“Clare and the team proactively make suggestions for how our financial systems can work better.”

Gordon Smith, Director Dotwise Digital Marketing


“We have worked with Clare for 4 years. She has a unique ability to identify and solve problems and has been instrumental in streamlining our accounts and bookkeeping departments.

CEM always place the welfare of the companies they work with above all else. The responsiveness of the team in supporting our needs is second to none and CEM has evolved with us giving us more and more assistance as our business has grown.

CEM are always available for advice and assistance and their patience – not to mention their great customer relations skills – make them an ideal partner company to work with.”

“We need to be professional in all we do, and Clare has ensured we stay fully on top of all our financial reporting and statutory returns. As a responsible employer, we want to make sure our payroll and pensions are managed accurately both for ourselves and our staff, and we can trust Clare to get this all done for us in a timely manner.

As a social enterprise we have to be as efficient as possible, and Clare has been able to help us use automated interfaces and processes to good effect. Plus … she is personally great to work with and it’s wonderful to have her as part of the Community Motors team.”

“We’ve found CEM’s service fantastic. Clare and the team proactively make suggestions for how our financial systems can work better. The monthly management accounts are an invaluable source of data to allow us to plan and manage cash flow. Overall the service saves us time and money and we’d recommend CEM to anybody.”

“We have been working with Clare for over a year and she has simply transformed the way we work. She takes time to explain everything to clients like myself who have no idea about accounts and tax.

Clare is always helpful and gives fantastic advice. She is highly organised, efficient and methodical, which makes working with her a pleasure.

I have recommended Clare and her team to several companies who now use CEM”

“CEM has provided excellent support to three of my businesses over the past five years. I’m not sure how, but Clare seems to quickly understand the workings of each business and gets on with her job allowing me to do mine. The service is efficient, responsive, personal and cost-effective – just what I need.”

“We are so pleased that CEM do our books. Clare provides quarterly management accounts that enable us to monitor income and expenses and assess our strengths and weaknesses, as well as doing our various returns for Companies House and HMRC. It’s invaluable and frees up more time for us to focus on our business creating non-fiction books.”

“Clare was instrumental in helping us set up Xero Accounting for Holland Hahn & Wills. Her support was excellent, and we haven’t looked back since! A great service.”

“We feel extremely fortunate to have met Clare. She has such a good understanding of our business, the direction we are heading and the twists, turns and bumps we encounter along the way.

Clare is very much part of our team and has our back when it comes to the business finances. She is very much on our side.

We have total confidence and trust in Clare, and it is reassuring to know that when it comes to HMRC compliance, VAT, PAYE, bookkeeping, payroll, management accounts and end of year we are in very safe hands.

It allows us to focus on what we do best which is manage and grow our business.

It’s great teamwork and thank you Clare.”

“Clare has been a tower of strength looking after the financial health of our businesses and helping us to build value. It is important to have someone on the inside with a focus on finance and accounting. It’s not about accountancy as a service, it’s about having an in-house finance director.”

“I always dreaded doing my books and had to work on them at weekends. Clare immediately took away all of that bookkeeping stress. She enabled me to focus on what I’m good at – helping my clients. And she’s allowed me to enjoy my whole weekend. Clare is a true professional, gives excellent customer service and I would recommend her bookkeeping services to everyone.”

“I engaged with CEM Bookkeeping just under a year ago now after many years of toiling between various accountants and bookkeepers. All I was looking was for someone who was at the end of the phone to answer my questions (there weren’t many) and ensure my bookkeeping was all inline for VAT returns. Clare delivered this in bundles and very quickly I was confident in allowing Clare to manage all my accounting needs for my rapidly growing business. I have full confidence now that my numbers are precise on a daily basis. We have also put in processes that has allowed for increased transparency in profits and tax due, which in turn has aided the business growth.Clare also looks after personal tax for myself and my wife. I would thoroughly recommend CEM and am so glad I found Clare.”
