from us to make sure all efficiencies are maximised. If you need bookkeeping, liaising with banks, invoices or payroll advice, we are here to help.

  • A builder climbs up a ladder against a wall

There are times when you experience a shortage in staff and need cover. A team member may have a long term period of sickness; you may have an unexpected leaver or someone on maternity leave. Whatever your circumstances, our team will help cover short-term gaps until a permanent solution is found.

Tax and VAT

Our team will review your tax and VAT planning liabilities to ensure that you are aware of your tax position and work with you to make sure opportunities are maximised.
