Stanley chairman Ilyas Khan has reassured fans that the cuts at the Crown Ground do not mean the club is again in deep financial trouble.
There have been cuts in working hours and some redundancies among the office staff at the Crown Ground, which has led to some renewed fears that the Reds could face a battle for their future again, after almost being wound up in 2009.
The club have not yet officially released the names and positions of those involved as some of the staff are still deciding their futures.
However Khan says these were necessary measures to avoid a repeat of what happened two years ago and that, in fact, due to the cuts the club should be in a healthier financial position.
"Over the summer I have had to pump £150,000 into the club to remain solvent," said Khan, with outstanding wages owed to players due to be paid this week.
"The revenues for ASFC are dependent on attendance and sponsorshop and, since August, we have monitored both.
"Unfortunately the attendances are still low and, in terms of sponsorship, businesses in the North West don’t have money or don’t want to spend with us. Both are not what we have hoped for, in fact they are lower than we expected.
"So we have had to address it now and cut costs accordingly as the money the club is making is not enough to cover the costs. It is as simple as that.
"But the club is not in danger of folding, in fact this will make it heathier. It is in a good shape but, if we don’t act now, that might not be the case.
"The threat to the club previously was the tax and the debt and we do not have an issue with that now. When things improve, we will look to restore the situation for the employees."
Khan added: "I would like to say that Rob Heys (chief executive) has been magnificent through this and deserves a lot of praise."
The club have launched their new share issue this week, where fans can buy shares in the club.
Fans and businesses will be able to purchase one of 9,999 shares of the club for £100 each. Shareholders will be given the opportunity to vote at future AGMs, with one vote on offer for every share they own.
