Great experience, Cornerstone dealt with my request swiftly. Staff are friendly and responsive. The whole process was very efficient due to the use of online systems for document signing and fee payments. Thank you all for your help.

We sought help from Cornerstone Tax for an SDLT relief - Multiple Dwelling Relief. It is a matter several mortgage advisors and solicitors claimed they had little idea. However, Mr Mehmod Anvarmia from Cornerstone helped us with the matter. Right from the first conversation, he gave us enormous confidence about our case, kept us dutifully informed all through the process, and ensured we successfully claimed the relief sooner and better than we had expected. World-class service by Mehmod and Cornerstone. Thanks again!!
Mehmod at Cornerstone was extremely helpful and patient and knowledgeable, going over things a number of times on the telephone, before providing expert advice in a written document, which has proved invaluable. We would definitely use Cornerstone again in the future, and Mehmod in particular, as he went above and beyond in providing us with tax advice.
I am very grateful to Sam Child for his help. All was done in no time with a brilliant attitude to the client. Cannot praise and recommend him enough.
