As well as providing a thorough and rigorous annual audit, you have always been ready to provide instant help and advice on a variety of matters for which your professional expertise has been sought and greatly valued. We know too that we can rely on you to keep us up to date with any developments in charity law which might affect us, and that you will alert us in good time whenever we need to take action to comply with new regulations.

Whether in face to face meetings, telephone conversations or email exchanges, you are always respectful, courteous, patient and above all, friendly so that it is always pleasant and reassuring to engage with you. We don't doubt that your interest with us is genuine. You are, both individually and together, a very special firm and are grateful for your commitment to us.

“As CEO of Eastbourne & District Mencap Limited it is vital that we maintain a strong partnership with our Accountants. In all my dealings with Nick Brown of Plummer Parsons, I have found him to be very responsive and proactive, as well as providing good, sound, measured advice.

Nick was particularly helpful when we switched our trading to a “Company Limited by Guarantee”. He has always been extremely pleasant and courteous to all our staff.

I particularly like the charity seminars that are held on a regular basis that enable us to deal with important legislative changes.”

"Dear Nick,

Many thanks for your Email of 2nd April and interesting newsletter.

It is also a pleasure to express thanks and appreciation from the Committee for Gemma Stace's excellent presentation on the 2014 your colleagues' help given in straightening out the shortcomings which had arisen last year."



"Plummer Parsons have been invaluable to Eastbourne & Wealden YMCA in recent years, ensuring that our financial accountability & integrity are at the forefront of what we do & how we operate - this is so important as we rely greatly on public funding & donations.

They have enabled us to undertake a financial 'revolution' becoming more transparent to stakeholders, reporting financial data which is more easily accessible to our trustees & saving the charity considerable sums of money each year.

Plummer Parsons and the team have provided expertise ensuring that our financial reporting & audits are accurate & submitted on-time - important to the operation & ongoing success of any charity. The breadth and depth of this expertise, which is readily available, always exceeds our expectations.”

“Steve met with Alan and me and informed us of the possibilities of saving having to pay unnecessary VAT on our new project.  He also provided us with all the draft documentation we needed.

He was very helpful and had clearly undertaken a considerable amount of research on our behalf for which we are most grateful.  As a result of his advice we were able to save several thousand pounds which was obviously a significant help for us as a charity.
We really do appreciate his help.”

“Plummer Parsons took over the financial management of Linkswood (Eastbourne) and we are both delighted and confident. Mrs Pat Aisbitt was extremely helpful and most efficient in all aspects of the accountancy requirements from the budget to the  day to day running of the estate. In short, we were in good hands.”
Robert F. Spooner

“As a charity organization with links going back many years with Plummer Parsons, we have been wonderfully supported by the services of the company.  In recent years their work has been extremely encouraging in enabling us to understand the complexities of new charity laws and how it affects our agency.  Plummer Parsons ability is matched with a keen interest in our work, which has generated much confidence and is deeply appreciated by the Trustees and personnel of our charity.  We are very grateful for the firms wisdom and guidance.”

 “EDMA is a private company limited by guarantee, and a registered charity. Plummer Parsons has acted for the company since its incorporation in 1983; and Steve Smith has looked after EDMA for several years. During that time, in addition to ensuring that our annual Financial Statements are produced correctly, Steve has steered EDMA through the maze of Companies House, Charity Commission and VAT regulations; and also advised EDMA's Trustees on the disposal of charity assets.
Steve is friendly and approachable, and responds promptly to enquiries with comprehensive and reliable information. Many thanks.”
