Case Study: Cricket Scotland Limited

A long-term relationship with a real insight to our business

“Jim Lockhart, who is now part of the Armstrong Watson team, has been working with Cricket Scotland Limited for over a decade. We have worked closely not only on the audit and tax services, but also when hosting major events such as the World T20 qualification competition in 2015. Jim and the team have consistently delivered and have provided valuable insight when needed.”

Cricket Scotland Limited governs the game of cricket throughout Scotland, from grassroots through to the highly successful International Game. The national teams, both male and female, are now playing at the highest levels on the world stage, helping to deliver the strategic plan to develop the sport for everyone in Scotland to enjoy.

The company has worked closely with Jim Lockhart since 2004, through four World Cup cycles and a significant rise in the profile of the International game in Scotland.

Why Cricket Scotland work with us

A strong relationship has been built between the two organisations, through the board, the audit committee and the finance team. We have built up a deep understanding of the environment in which the organisation operates as well as the subtleties of the wealth of activities in which Cricket Scotland are involved in, be that on an international and domestic level.

We challenge and support the organisation in order to add value to the relationship, and we operate with high levels of trust.

How do we help?

First and foremost, we deliver the audit to a very defined timetable in order that the accounts are available for the Annual General Meeting. The team is well briefed and the assignment runs like clockwork.

We are also on hand throughout the year, should anything arise that requires our expertise.

“Jim has built up considerable experience of our organisation over the years and has an excellent insight into the operations of the company and environment in which we operate. He, and the rest of his team, are genuinely interested in what we do, and this is apparent in all of our dealings with them.”

Douglas Lockhart, Audit Committee Chair
