Steve Roberts from Armstrong Watson assisted our parents in making tax efficient Wills. When our mother passed away in 2005 and then our father in 2011, Steve helped us on both occasions with the probate applications, dealing with the HMRC, setting up a trust fund, and more recently, winding up the trust. Steve was compassionate, professional and patient throughout, explaining how things had to be done and why. We felt very much supported by him and he made a difficult time much easier for us. We felt we were dealing with a friend and we would have no hesitation in picking up the phone to seek Steve’s advice in the future.
The service I received from Victoria was fantastic, 10/10. She pulled out all the stops to help me and went above and beyond to sort out the issues I had; I will be highly recommending Victoria and Armstrong Watson to anyone who requires an accountant and/or tax adviser.

Armstrong Watson helped us prepare and submit our P11Ds and PSA for the 2013/14 tax year. We found them to be knowledgeable in approach and efficient in execution.

'The Low Level Waste Repository (LLWR) is the UK’s national low level waste (LLW) disposal facility and located on the West Cumbrian coast approximately 7km south east of Sellafield.
On the 29 July 2007 LLW Repository Limited separated from the Sellafield site and became one of the first Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s (NDA) sites to be competed and become a stand alone Site Licence Company.
We appointed Armstrong Watson as our Research & Development (R&D) tax relief advisers due to their strong technical knowledge in this particular area of tax, and their willingness to respond to our tight deadlines in preparing our R&D reports. Their flexible approach and clear advice is of great value to LLWR and has assisted us in returning value for money to the NDA.
We highly recommend Armstrong Watson’s R&D tax services to any company undertaking R&D.'

We have been with Armstrong Watson for approximately 10 years. Armstrong Watson has handled both my dental practice accounts and the accounts for our rental houses. Since Graham has taken overall supervision in recent years we have benefited from a greatly improved service with a complete overview of our joint situation. We have always been treated with consideration and appreciate his friendly professionalism. We have felt that all our financial questions have been answered fully and promptly by Graham.

We were put in touch with Armstrong Watson by a colleague. Our first point of contact was Steve Roberts, a very knowledgeable professional. Following our initial meeting with Steve we decided that it was time to change our accountants. Armstrong Watson has helped our business immeasurably by restructuring it in a tax efficient way. They are experts, friendly and nothing ever seems too much trouble. All members of the various teams that we deal with on a daily basis are professional and nice. We can highly recommend them. Armstrong Watson are now our payroll, book-keeping, personal and business accountants!!
