After my wife and I retired it made good sense to seek professional advice concerning our finances. Justin was the perfect choice! he is a very efficient and knowledgable person who listened to us and took our requirements on board. We couldn't have wished for a better advisor.
Having experienced lacklustre financial advice in the past , we were both initially reluctant to approach Justin for pension advice. We should not have worried as Justin has been a ‘breath of fresh air’ with his honesty and professionalism, guiding and advising us along the way from his wealth of knowledge and experience. We now feel that our finances are in safe hands and look forward to our Annual review for an update on the financial world.
My wife and myself needed a good, reliable financial advisor to manage our savings and pension funds. We have been very pleased with the service that has been provided for us by Justin Rourke and his team at Armstrong and Watson in Penrith. We receive an approachable and honest service, and have felt reassured that our funds are being managed sensibly and in our best interests. On the strength of our own experiences, I would have no hesitation in recommending Armstrong and Watson to others.
We have been clients of Armstrong Watson for many years and have been extremely satisfied with the services they provide. In particular James Fry and Steve Roberts who have proved to be not only experienced, forward thinking proffessionals but also very approachable and supportive. More recently Lisa Pocklington and Helen Tansley have helped us set up Automatic Enrolment for our staff and guided us through the intacaies and pitfalls of the system; which was much appriecated.
Whatever your field of business we would highly recommend Armstrong Watson.

We used Armstrong Watson for the first time this year to conduct our SRA Audit. I was impressed; not only with their thoroughness and professionalism, but also with the efficiency of the whole process. The audit is an essential element of our compliance processes, but it also has the potential to be a major distraction for the business. The Armstrong Watson team gave us very clear guidance from the outset and used technology well to deliver a highly effective audit with no unnecessary work for us. We will be returning to them next year.

Armstrong Watson have been my accountants since becoming a businesses owner 6years ago. They helped me throughout the set up and since. The firm has been able to keep me fully informed of any changes in legislation and were a great help in providing advice and set up for staff pensions. Through the hard work of the staff at Armstrong Watson I am able to relax and know that my accounts, pay roll and staff pension are correctly and professionally dealt with leaving me to concentrate on running the best businesses I can.
I would highly recommend Armstrong Watson to sole traders and limited companies alike who are looking for a professional and dedicated accounting firm.

Since moving to Armstrong Watson over 10 years ago, I have always been impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. I am most grateful for their kindness and for being so approachable. James Fry and Sharon Ryan are always at the other end of the telephone to answer any questions I may have and during a recent HMRC investigation they took all the worry and stress off my hands and sorted everything out with no effort on my part.
David Wright, Hebden Bridge Dental Care Limited
I have been with this firm since being a newly qualified dentist 25 years ago and have always been pleased with the service that they provide. I find both James and Sharon to be easily approachable and efficient in dealing with any queries that might I have.
I have also recently switched to Armstrong Watson for the running of the payroll of the practice. This had to be carried our at short notice and was very smoothly done.
Sue Barrett, Seacroft Dental Practice
Victoria has looked after our tax affairs for years now. She has coped effortlessly with the financial aftermath of my husband's death in 2015 and is now guiding me through the more complicated aftermath of my brother's death in 2016. She is always friendly and efficient, which is important to me as I have never had to worry about these matters before. I feel safe with Victoria.
We recognised that we could benefit from a more effective rewards programme for our staff and fee earners in order to reward and further encourage high performance. However, we were unsure about how to structure such a rewards programme in a way which would not have an adverse affect on morale within the firm or the culture of the firm.
We were impressed by the knowledge, experience and awareness of Andy Poole and the specialist legal sector team at Armstrong Watson. They really understood the likely impacts of potential rewards programmes and were able to provide a comprehensive report, suggesting a bonus scheme that was bespoke to our business, helping us to drive performance in our key areas. The presentation of the scheme, suggested rules and financial awareness training delivered to our fee earners has had a positive impact on our business.
