Nicki Hutchinson has worked with me for over 10 years. I have great confidence in Nicki, and the excellent advice she provides. This advice is delivered in plain English with precision and clarity. Nicki is always available and completes tasks within deadlines. Nicki is also always willing to help.
I followed Nicki (metaphorically) when she changed firms and I am pleased whole-heartedly to recommend Nicki.
When we set out to find a new audit provider in 2017, we were looking for a company that would not only get to know our organisation well but become a true partner in the process. Throughout the discussion and tender process, the team at Armstrong Watson really sought to understand our needs and to look at how our Trust operated. At all stages the quality of communication was first class. It made it a very simple choice to select them for a 3-year contract.
Armstrong Watson delivered a comprehensive audit service with dedicated and consistent staff. They worked closely to design audit schedules that didn’t disturb the day-to-day operation of the Trust and were able to provide additional service for DfE grant audits and VAT work. Each audit cycle was completed on schedule and had very clear outcomes. There was always a detailed report that the Trust Board could easily review and constructive actions that the Trust executive could lead on.
Our partnership with Armstrong Watson allowed us to have confidence in the audit process, clarity in what we needed to do next to further improve and a strong collegiate working relationship built on consistency and professionalism.

Since commencement of the Covid-19 lockdown, Armstrong Watson proactively engaged with me and my dental business, providing robust financial advice for both. This has been a stressful 12 months but knowing I could contact Morag at any time with any financial queries has been a big help to me.

Asite are a technology business with a global structure and in 2020 appointed Armstrong Watson as auditor and advisor to our group of companies.
We were initially looking for a responsive and experienced partner to support us through the statutory audit process but we have found Armstrong Watson very proactive to support us on a much wider basis. From an audit perspective the team were very knowledgeable and great to work with, delivering the audit on time, in budget and completely remotely. However Armstrong Watson are really adding value with their strategic tax advice around areas such as company valuations, share options and R&D tax credits.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the team at Armstrong Watson
Tony Pickworth, Finance Director, Asite Solutions Limited
Completing the audit against a COVID 19 backdrop the Armstrong Watson team showed a pragmatic approach to auditing both going concern and impairment, giving clear communication on what information they needed and why. This was done in a way that supported the management team and wider Board to have everything signed and delivered on time and within our governance structure.
