CJP Testimonials

CJP Accounting Solutions - Reference from RFC Ambrian

We were introduced via Sage to CJP Accounting Solutions, an Accredited Platinum Sage Business Partner, when RFC Group acquired the Ambrian Partners business.

RFC  Group  is  an  Australian  company  and  we  therefore  needed  to  integrate  the  UK accounting  system  with theirs. Sage  50 Accounts  was  chosen  as  it is the  most compatible with the MYOB system used in Australia.

CJP Accounting Solutions has done the following for us:

Set up Sage 50 Accounts Professional and transferred our previous accounting data with effect from January 2012,Redesigned the Chart of Accounts layout to be compatible with Australia's structure and Set up Sage Payroll Professional.

CJP set-up Sage on one of their own terminal hosted server so that we can log into Sage from anywhere, which has proved to be fast and invaluable. Provided on-site ad-hoc training to Josie Kelly, the UK Accounts Administrator, on various aspects of Sage, including projects and budgets. Overseen the complex year-end process  as our  year-end changed from December to June . Been available for one-off accounting questions and been able to log-in remotely and deal with things for us, outside of hours

We are so pleased with CJP Accounting Solutions that we have retained their services to oversee our Quarterly VAT Returns and Payroll Year-End going forward.

Josie Kelly
Head of Accounts and HR Administration

Work brief: Provided support and advice to Normura's finance team who needed assistance with setting up Sage 50 Accounts Professional themselves. On-site training was also provided as required as well as designing and setting up complex reports for Sage Excel Integration to mirror their reporting requirements.

I am grateful that you managed to create our reporting format upon our request which was very important to our business management. We really appreciate the warm support that you provided with great knowledge of Sage 50 products.

Craig Waldron, Finance Director at Ugo Foods Group Ltd

I was very pleased with the way the upgrade went and the support that we received.  Even more pleasing was dealing with yourself and the support, guidance and great value that you gave us.  I very much appreciated your responsiveness, flexibility and high level of customer service and was very impressed by the way you actively sorted out a way of saving us costs while providing us with a high quality solution to our needs.  I will have no hesitation in using your services again or in referring you to any of my peer group.

Kerry Okikiade, Firebox Financial Controller


CJP has provided Firebox with a very professional and timely service.  CJP identified and assisted in the correction of a serious data corruption in Sage 50 and was able to minimize the impact to the accounting function whilst the data was repaired.  He showed a great understanding not just of Sage but of the impact of running the accounting package over a network and made several changes to our existing set up which have measurably improved the speed of the system.  CJP presented us with a series of available options to assist with the correction and managed the whole process; because CJP is a Sage partner CJP was able to get us a great value cover package which provided a data fix for free, and an upgrade to the current version. 

We were so impressed with his knowledge of Sage that we asked CJP to return in 2 different capacities; 1 to provide us with support from an accounting perspective in identifying the corrupt transactions and rebuilding our accounting data, and 2 to provide training to our accounts team on new functionality that will make our lives a lot easier.  I am very pleased with all the work that CJP did for us, we are a small team and all new to Sage.  He was available to provide support at every stage of the issues we faced, and gave us excellent value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to call CJP again should the need arise. 


David Cotterell, Director, Oil Companies International Marine Forum

I commissioned the services of Chris Prothero of CJP Accounting Solutions, to enable use to upgrade our SAGE Accounts system from Basic to Professional and our Payroll system from instant to SAGE 50 Payroll. Chris also delivered bespoke training to our staff on the upgraded accounts and payroll systems, and installed SAGE HR on our server.

It was evident to those of us who worked with him on this project that Chris is an experienced SAGE business partner, with excellent technical knowledge and skills in this area. Chris possesses a 'can-do' attitude - when complications arose that he could not have anticipated, Chris was determined and dedicated to identifying the solution for us, and to ensuring that he provided us with exceptional service.

I would recommend Chris Prothero to other organisations seeking a SAGE business partner to work with them.

CollaborateRhys Kelly, Operations Director, Collaborate London Ltd

We employed the services of CJP, to set up SAGE 50 accounts and SAGE payroll for us. CJP took the time to understand our old accounting system and tailored the installation and training around this.

Through Chris’s expert technical knowledge and assistance as a SAGE business partner we successfully implemented the new accounting system within the timescale agreed - managing to import a huge amount of historical data from the old excel based system into SAGE 50 Accounts.
I am looking forward to working with Chris again in the future and would highly recommend him to any company looking to work with a SAGE business partner.

No1 TravellerPaul Lawes, CFO and Director of Corporate, No.1 Traveller Ltd

Work brief: CJP installed a tailored Sage 50 Accounts Professional set-up for 3 companies, 2 users.

CJP provided us with a tailored Sage 50 solution for our start up business. They were very helpful in ensuring the package did what we needed it to and was reactive to the many changes that we required as the installation progressed. I would definitely use CJP's services again."

RFCA Joanne-Marie Jordan, Head of Finance & Personnel at RFCA (Part of MOD)

Work brief: Contracted CJP as an Accountant/Consultant from Jan 2009- April 2010

“In early 2009 we were in desperate need of assistance in our Finance department: numerous changes, including short-staffing, had caused a serious back-log of work. CJP Accounting Solutions came to our rescue. Hitting the ground running, in a very short period of time, CJP were able to take on various duties including, for example, doing a full audit of one of our subsidiaries, developing ‘user-friendly’ Excel spreadsheets to facilitate quarterly reports, and analysing previously unexamined sales data from our sub-letting department. There knowledge of Sage was also of great benefit, as this is used in our sub-letting department. In late 2009, when a serious illness kept me away from the office for nearly three months, CJP took over many of my duties and kept the ship afloat. I am very happy to recommend CJP to any of you who may require their assistance.” July 28, 2010

Top qualities: Personable, Good Value, Creative

CJP provided a professional service and has saved me a great deal in the last tax year. I have a property that I let out and needed to complete accounts for 2008-2009. CJP took on my accounts, which were quite chaotic, and went through them methodically. They also negotiated with the tax office to include expenses that began in the previous tax year resulting in no tax being paid for 2008-2009. I would highly recommend CJP and will look to use him for any future accounts that I need for the house or any other freelance work that I undertake.” July 22, 2010

Work brief: CJP Accountant required to tie up two years worth of accounts for a buy-to-let property undertaken Dec 2009.
