‘We moved to Cooper Parry after experiencing a less than satisfactory experience working with some of the larger practices including two of the Big 4. Primarily we used Cooper Parry for our annual audits that cover the Jumar group in the UK and Australia. Early on CP supported a demerger of our company creating a holding company which was very well structured and managed by their team.   As our relationship flourished with CP. We then expanded the number of projects with outstanding results.  Early in our relationship, they persuaded us to carry out an R&D assessment which had always been done by previous auditors. CP uncovered under-claimed R&D costs resulting in a claim of £120k previously missed.

Our Audit process with CP is extremely pain-free and well-managed by our Cooper Parry team with minimal disruption to our business. More recently CP carried out a review of our existing EMI scheme and again found some errors made by our previous advisors which could have caused us some issues in due diligence during any potential exit event.  I have so many examples I could give about how friendly, professional and exceptionally proactive the CP team are.  I  do not have a financial background but every person I speak to at Cooper Parry takes the time and care to explain every step of the way what we need to do as a business.  We are in extremely safe hands.’
