After twenty six years trading as a partnership, we decided to change status to a limited company.
We had no idea how to go about this process. We were guided through it with the help of Armstrong Watson, in particular Sharon Ryan, Sally Jones and Stephen Esgate.
We would like to thank you wholeheartedly. Without all your hard work and understanding of our business and what we wanted, this transition would have been traumatic. It was a seamless transition thanks to the professionalism, efficiency and meticulous attention to detail that you exercised.
I would recommend Armstrong Watson and in particular your team, to any organisation that was thinking of changing their trading status.

We were recently left with a very complex family estate to unravel.
Helen was able to guide us through the process of IHT submission to HMRC and help unravel a number of complex tax issues in a calm and professional manner.
Helen answered all of our questions promptly and provided clear guidance as to the individual steps we needed to take, making the whole process a lot easier and simpler to deal with.
Helen's work meant we did not have to engage a solicitor to close the estate, thus saving expensive legal costs and time.
Helen also brought in other experts (Trust & Investment Funds) to advise us as and when needed.
At all times we found Helen easy and pleasant to deal with no matter how stressed we were with having to deal with what was essentially an emotional roller coaster ride.
The estate took over two years to close out, but without Helen's support it would still be going on now.
I would recommend Helen and Armstrong Watson without any hesitation or reservation; they are the “go to source” for all financial issues and advice in my opinion.

Having been recommended by a friend, I was certain that Ross would do a great job. But I have been more impressed than I could imagine with the level of professionalism that Ross portrays.
He brings a level of personality to things and I feel that I can send a quick email to Ross any time and I will get a very swift, personal and friendly reply. I look forward to many more years of working with Ross. I would most certainly recommend Ross to my friends.
The most important qualities I value in my relationship with Armstrong Watson are trust, efficiency and knowing that when necessary. I am satisfied they can help with any personal financial matter, or business matter if required.
I am always very pleased with the manner in which my tax return is completed, on time and without any fuss, but knowing that they are always available for further help and advice if necessary. I would recommend Armstrong Watson to my friends.

The biggest thing I value in my relationship with Ross Campbell at Armstrong Watson is the ease of contact, either in person, by e-mail, phone or letter. The staff at the Dumfries office are very helpful, friendly and welcoming. I feel that Armstrong Watson are very professional, and give good advice when I require it.

Thank you for all the work that you have carried out on my behalf and for the careful and thorough way in which you explained to me proceeds that seemed to be totally alien and extremely complicated to me. I really needed that help. I'm delighted that I continued the family connection with Armstrong Watson who my father was with for so many years.
Continuity, courtesy, efficiency. We are very impressed with the speed you deal with our affairs, it is impressive you are so consistent
1-to-1 relationship with Steven, a personal touch is much appreciated. We have a personal relationship and Steven has a ‘friendly’ attitude.
Armstrong Watson were professional, knowledgeable and skillfully guided us through the complicated process of buying a business. I would happily recommend them to another business looking for help.

I contacted Armstrong Watson as I had some tax implications that i needed to have a further understanding of. These tax implications were complex, due to the nature in which a property holding company I was a shareholder in, was established. A number of my fellow shareholders also attended the meeting, where we received beneficial advice on our Capital Gains Tax planning in preparation for the sale of the company. The advice received significantly helped the business and shareholders effectively plan our sale from a tax efficient perspective, ensuring that we fully understood the process involved.
Additionally, we also received further advice from Lorraine on loan interest relief payments, where she acted on our behalf to recover these substantial monies.
As a result of the clear, precise and beneficial advice, my wife and I will continue to use the services of Armstrong Watson.
