Changing accountants is always a major decision and one not to be taken lightly. When our accountant announced his retirement in 2013 we were forced to make a move. As a Rural Estate, we were very keen to engage a firm who had both an understanding of and an interest in Agriculture. Peter Molyneux and his team came very highly recommended by our agricultural bank manager at the time. On the initial meeting with Peter, Keith and Andrew, we felt instantly at ease with them. Nostell Estate comprises of 3 farms along with residential and commercial lettings and on a day to day basis we deal predominately with Peter Molyneux or Keith Johnston. As our trust and respect has grown for Peter and Keith, they have become increasingly more involved with major projects, succession planning and general business advice. I now consider them an integral part of my team at Nostell Estate and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

'I was very 'raw' in a sense, not having started up my own business before. Armstrong Watson told me everything I needed to know and held my hand throughout the process. By introducing me to other clients who had been through the same process, it gave me confidence in my abilities and that little push I needed to make the business succeed. I trust the team implicitly and could not have done it without them. I never thought I could become good friends with my accountant but it has happened and I’m pleased that I’m with such a forward thinking firm.'
