Tech & High Growth

SUPPORTING START-UPS

The Tech & High Growth Start-up team work directly with entrepreneurs, supporting them in meeting their compliance obligations and preparing for scale.

Doing what the small firms can’t and the big firms won’t

The Tech & High Growth Start-up team exist to help venture backed companies fulfil their potential and scale when the time is right. We are a bridge to the venture capitalist ecosystem and recognise that the best early stage businesses, are only early stage for so long.

So, whilst our specialist team are focussed on ensuring your reporting and compliance ticks all the right boxes, they’re also working with you to understand your plans for scale and how we can make that happen for you and your business.

Our start-up team are one with the scale-up team. With expertise across all service lines, working exclusively with businesses in the high growth ecosystem.

Taking businesses from seed to series c, to unicorn and beyond – we don’t tap out when your accounting and advisory needs change. Delivering advice at speed without the red tape.

You can see how this holistic approach comes together below…

It’s not if you grow, it’s when…

When you’re in the thick of growing a dynamic business you want to work with a team that can match your pace and perseverance. What you don’t need is changing faces or worse, no real people at all.

Advisory, accounting, VAT, payroll, bookkeeping, software, subscriptions and strategic finance – we can do it, so can every other start-up firm, right?

We actively work to ensure you don’t need to be with an early stage accountant forever, we want you to graduate to a scale-up requirement. Now not every other firm is saying that, are they?

Whether it’s helping you build internal finance functions or introducing you to VCs for your next round of funding, we take the proactive route to scale, for every client we work with.

Educate and elevate

Long standing relationships with the key players in the ecosystem are integral to what we can bring to the table for founders and their businesses. From VCs to other professional service offerings, accelerator programmes and beyond.

It’s all about partnering with the people that matter, to deliver content and support in accessible ways. We’re big believers in paying it forward and share our insight as far and wide as we can. We love this ecosystem and care about its ability to thrive – anything we can do help that is a big yes from us.

Founders Forum, Foundrs, London Technology Club, HSBC Innovation banking – just some of the names we partner with.

Often these partnerships and our content focus on shared challenges, from share options to getting ready for diligence. Think of it as an all-access pass to topics you’ll want to consider as you grow.

Can we meet in the middle?

If you’ve got this far and maybe checked out our Scale-up team, you might be thinking you land somewhere in the middle of all this. Your business is of the ground, you’re building a killer team and a customer base to envy but you’re not quite ready for audit services…

We got you.

Here’s where our strategic finance offering comes in. Head of Early Stage, Asif Ahmed and Head of THG, Steve Leith unpack how we can help when your transitioning from start-up to scale-up services…

REVIEWS

PAUL, JAN 2024

“Excellent service for our first year audit.”

DAVID, JAN 2024

“R&D Claim: The results were better than expected. The additional cash will enable us to increase profitability”

ALAN, JAN 2024

“R&D Claim: The results were not as good as previous years. The additional cash will allow us to further invest in our R&D program.”

STUART, JAN 2024

“Great to have a personal relationship with the whole team. Always willing to help. Sometimes a little slow to respond on some issues (but then again so are we). Audit team are brilliant, bar audits far to long now owing to the amount of sample data we have to provide, which is hard when you have a small team and limited time.”

CLAIRE, JAN 2024

“Great team, and much improved communication and pro-active engagement over the past three months.”

MARK, DEC 2023

ROB, DEC 2023

“R&D Claim: Having worked with the R&D team at CP for a few years now, I had a good idea what to expect. As per usual they exceeded our expectations. The additional cash will allow us to invest in our fleet.”

RICHARD, DEC 2023

“Excellent service. Need to ensure pricing is competitive.”

DAVID, OCT 2023

“Good insights provided. Nice team to deal with. Need more consistency of team members and where this is not possible a better handover should be provided to new members. Need strong manager oversight on all audits, in particular where there are complex transactions etc. Improved communication between audit team and finance functions within the business.”

LUCIA, JUN 2023

“Final Packs are taking too long, communication”
