Client Testimonials

We take great pride in the fact that many of our clients are repeat customers and indeed, recommend us to their family and friends. It shows us that we’re meeting their unique requirements time and time again, and that our team provides the high-quality service they want – and deserve. We’ve included feedback from some of our satisfied clients below, as we feel they say it best when it comes to conveying the value of what we do.

“Gerard and Claire have been advising our family business for almost ten years now. For us, their commercial knowledge and hands-on attention are ever present. They have worked with us as we have grown and developed our business, sharing their financial, technical and business knowledge in a way we can follow and understand. Most importantly, they are at the end of the phone when we need to speak to them.”

Caledon Precision Engineering Ltd – Tanya Knox

“Gerard is a very capable business advisor. His breadth of knowledge across accounts, audit, tax and corporate restructuring is admirable. He has applied his extensive experience in working with large corporates, banks and investors as we have concentrated on growing and developing our business operations across Ireland. The key advantage in working with this firm is the senior specialist expertise available when you need it and the consistency of staffing from one project to the next. The firm’s focus on building a senior team of highly experienced professionals has been evident from day one.”

Europarts Motor Factors Ltd – Frazer Follis

“We moved to Gildernew & Co two years ago following personal recommendation. We are very happy with our decision. Last year we became incorporated and they were fantastic in guiding us through the process. They offer lots of ‘added value’ in terms of understanding our strategic plans as well as the smaller everyday technical or operational questions. Of particular note, is the benefit of having a one to one support from the same accountant, who is very organised and experienced. This continuity means that they understand our business which in turn imparts lots of confidence. A few months ago, we outsourced our payroll to Gildernew & Co which has also been very successful and allows us to focus on other aspects of our business. Overall, I heartily recommend.”

Mid Ulster Garden Centre – Peter Bradley

“I took over as Dealer Principal in J C Hallidays a couple of years back. The team at Gildernew & Co have been first class in supporting me in this new role as I work to further develop the business. They ensure I have the financial visibility on how the business is performing, where we can do better and what it will mean for us when we do. We recently opened a new satellite site in Castledawson and are presently undertaking a major capital development project at our North West site in Campsie. A lot of this work could not have been done without Gerard, Claire & the team who have played a vital role providing great support and business know how.”

JC Halliday & Sons – Campsie & Mid Ulster – Andrew Miller

“When one of my largest customers went out of business, my solicitor recommended that I go to meet Gerard. I hadn’t the money to pay wages the next day and I was afraid suppliers would arrive at my door that night and start lifting my assets. Within an hour of meeting Gerard, I knew I had options – he described what I could do and what each option would mean; clearly and in simple terms, no jargon. He helped me put a proposal to my creditors which 99% of them accepted. I am still in business and will always remember the immense relief in having the debt pressure lifted the day the proposal was accepted.”

“My brother ran up debts of more than £100,000 on credit cards, payday loans and hire purchase. Our accountant recommended that we meet Gerard and Aisling. They were superb! No judgements, no smart remarks, no aggression – in many ways a friendly ear to listen. We left our first meeting with a clear plan for who was going to do what. My brother has sorted his debts; he has held onto his house; and he is a totally different person. Thank you.”
