“Claire has saved me a small fortune by changing the accounting system I use. And with this new system I can input a lot of data myself and produce spreadsheets where I can save money etc
All in all Claire has revolutionised how I perceive book-keeping and made understanding my business and legislations a lot easier. I would always recommend CJA Associates because I am extremely confident in Claire’s abilities.”

“Dear Claire,
This is a big thank you for your work with regard to our book keeping requirements. After an initial meeting you sorted in double quick time a system for a novice business owner like me. Which was simple to follow, but at the same time comprehensive enough to provide information to enable us to produce full accounts for our year end.
Along side this you have sorted our PAYE and VAT requirements with minimum fuss and to all the required deadlines in good time.
Altogether I have found Claire a methodical and precise book keeper who is always willing to offer help and advice, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her in the future.
Many thanks ”

“Hi Claire,
I just wanted to put into writing how pleased I am with the level of service I am receiving from CJ Associates Limited. As you know we had been using a larger firm of accountants to previously complete our Payroll and keep our books up to date. I was to say the least, not pleased with both the level of service and cost associated with the amount of work required to complete the bookkeeping for a small business like Kimera.
Not only have you saved Kimera over £150.00 per month, you always answer and return phone calls and you get things done correctly on time first time.
Please keep up the good work. I am more than happy to recommend your services to any new potential clients.
Kind Regards ”

“We have employed the services of CJ Associates for the past three/four years in the capacity of Accountant. Having had bitter experiences of poor accountancy services in the past we were obviously keen not to make the wrong decision twice.
Since employing [CJ Associates] we have found them to be organised, available at all times, willing to help, knowledgable, able to deal with issues and HMRC, able to work to deadlines, a valued external service provider to my organisation and clients.

“Our Company employed Claire [Cowking, CJ Associates partner] in March 2011 to take over the bookkeeping role from the previous bookkeeper.
Since Claire started working with us, she has re-organised the system to make it easier to manage, has helped educate other members of the team to facilitate the running of the department on the days she does not work for us and we have found her to be a valued member of the office with her knowledge of accountancy.”
