The Numbers Team Get a New "Addition"

Lightcliffe Škoda made a significant new appointment recently taking on Chris Shuell as it's new dealership accountant. Chris has held senior positions with other major franchises including Volvo and Toyota and his in-depth knowledge of dealer accounting systems makes him a welcome addition to the team. 

“Accounts are the engine room of any business and their smooth running and efficient reporting systems are essential for any business to function correctly” mused John Sharp, the Lightcliffe General Manager. “With Brexit only a few months away it's fair to say that any importer of high-value capital items is likely to face some challenges and having a team member with Chris’s experience will be invaluable”.

With e-commerce getting close to being the norm in nearly every industry, the motor trade is no exception and accounts are being digitised at an breath-taking rate. Chris's experience with other major brands and his understanding of different technologies will help to provide a safe pair of hands as these unchartered waters are navigated.  

Even though Chris has only been with us for a short space of time he has hit the ground running and is already making a difference.  He is also very likeable person which we are proud to say is a pre-requisite for anyone who joins the team here at Lightcliffe.

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
