Client Testimonials

An excellent improvement

We have transferred our accounts to Jane Cathcart & Associates, as we were looking for a full book keeping, payroll service, and critical tracking and feedback on our performance. I am now able to focus on running and growing the business, knowing that our huge amount of paperwork, accounts and KPI's are under proper professional control, all of which helps provide a very solid foundation for Il Valentino's business.

Expertise & services of Jane Cathcart & Associates invaluable

We find the expertise & services of Jane Cathcart & Associates invaluable to the running of our business. They take all the guesswork out of the equation - take all the headache out of the paperwork & leave us free to do what we are good at- working in the business. Jane helps us run a very tight ship & takes a vested interest in our business. For us they do all our payroll, accounts & payments- if we take holidays everything runs as normal. It is a welcome relief to work with Jane & her team knowing they are watching the figures while we watch the customers. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone

Best to deal with the day to day running of the business

I, Paul Foley, and business partner Brian Walsh have spent the past five and half years working with Jane and her team at Jane Cathcart & Associates. They have been responsible for all of our payroll needs, PAYE and VAT returns, monthly breakdown of costs and margin performance. We have found their expertise and professionalism to be invaluable in helping us to achieve optimum monthly margins. It is vital in the restaurant business to accurately scrutinize and monitor costs and margins and we have the upmost confident that Jane Cathcart & Associates can undertake this role while we deal with the day to day running of the business. We would highly recommend Jane and her team, in particular to those in the hospitality sector

Excellent service and advice

We have been working with Jane and her experienced team for over eighteen years and have found their expertise, attention to detail and service to be second to none. As well as providing the usual services such as payroll, invoicing and bookkeeping, they are up to date with all accounting systems and up to speed with any new trends, grants or revenue changes. As they look after many hospitality businesses, they can recommend best suppliers and work with them to secure best prices. They keep us focused on growing our business rather than getting us bogged down in paperwork and we are like a business family where they take our ups and downs personally. I have been very happy working with Jane all these years and will continue to do so.
