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.

Ursula Chilton

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.

My relationship with John Booth gives me the ability to pick up the phone with a tricky issue or query and have it resolved quickly – it’s really appreciated. The knowledge that, as a compact business, we have an extensive support team at Armstrong Watson taking care of the important accounting and procedural issues enables me to get on with delivering our projects and growing the business. A massive bonus is that we get on like a house on fire!

Phil Cable, CFK

Starting a company from scratch is daunting enough and just like me, many people are often most concerned and intimidated about the legal, tax and accounting aspects of their new venture. After just one visit with Armstrong Watson, John Booth was able to put my mind at rest and deliver all the services and help I would need, at great rates and with a team of willing and helpful people behind him. Nothing is too much trouble, they are patient, knowledgeable and were able to put the right processes in place in no time, taking away all the painful aspects like VAT Registration, as well as payroll and bookkeeping administration. As an SME we rely heavily on the support of people who have the right expertise and experience to hold our hands through the business accounting process and our dealings with Armstrong Watson have always been reassuringly professional.

Sharon comes to Penrith Auction Mart every month to complete our monthly management accounts. I find her very professional, and she works accurately at all times. Sharon has created a number of bespoke Sage reports on request for Penrith Auction Mart to improve the presentation of figures for internal purposes. We all find her most pleasant in her approach and we are pleased to be able to speak highly of her.

Just a quick note to thank you for your ongoing support. I have always appreciated your straightforward, relevant, trustworthy and to the point advice drawn from your broad industry specific and in-depth understanding of my business and personal financial affairs.
