Case study:

Unlocking over £1.4m of “hidden” resources

We regularly identify significant savings for our clients as we work with them as an extension of their team. When working on a significant project we identified and unlocked £1.4m of cash and cash equivalents (time and resources).

We noticed multiple areas where time was being used ineffectively, thereby leading to a vast amount of hours being made available which enabled the team to start new projects. We identified ongoing annual cost savings that they will continue to benefit from for many years to come and the team were able to surprise the CFO with a significant cash windfall pre-year-end.

The Starting Toll

Our work involved identifying:

  • funds held by service providers that were due to the organisation;
  • efficiencies in company secretarial ways of working from our combined 150 years of working in-house across all industries;
  • external service providers to change/renegotiate with (from overseas company secretarial service providers to company lawyers) resulting in higher quality service delivery; and
  • company secretarial software licenses that were not effective including entity management, electronic board pack collation, e-signing, share plans and insider lists.

Achievement Highlights

From working with us our client was able to:

  • Commence their new projects ahead of the year-end as requested;
  • Unlocked over £1.4m of cash/savings ahead of year-end (more than the team’s total annual budget);
  • Elevate service provider output and hold them accountable for quality delivery which saved time and money;
  • Benchmark and renegotiate their company secretarial software contracts; and
  • Reduce annual company secretarial service fees based on our knowledge of “usual” overrun costs and our gravitas in the industry.

What we did

We are truly independent in our views on service providers but well-known in the industry for being experts in our field.

This gave us a distinct advantage enabling us to command preferential rates given our knowledge of what other organisations are being charged, identify early where cost ‘overruns’ are likely to occur and ensure the right quality of delivery for your investment.
