“This neat system enables a claim to be pulled together without technical jargon.”
“We were really pleased with the results and even introduced our accountant to the software.”
“I’m glad we found WhisperClaims – we were able to compile each of our last two claims inside an hour for a fixed fee.”
“Utilising the WhisperClaims platform, I was able to assemble a full claim in under 45 minutes! The system produced a full written report and eligible costs that our accountant was able to submit with our Corporation Tax return. We got our repayment back within ten days of submission.
