“We started working with Cooper Parry in 2020 as we felt the team would be able to play a key part in our growth plans. However, unexpectedly we had the opportunity to sell our business which was certainly not part of our original long-term plans.
The guys at Cooper Parry were able to quickly respond to our changing needs and put a team in place that could cover all aspects of our disposal from due diligence, tax and finally planning for inheritance tax considerations. All professionals worked together seamlessly and the biggest compliment I could give is that it felt they were putting the same effort and attention to detail to the deal as if it were their own money at stake. You can’t underestimate the importance of this during an incredibly challenging time for us as business owners.
CP’s tax team were incredible. If their objective was to make tax look ‘sexy’ then sadly they failed. If their goal was to give well thought through and impartial advice whilst giving us peace of mind and reassurance then they certainly succeeded. We are incredibly grateful that they played such a central part in the transaction.”
Former MD Childs Time Ltd
Childs Time provides childcare facilities for busy families with day nurseries in Nottingham and Derby. Tony and his partner, who together ran Childs Time, needed tax advice on separating the ownership of the associated properties from the business prior to receiving offers to buy their nursery business. Once an offer was on the table, they also needed tax advice on the sale.
