Chris Knott Partner, Head of CP Innovation, Cooper Parry
Chris uses his engineering background, tax qualification, R&D tax relief experience (22 years) and Made in the Midlands patronage to help companies claim their share of these generous reliefs.
He can speak to the client’s finance team about the positive impact any R&D incentives claims will have on the company’s accounts but he’s equally at home on the shop floor, talking to the engineers, technicians and scientists about what they’re actually doing.
This is why he loves his job, he gets to “look under the bonnet”, sometimes literally! Read more about Chris HERE
