Romi Machines UK Ltd left Burgis and Bullock on the promise of better prices, but they regretted it and came back. Have you ever been attracted by low prices and regretted it later?

"I've been using Burgis & Bullock since I started in business. I've always been happy with the service I've been given. Over the years we've gone through a lot of difficulties but they've always been very helpful. You need good advice from all professionals and I think the fact that we've always made a profit and we're still in business is down to the work we do, but also the advice we're given from the professionals, including Burgis & Bullock. I'm involved a lot in the preparation of the documentation for Burgis & Bullock. I have a professional that I've dealt with now for some years who comes to site and we get on very well, so it's an easy process to complete the documentation. I'm kept up to date with the financial position of the home which is always a good thing. They advise me on what is now required in the accounts so it's invaluable that way. I'm kept up to date with legislation and supplying all the information to the bank. I did get one of their specialists, Rosie, to look at some things for me about a year ago which has benefited us greatly so I've been very pleased."

Thank you for your comments John. Everyone here at Burgis & Bullock is delighted with your feedback. John O'Sullivan is the managing director of Cow Lees Care Home in Bedworth. Cow Lees is a family-run 72-bed care home set in three acres in the beautiful county of Warwickshire. Since 1992, Cow Lees has provided specialist care for people with dementia and challenging behaviour. Burgis & Bullock has been John O’Sullivan’s accountants of choice since he started in business in 1992. John puts the fact that his company is still operating profitably down, in part, to Burgis & Bullock’s professional advice and outstanding service. As well as providing audit services, Burgis & Bullock also help Cow Lees with their tax affairs. This ensures the company is compliant and as tax efficient as possible.

Tough times for the care home sector

The needs of a company operating in the care home sector are complicated and varied. It has been a difficult time for the care sector with many care homes being forced to close their doors due to spiralling costs. In addition, the industry suffered much adverse publicity, which had an effect on the reputations of even the best-run homes in the sector.

The industry today is heavily regulated, with regular inspections and stringent standards set by the Care Quality Commission. As well as meeting and exceeding the care standards, care home owners have onerous fiscal responsibilities and complicated tax affairs. John O’Sullivan was the first to admit, “Over the years we've gone through a lot of difficulties but they've [Burgis & Bullock] always been very helpful. You need good advice from all professionals and I think the fact that we've always made a profit and we're still in business is down to the work we do, but also the advice we're given from the professionals, including Burgis & Bullock.”

Search for a ‘competent’ account led to Burgis & Bullock

When Cow Lees Care Home opened its doors in 1992, John’s search for a competent firm of accounts began. Burgis & Bullock’s experience in the care home sector and their tailored, personal approach has led to a professional relationship which has, to date, spanned 26 years.

John works closely with his Burgis & Bullock advisors. He said, “I'm involved a lot in the preparation of the documentation for Burgis & Bullock. I have a professional that I've dealt with now for some years who comes to site and we get on very well, so it's an easy process to complete the documentation”.

Burgis & Bullock manages the Cow Lees annual audits ensuring the company is not just compliant, but that every specific area of need is addressed. As a company, Burgis & Bullock adhere to the APB Ethical Standards set by the Financial Reporting Council, which promotes transparency and integrity in business. 

As well as audit services, Burgis & Bullock advises Cow Lees on its tax affairs. Tax efficiency is essential for any business, but for a care home employing large numbers of staff, it is critical. Burgis & Bullock’s professional advice and guidance ensures tax liabilities are kept to a minimum, whilst still complying with the demands of HMRC.

The benchmark of Burgis & Bullock’s service is its standards of customer service. The company believes in open lines of communication and a professional team that clients can trust implicitly. John O’Sullivan summed it up by saying, “I'm kept up to date with the financial position of the home which is always a good thing. They advise me on what is now required in the accounts so it's invaluable that way. I'm kept up to date with legislation and supplying all the information to the bank. I did get one of their specialists, Rosie, to look at some things for me about a year ago which has benefited us greatly so I've been very pleased.”

"Burgis & Bullock are friendly and approachable. We've been with them for years. They're 100% better than our previous accountants; They have more of a layman's approach and made it easier for non accounting personnel to understand accounting procedures. They've benefited the business as we now have a more concise accounting facility."

Eckold Ltd – German Swiss Engineering Connected with the future and with an Eye for Detail

‘German Swiss engineering’, these three words paint a picture of high quality, precision engineering and sum up Eckold perfectly.  Whilst it probably means little to the man in the street, Eckold are renowned for their world famous ‘Kraftformer’ range of Sheet Metal Shaping Machinery and the Clinching range of Metal Joining Machinery and Tooling.

