KPMG Small Business Accounting Becomes a REC Business Partner


The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) has announced that KPMG Small Business Accounting has joined its business partnership scheme.

KPMG Small Business Accounting is a fixed-fee accounting service for small business, including recruitment firms. With prices starting from £125 per month, recruitment leaders can benefit from one-to-one advice from KPMG experts, helping to ensure they stay on top of accounting, bookkeeping, compliance, and tax requirements.

As part of the deal, REC Members can sign up to the service free for a three month period.

REC Chief Executive Kevin Green says:

“Bringing one of the ‘big four’ on board is a real statement of intent by the REC. We want our members to benefit from the best levels of service and great advice. Recruitment business owners are extremely busy; having a KPMG expert on-hand will give them peace of mind so that they can focus on running their organisation. The fact that REC members can access this service for free for three months is a real enhancement of our offering to small recruitment businesses.”

Damian Wasey, Head of Sector Partnerships, KPMG Small Business Accounting, says:

“As changes in legislation such as the introduction of auto-enrolment, and seasonal fluctuations in the labour market take effect, recruitment companies face greater strain on their admin function than ever before. We believe that accountants for recruitment firms should therefore be doing much more than just the basics. They should also be offering insights across all kinds of business-critical areas, from cash flow to generating management reports and advising on finance options. That’s what we’re offering at KPMG Small Business Accounting, and we’re delighted to be working with the REC to bring this service to their members.”
