We have been using Cobia for over 3 years to provide our payroll functionality. We find them extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they are very flexible when it comes to deadlines, as always in business nothing ever runs smoothly, and they adapt to assist us at every opportunity. Our main point of contact is Michael Moss and the service he provides is second to none. Highly recommended.We have been approached by many companies over the years offering the same service at a reduced cost, however we stay with Cobia as we have a very strong relationship and have faith that everything is done first time correctly, that you cannot put a price on.

Very good service from Cobia. They are reliable, dependable, quick with queries, patient with tech change requests and even more so with European Data protection agreements. A great partner for every HR Manager. Special thanks to Saqib Hanif who has helped me numerous times to get things done for my company. More...

Cobia has been an amazing partnership to our business. They have worked with us under very tight timescales and they have not faltered once. The team, that consists of Michael Froom, Saqib Hanif and Lauren Beckett are the best of the best. We have had very little errors and any errors that have occurred have been rectified immediately. The team are incredibly knowledgeable and are always on hand for support if needed. I was very against outsourcing our payroll but now I have worked with Cobia, I would not hesitate to work with them again in the future or recommend them to anyone else. More...

From the first day I started using Cobia accounting services, their service was brilliant. Their employees are always happy over phone and ready to help. When they dedicated Mandy to be my personal support, she was spot on from day one. As I am new into having a limited company, Mandy was always more than helpful. Promptly answering emails or phone calls, she guided me through all the set up procedures and day to day navigation into software Xero, invoicing and expenses management. I would definitely recommend Cobia services to anyone out there in need of accountancy support.I was referred to use Cobia by couple of colleagues of mine who used to use their services couple of years ago. So that clearly shows Cobia's level of professionalism is staying at high level. More...

I’d personally recommend Cobia to anyone who’s interested in a stress-free, easy and personal accounting service. I opted for the Exec package to offload the entirety of our accounting and bookkeeping, however, the Cobia team (and our dedicated accountant, Sam) have gone above and beyond in being available for any questions and queries I’ve had, too. They’ve delivered on everything we’ve needed with both speed and quality and have given me a new confidence in knowing that everything is simply taken care of. A full 5 stars from me! More...

My account manager at Cobia lets me run my business while she tells me when I need to pay tax and when I can pay myself. Expenses and bank statements are handled through their online software. Anyone out there thinking of making the leap from employee to own business as I did should use Cobia and just get on with what you love doing! More...

I have been dealing with Sam for a couple of months for 2 separate limited companies and a tax investigation. It wasn't the easiest time to move accountants but I am glad I have done so. Sam has bent over backwards to help me get all my accounts into order ( i think i nearly drove him to a nervous breakdown at times !) and provided a system to ensure the mistakes of my previous accountants dont happen with Cobia If you are are reading this thinking about changing your accountant, look no further and take the plunge , you wont regret it!

Cobia Accounting give good advice and are good value for money. I have worked with two of their accountant and both have been very helpful. They are very responsive to email, pleasant to talk to on the phone and are always there to help.The only downside is that I find the accounting software could be improved when you are uploading bank details with a manual import. Other than that it works well and provides all that I need with my business. More...

Cobia was recommended to me through the company formation site I used, so I wasn't expecting much.I decided to sign Pro package, and since them my personal accountant Sam Harlow had exceeded my expectations in terms of response, pro-activity, suggestions and finally getting everything done. He takes the time to go through topics with me, he is always in great mood, friendly and knowledgeable.I had a question this week on how to implement in Xero and he spent time talking with Xero and searching for a solution for me, which was very good. He goes beyond ...I highly recommend a package with Your Own Personal Accountant, as the service is worth the costs.Thank you Cobia, thank you Sam! More...

Trustworthy and friendly staff, my accountant has been nothing but helpful with my contracting issues, the accounting fees are comparatively cheaper. One thing I will point out, Cobia should really improve the portal website's UX/UI, It's not very user-friendly, other than that, all good, highly recommended. More...

Cobia Accounting offer the perfect mix of a personal service, knowledgeable professionals and great software.

The world of contracting has changed over the last 10 years, and it would not have been possible for me to navigate this new landscape without the help of my accountant at Cobia Accounting.

We run a startup business called New Leaf Technology Solutions that builds great software for SMEs. When we were on the look out for an accounting partner, we wanted to find someone who we can grow with and who can keep up with the needs of a startup. Luckily we came across Cobia. Since day one, they have been very supportive, always ready to help out and so far we are in no doubt we have found an ideal match. I highly recommend their service. More...

