gain Testimonials

Here are the latest gain testimonials from customers who have worked with us…





Jess Collins, Director, Type

We have worked with GAIN for a year. At the beginning of the year he met with me, a one man band who didn’t have a clue about accountancy and didn’t really know much about business! A year on and we have grown month on month at a rapid rate. I am now the proud owner of a reputable agency and team of seven with a healthy profit after just 12 months. Did my accountancy company really impact this? Absolutely! Ian meets with me every quarter to discuss my business and give me advice – not just on the numbers but on all of the matters surrounding it from employee issues to growth management. He has become my most trusted advisor and with reason. GAIN were recommended to me by a friend who said “they will take the past and use it to inform your future”. I absolutely know the future for my business now – organisationally and financially and this is down to them, I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone.



Charlie Snell, Director, Rethink Marketing

I’ve only recently switched to using Gain for our accountancy needs and I’m very glad. They’re a no-nonsense bunch, and not afraid to point out the errors of my ways – which is exactly what I need, as we all have businesses to run, and the more they can take away the hassle of sorting out the accounts, the better!  What I also like is Ian’s business background, as opposed to a solely accountancy one, which means he has straight-talking advice on the business-side and I’m looking forward to that turning into a better, more profitable business. Would definitely recommend a discussion if you’re looking for new accountants.

MI-Grid – Jonathan Kearsley

I now use Gain Accountancy for four businesses that I own and run: Trevissome Business Park, Mi-Grid Limited, Mi-Grid Energy Limited and Mi-Grid Developments Limited.  In total we have a projected annual turnover of around £3M, with current development budget of around £14M, so we run a serious group of businesses.

Ian and his team at Gain Accountancy are exceptional.  For years I have used accountants for book keeping services, with an annual review.  Despite seeing basic management accounts, never really feeling like my business had the financial insight to inform decisions in the way I had hoped.  In the past three months of working with Gain I now see how a good firm of accountants can operate and I would never go back.

It’s cliché, the idea that accountants look forward and not backward, but to experience the results of a proactive approach, where your accountant feels part of the team is extraordinary.  I feel like we now have a financial director rather than a service provider and Gain’s approach to the whole business is extraordinary.

As a next step, we are about to use Gain’s marketing services to replace our existing service providers.  I would recommend Gain to any business, with particular emphasis on medium size business strategy for growth.

Sue Hook, Sapience HR, Cornwall

Accounts are not my favourite thing in the world. But I do understand how crucial it is to have the numbers about my business at my finger-tips. I know little about the intricacies of accountancy and so I needed an accountant who could guide me through the myriad of rules and help me interpret the numbers into an understandable format so I could get the most out of them. Gain are the people to do all of this.

I met with Ian who explained my accounts and tax situation in a very understandable way. It was a relief as everything started to make sense.  Gain are very reliable, extremely thorough and allow me to ask the simple questions about my numbers, without making me feel incompetent. All the staff are extremely professional, very approachable and above all, they understand my needs as a businesswoman. I cannot recommend their services highly enough.

Karen Gallagher, North Country Garage Limited, Redruth, Cornwall

Before we used Gain we didn’t have any clue as to where our business was going.

They worked with us to create forecasts and targets which have given our staff something to work to and has given us back control of our business. We also have regular meetings with the team to check our progress and to see what we could be doing better. As a result of the work with Gain, the business has totally improved. We now know what we are doing and what we are aiming for. Before we started with Gain we were using our maximum overdraft, now we have surplus cash in our account. I would recommend Gain to anyone who wants to have control of their business and know what’s going on.





 Toni Eyriey, Business Cornwall, Cornwall

Since beginning our relationship with Gain, we have been impressed with the professional way they have organised our bookkeeping and accounting records. They quickly convert the paperwork we send them into useful information and provide us with feedback on how our business is performing and what we could do to make it better.

Ian and the team are approachable and speak plain English. They encourage us to call when we need advice and we like the fixed fee which we pay monthly. The service is great for the cash flow and it means there are no nasty surprises either.




Approachable, patient and excellent communication.

Rojer and Wendy Isaacson, Data-Frame Solutions Ltd, Cornwall



Always pleasant, helpful and efficient.

Mrs S O’Neil, Carnon Downs, Cornwall


You have provided me with friendly yet professional advice and service. All proceedings have been clearly explained with the patience I required being unfamiliar with financial and especially tax matters. Thank you.
