Shaping service charge accounting
We operate dedicated centres of excellence that provide technical expertise and leadership to the commercial, residential and registered provider sectors.
Delivered through detailed and comprehensive project management, our technical teams understand what it takes to deliver a multi-faceted project adhering to strict deadlines.
Our Residential and Commercial centres of excellence work closely together to help shape service charge regulations. We were key members of the ICAEW working parties that developed the technical releases TECH 03/11 and TECH 09/14BL and have a close relationship with RICS and contribute to the working party for the RICS Professional Statement for Service Charges in Commercial Properties.
We also regularly run events and issue technical updates on issues related to service charges to keep you abreast of developments in the industry.
PropCost is our independent benchmarking tool for service charge costs in the commercial sector developed in association with RICS. Please see our latest PropCost report for the latest news.
