Ward Goodman, Chartered Accountants and Independent Financial Advisers, is pleased to count Swanage Railway Trust as one of its esteemed clients. The award winning steam railway has been a client of the firm since 2013 and act for them in respect of audit, accounts preparation and business tax for the trading subsidiary.
Jen Richardson, Audit and Charities Director at Ward Goodman explained: “The unique aspect in working with Swanage Railway Trust has been ‘Project Wareham’ – the initiative to reinstate a timetabled passenger rail service between Swanage and Wareham. Swanage Railway was awarded a £1.4m grant in 2013 to run passenger trains up to the main line at Wareham, and seeing this develop and come to fruition over the past four years has been interesting for everyone involved in the audit.”
Andrew Moore, Finance Director and Treasurer of Swanage Railway Company Ltd, said: “Ward Goodman provide us with first rate professional advice and guidance. We have found all the staff to be helpful and friendly and very willing to assist us to grow our business and to ensure our financial systems are fit for purpose.”
