Cooper Parry Appointed as Service Charge Auditors

We have appointed Cooper Parry accountants to review and deliver the certification of our client Service Charge Portfolio as part of our Best Practise Approach.

Cooper Parry have over 150 years of heritage originating in the Midlands, and recently opening a new workspace office in London. They specialise in Service Charge Consultancy but have also seen strong growth in core accountancy and tax services, including Corporate Finance, IT Solutions, and Wealth Management. Their range of services will compliment both our existing and future client portfolio, whilst providing us with support and guidance across all areas of Property Finance. Streamlining our approach will improve efficiencies and free up more time to focus on client service and customer experience.

This approach also enhances our compliance with the RICS Service Charge Code and the new rules which came into effect on 1st April 2019.

Gemma Edwards, Director at Cooper Parry says

“I’m so excited to be working alongside Sarah, Andy and the rest of the team. Like us, Tandem are looking to break the mould and disrupt the market which is so refreshing. Their energy and drive is infectious, and it’s exactly what we’re about at Cooper Parry.

We see ourselves as an extension to their Service Charge function rather than an external consultant, and I’m confident our Snapshot software will transform their property management offering. We’ll also be providing insights and advice on their internal operational performances, and we’ll be helping out with risk analysis.

There’s nothing more rewarding than working alongside clients who have a similar vision and values to ours. I’m sure this is going to be the start of a fantastic, longstanding relationship, and hopefully a sign of things to come now that we’re in London.

Sarah Holmes, Associate Partner at Tandem adds

“We’re delighted to be working with Cooper Parry as our Service Charge consultants. They have a wealth of experience in the industry, coupled with a fantastic culture and a drive to be the best.

Their disruptive nature and ambition to be different makes them an inspiration to work alongside and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them to the wider Tandem team.

The Cooper Parry approach is well aligned to that of Tandem, using smart people with smart technology, something we are looking to embrace in all aspects of our service delivery. We believe Cooper Parry’s Snapshot software will streamline the existing Tandem controls and processes, putting us in an excellent position to take on and manage significant and complex property portfolios with ease and efficiency as we grow.”
