Douglas has been pro-active and given me advice on risks to my business. I value the personal contact that I have with the Accountant who is responsible for supervising my preparation of my annual accounts.
Armstrong Watson is obviously a very professional business with a modern approach including regular circulation of its Agricultural publication, but it has also managed to retain its friendly approach.
I have been self employed for over 50 years using the services of accountants. This firm is quite simply the best I’ve had. I always deal with the same person, Ross Campbell. He is entirely efficient and dependable, but most importantly he understands and adapts to my personal circumstances with friendliness and endless good will. This is the genuine, old fashioned personal relationship that we all miss so much. I feel very lucky indeed to have Ross on my side.
Mr W J Muir
I am a Sole Trader supplying the agricultural/landscaping industry and was previously in partnership with my late father and we both were clients of Armstrong Watson. It was always my father's moto to hire the best professional financial and accountancy advice you can get and Armstrong Watson deliver this. I am not from the area and logistically it would be fair to say it may be easier to move to an accountant nearby, but I have been with Armstrong Watson all my business life and I’m confident I will remain a client as they provide such an outstanding service which is second to none.
Most of my dealings are with Douglas Murray, although I also deal with Ross Campbell. I cannot speak highly enough of the entire team as they are all experts in their field and always respond to any enquiry I may have promptly, clearly and concisely. They are all extremely approachable and I have a fantastic professional relationship especially with Douglas, whom I have known and dealt with for many years.
Nothing is ever too much trouble for any member of staff and I always feel at ease when posing questions/queries to them. Overall, they provide me with a first-class service which includes all my accountancy, financial, tax and pension affairs and I have complete faith and trust in the information and service they continue to provide me with. So, if you are looking for a fantastic company lo look after your financial affairs look no further than Armstrong Watson. They will look after you very well.

Starting up as sole trader was a bit daunting regarding accounts, tax and national insurance. Scott Henderson at Armstrong Watson in Dumfries made it a lot easier and less daunting, explaining all aspects such as registering with HMRC, how best to keep my accounting records, to doing my tax return. If I had a problem or questions I could phone or email them to him and he would get right back to me with an answer or explain anything I needed clarified. Nothing is a problem to Scott; like all the other staff at the Dumfries branch he is approachable, friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend them to anyone who needs accountancy work done.'

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.

I have done the payroll at Dumfries & Galloway College for 11 years now, all of them through Armstrong Watson. We have a payroll of approximately 270 staff and use the front end service through the bureau.
We continue to work with Armstrong Watson as the service we receive is always of a high standard and there is always support available. The front end service allows us the flexibility to process our own payroll data without having to worry about producing payslip or HMRC reporting at year end.
Above all, the entire service is such great value for money which is hard to beat these days!
