Have been using Rawlinson, Pryde and Partners since I started my business 18 months ago. They have provided excellent professional advice and support services throughout this period and recently managed an HMRC VAT inspection for me through the business insurance scheme which resulted in a successful conclusion to the investigation despite some unforeseen complications. Matthew and his team provided excellent guidance and support throughout this stressful period. More than happy to recommend their services. – 4 Ever TT Ltd

After my first year of investing in cryptocurrencies I found myself in a bit of a mess. I had a bunch of exchange exports and screenshots from ico’s and wondering how I’d manage to work out what I owed in tax. I didn’t have much luck with the online tools, attempting to contact local accountants usually gave the “what are cryptocurrencies?” response. However, RPP were much more helpful and knowledgable about the cryptocurrency market.

Thankfully I came across Rawlinson Pryde, and after emailing them for advice I was contacted by them. They were really helpful in explaining exactly what I owe.

They advised the format which would make it the cheapest for me, but also gave me the option of giving them the raw files to sort it all out, which was worth the extra considering the mess I had to sort. Was a relief just to be able to send them everything i had and have an expert making sure it was done correctly. I found them to be professional throughout, quick to respond, even out of office hours, and generally made sure I understood everything despite being completely clueless when it came to anything tax related. They even sent off my tax return on my behalf, so all I have to do now is pay the bill.

Highly recommend and will definitely be using again.

RPP are incredibly knowledgeable accountants who are generous with their time. For the last year they’ve been helping my two businesses with payroll, vat, corporation tax, and accounting advice. They’re very approachable, conveniently located and have a great back office team too.

Rawlinson Pryde have been the Accountants for my wife and I for the past 3 years. They have prepared our tax returns and has dealt with our queries efficiently and promptly. They are very friendly and approachable and always at the end of the phone to offer advice. We would thoroughly recommend Rawlinson Pryde.

I run a small, limited company business – which RP&P helped me to set up. Since the start-up, and for over 15 years, RP&P have been looking after my year-end accounts and associated statutory returns (e.g. Companies House and Corporation Tax). They also handle my personal tax returns (e.g. Self-Assessment and RTI Payroll submissions) – and have provided solid advice on managing my tax arrangements – (personal and business).
During that time, there have been no problems whatsoever. The staff that I have worked with have been friendly, responsive, professional, intelligent and knowledgeable. Their work is always timely, thorough and of excellent quality. They are also able to explain issues and challenges in an easy-to-understand way – and offer good associated advice on the various options for addressing them.

Rawlinson Pryde has handled my accounts this year and I have been extremely impressed with their service. They are approachable and have been really efficient in dealing with any queries and clearly explaining the intricacies involved in tax planning. I would not hesitate to recommend the firm to anyone looking for an accountant.

Very professional yet personal service – I have received some excellent advice and they have certainly gone ‘above and beyond’. Highly recommended and wish I’d joined them sooner

I have been a client of the Rawlinson Pryde & Partners team since the 1980s. During this time they have provided me with simple but forward-thinking advice on how to best orchestrate my business finances for my personal benefit and that of our small family organisation. When the time came to switch from being a Sole Trade to Ltd Company they were very helpful and continue to offer sound and sensible advice, at reasonable rates, to ensure there are no unpleasant surprises with regard to VAT or any of the many taxes which impact small businesses. This advice has extended to how to manage the finances from an investment property which is part of my wider pension planning, where again they have helped me navigate that changing environment. When you are running a business over three decades, it is very helpful to have a side team of professionals like Rawlinson Pryde & Partners. I may only be a small client to them but I feel that they have taken great care of me and mine.
