Andrew Mitchell’s direct line is one of the few telephone numbers I know by heart. It is a number I dial regularly, whenever I have any question on any aspect of taxation. More often than not he is at his desk and picks up immediately, but if not I never have to wait long for him to return the call. This level of service is important to me.
My company, Brook Taverner Limited, and I have being working with Andrew and the tax team at Armstrong Watson Skipton for close to 20 years now. During this time he has acted and advised on a wide variety of corporate and personal tax issues, from the relatively straightforward to the wildly complicated. At all times his research into the matter in question is very thorough and the advice given is always balanced and sensible. This common sense approach suits me and as a result any decision I have to make then becomes a simple one.
My relationship with Andrew and Armstrong Watson is one that has certainly served me well in the past and will, no doubt, continue to do so for quite a few years to come.
Andrew Booth, Director, Brook Taverner Limited
I have known Andrew as our tax adviser for over 20 years and during that time he has provided me with excellent business advice and helped in the decision making process and expansion of our successful family textile business. This has recently included advice and assistance in claiming substantial Research & Development tax reliefs, taking advantage of the ground-breaking technologies we have recently invested in.
He has also provided valuable tax advice relating to my accommodation and wedding venue business in Scotland, offsetting losses in the early years of business advantageously to minimise my personal tax liabilities.
David Whitehead, Managing Director, H&C Whitehead Limited
We were the subject of a serious tax enquiry into both the company and the directors, concerning a fraud, with a real risk of criminal prosecution. The enquiry lasted for almost three years and throughout this period Andrew Mitchell was our rock, providing valuable advice and support to us in a calm and extremely professional manner and eventually negotiated a satisfactory financial settlement with HMRC. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew and Armstrong Watson to another client in a similar predicament.
