Client Testimonials

Starting a company from scratch is daunting enough and just like me, many people are often most concerned and intimidated about the legal, tax and accounting aspects of their new venture. After just one visit with Armstrong Watson, John Booth was able to put my mind at rest and deliver all the services and help I would need, at great rates and with a team of willing and helpful people behind him. Nothing is too much trouble, they are patient, knowledgeable and were able to put the right processes in place in no time, taking away all the painful aspects like VAT Registration, as well as payroll and bookkeeping administration. As an SME we rely heavily on the support of people who have the right expertise and experience to hold our hands through the business accounting process and our dealings with Armstrong Watson have always been reassuringly professional.

Tony Walker, Managing Director, Delta Bloc UK Ltd

Sharon comes to Penrith Auction Mart every month to complete our monthly management accounts. I find her very professional, and she works accurately at all times. Sharon has created a number of bespoke Sage reports on request for Penrith Auction Mart to improve the presentation of figures for internal purposes. We all find her most pleasant in her approach and we are pleased to be able to speak highly of her.

David T Crowden, Chairman, Penrith & District Farmers Mart LLP

Just a quick note to thank you for your ongoing support. I have always appreciated your straightforward, relevant, trustworthy and to the point advice drawn from your broad industry specific and in-depth understanding of my business and personal financial affairs.

Coupled with the consistently friendly and helpful face to face contact I have experienced throughout the partnership, I would strongly recommend Armstrong Watson to anyone seeking a trusted financial advisor.

Tim Ellis

Steven has been invaluable guiding us through the difficult process of retirement from farming, his knowledge on taxation and Capital Gains is excellent and if you have a sudden problem that crops up he will soon find an answer to your query, if he's tied up in meetings he will always get back to you as soon as he can with reassurance even if it's outside office hours.

Mr & Mrs Soulsby

I have retired from my self-employed consultancy business and had my final meeting today with Tony to wind everything up. I just wanted you know how much I have appreciated Armstrong Watson's exceptional services over the past 10 years. Tony has been absolutely brilliant supporting my business and explaining carefully every aspect of the financial implications of self-employment. His friendly, optimistic personality has been a bonus in addition to his efficiency and superb organisational skills. I have always been kept well informed about budget changes and any new requirements on a regular basis.

Once again many thanks to you and all of your colleagues in Hexham who have been a tremendous help and a credit to your company because they take a genuine interest in their clients.

Steve Roberts and James Fry from Armstrong Watson have been my accountants for five years. I find them both very knowledgable in all aspects of the accounting for my dental practice and am appreciative of their patience when explaining the different options open to me .

I would heartily recommend them to any of my dental/medical colleagues.

The team at Armstrong Watson combine technical ability, years of experience and a deep understanding of the business to add real value. The level of personal but professional service we get from Rohan Day has led to a strong partnership developing.

Rohan has acted for us for approximately 15 years and I consider him to be a key business partner and trusted advisor.
