Client Testimonials

I have done the payroll at Dumfries & Galloway College for 11 years now, all of them through Armstrong Watson.  We have a payroll of approximately 270 staff and use the front end service through the bureau.

We continue to work with Armstrong Watson as the service we receive is always of a high standard and there is always support available.  The front end service allows us the flexibility to process our own payroll data without having to worry about producing payslip or HMRC reporting at year end.

Above all, the entire service is such great value for money which is hard to beat these days!

Mabyn Goodfellow, School Business Manager, Inglewood Junior School

Just to say thank you again to you and your team for the great efforts to get the &co accounts completed to meet the 31 July filing deadline. I understand we will be having a final Trustees meeting in September to finalise the wind down. I know Alison and Chris were very impressed by the service they have received from Armstrong Watson and I hope they keep up this relationship when they start up the new CIC.

Helen Dobson, Financial Director, Opera North

Armstrong Watson have audited and advised Mumtaz Food Industries through a major period of high growth. Armstrong Watson have been available at all times to help provide focus to the management and dealt very professionally with difficult situations. Their support has been invaluable and I am particularly happy to see that their enthusiasm and commitment to getting a job done, (even the annual audit) still remains after a 12 year relationship.

Rab Nawaz khan Akbar, Director, Mumtaz Food Industries Limited

Armstrong Watson have been accountants, auditors and tax advisors to Cartonage for over 15 years. During a difficult trading period we took the hard decision to move our affairs over to another firm of accountants but having experienced Armstrong Watsons support and excellent advice we reappointed the firm at our earliest opportunity.
The level of service and Partner involvement was a key factor in us moving back.  Outside of the audit they have been invaluable in advising us on our group structure, minimising our corporate tax and assisting with a number of acquisitions.

Philip Webster , Chairman, Cartonage Limited

Helen Thornley & the team were diligent at every step of the process & patiently answered all my queries at every step, which was important given I approached this process with virtually no technical knowledge of the topic at all.  Most importantly they achieved a successful outcome including a positive ruling from HMRC.

Pete McMahon

We just wanted to say, we have recently had investment and pension advice from Armstrong Watson and are very pleased with the service.

Our advisor Phil Jackson always taking time to listen and assess the right product for us. He always explains any questions we have and we never feel rushed. The speed and efficiency of all the documentation coming through has been faultless and we feel we can totally rely on them.

Thank you Armstrong Watson for your help. It completely takes the pressure off us.
