We brought Armstrong Watson in as auditors and tax advisors and have found them to be excellent. The teams are very professional, knowledgeable and approachable particularly where we have been conducting some complex transactions where advice on accounting and tax were required. A common sense approach to things has been most welcome and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

We moved our family farming business accounts to Armstrong Watson, with Andrew Robinson and his team who have looked after us ever since. From our perspective, it was a very positive move, and with Andrew’s knowledge and understanding of the agricultural industry on every level, we feel very well supported. Our meetings with Andrew are always constructive and helpful and allow for us to move our business forward.
In any business surrounding yourselves with a strong team of people who understand, have expert knowledge, and can give great advice is crucial, we feel this is now where we are. We would be happy to recommend Andrew and the team at Armstrong Watson.

Matthew and Caroline provided key evidence in helping the Defendant to establish evidential discrepancies and forgeries that led to the Claimant abandoning his £2.7m claim in full. Their detailed analysis of the Claimant’s bank statements across several accounts was crucial to achieving this excellent result for the insurer client.

Donnelly Group had the pleasure of working with Michelle on updating all the accountants on current tax and vat legislation related to the motor trade. A complex area for accountants new to the motor trade. From the start, Michelle demonstrated a high level of professionalism and expertise in the field, taking the time to truly understand the unique needs of our business, the differences between Northern Ireland and GB, and the challenges we faced. Throughout the training, Michelle provided exceptional service, taking the time to answer any questions and illustrate this with real life examples. All the attendees appreciated the level of detail that can be utilised in their work and advising others. Armstrong Watson’s attention to detail and thoroughness in their work were truly impressive, and we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.
Not only did Michelle deliver an excellent course, but she also made the entire process stress-free and easy to understand. I would highly recommend Armstrong Watson to anyone looking for professional TAX services and support for their business.
Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication!
