What Our Clients Say


Richard Greaves from Rack & Shelf Labels says:

“The success we have had is all based on setting up Rack and Shelf Labels correctly from the start. At the beginning, Robins & Co provided VAT and payroll for us; we just handed over the receipts. By the end of the first year we had one employee, now we have eight in the UK, including a qualified bookkeeper who has grown with the company. If we need advice on anything more than day-to-day work, we talk to Andrew Robins. He’s always available to discuss our company accounts with us and we ask him to look at pretty much anything we are thinking about doing to see if it’s feasible”.

“We are based in Warrington, Stafford and Northampton, and I travel all around the country. It’s great to have someone I can just pop in and talk to.”

Since 2014, Dale Church (the other director) has been based in Melbourne, Australia. Richard explains: “One of our contacts in Australia said they couldn’t find anyone to do what we do over there. It led to a really significant contract and that’s when we started to think about an Australian office. There are a number of requirements to enter Australia and Andrew helped Dale with his visa and the move. That part of the business is working really well - we design and manufacture in the UK then ship the products and send over our own installation teams, which is cost-effective. Each year we have been stable or growing in the UK and now in Australia too”.

“This year is our biggest ever for growth. Brexit hasn’t affected us; in fact it’s a challenge to keep up. We don’t see any reason to change our arrangements as we grow”.

“Andrew introduced us to Xero, so we have a really flexible way of working that will continue to meet our needs. We bought into it straight away because we needed all our information to be consolidated and we especially liked its structured approach to access and monitoring. Because Xero is in the Cloud I can see real time information from anywhere - even Australia - and we can give other members of the team access to the all the information they need.”


Adam Wellesley from Horts Estate Agents says:

“We have worked with Andrew Robins since we first set up our own business. We started with our end of year accounts and then took on bookkeeping and payroll services too. Our turnover has grown from £200,000 to £2 million, but the standard of service isn’t affected by the size of our business - we have always received excellent advice and support".

"Now we particularly benefit from the management information we can access through Xero. We can use it to send invoices straight to clients and to have a real-time view of receipts and payments. Our accounts are regularly reconciled so our cash flow information is always up to date and our decisions are can be based on the most current information".

"One of the great benefits of working with Robins & Co was the support we received when we changed our business model. They gave us great advice and the team liaised with the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on our behalf, which really helped us. Like many other businesses, we had a random payroll compliance check with HMRC some years ago. This can be a worrying and time-consuming experience, but the team were with us all the way. Their expertise and advice was invaluable, and the whole process was completed very professionally. When we moved into the property letting market we knew that we would have to meet the very detailed requirements of the Association of Residential Letting Agents, so we looked to Robins & Co for support here too. They work with us on reporting client accounts including deposits, rental and any other payments. They also make sure we have everything in place to protect our clients’ money.”


Charles Bennett of Hanslope Wines says: 

Robins & Co are thoroughly efficient and generously helpful. I cannot think of a single matter that has not been dealt with immedialtely and professionally over the years I have used their services. I cannot rate them highly enough.


Rob Parker of Momentum Consulting UK Limited says:

“Robins & Co have given me excellent advice since I started my business over two years ago. I have always known exactly what to term as tax bills, and they have helped me make the right decisions for my business.”


Wendy of TAA UK Ltd says:
“Robins & Co were recommended by my bank manager and have proved him to be right. They are honest, transparent and genuine, and worth every penny. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to run their business properly.”


Ian of Path Recruitment  Ltd says:
“I have used Andrew and the team at Robins and co, since I established my business in 2001. In this time I have had many issues to overcome and required advice and direction at times, which has always been available to me, even out of hours. I have seen the team grow rapidly over the last few years and somehow they have managed to adopt an approachable yet friendly culture, which I haven’t experienced before in other accountancy practices. I have referred many associates to the company over the years, as I have found not only is the service second to none, but the staff are always available and knowledgeable without me having to go to the top. They provide me with a one stop shop with all my accounting, tax, profit & loss, Vat, credit control and payroll affairs. The advice, professionalism, accessibility and affordability for me has always been key for me and my business, and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking for a new start up or a change.”
