The Armstrong Watson team took time to understand the business, our background, sectors of operation, aims and objectives as part of their engagement with us. As a result, the audit was conducted with understanding in an extremely efficient and professional manner.
Nicola Lister, Financial Controller NDL Software Limited
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.
Anthony Hill, CFO, Iportalis
Having worked with Armstrong Watson for two years now one of the key things they have delivered upon is communicating in a way that suits our PE backers. In particular their Audit Committee reporting and communication, including highlighting issues that may impact a future event so that we can address them now has been invaluable
Mike Holmes Finance Director Smart Search Limited

Jo Collin - Finance Manager, Cumbria CVS
Following our move to Armstrong Watson in 2017, the AW team was my first choice to support the launch of our new venture, providing clear commercial advice on the structuring and tax planning opportunities. Not just knowledgeable but commercial and fun to work with!
Having worked with Matt and his team at Armstrong Watson for the first time last year I have been particularly impressed by their responsiveness and proactivity as well as their breadth of knowledge. They always respond quickly and expertly with technical queries. Having previously worked with a larger firm, I found the audit process to be extremely well structured and efficient and the team were a pleasure to work with.
By listening to our needs and getting to know the business, Matt, Rhys and the team were able to offer us a different level of proactivity that we had not seen before from our previous advisers.
Jason Adlam - Chief Executive Officer, Harris CM
When changing independence rules in the Big 4 meant I had to outsource my consolidation I was nervous about using an independent firm. I needn’t have been. Simon has the experience of my audit lead in the Big 4 but the time to meet me face to face and work through it – he wasn’t just there
at the end but with me on the journey.
Anne Caudwell - Head of Finance, Giacom World Networks Limited
The relationship between Armstrong Watson and Simpson was initially established prior to the Management buy-out of the Simpson business, which is now some 25 years since and has proved to be a long and lasting quality relationship, developed primarily with the Audit and Tax teams who have supported us well through our business growth and succession.
We have also been able to take advantage and drive improvements and success through our business operations with the help of the Armstrong Watson Strategic Business Advice Service, which has acted as a catalyst to release the potential within our management team, and triggered further business development opportunities.
Ron & Beryl Gatenby - Directors, Simpson (York) Ltd
