They also prepare sub-group accounts and consolidated financial statements, ensuring that we’re globally compliant with all the necessary accounting standards.

Tax and Treasury

This team deals with all aspects of our corporate tax. That includes collecting direct debits and offering a full range of retail banking and treasury services to our stores in the UK, Netherlands and Republic of Ireland. It also involves maintaining our liquidity from day to day, and managing our loan book across those same three countries.

Finance Customer Response

As finance ambassadors to our store partners and customers, this team operates a live call centre to deal with all finance-related queries.
