R&D Claim: It was great working with the team. All very supportive and knowledgeable. The additional cash will help with our corporation tax payment

CP carry out the audit of our pension scheme accounts on behalf of the trustees. They work directly with the Scheme administrators which minimizes the burden on the trustees, which is very welcome. They also provide routine update of progress which means the trustees are always aware of the status. This is the ideal balance.

Excellent caliber of staff at all levels particularly at manager partner level. Extremely helpful and a good understanding of the business as it is and into the future. Every department I’ve worked with has maintained the excellent level of service.

Joined CP because of the history with James (and then Emma joined for an added +1). What I like is that we don't get surprise bills. We can have a chat, and if a SOW is needed for billing discuss on price at that stage. This makes me defend our use of CP internally when approached by others wanting business. R&D - good feedback from us there, and year end accounts as 1st year was a trial, but we got there. Improve - We always get your invoices late. (happy to pay them, but they disappear and take a couple of months to get to us)
