I have to admit that my lifeline at Wilder Coe has really been critical through these difficult months.
It’s been a huge learning curve for me as a creative. I’ve had to wade through all the heavy-duty business lifting. Kudos to Wilder Coe for their incredible patience and being forthcoming with information. Thank you to the team for being so patient. It’s been a terrific experience over the past five years.
Bayly Ledes, President and CEO of Fashion Fragrances & Cosmetics UK Ltd, has partnered with Wilder Coe for outsourced payroll and bookkeeping services since 2017.
Bayly’s business focuses on the luxury, niche fragrance industry with a primary objective to sell, manufacture and distribute Robert Piguet perfumes. Piguet conquered the world of fragrance in 1944. Fashion Fragrances & Cosmetics Ltd continues Piguets legacy with offices in New York, London and Paris.
Historically, our London retailers are our biggest source of income and volume. We joined Wilder Coe after having our company in the Netherlands for many years. We determined it made much more sense to come to the UK, as sales volume was so significant and we have staff in multiple high-end stores.
We conduct a tremendous amount of business in the Middle East and across Europe. As a global business, it makes the most sense to have a UK-based company handle all the different taxes and administrative tasks, all the legalities. We have to maintain a large amount of documentation, so it’s crucial to have a business we can trust.
It’s a turnkey solution, which is what stands out about Wilder Coe. I don’t have to worry as nothing falls on by the wayside. Everything is put in its place, compartmentalised and efficient.
It’s great because not being in London and not handing everything over to the team, I know that all the T’s are crossed, and I’s are dotted. I never doubt that something will fall through the cracks. Wilder Coe allows me to sleep at night.
Everything now is clear. We are kept up to speed on all our accounting practices and receive whatever support we need.
I feel that Wilder Coe is a great fit for us as we are a small company, and we work in a very stealthy manner. Wilder Coe works with us and compliments us in that way. We have always received consistent and personalised attention from the team. It has never failed and never waned.
Wilder Coe is a group who you can call and never feel foolish for what may seem to be the simplest question. You are always met with professionalism with Wilder Coe. If you need a sense of humour, Wilder Coe will give you that. It is a very tight-knit and respectful team, and no question is ever considered unimportant.
We have changed so much of our business because of COVID-19, we have had to bob and weave, but COVID-19 made us re-think so many different things. It’s been wonderful to have Wilder Coe dodge and weave with us, so thanks for that.