Eckold Ltd is the UK arm of the business supplying innovative quality products and systems for the Aerospace, Automotive, Commercial Vehicle, Engineering, Medical and Rotational Moulding industries.

Problems with Communications and a Need for Financial Clarity:

Lynda Green, MD of Eckold Ltd was not happy with the guidance and support they were receiving from their accountants.  Lynda and her team needed appropriate Management Information to help guide and inform their decision making in the day to day financial control of the business.

As most of Lynda’s management team were not accounting personnel by training, they were also frustrated by their previous Accountants inability to talk their language and explain things in plain English, so everyone could understand. 

Financial Insight in Plain English, Effective Management Reports and More:

Lynda needed guidance and support from a financial expert able to explain complex financial and accounting issues in layman’s terms, however, the ‘tipping point’ was the need for regular, accurate and timely Management Information to help Ekhold’s management team make the right financial decisions at the right time.

That was long ago, Burgis & Bullock have been Eckold’s accountants for many years.  In that time numerous other financial issues have been addressed with the enthusiastic help and support from the Burgis & Bullock team.  These include not only Management Information, but also payroll, year-end compliance, Audit, the directors personal tax and help with auto-enrolment and companies pension scheme.

Services Delivered:
  • Management Information
  • Statutory Compliance
  • Audit
  • Payroll
  • Personal Tax Returns
  • Auto Enrolment
Recommendation:

In Lynda’s own words: 
Burgis & Bullock are friendly and approachable. Eckold have been with them for years and they are 100% better than the previous accountants”
“They have more of a layman’s approach and made it easier for non-accounting personnel to understand accounting procedures. They’ve benefited the business and we now have a more concise accounting facility.

For someone who does not like giving 5 out of 5, Lynda’s feedback is all the more special; with ‘Excellent’ ratings for the ‘Quality of Communications’ and being ‘Considerate and Helpful’.  This means ‘Very Good’ as a rating for the ‘Service Delivered’ and ‘Value for Money’ is as good as it gets.

"Especially on the accounts side, we did try another accounting company but found Burgis & Bullock to be more personable, flexible and committed to our needs. On the audit side we have used another company as well and they just couldn't deliver the same level of service as Burgis & Bullock. The audit was done poorly and didn't have good traceable records, and the working papers couldn't be found so we moved back to Burgis & Bullock. You get what you pay for. We used to have an accountant and he made the decision but then regretted it."

Romi Machines UK Ltd – Specialist Injection Moulding Machinery Manufacture, Sales and Support.

Romi Machines UK Ltd is the UK arm of Brazil’s largest machinery manufacturer.  They are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of specialist injection moulding machines in Europe.  The company is expanding rapidly in the UK and Europe.  They are committed to providing excellent after sales care for all their machines and stock a huge number of spare parts so the equipment they sell can be maintained and downtime avoided.

Their expertise enables them to deliver complete solutions from planning to installation. Their products are low cost, maximise up time and have low energy consumption providing the perfect solution for every day workshop needs.

Poor Audit Quality, Lack of Traceability Records and Lost Working Papers… Just some of the problems.

These were just some of the issues Marcel Machado, the General Manager of Romi Machines UK Ltd had to contend with when, understandably, they were tempted by the promise of ‘quality service and lower prices’.  Fortunately for Romi Machines, Marcel knew when things were not going as well as they should.

A good Audit protects everyone; however, it relies on robust systems and processes, a minimum requirement is good working papers and traceability.  When Marcel realised this was missing, he was swift to take action and address the situation by changing Accountants as soon as possible.

Fortunately, Marcel knew exactly where to turn...

Having Experienced Burgis and Bullock’s Service Levels, the Solution was Obvious.

Having previously used Burgis and Bullock’s Audit services, Romi Machines and Marcel were fortunate in knowing where to go to for the expert guidance, professionalism and attention to detail they needed.

Wendy Hubbard, Senior Partner at Burgis and Bullock heads up the Corporate Services division, including audit and business advice for local and international companies as well as charities and not for profit organisations.

Wende’s expertise and first-hand experience and a particular focus on the engineering and manufacturing sector, allowed her to offer practical and technical advice whilst sharing invaluable insight with Romi Machines UK Ltd.

In Wende’s words: “We are delighted to be working with Romi Machines UK Ltd to audit their accounts and help with corporate finance planning”.
