Cooper Parry (CP) is one of the fastest-growing, culturally driven and rebellious firms of accountants and business advisers in the UK. Their multi-award-winning teams support like-minded entrepreneurial businesses across the UK and overseas, covering the spectrum of Audit, Tax, Innovation, Tech & High Growth, Outsourced Finance Services, Corporate Finance and Wealth Management. With origins dating back to 1850, CP have been dubbed “the rebels of accountancy” after the new generation of Partners dramatically overhauled the firm’s strategy and brand to reflect a bolder, more innovative, culture-centric approach to professional services 20 years ago. Today, CP’s purpose is to “Disrupt, Lead and Make Life Count” – for their people, their clients, their local communities, and our planet. The firm has clocked up 6 consecutive years in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list, as well as being named the #1 Accountancy Firm to Work For in the UK, with Glassdoor and NPS scores that consistently out-perform peers as ‘best in class.’
