"Hi Alan, This is just a big thank you from all at John Young Signs for the service that you have provided us. We have been delighted with the quality of service and professionalism that we have received over the last 7 years within the growth of our business. The back up is there when we need it, and knowing that we have peace of mind within our accounts is such a weight off our shoulders. From a simple question to our full end of year accounts, we can't fault the service and are happy to promote your service to any of my clients in the future. Here's to many more years working together. "

"If you look at Tax Investigation Protection and say ‘it can’t happen to me’, have a rethink!  I set up my business in 1985, never employed more than 5 people, usually less, yet I’ve had 2 NI investigations, 2 VAT investigations and 3 tax investigations! Because Thomson Cooper have always been my accountants, every time I’ve had a clean bill of health but, without the insurance, it would have cost a lot in fees.  The last one took a year and would have cost over £6,000. My advice – the cover is worth it! And Thomson Cooper were so very supportive! "

Frances Nolan, Drumbeat - Fee Protection

Personal Debt Client

"Shortly before our staging date and due to circumstances out with our control, we had to bring our payroll back in house. With less than 3 weeks notice, Elaine got us up and running with Sage Payroll which allowed us to transition away from our outsourced provider without any disruption being visible to the wider business. Having got ourselves reacquainted with the Sage payroll product we then had to decide how we were going to handle Auto Enrolment calculations for c. 700 staff. Elaine provided a comprehensive demonstration of how Sage could do this for us and quickly got the team comfortable that this would not be an onerous task on an ongoing basis. Having purchased the software from Sage for us (at a discount!) Elaine then came on site to support the team through the first month of using the Sage AE module and helped guide us through the initial setup. Without Elaine’s support and knowledge, I know that we would not have got the best out of what the software has to offer. As a growing business, it was important that we built a solid payroll process to cope with increased headcount and Elaine’s help with this has been invaluable "

Liam Bain, Financial Controller

"I used to go on a forum for people in a similar position to myself. I found it quite therapeutic to see people with similar problems being given advice by the financial consultants on there, and now and again I would put my tuppence worth in as well. There were some real horror stories on there and my heart would go out to the people concerned. They weren't just about their own financial situation, many were complaints about the practitioner working on their behalf, and on reading them I used to be so grateful that was never me ! Right from day one, three long years ago, you have kept me informed with everything and any question I had, of which they were many (!) was answered promptly with the indication that it was no trouble at all to provide an answer. Then of course there was the discharge which seemed to be text book, and going back to the forum with stories of people waiting months and even years for theirs, to have it done and dusted within a week of my final payment was just brilliant ! So thanks again Susan, to yourself and everybody at Thomson Cooper who had an input in my case, it was very much appreciated. "
