Simon is an impressive fount of knowledge in respect of R&D tax credits and helped us make sense of what could otherwise have been a very confusing process. His almost instant grasp of what our business does and what would constitute R&D activity gave us great confidence - we look forward to working with Cooden Tax Consulting through this process!
A great 90 minutes with Simon learning the intricacies of what can be claimed for R&D. The members of Wilsons Business Support Forum were extremely grateful for all the advice.
Reply from Cooden Tax Consulting: Hi Jim, thanks for the great review, if I'd stuck to the 60 minutes would I have got all 5 stars, or do you like me always leave people with room to aspire for a little more with your ratings? ;-)
Simon presented to Wilson's Business Support Forum today, his delivery and easy to understand explanation really helped us get our heads around the complex and slightly mysterious subject of R&D tax rules. Well humoured and generous with his knowledge and time, every member found him very engaging and it made for a very stimulating meeting. Based on this experience I feel the utmost confidence in his counsel.
Reply from Cooden Tax Consulting: Thanks Gary, I was very surprised at the potential within the group, I certainly wasn't expecting that before meeting with you all. I'm glad you found it useful, but if you'd like to know more, you know where to find me!
Cooden were transparent with their fee structure, helpful and informative throughout the whole process and I feel confident that with their help we maximised our research and development tax relief which for a startup with limited cashflow was imperative to help us grow and reinvest in the business.
Simon is very knowledgeable on all aspects of tax and we will definitely consult him when we need to find an accountant .
He is easy to talk to know and can explain the more complicated areas of tax in an easy to understand way.
Cooden Tax Consulting is a highly professional and accomplished Research & Development Tax Relief specialist accountancy firm.
I have worked with this company for over 3 years and have seen them grow. I can highly recommend them if you are a business in innovation, tech or do any form of Research & Development.
A business that does exactly what it says on the tin!
I thought our chances of a R&D Tax Relief were a little optimistic but Simon from Cooden Tax Consulting was great. In a 1 hour meeting, he understood our business and what we tried (and failed) to do. He told us the process, did all the legwork and the report, submitted it and within days we received a surprisingly large cheque as a first payment with more to follow. It could not be simpler!
I would not hesitate in recommending Cooden Tax Consulting to anyone.
I have recommended Simon to a number of my clients with more complicated R&D needs and he has helped them all to claim significantly enhanced tax relief. Always very friendly and easy to approach and so far excellent results!
Reply from Cooden Tax Consulting: Hi Peter, thanks for the review, and thanks for the continued client referrals, there have been some very interesting businesses.
Simon is a true professional. He managed to explain a number of things in one short phone call that I'd been struggling with for a couple of days. I would totally recommend Simon and Cooden Tax Consulting to any business. Thank you Simon for your help, much appreciated.

I have known Simon for over a year since joining Best of And although I’ve not worked with him for Tax purposes we have worked together on a campaign for Halloween. Simon was my model for a headshot promotion and was fabulous. He is always approachable and we had a fun half an hour in the studio which resulted in a fab scary promo thanks Simon

"I got more than I bargained for" - in a most positive way!
Simon took personal control in helping me reclaim tax enabling my business to make true progress.
We had some glitches BUT he was most honourable in dealing with them in a way that gave him even more credibility. OF COURSE I would recommend Cooden tax consulting.
Simon offer a very professional service and achieved us an excellent result. He and his team know their stuff!
Reply from Cooden Tax Consulting: Thanks for the review Rich, I am really glad we actually met up to discuss your project. It really goes to show the extent to which R&D Tax Relief can be applied to almost any business, it all boils down to what you have done rather than what you are. I'll be in touch shortly, because I would love to use you as a case study.
