From our clients ………
"We have been using CES as part of our school's financial systems for a number of years now. Working with Stephen we have found CES to provide quick and useful advice on financial processing issues, quick and smooth payment of invoices on time and a smooth process through the audit trail each year. With Xero as our shared platform, we are able to monitor and process all financial issues effectively and transparently. The added benefit of having CES as a partner is the informed discussions around developing our budgets and systems year on year to ensure we have robust processes that keep everyone safe."

I have worked with CES as our school accountancy firm for 8 years. They have provided consistent and current service to our school Board of Trustees. Murray Gordon as our accountant has always made himself available for discussions/ queries, to take instructions, or to meet for budget formulation. The systems used are efficient and cover a wide range of services: Investment banking, monthly account payments and provision of monthly financial statements, preparation of annual accounts etc. for audit. I would recommend CES as an accounting company who are efficient and who always endeavour to meet all the clients financial requirements.

“We enjoy a very positive relationship with the team at CES. Their support and guidance is provided in a friendly way and they are always happy to help with our enquiries. The monthly accounts and accompanying analyses and reports are produced on time each month and are useful for our admin, leadership and Trustee teams.”

"I have worked with CES in five different schools, with five different ways of running finances and with different budgets. I have always been impressed with the way CES are willing to work with the school and understand the context or special character of the school. Finances are always a concern for Boards and knowing that we can question, get advice on budgets, investments and explanations around variances is very useful. CES have always been willing to work with us to improve the financial running of the school."
Brian Price, Principal
"Fernside School has used CES as our financial support for over a decade. Despite the advances in “on-line” tools to manage our own finances we have continued to use the professional support from CES staff to ensure we are maximising our financial capability. We have always been impressed with the quality of their service and the willingness of all staff to work with and for us."
David Taylor, Principal
"I introduced CES into my last school to provide financial expertise that we needed. The high quality of professional support that we received was impressive. When I moved school’s I was delighted to see that CES was providing the financial support to my new school. CES takes the worry out of an area that can create stress for Boards and school management. I highly recommend them to other schools."
