Kilpatrick PR, London based and top brand communicator in the Beauty Industry, is AFP’s longest standing client. We partnered with them in 2002 and have grown together over the past 14 years. During this time their turnover has more than quadrupled, and we have continued to have a very strong partnership.
KPR came to AFP because they wanted a professional finance department without the cost and hassle of recruiting and managing a finance team. We were glad to be able to step in and take this challenge away from them. Since we started working with KPR, we have made sure to keep up to date and accurate books, and have also developed management reports and budgets specifically to meet their requirements. The main monthly management report has been reviewed by us, and modified for the management meetings. We now present a one-page report to team, which suits their needs.
We have worked hard to seamlessly integrate ourselves into their company, acting as both their finance and admin departments. This allows the Kilpatrick PR team to focus on what they do best- getting the best coverage nailed down for the top beauty brands around, the results of this have so far included:
- Reducing their tax bill in first year of partnership by £14k by allocating recharged expenses correctly.
- Helped Kilpatrick PR quadruple their turnover since 2002.
- Developed a seamless and fully integrated partnership which is going strong after 14 years!
The Public Relations industry can be a tough nut to crack, but KPR are still at the top of their game after 19 years in the business, and we make sure to keep them supported with well organised books, up to date financial reporting and make sure everything is prompt and on time.
