We have had a dispute with our EBT scheme for many years without any success and costly. We have tried several companies!
After 14 years of trying we were recommended to see Mr N Holmes of Armstrong Watson.
He has more than met our expectations and succeeded in bringing the scheme towards a final closure.
We are so pleased with the result after all the years of worry and stress.
We would definitely recommend Nigel for his expertise and professionalism.

I have been a client of Armstrong Watson for many years now, relying on your services to complete my yearly Tax Return, and have received an excellent accounting service each and every time.
During this year I have have travelled abroad with work, and contacted you for professional advice regarding my tax situation, to understand what is the best and safest way of managing my taxes. You have always been nothing less than fully approachable, supportive and helpful and have provided me with sound, legally competent and timely advice about my tax situation on every occasion.
Thanks to your advice, I have been able to manage my tax correctly and plan my times of work and return to the UK, in a way which works best for me and my family.
Thank you again for your professionalism and I will definitely be using your services in the future.

I contacted Nigel after reading an article in Taxation about EBTs. I liked the simplicity of the idea and how it involved working with the tax system rather than against it. The idea enabled me to reach a favourable EBT settlement with HMRC. I have subsequently used Nigel’s knowledge of R&D tax credits to help a manufacturing business that I am a director of. Once again, I am delighted by the outcome. I am keen for Nigel and Armstrong Watson to play a bigger role with a number of companies I am involved with.

I had a plan but I could not deliver on it myself and I could not employ this level of advice. It needs to be outsourced. All the advice given to date has helped my business and given me some freedom away from the day to day running. I now have a great machine which is working really well.
The value of this Blue process is priceless.

We have worked with Dave and Matt of Armstrong Watson for the last 12 months and now class them as part of BCS. Tony my business partner and I decided we needed to put together an advisory team, a group of people who can look from the outside in and have our and the companies best interests at heart.
Both Matt and Dave have a fantastic knack of pulling things out of you that you already know? They help you to approach issues and worries from alternative angles and push you to succeed in everything you do. You have to put the work in though, they don’t just tell you how to do it. This I believe is great for individuals personal development!!
I believe personally that I have grown and the company has grown in relation to our using Armstrong Watson as a part of the driving force for BCS. They sit in a prime position in our advisory team with our Marketing Company, Accountants etc and will continue to do so.
Dean Towers – Managing Director
We have wanted to develop ourselves and our business with a fresh approach - going in with an open mind, we have quickly gained a different perspective and we have started to change. There is a fascinating blend of gradual, slow, 'wait and see' adjustment and some decisive, quick, 'take the plunge' change...its exciting to be moving to a new way of thinking, building on all the good things we have and leaving some of the not so good things behind.
Mark Sugden Managing Director, John W. Laycock Ltd

Despite being the largest independent claims management company in Ireland, when we made the decision to move into legal services in England, we knew the process of applying to become an ABS could well be a time consuming and daunting task.
We wanted to make the ABS application process as smooth and efficient as possible from our point of view, and so decided to instruct the specialist legal sector team at Armstrong Watson to assist us with our application.
From our initial enquiry, and right throughout the process, I was impressed with the level of professional input and advice from Rosy Rourke and the team working with us.
The result was that our ABS application was approved very quickly, and we were very happy with the service that we received. I would recommend the team at Armstrong Watson to anyone else considering applying to become an ABS.
