"Ling Phipp have been my accountants, advisors and friends'since I first became self employed back in 1998. They have guided me through the minefields of sole trader and Ltd Company, helped with tax advice, and provided 'idiot proof' form-filling assistance.
Their expertise in the needs of media professionals is exceptional. They are never too busy to listen and are endlessly patient with late and missing paperwork. I would recommend their services to anyone in the media world - and beyond."
Clare Tomlinson, Sky Sports.

"We have found the support offered by Ling Phipp, and in particular by partner Diane Lockwood, to be invaluable during our first years of operation and since gaining charity status in 2007.
As business manager of Cultivate, I have worked closely with Diane over the last few years through our annual audit and production of year end accounts which have always been completed in agreed timescales. I have enjoyed working with Diane who is very supportive and always willing to answer any queries and offer advice – particularly in more complex areas such as VAT and in looking into new charity software packages. Diane has also regularly attended our Annual General Meetings and her attendance and participation has been appreciated by our Board of Trustees."
Keren Brammam, Cultivate.
"As manager of Erewash Citizens Advice Bureau, I have worked with Diane Lockwood of Ling Phipp on the preparation of two sets of annual accounts, one of which was independently examined, the other subject to full audit.
I have found Ling Phipp to be both professional and pragmatic and, as the manager of a relatively small organisation, I have found their guidance and advice invaluable. They take a proactive approach to ensuring that clients meet their statutory obligations and they understand the requirements of the charity sector.
In my experience, all Ling Phipp staff have been pleasant and helpful and we have consistently met our target dates even when matters were complicated by a change of system coupled with a first full audit, My experience of dealing with Ling Phipp has been positive overall and I have never encountered any problems in my dealings with them."
Sara Lagoe, Derbyshire Dales, Amber Valley & Erewash Citizens Advice Bureau.
"Ling Phipp have been flexible in agreeing dates to meet, completion of work within timeframes set by our organisation and working with new Trustees when necessary. Work has always been completed within target dates agreed.
I have found the staff of Ling Phipp friendly and approachable whilst being fair, thorough and challenging when necessary. I have always felt able to ask questions (even if naive at times) and have appreciated the practical guidance and advice offered. "
Trish Eaton, Nottingham & District Citizens Advice Bureau.