I was recommended Cobia by my neighbour, and after speaking to Tanni, I went ahead and signed up.I found the process quick and easy, and my accountant Sam has been more than accommodating with every request. My business probably isn’t the typical business Cobia have dealt with in the past (I am purely e-commerce based) and Sam took the time to research integration methods so that my website orders would seamlessly import into their accountancy software - it’s saved me HOURS in admin time, so I’m really grateful.My VAT registration was completed swiftly, and I’m sure that my VAT and Self Assessment returns will be completed equally as efficiently.I’ll definitey be reccomending Cobia to other self employed friends and I’m sure I will continue to reap the benefits of their service for a long time to come.I will update the review once my first returns have been submitted by Cobia.

4 May 2018

This is my first venture that has required the use of an accountant, after researching many firms I felt most comfortable to speak with Cobia Accounting. At the first point of contact, I was made to feel like a valued customer and every detail was explained in depth. Now a member of Cobia Accounting I have been assigned my own personal accountant, who could not be more helpful and enthusiastic. Additionally, having access to use Cobia Accounting software which is user-friendly and simple to get to grips with makes anything tax-related more of a breeze than a migraine!This top rating reflects this company 100% and I will be with them well into the future as my business grows.

I was looking for an accountant to help me out after a previous bad experience, and a friend put me in touch with Imran from Cobia Accounting. I can honestly say that the quality of service that I have received so far has been nothing short of fantastic. I was struggling with the accounts for my limited company, after some poor advice from a previous accountant, but Imran has really helped me get everything in order, and also helped explain things in a simple way, which was important for me as I had no previous experience of payroll or accounts.Imran also managed to help me earn even more money through his dividends and expenses knowledge, which was another unexpected bonus!I am so happy with the service that I have received so far, and would happily recommend them to anybody looking for accountancy services.

16 November 2017

I have only been with Cobia for about 6 months as a IT Contracting Ltd company but in this time I have felt looked after and that my accountant (Atiyya) is patient, sharp and competent and above all, helpful to a degree that I would be surprised if another company would go out of their way as much as she has. Thanks Atiyya.The company's fees are in the same bracket as other companies I have researched so they don't really outshine the competition in this respect, but they are definitely not badly priced compared to other accountancy firms and they have been more than fair with me in negotiating some nice deals so I will still give them 5 stars. Hopefully more nice deals to come :) More...

16 November 2017

I have been with Cobia since 2012 as an IT Contracting Ltd company and in this time I have felt looked after and that my accountant (Salman) is always patient, competent and above all helpful, I doubt other accountants would go this far and would go out of their way as much as he has to deal with my questions. The company's fees are in the same bracket as other companies that I have looked in to, so they don't really outshine the others in this respect, but they are definitely competitive. So to sum up, I will give them 5 stars for their professionalism, friendliness and of course their desire to be helpful to all my questions and queries that I ask of them. They always contact me on time when my VAT and Taxes are due with no late reminders – always on the ball.Thanks again to all the Cobia team – Salman, Mandy, Atiyya and Sam. More...

Due to some circumstances, I decide to Freelance, therefore I needed professional advice and a good affordable accountant to look after my corporate and personal tax whilst I can focus on my professional work.

I had always wanted to start my own business but what with a young family and working just couldn’t see past the wall of things to do to get it off the ground; companies house, incorporation, business banking, accounts, salaries, insurances etc.I found Cobia online and voiced my concerns about their one stop shop product so the owner called me back, he couldn’t give me enough of his time despite it being Christmas and rushed off his feet with work. He understood me as a person and left the business to one side in order to gain my trust, something I was extremely grateful for because in the blink of an eye whilst I was busy working, my business was up and running, their wide range of networks meant being fully operational and legal was simple and easy.My dedicated accountant followed the owners lead and made me feel so comfortable that I always felt I was in control of the finances, safe in the knowledge that they were always there to guide me and make sure all the t’s were crossed and i’s were dotted.It’s a wonderful feeling, a liberating feeling being a business owner; I owe much of that feeling to Cobia for helping me make it happen.

I moved my accounts to Cobia in March 2017 and I have not looked back since.My previous accountants were competant, but I wanted more and Cobia have meet my expectation. I want my accountant to be a partner and to understand my personal goals and vision. This sounds grandiose, but I'm talking about making continual progress and executing the fundamentals more easily so you have time to do things on a larger scale. I feel that with Cobia, and my designated accountant (Salman) that things are moving forward all the time and the limit is now on me and my ambition. More...
