A leading accountancy firm has strengthened its social housing offering after announcing a strategic alliance with a specialist transformation consultancy.

RSM, which provides audit and advisory services to over 160 clients in the social housing sector, is to partner with Vantage Business Solutions to extend the range of services and products it is able to offer clients.

Among the services Vantage is rolling out with RSM is its savings assessment service which gives housing providers a snapshot view of the improvement opportunities and potential savings within repairs and maintenance and major works programmes.

Tony Bryan, Chief Executive of Vantage Business Solutions, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with RSM to provide their clients with a range of additional social housing services and products.

“RSM is an industry leader in providing its clients with outstanding accountancy, audit and business services. Our specialist transformation services and products will enable them to further extend what they can offer their clients.

“The social rent cut has caused turmoil in the social housing sector and presented providers with enormous financial and service challenges. Together with RSM we will be aiming to deliver solutions to their clients.”

Gary Moreton, RSM’s Head of Social Housing, said: “Vantage Business Solutions is well established and highly regarded in the social housing sector for their specialist financial transformation services and this strategic alliance enables us to provide an even more comprehensive offering to our clients.”
