“At Current Electrical Installations, customer service is something we pride ourselves highly on, and it was no surprise to me that CJ Bookkeeping worked exactly the same.

It’s often said that people buy from people, and since joining BNI approximately 2 years ago, I knew almost immediately that you were someone that I wanted to work with. Your positive, but no-nonsense approach is very similar to mine, and I am extremely impressed with the way you tailored your working package to suit my business with exactly what I wanted to do.

Nothing has been any trouble so far, as I’ve altered the services I’ve required from CJ Bookkeeping already. I know that you are only a phone call away, and always happy to help – or at least it comes across that way.

I’ve no doubt that you and your team with help me grow my business and I have total trust and appreciation that I am in the right care to do that successfully. Your advice is second to none and it has been a pleasure using your services.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience with my business, and I look forward to a successful future continuing working together.”

“Following a change of Accountants, I needed to find a new Payroll services provider for my other business, Corks & Canapes. We had a brief chat, exchanged a few emails and you were on the case! Liaising with my old Accountant and Payroll provider; communicating with HMRC and sourcing all the information you needed in order to take over the work.

In addition, I also asked you to set up payroll for my first employee at the Loyd Lindsay Rooms. Both requests were dealt with in a timely and efficient manner and the transfer from my old provider to CJ Bookkeeping was seamless.

Throughout the above processes, I have found you to be very professional and thorough in gaining a full understanding of my requirements. The transition to CJ Bookkeeping was seamless and easy and I would have no hesitation recommending you to any of my family, friends or business colleagues.

Thank you for making my life so easy!”

MK Mortgages

“As a professional mortgage adviser I spend most days asking clients to make sure that they ‘know their numbers’ and to be on top of their finances, which isn’t always an easy thing in these busy times.

Over the last few years my business has grown and now includes members of staff that are paid on a monthly basis. I can honestly say that I would never have the time to try and do this myself, so having you and your team behind me is a massive relief.

With so many rules and regulations in place it can be very easy to find yourself in trouble with HMRC, but you are always on top of the latest changes and inform me of what I need to do.

Every month our payslips, National insurance and pension information comes over and I simply make the transfers, its such an easy process.

I don’t hesitate to recommend your services to my clients that are in need of a professional and efficient book keeper.

I can’t thank you enough for everything that you do for me.”


“We originally appointed CJ Bookkeeping in 2011 to carry out bookkeeping services for Cherwell and very quickly they became a central part of our team. As our business continued to grow Clare and her team willingly took on additional responsibilities to support our changing needs. Not only are CJ Bookkeeping extremely efficient and professional, we also find them to be very flexible and progressive.”


“We have been very happy with CJ Bookkeeping’s service. She is very professional and always ensures that the monthly payroll and bookwork is completed in plenty of time. As a new business, we have been grateful for Clare’s help and advice, particularly when we were looking to become VAT registered. We would definitely recommend Clare to other businesses.”


“Having worked with you since the beginning of the financial year in April this year, you have always been accessible and understanding whenever I have had a query. You have been proactive in suggesting ways to help monitor our costs and immensely patient when explaining the peculiarities of our accounting system in non-accounting terms that even I can understand.

You are definitely bringing our business into focus and providing the management information we need to help us make better decisions and build a better business. I would not hesitate to recommend you and your team.”


“Clare came along at a time when I was snowed under with work and had little time to look at paperwork, especially my accounts. With great speed and efficiency, all my accounts were organised and brought up to date. Her continued support and advice gives me peace of mind and allows me to focus on my continued business success.”

“I have been meaning to write to you for some time now. It is my pleasure to write this letter to thank you for your excellent and extremely valuable service.

I can honestly say, that whilst you run your own business, my team and I view you as an intrinsic part of The Fletcher Group — at least to say ‘one of the family’.

1 strongly believe having you on board as part of my team has helped me ‘confidently’ growth my business and puts me on a strong footing going forward. It does beg the question how big and/ or successful my business could have been if I had taken you on earlier?

However, you are on board now and it only leaves me to say keep the good work up and again THANK YOU.”

Action Coach

“Firstly I owe you an apology that I have taken so long to write this testimonial!

In what I do for a living “trust” plays such a key part, my clients trust my judgement so when I introduce them to a new supplier not surprisingly they have high expectations. Your

experience, knowledge, professionalism and positive attitude make it so easy to refer you. Over the past 4 years the numerous business owners I have introduced you to, have all been delighted and thanked me enthusiastically as they start to understand and use their “financials” to make real decisions in their company’s!

So if you ever need someone to endorse you and your company’s services please do not hesitate to ask me as it will be a pleasure to tell them how good you are!”

J.Priest & Son

“From the beginning you have guided me, starting with the original business, and then consequently the new, and I have to say I feel more than looked after, protected and cared about as a client. This service has got me walking tall and looking extremely professional when it comes to accountancy terms.

We changed to Xero and I haven’t looked back, my VAT is now running up to date and transparent thanks to Clare’s persistence, and patience.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending a business or any size to Clare and have to say this service goes beyond office hours, even on Sunday’s I’ve had calls of help. Thankfully we can now both have our weekends off, well I know I can anyway!

Really appreciate everything you have done for me.”

LISA ADNITT Serendipity Brides

“I have used CJ Bookkeeping for the last year and she is very thorough, efficient and also very easy to communicate with. This has made the running of my business a lot easier and I would definitely recommend her to others.”


“I came across Clare via Facebook after she popped up on the Village Facebook group, I was soon booked into a full consultation so she could fully understand me and my business. A full set of terms and conditions were provided outlining what she was going to deliver and what she needed from me in return.

Until I hired Clare from CJ Bookkeeping, I had never been given monthly reports, P&L or support from my previous bookkeepers or a set of terms and conditions, and someone who turned up for their meetings with me. Clare has had a right mess to sort out and is getting to grips with everything, proof that she is true to her strapline of ‘bringing your business into focus’.

Clare and her team are extremely professional, efficient, knowledgeable and supportive. I am pleased that after some bad experiences, I have finally found my forever bookkeeper. I would highly recommend CJ Bookkeeping.”


“Having decided last year to change my accountant, I also decided that a change of bookkeeper was in order. As with my previous accountant, I’d rarely seen my bookkeeper – in fact I’d never even met them.

Clare seemed an obvious choice after meeting her. Straight away I felt like I knew my bookkeeper – Clare is very clear on what she offers and how much her services cost. Clare is friendly, professional and gets the job done. As Tonicbox grows I feel confident that there are other elements of the business that Clare and her team can take care of for me, and I wouldn’t give a second thought to asking CJ Bookkeeping to do more for me.”

I cannot recommend Clare enough, and I urge anyone who feels they’re not getting enough from their current bookkeeper to speak with her as soon as possible!

Clare and her team are extremely professional, efficient, knowledgeable and supportive. I am pleased that after some bad experiences, I have finally found my forever bookkeeper. I would highly recommend CJ Bookkeeping.”
