Reviews

MICHAEL, NOV 21

“You did what you were supposed to, but did it pretty well.”

WILL, APR 23

“Great communication. Quick to reply to questions.”

PAUL, JAN 24

“Great service and always timely communication. I feel we have a partner supplier rather than just an auditor”

MEGAN, FEB 24

“We always get a quick reply whenever we have an issue or a query. It was a very good team of auditors that undertook our audit once again – a mixture of continuity and some new faces – and accommodating our tight reporting deadline was much appreciated”

MATT, FEB 24

“My first encounter with the CP audit team and I was impressed. Calm, reliable, organised and ultimately professional. Understanding and sympathetic to our circumstances and keen to work with us to achieve an outcome”

JAMES, FEB 24

“Smooth audit with knowledgeable and friendly staff. I have received great input from both audit partner and manager in my first year as CFO. I have appreciated the pragmatic and flexible approach”

PAMELA, JAN 24

“Robust communication. Excellent support. Supportive business partnership”

MICK, JAN 24

“Always prompt with accurate advice and accounts. Cannot think how you can improve”

MARION, JAN 24

“Audit processes work very well with Inflo and supported well by phone calls or Teams calls throughout the audit process. Outside of audits, advice on any matters financial is usually quick and helpful and never appears to be too much trouble. Any of the audit teams we have worked with throughout the years have always shown the same friendly professionalism that is supportive, fair and informative, which is crucial when and if things don’t always go to plan or unexpected outcomes occur. Thank you very much”

JADE, JAN 24

“The team are always responsive and their approach to audit is refreshingly solution orientated. I already refer them on a regular basis”
