"Our Charity has worked with Plummer Parsons for a number of years, and find their service to be invaluable. Their staff take time to understand the nature of our Charity, and what would best suit our needs, working with us as well as for us. They provide quality advice sourced from a wealth of knowledge of the Business Accounting world. We have found them to be consistent, reliable and they endeavour to help us with all manner of queries. They ensure that we understand the requirements and expectations for a successful audit process. A highly recommended Accounting firm."

"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"
