Andrew has been an invaluable asset to the Monks Yard team. When trying to grow a business, having the right financial reports to properly understand how your business is doing is essential. Not only did Andrew provide a solution for financial reporting he also helped us compose an action plan that enabled us to improve profitability.
Andrew is straight talking but always leaves you feeling energised and ready to face any issues head on, we really appreciated his personal and positive approach. Both our accountants and bank manager were very happy to work with him which has also improved our relationships thanks to us having a better understanding of our business. If we need any advice in the future Andrew will be the first person we call.
Rebecca Holling - Monks Yard, Senior Manager
When we first approached Andy we had experienced growth as a company - both in terms of turnover and complexity - but had not experienced the necessary growth in our accounts team or systems. This meant that our financial reporting was poor and this lack of reliable and timely information made it difficult to run the business.
Andy spent time getting to understand our system as it was and then devised a whole new system for the accounts function; with the end result that we now get excellent monthly information which is essential for both internal usage and external audiences. Indeed this information has helped to improve our banking relationship which has been very reassuring given the general problems of getting sufficient credit in the current climate.
Andy is hugely professional, committed and accurate with what he produces - he is just what we need.
Mr I Spear - Coombe Fisheries Ltd, Director
I have known Andy Martin of Andrew Martin Consulting for many years, and more recently he has been working with the P&M Group of Companies to advise the Board on the structure and reporting of our management accounts. Andrew Martin Consulting take a common sense approach and, unlike many in the accounting profession, are able to translate complex accounting principles into meaningful management information. Andy's regular input has helped us to plan strategy based on accurate and timely financial information, and this makes him a valuable asset to the business. I recommend any business owner to talk to Andrew Martin Consulting and see how they can help you to improve your financial management information.
Carolyn Turner - Turners of Erlestoke Ltd, Director

Mr Malcolm Marks - Milsted Langdon Financial Services Ltd, Director
"I've known Andy for 20 years and have used him for clients. He's trustworthy and very dependable. You know he'll get the job done: he delivers what he says he'll do when he says he will."
Mr Keith Sandow - Dixon Walsh Chartered Accountants, FCA
"Andy's given me a lot of confidence. I used to do our books on paper, but when we went Limited I needed to use the computer. Andy explained everything in language I could understand and was on the end of the phone if I had any problems."
Jacqui McLoughlin - P A McLoughlin Ltd, Secretary
"Andy has financial acumen: it's important to make things happen. I can advise, but he gets people doing things they've not done, instilling financial discipline. We work very well together!"
"Andy is much more than an accountant: he's very supportive and well-connected; he helped with a very complex case. He's passionate about his work; he also sees the bigger picture, not just the work in front of him."

Wholesale Distribution Company (Turnover approx. £3m)
"The efficiency of the department improved considerably following his appointment with output always punctual and accurate, demonstrating Andrew's ability and commitment even if this necessitated working into the small hours. Other responsibilities included negotiations with the company's bankers and other professional advisors together with the Directors or acting on their behalf."
Mr Bob Peilow - Cake Art Limited, Managing Director
Ford Main Dealer Group (Turnover approx. £55m)
"…Andrew’s remit was always very flexible and open allowing him the freedom to identify and correct areas of weakness in our internal control systems and operating procedures. Operating at a senior management level, communicating daily with Board members he acted with discretion and on his own initiative. Andrew’s commitment was total, demonstrating a particularly strong work ethic. Output was always punctual and accurate despite very tight deadlines and reporting constraints. Inevitably this often required him to act in conjunction with and on behalf of myself and/or the Directors in negotiations with third parties including bankers and investors, professional advisors and Government bodies. By building a suitable rapport, Andrew majored in buoying up the confidence of such interested parties to the organisation, always portraying an image of professionalism and assurance."

"I have really appreciated Andrew’s contribution to the company over the last two years. His leadership and management of the dealership has been of real benefit to me during some very challenging times."
Mr Andrew Barrett - Helston Garages Group, Group Managing Director
Andrew has been working with us since the original purchase of the business. He has been invaluable to me and the business during that time and is everything (and more) that you could wish of a truly professional consultant. I have worked with many consultants over the years and I can honestly say that this man is the best I have come across." "Andrew is clearly a highly competent financial professional, honest and highly focused, however it's the wealth of additional skills, knowledge and contacts; together with the fact that he really does treat the business as he would if it were his own, that makes him stand out above the rest in my opinion."
"I would therefore highly recommend him to any business looking for either a financial or general management consultant."
"Thank you Andy for everything you have done for us over these last three years; and for all that I know you will do over the coming years."
