What our clients say about Yes Accounting
We've had all sorts of difficulties with two previous sets of accountants who on the face of it looked like decent accountants but in reality were far from it and cutting corners at every stage. This meant our financial reporting was far from what it needed to be. We were completely disillusioned with the accounting profession in general when we met John but I can safely I don't think we could wish for a more dedicated, intelligent and helpful accountant. It is no exaggeration when I say after a month of working with John although he doesn't sit in our office he feels like a full member of our team. As a business John is taking our accounting and the processes around it to the standard of companies ten times the size of ours currently and for that we're eternally grateful to him.
We started working with Yes Accounting when we were looking for a specialist in Magento-Xero integration. John and his team have proved invaluable to our Magento ecommerce site migration, also helping us to research and set up DEAR Systems for inventory management. Thanks to John we now have seamless integration between Magento, DEAR Systems and Xero – no mean feat! – which gives us so much more control over our stock management and accounting processes, and information to drive management decisions.
Yes Accounting always respond to queries quickly and John takes a good deal of time to understand problems and find a solution. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Yes Accounting if you are looking to start working with DEAR or Xero software, or for general accountancy services.
As a manufacturer start-up we have been very happy since we found Yes Accounting. John and his team have delivered an excellent, professional and knowledgeable service and been able to introduce the many features of Xero to our business. We love the simplicity of the system and the reporting. John has helped us complete a round of SEIS Funding and provided advice for us at every possible turn. I can whole heartedly say that Yes Accounting have been an asset to my business and I'm glad I found them. In short, Yes Accounting are more than just an accountant, I'd consider John a friend now.
Yes Accounting has made starting up a Limited Company so much less daunting with their advice and support. John always has time for me and my endless string of questions plus the software they use is extremely efficient and user friendly.
Yes accounting provide more than just book keeping and accounts, John's strategic data driven advice is invaluable to us, allowing us to forecast growth, plan resources more effectively and create a more efficient business.
Hawkwell are new MGA based in Brentwood. Our business model was to make use of modern technology and outsource as many of our back office functions as possible. Yes accounting has achieved this for us at a reasonable cost. I find the whole system easy to use and like the fact that I can look at our financial data at any time and from anywhere where I have access to a computer.
John has always provided a fast and professional solution to our accounting and business planning needs. We would not hesitate in recommending John to any business.
Having switched our Accountants to Yes Accounting I wish I had done it sooner. We now have an accountancy service that truly supports the business at a reasonable monthly fee. John's helpful advice and support with Xero (which we love) means we are always in control of our business finances. John also provides knowledgeable tax advice in a way we can understand it. We can thoroughly recommend Yes Accounting to any one looking for an accountant to support their business.
Yes Accounting have been so helpful in putting together my Self Assessment Tax Return. I had previously used for many years an accountant who charged over four times the fee charged by Yes Accounting and whom provided a quarter of the level of service that I am now receiving. I am so pleased that I jumped ship. The personal service I have received from John Cotter has been exemplary and I would wholeheartedly recommend this company.
We started to work with Yes Accounting in 2010. I have been delighted with the level of service and expertise since outsourcing our Accounting function to Yes Accounting Ltd. Yes Accounting deliver a thoroughly professional service and are always on hand to provide any information. Xero is an excellent Accounting package which enables us to have clear visibility to our Accounts.
I cannot speak too highly of Yes Accounting and their service. Running a small business in the UK and France is not simplicity itself and John Cotter’s support, encouragement and expert advice has been invaluable and, very important to a sole trader, his Fees are very competitive.

John and his team have always helped us whenever required. It has taken a massive burden off our team and allowed us to get on with our business. We are a small business at the moment and have massively appreciated the time and effort put in by Yes, making everything as easy as possible for us to understand.
Yes made my tax returns effortless and proved a highly valuable process resulting in considerable tax rebates. Friendly, fast, effective all at good rates
We were recommended to "Yes Accounting" by a friend and have not been disappointed. Although we had previously done our own tax returns we had bought a rental property and were unsure how some expenditure could be dealt with."Yes Accounting" were friendly, helpful and pragmatic. Just what we wanted.
I left our previous accountant because we were dissatisfied. I have been delighted that we appointed Yes Accounting to handle our Salary / Dividend strategy. Yes Accounting have produced effective and very prompt monthly available profits report, dividend tax certificates, annual accounts, with a very efficient streamlined process. We would have no hesitation in recommending Yes Accounting to other Freelancer IT / Banking professionals because Yes Accounting understand our needs and are always ready with the answers we need.
I started freelancing in 2006 and was a sole trader for several years, as I wanted to keep things as simple as possible. When I first met John, I told him about my approach to the finances of the business, and he explained how I was losing out! He helped me understand all the benefits of trading as a limited company, and offered to prepare an illustration for me. I provided him with my figures over the previous three years operating as a freelancer and he then prepared a simple comparison, showing me just how much I could have saved. It was a no brainer and the decision was made on the spot to start a limited company. He helped me through the process and has been tirelessly patient in helping me through every aspect of running the business. Xero makes invoicing so much easier too. 'Yes Accounting' is no faceless firm. They get to know their clients on a personal level, and are always there when needed.
