“As a start-up company, things are fairly manic, and as part-time FD I inherited a somewhat rough and ready set of accounts. Ann has been a great help in sorting through this and getting some sort of order around things, particularly with regard to our VAT reporting. Her knowledge of the product and ability to help work through some of our issues is impressive.”
“I found it informative, really helpful and of course delivered expertly!”
“The way you [Diane Middleton] presented and the interaction with the group was excellent, it really was a good course to attend.”
Our bookkeeping is complicated because we have three different property entities, each with its own bank account and different ownerships.
Di Middleton handles this situation with efficiency and calmness.
I receive up to date management reports after each visit.
Di Middleton comes into our office two days every month. In a previous business career with a manual bookkeeping system, I had three bookkeepers full time.
The management information was months out of date.
My office is inside the much larger office of Oakwood Corporate Services, who have 19 staff. Di Middleton provides training for the Oakwood bookkeeping staff.
I appreciate Di very much. Di has an efficient, methodical and calming influence. Long may our relationship continue.
COS gives me peace of mind—it is a great service
Karen is proof that knowledge plus enthusiasm will take you a lot further in life than just knowledge. The world is full of hugely knowledgeable folk – but if they communicate this knowledge without the all-important ingredient of enthusiasm, people simply don’t listen. I look forward to getting excited [again] by the subject of bookkeeping!!
“I can’t thank you enough for all of your help over the past couple of months.
You and your team have been beyond amazing.”
