Testimonials

“The team at Consilium have undertaken a number of due diligence exercises for Maven Capital Partners and have brought invaluable advice on every occasion based principally on their tangible grasp of the commercial drivers influencing each transaction. Their ability also to develop good working relationships with management teams has helped to facilitate transactions and I would readily recommend them.”

Julie Glenny
Investment Director, Maven Capital Partners

“When we commenced merger discussions with BLM it was important to ensure we worked with advisers who understood our business and who would provide commercial advice on all aspects of the proposed transaction.  Consilium’s corporate finance team of David, John and Linzi proactively supported us throughout the process.  Consilium helped us negotiate the key commercial terms of the merger, supported the drafting of the legal agreements, undertook financial due diligence and provided personal tax and VAT advice.
This broad range of services was provided seamlessly through a single point of contact. The Consilium team were available to us at all times throughout the process and could be relied upon to undertake their work diligently and professionally.”

Karen Dance
Partner, HBM Sayers

“James and the Consilium team have been inspirational in providing advice and financial direction to many aspects of our businesses since they started trading last year.
As a result of the global economic downturn, we were met with several business challenges. A solution to many of the issues were provided and driven by Consilium ranging from cash flow forecasting and fundraising, forensic accounting investigation, and expert tax advice both corporate and personal. A sense of security and confidence is derived as a result of our partnership with Consilium. I would be happy to discuss my experiences to date with anyone who is considering using their services.”

Robert Jenkins
Joint Managing Director, One Stop Group

I have dealt with some of the senior staff in Consilum for over thirty years. This includes Audit, Tax and Financial Due Diligence on Acquisitions. The service levels have always been first class and the quality of work excellent. Against this background the fee level has always been competitive. In my view the firm offers excellent value for money especially when you compare them to the Big Four and mid-tier firms where medium sized SMEs understandably will take second place to the multinationals. Tom and the team have a great mix of experience and knowledge but are “hands on” enough to offer a personal service.

“I have known Raymond and the team at Consilium for over 10 years now and have worked with them on various projects. They have many years of experience and are specialists in different areas of accountancy, tax and finance. Unlike others, however, the individual department specialists work together harmoniously to deliver a one stop, seamless solution. The team at Consilium not only deliver but always go that one step further to make life easier for me, allowing me to focus on running and growing my business. The services I use are monthly management accounts, end of year audit and accounts, corporation tax, acquisition advice and diligence, group restructuring, personal tax, tax investigation support, and many other areas of ad hoc accounts, taxation and financial advice. As a recent example, I have been restructuring my business and creating a new group; Consilium helped us through the whole process and worked directly with the lawyers which saved time and money. I would strongly recommend anyone looking for a new accountancy firm or looking to change accountancy firm to give Consilium a call.”

Founder and Managing Director, Resource Data Management Group

“Charles Burton has advised the Conetta and Gizzi families for over 30 years, since before the first Di Maggio’s restaurant.  Our group now has over 20 restaurants and the team at Consilium are able to provide the full range of services required by our expanding business.  We value their input. As a Chartered Accountant myself, I am looking for more than compliance services from my advisers.  I need to be challenged on my plans and I believe that this is one of Consilium’s great strengths.
I would recommend Consilium to any ambitious Owner Managed Business.”

Mario Gizzi
Di Maggio’s Group

“Confidence and trust are the cornerstones of a long term business relationship. For us, continuity in tax, audit, corporate finance support, R&D tax credits and payroll is essential and, when the professionals that had been providing us with these services set up Consilium, we didn’t hesitate to move with them.  We look forward to working with Consilium and building on our long term relationships.”

Dr Lindsay Wood
R&D Director, Sciencesoft

“The team at Consilium not only advise on the compliance issues, they all have a great understanding of how business works and always are available to give you first class advice on both commercial and personal financial matters.  I have no hesitation in recommending them to potential clients.”

WC Willis & Co Ltd, Scotland’s leading independent suppliers of Personal Protective Equipment, have relied on Charles Burton and his staff since 2001, the very beginning of the Management Buy-out that led to the current ownership of our company. Our relationship began way before the formation of Consilium, when we were dealing with HL Bloom & Co. We learned then that when it comes to the financial and technical aspects of purchasing and then running a business, selection of the right advisers is essential. Our business has been steered through quite substantial growth since our acquisition and more recently the testing times of the recession by the team who now form Consilium. Our belief is that when it comes to the kind of advice on business, tax and the various other requirements of running a business, then what matters, more than in any other business environment, is people.
In Consilium, we are absolutely sure that we have the right mix of skills needed and the advice, direction and encouragement given to us over our 13 years of working with Charles and his team has ensured our security in our challenging market place.
