“Tulipland Potatoes, is a family business, based in Moulton Chapel, near Spalding and is one of the UK’s leading independent potato washing, grading and packing specialists.
“We have entrusted our accounting needs to Moore Thompson for many years and, when I called in to see Partner, Heather Bright, to sign off the annual accounts, I happened to mention in passing that we were thinking of purchasing some new equipment.
“She immediately referred me to the firm’s grants team who not only identified funding but helped me put together all the relevant documentation required, including an up to date business plan, project plan, directors’ CVs and cash flow forecasts.
“I am delighted to say we were successful in securing a grant offer – all thanks to the team at Moore Thompson who provided a prompt, efficient and supportive service; going beyond the call of duty!”
Managing Director, Tulipland Potatoes
“We were contacted by Moore Thompson’s Grant Services team back in March 2017 with information about possible funding opportunities to support our plans for growth. At the time, we weren’t quite ready to go ahead. However, Janet Brown kept in regular touch with us to ensure that we were kept abreast with funding opportunities.
In September 2017, Janet advised us of a funding stream that could support the purchase of equipment we were considering. Her expertise and speedy service ensured the application was developed and submitted, along with all the supporting information in less than a week, resulting in a grant offer one week later. I would highly recommend them.”
“Having called into Moore Thompson’s office to sign off my annual accounts, I ended up in conversation with Partner, Heather Bright.
I mentioned to her that our company might need to change our heating system and Heather asked me if I had considered looking into the availability of potential grants to help me fund this.
Grant Services Manager, Janet Brown, got in touch with me and was able to advise me that there was, indeed, a suitable scheme.
This has resulted in a grant-funded energy review of our premises and the opportunity to apply for funding to support any measures we wish to implement.
Had Heather not been so proactive in first mentioning the possibility of grant funding, I would never have known about this potential opportunity.
I am very pleased with the service I have received from everyone at Moore Thompson and, in particular, Heather and Janet’s expertise and support.”

Moore Thompson have been our Accountants, Auditors and Advisors for over 20 years. Not only do they provide the normal accountancy services but they have provided us with specialist tax advice, business valuations and due diligence for the purpose of acquisitions. They also process our payroll and fulfil our Company Secretarial requirements. The staff and partners are always available to provide support and advice when required and they have frequent topical seminars to help their clients keep abreast of changes and opportunities in related fields.
Late in 2016 we discussed our plans for expansion and business development with one of the partners and were referred to Janet Brown at their new Grant & Funding Service. Within a matter of weeks we had received formal approval of funding and subsequently received a loan and a grant to invest in the project.
We couldn’t have been more impressed with the grant services provided by Moore Thompson. Janet was very knowledgeable, confident and helpful, such that we always felt we were in capable hands. We would not have obtained the grant offer, or that particular source of funding, if it wasn’t for Moore Thompsons foresight in setting up this new service for their clients. Janet also helped greatly in the application process and was supportive throughout. The speed with which it happened was impressive!
Moore Thompsons strong emphasis on teamwork reverberates throughout their operation allowing clients to receive a holistic and seamless service. We would not hesitate to recommend them as partners to any other business.
