We started using Cowhie Management Services (CMS) in 1996. Paul and Aoife provide us with monthly management accounts, which we couldn’t do without, weekly payroll which we find invaluable and all Revenue returns e.g. VAT & P30’s are taken care of. The management accounts give us detailed information about our business. We know exactly how our business is performing, department by department. We can address any problems that occur immediately. We have information that allows us to negotiate better deals with suppliers, which allows our margins to improve. We have total peace of mind knowing that Cowhie Management Services offer a professional personal service.

To run a small business without monthly management accounts is akin to steering a ship without a rudder!
Some 20 years ago I was lucky enough to meet Paul Cowhie. Our company had just been audited by Inland Revenue and because of a lack of information had suffered a heavy Revenue bill.
Within 2 months Paul had set us up with a proper financial system and controls, with monthly management accounts which truly reflected the company's financial position, Daily refining of our financial control systems by Paul and Aoife keeps out business on track. This has enabled us to plan in a positive way for the future.

CMS have worked with us for the last 4 years. They have helped us greatly in setting up our new restaurant business, the Donkey Shed. They have guided us, and advised us very well. No questions we have had, have been too hard for them to answer. They have explained to us all about how to keep stock sheets monthly. We keep monthly accounts, which enables us to see how our business is going from month to month.
This means we have no surprises at the end of the year. It keeps a tight rein on our spending and of course our sales. My husband is very impressed with the whole set up of CMS. He says it’s like having a torchlight keeping an eye on our business. I sometimes have a lot of questions and they answer me in simple English.
They don’t bombard me with stuff I don’t understand. They always return my calls and are most helpful at all times
We have outsourced our management accounts to CMS since 2006. The systems and methods employed by CMS help us keep our finger on the financial pulse of the business. Their personalised business provides a snapshot of our business, allowing us to make informed decisions when they need to be made, not 3 to 6 months later which is commonplace with most accounting practices.
CMS consistently deliver high quality service and I am pleased to recommend them whenever the opportunity arises

Paul and Aoife have been looking after our business since 2002. They have been a massive help to the running and control of our administration and finances. Their attention to detail is second to
none and they genuinely care about every last figure that may affect the business, in either a
positive or negative way. They have completely taken the burden off our shoulders with regards
to wages and revenue (VAT etc.) and as a result our books are immaculate.

Being in business for the first time can be daunting, CMS helped us to get on our feet and explained our accounts in language we understood, allowing us to focus on the creativity of our business. They helped us to avoid many pitfalls we nearly found ourselves in, so we can look to the future growth of our business with confidence. Thank you Paul and Aoife
