Listen to our clients
“We have been working with Carpenter Box for fifteen years, having previously been engaged with one of the ‘top 10’ firms. Our decision to change paid off and we have been consistently delighted with the range and level of service provided. We know we can tap into Carpenter Box for anything and their experience and knowledge within the Construction and Real Estate sector has been of real value. One of the most rewarding aspects of our relationship with Carpenter Box is that we have shared in its growth, and the development of its individuals, many of whom we have got to know, and who we treat as key partners to our business. This consistency in the service team is, to us, a vital component of the corporate relationship, and is essential for the success of our business.”

“Carpenter Box provide us with a complete service. They look after everything from audit and payroll to sorting out our pension schemes and personal tax planning. We really value the range and depth of expertise that they have under one roof, because property and construction can be a complex industry, but the team have excellent knowledge of the sector. By providing us with projected cash flows and budgets for all of our projects, it means I can see where projects are in financial terms, not just physically, which is essential for the success of our business.”
