Our customers have some lovely comments to make about our work.
Here’s a selection of their testimonials.
Paul was recommended to me by a friend. I decided to give remote training a go as had recently set up a client with Xero and felt that some one to one training would give me a better understanding of the software. This proved to be a great decision. Paul walked through the whole process over a period of initially four lessons.
He works at your pace and answers any questions clearly, by screen sharing he was able to point his way around the software & we worked through all the elements that Xero offers. We booked the days and times to train to suit what I had to get done for my client, so I was working on actual documents rather than test ones.
I also came away feeling that I would be happy to offer my services to other clients and get them set up with this amazing package. Leaning Hubdoc that compliments Xero was truly a revelation. It has allowed me to work completely remotely and enabled my client to work more efficiently. Paul also produced a set of accompanying notes that has assisted when you need to have a refresh.
Having been so happy with the first four lessons I booked a one-off lesson for VAT in Xero as had no experience of filing one with HMRC. Again, Paul gave me the confidence to complete this task and we filed one live in my last lesson.
I know zoom has now reached many more users than before, I have to say the video and sound quality is excellent and with Pauls smiley face on your screen makes training remotely just as good as a training room!
A professional, efficient and friendly service at a reasonable price, sorted out my tax return and very happy with the amount of rebate, I would recommend this company to anyone who needs bookkeeping services.
Thank you so much to Paul Cain, Owner of Cain & Beer, for the fantastic Xero and Hubdoc Training. As a creative I shiver at the thought of spread sheets and figures. Paul was so patient and the on line training via zoom really was amazing. I was able to see Pauls screen as he explained what I needed to do. I am now up and running and feel in control of my business. I have successfully used the lockdown time to learn a new skill and I highly recommend Paul for his Xero Workshop. He answered all my questions and nothing was too much trouble. Now I can keep up to date with my invoices and banking and not a spread sheet in sight.
You have enabled Jaynered Creative Design to step up a level and finish the missing piece of the puzzle. I am proud I have learnt this new package, and Paul made the learning process very user friendly
Not having any prior knowledge of Xero Software, when it came to me transferring my accounts from excel, I got myself in a bit of a muddle. Paul Cain came to my rescue helped and trained me, so I am in a much better place and now able to submit my Vat Returns online. It has been a pleasure having Paul in my home working alongside me. He has been very patient with me and always been there to help. I would highly recommend him in the future.

Paul is a safe pair of hands. Always on hand to answer any queries and help navigate through the ever changing legislative landscape. In short, a trusted advisor.
I went on Quick books free one day course and completed Xero’s online training. But I felt I had gaps in my knowledge and both packages did things different to each other and my old software. Paul and Helen were able to sort me out and I have just completed my first VAT return using Quick books. Both are very friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed our sessions together.
Chaos is merely order waiting to be deciphered’ – if you need to sort chaos, we can unreservedly recommend Cain & Beer who transformed our accounts, providing the process, procedures and systems to allow us to run the business more effectively. Cain & Beer provide a professional, friendly and cost-effective service.
Paul has been my book keeper for several years now and cannot recommend him highly enough, his diligence at getting the job done and done well are second to none. If you need book keeping services or training Cain and Beer is the best place you could be.
I have been using Cain and Beer for few years now and I wouldn’t think of using anyone else. They look after you as though you are a member of their family and nothing is too much trouble for them. My VAT returns have never been in better hands.
My retail-clients, and I, are both delighted with the service given by Cain & Beer these last months. Everything is turned round in a most timely manner, at a very fair price, so everyone is happy! My client has the information back promptly, and I can be happy that everything is right.

Paul from Cain and Beer currently runs all my books at Secure Plumbing and Heating, amazing personal service. Everything done always on time.

Paul Cain of Cain and Beer has recently taken over our bookkeeping requirements. We cannot fault the service in any way.
Best bookkeeping firm I have ever outsourced to. Fast turnaround, excellent value for money and accurate, well presented work. Hopefully we will continue to work together for the foreseeable!
I have used Cain & Beer Ltd for many years, they always do a good job and I have learned a lot from Paul. There are lots of things you need to know when running a business and it isn’t worth trying to do everything yourself. Trust the experts and add value in your own way to your business.
I used Paul, when I needed to transfer all my accounts to Sage, from another accounting package. Paul was very patient in teaching me the new system during the one-to-one training sessions, and I was also able to call on him for help afterwards. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul.
Cain and Beer have introduced us to the world of Sage. We now do all our own accounts, VAT, bookkeeping, payroll, CIS and submissions “in house”. We would highly recommend using them. A huge thank you to Paul for all his hard work and continued support!
We have used Cain and Beer for help with Sage bookkeeping. Paul Cain is knowledgeable on Sage and has been very helpful and patient. No query is too much trouble. The annual Bookkeeping Support is great value for money and it gives great peace of mind.
I have received 2 days Sage training course from Cain and Beer Ltd, and I am very pleased with the service provided. I am now able to use the Sage system to carry out my daily duties accurately.
Cain and Beer have undertaken training for my clients and all have commented on the quality of the training and the friendliness of the trainer. Highly recommended.
The information session provided was very helpful and focused me on the key priorities for my business. There was also further sources for help offered. Thank you so much for all your help.
The Cain and Beer workshop on Bookkeeping for Beginners / start-up companies was well structured and informative. The presentation was systematic and pleasantly informal.
An accounting and Bookkeeping Company that is offering insight and understanding, with a sense of humour to keep light what is a serious topic. Very forthcoming and knowledgeable, with an approach in great breadth and no pretence and very much contemporary.
I recently attended a wonderful workshop by Paul Cain of Cain and Beer and was very impressed with the professionalism and knowledge. I learnt a lot and would not hesitate to recommend Cain and Beer.
It was a great workshop. Paul was answering all questions asked. Would recommend to everyone who is starting his adventure with bookkeeping.
I used the bookkeeping services of Paul Cain in 2013 and found the service provided to be extremely professional and efficient. I would highly recommend working with Cain and Beer.
