Pensions audits

We have been actively involved in the preparation of Pension Scheme accounts for well over 20 years. From an early stage we recognised that the audit of Pension Schemes is distinct from many other audits and established a partner led team under Stewart Martin and his assistant Ben Wenzel. We have an excellent knowledge of the rules and regulations for auditing and reporting and work with many different Administrators in this field. Our clients range from 2 to 3 persons schemes to schemes with over 2500 members.

Farming & agriculture

In recent years the farming industry has seen many changes to their way of life and business success. We, together with our clients continue to help with all aspects of the impact on the farming community from the Single Farm Payment to diversification. We recognise how important it is to keep your tax plans under regular review and up-to-date. The family is a key part of the business of many farms, with the need to ensure that transfer of ownership passes smoothly from one generation to the next.

With schools taking over control of finances from the LEA and converting to academy status, Edmund Carr is well placed to assist in this process. We are aware from our vast experience that taking charge of finances is not something that appeals to everyone and also that contemplating changes in authority is not an easy subject to come to terms with.
