Balbirnie Park Golf Club
"I refer to the above company [SV Stocktaking & Auditing Services Ltd], and confirm that after several years of dealing with another company Balbirnie Park Golf Club decided to employ the services of Scottish Valuers. The result of changing company has assisted the Golf Club, within two years, achieve an increase in gross margin from 34% to an average of 59% reported in the last set of accounts.
This figure is recognised as being well above the industry norm, and has been highly commended by our auditors, Carters Chartered accountants.
Since posting of accounts ending September 2003, the gross margin has continued at the levels Scottish Valuers now expect, however, the directors of Scottish Valuers continue to work very closely with both staff and committee of the club, and to this end continue to add great value in respect of our working profits.
To provide a testimony without quantification or qualification of Scottish Valuers Stocktaking & Auditing Services Ltd actual abilities would, in my opinion, be insufficient for the purpose of an actual reference.
The above information should be sufficient for any prospective firm requiring first class stocktaking services, however, I can confirm on behalf of the management committee of Balbirnie Park Golf Club that we are delighted with our stocktaker and our only regret was not to employ them sooner."
Doug Davidson, Finance Convener
