TESTIMONIALS

£230k tax refund

Our specialist tax relief knowledge supported this client

On the 11th June 2018 we made a R&D tax claim for Aesthetic Integration. On the 16th July 2018, after HMRC had completed their checks, the client received a £230k tax refund! We identified that our client was undertaking qualifying R&D projects so, our experts assisted them to establish how much they were entitled to in tax relief. By computing the amount spent on their works, we were able to swiftly put together and submit the claim.

“Cottons London helped us to achieve a £230k tax credit. Their understanding of taxation has been incredibly useful.”

Magdalena Wojcik, Aesthetic Integration Limited

Start-up Support

How we ensured this start-up was great from the get go

After being approached by start-up retailer, Jack Davison we were able to ensure that their accounting solutions were efficient from the get-go. By employing our knowledge of point of sale and accounting software, we were able to construct a smart system which met this client’s needs. We implemented this record keeping system quickly enabling us to then focus on business planning and cash flow in line with their long-term plans.

“As a start-up, we can’t thank Cottons London enough for their expertise in support. Now we use Xero we can see our finances live.”

Will Davison, Jack Davison Bespoke Limited

THE DRIVING FORCE

It’s true, you are more likely to see our accountants sporting a pair of New Balances than a pair of Brogues. Cottons London has the reputation of being one of the most contemporary accountancy practices in the capital. But where has this come from?

Ollie Warne

B.A., A.C.A | Founder

Following his upbringing in the Midlands and training in Manchester, Ollie moved to London, now regarding East London as his spiritual home. After spending time working at various firms with some brilliant brands and bands alike (counting ASOS, Rekorderlig and even The Courteeners on his C.V!) he made the move to open this Southern branch of Cottons and use these experiences to drive its areas of focus.

Ross Stokes

A.C.A. | Chartered Accountant

Ross is an ACA chartered accountant who works particularly with small businesses, qualifying in 2012. Ross gained his practising certificate in 2017 and now works on a varied portfolio of clients in our London office taking a special interest in each one. He enjoys getting to know each client’s business thoroughly and is happy to advise on all areas of business. In particular business plans and forecasts with a view to gaining investment along with the usual tax planning and business advice which is vital to a small business.
