Catering & Non-Food

We can often improve on the good work done by your catering team, delivering lower prices and improved process — always without prejudicing quality standards.

Couriers & Post

We can help reduce courier and postal costs in the UK and internationally.

Credit Card Merchant Fees

Your credit card processor’s multi-layered charging structure can serve to confuse comparisons.

We work with your current processor on your behalf to lower your monthly fees and identify hidden fees, excessively high rates, and surcharges. Thereafter we can provide a monthly monitoring service.

Electricity & Gas

Utilities are a commodity that requires in-depth market knowledge to know when to commit to a contract. The Auditor’s service reduces both our clients’ energy unit cost and usage whilst ensuring compliance with legislation.

Historical Cost Recovery

Acting as a “ghost” department of your business, we recover cash with little input from your staff. Our review covers duplicate invoices, VAT errors, missed discounts, property rental/rates and insurance etc, dating back 4 years or more.

You only pay our fee once you have received any refunds/credits.

Many companies entering restructuring programme can now manage empty rate liabilities for non-operational properties. Our unique service combines legal expertise and qualified rating experts.

Telecoms

The review covers:

  • voice line rental & call charges
  • line audit: unused legacy lines, doubling up on services
