I have worked with Matt, Helen, Andrew and Steven at Armstrong Watson over the past three years and it has been a refreshing experience for all involved at Phoenix. There is a real feeling that the team believe in our business and want to help us to succeed. Their approach is collaborative, thorough and friendly and as a result it feels like we are working to the same goals. Their advice is swift and hugely helpful and no problem appears too great for them to deal with. The team at Armstrong Watson have been a real contributing factor in the growth of our business and have assisted our ability to make the necessary changes as the business expands. I would thoroughly recommend Matt and his team to any business seeking a proactive audit and tax team.

To our valued colleagues at Armstrong Watson, Members MSI Global Alliance.
Recently we at The Renaissance Group Chartered Accountants referred two of our valued long time Canadian clients to Armstrong Watson, members of the MSI Global Alliance. Our clients had some UK filing needs and a lot of concerns in this regard. Our clients were thrilled with the service provided by Armstrong Watson and in particular the helpful proactive care from Scott McIver. They contacted us right after the first meeting and again after the services were complete to express their complete confidence and more importantly, how comfortable they felt with the advice they were getting and felt that someone really cared! From the Renaissance Group perspective, I found Armstrong Watson to be effective, efficient and great team players, thereby making us hero’s for our client.
Thank you to Scott and all the team at Armstrong Watson.

Rohan and the team at Armstrong Watson have been a valued business partner and a continued part of our growth and development at KMF. They have offered constructive and commercial solutions when needed and are extremely approachable.
Their fee levels are extremely competitive across the key products, and service levels, in my opinion, exceed that of their peer group and that of the Big 4.

We were put in touch with Armstrong Watson by a colleague. Our first point of contact was Steve Roberts, a very knowledgeable professional. Following our initial meeting with Steve we decided that it was time to change our accountants. Armstrong Watson has helped our business immeasurably by restructuring it in a tax efficient way. They are experts, friendly and nothing ever seems too much trouble. All members of the various teams that we deal with on a daily basis are professional and nice. We can highly recommend them. Armstrong Watson are now our payroll, book-keeping, personal and business accountants!!

Not being from a financial background myself, Armstrong Watson deliver the information I need on a level I can understand. I trust them highly and the service I’ve had from them has been fantastic.

When the company of long standing, manufacturing furniture, with a strong balance sheet, was sold to a private equity firm Armstrong Watson was instrumental in assisting the future purchase in formulating the financial models, cash flow analysis and pro forma profit and loss. The representatives of Armstrong Watson involved, produced such levels of high quality results and provided invaluable contribution such that the new owners have commissioned further assistance in the post transaction.
This has been an effective transaction made so by having people with the skills in understanding the business and the requirements of the customer. These skills have been evident from the beginning of the process and mention should be given to David Richmond, a partner in the business and Andrew Padgett, a member of the corporate team, who reports to David. Andrew has a good understanding of the requirements to produce financial models with integrity. His knowledge of financials is invaluable but coupled with his knowledge of manufacturing accounting produces quality results enabling more effective management decisions at a high level.
David Richmond has an excellent understanding of business finance reporting and this experience helps to direct others, enabling results within a short time. His knowledge and the ability to understand various situations provide a valuable contribution to any strategic direction particularly in the area of finance.
They are exceptional and a credit to Armstrong Watson a very professional outfit and without doubt their contribution has made the transaction exceedingly cost effective.
John Williams, Managing Director, Ness Furniture
As our auditors and business advisors, David and the team have acted for us for over ten years. They have a common sense approach, speak our language and are only ever a phone call away.
