Testimonials

We have done some great work for our clients, but don’t just take our word for it… have a look and see what our clients have to say about us.

Big Daily Deal Company Chester

Following completion of my Accounts and Tax Returns I would like to thank Steve Greensill of Pursglove & Brown.

I met Steve several months ago and was impressed with his knowledge and his approach to all things tax related. As a busy working mum with two children, it made life a little easier that Steve was able to visit me at my home to sort out my Accounts. As a result I decided to take the step and move from my current accountants on the Wirral to Pursglove & Brown, which has been an extremely wise and cost effective move.

Steve has not only managed to save me hundreds of pounds on my projected accountancy fees, but has also saved me thousands of pounds on my tax bill.

I can not thank you enough, and would recommend your services to all my friends and colleagues.

I would just like to say how much I hate the chore of doing my Accounts, and to thank you very much for making it ‘an experience of a lifetime’ !!

The sense of humour you bring to the process is sadly lacking from most accountants, but this does not disguise the professional quality of the advice you bring in handling the services provided to me.

You have managed to take control of my Accounts and Returns from another accountant and submit my next VAT Return within a very short period of time. In addition, your advice regarding the structure of my business to enable me to be more competitive was advice that I had not received from my previous accountant, and you have proceeded with with the minimum amount of action required from me.

I look forward to many years of more tax saving and accounting advice for my businesses, and I will be recommending your company to others without hesitation.

Trevalyn Estates

I was first introduced to Pursglove & Brown by a mutual business associate at a time when we were seeking to change our Accountants. We were unhappy with the service we were receiving from one of the middle range firms, and Pursglove & Brown was included on a list of possible alternatives.

We finally decided to go with them, and have since had no reason to regret our decision.

Matthew's of Chester

I have personally known Norman Pursglove, Senior Partner, since we were at school together, and he has been my accountant/bookkeeper for the last five years, offering excellent professional advise delivered quickly and with attention to detail, and is always available to help with any queries.

Pursglove & Brown is a firm I could highly recommend to my business contacts and friends.

TC Matthew

Oliver and Co. Quality Solicitors

I am pleased to take this opportunity to give a testimonial for the work which your firm has carried out incidental to the disposal of Ambient House at Knowsley Industrial Estate.

This was a huge complex job requiring tax advice of a very technical kind. The job included a complicated option arrangement between the Buyer and Seller which gave rise to complex capital tax issues. Without the assistance and advice given by your firm in a professional and efficient manner, I am certain that the deal would never have got off the ground.

I have no hesitation in recommending your firm and intend to do so whenever I have an opportunity.

David Sewell

Barnhill Marketing

I am writing to express my thanks for your help with the recent conversion of Barnhill Marketing from sole trader status through to the formation of a limited company.

In fact your assistance generally over the past two years has been of great help to me. With Pursglove & Brown there is very much a personal element to the service which is very welcome to smaller organisations like my own.

I look forward to your continued support in the future as my business grows.

Chris Palin Architects

I have recently sought the advice of Pursglove & Brown regarding my impending position as a Director with SBS Design Ltd. Pursglove & Brown highlighted the areas of importance, long term benefits and potential pitfalls of buying into an established practice that is owned by two other Directors. I attended two meetings with John prior to making a verbal agreement to purchase shares in the company. It was through his diligence and advice that gave me the encouragement and confidence to make an acceptable offer and I would like to thank Pursglove & Brown for their patience, advice and understanding.

I have recommended Pursglove & Brown  for their expertise and advice on such matters regarding Limited Companies and tax matters. They are very approachable, welcoming and keen to offer their best advice.

Thank you Pursglove & Brown

Mrs S Clark, Headmistress

Utility Warehouse

Pursglove & Browns advice and support when submitting my first significant Self Assessment Tax Return was invaluable.

During an initial meeting Steve Greensill clearly explained what needed to be done, and what I could and should be claiming for as a self employed business owner.

His team handled the processing and submission of my accounts efficiently and without issue making it a stress free process, resulting in a rebate from the tax man, which is always nice!

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steve and the team at Pursglove & brown and look forward to developing our relationship as my business grows.

Tim Polding

I am writing to thank you and to provide testimony for the excellent work which you have carried out in relation to my personal tax return.

I am conscious that dealing with my personal tax affairs have been less than straightforward over the last two to three years, as a result of the change to my financial circumstances and the sources of income received over that period.

You immediately appreciated the level of concern and uncertainty which this was causing me and went out of your way to clear up any confusion on my part and to put me at ease.

This holistic approach to the service which you offer to your clients combined with your demonstrable expertise, experience and friendly manner reassured me that I had come to the right place for assistance.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends, family, colleagues and clients given the commitment to high standards of service which you demonstrated in this instance.

Town Roofing Ltd

I want to thank you for the assistance you have provided the above client over the last twelve months.

Chris, the company Director and his wife Vicky are very grateful for the support and advice you have given them. Some of the particular services that they found very helpful were:

* Arranging evening appointments at their house to suit them

* Going to Liverpool with them for discussions with their previous accountant

* Dealing with correspondence from HM Revenue and Customs in a timely and efficient manner

* Providing ongoing support and advice to Chris and Vicky

Chris and Vicky found Pursglove & Brown very approachable and took calls from them on mobile phones in the evenings. They found this very helpful as they were only able to contact their previous accountant on the office landline or by email during office hours.

GJ Cummings Cert PFS
Director/Independent Financial Adviser

Premier Financial Protection

I write today to express myself and my clients gratitude in the way you conduct your business.

You are aware that we have several mutual clients and in conducting business with them access our accounts of their financial affairs is essential. In several instances it has been a requirement that their accounts, many of which were even unfinished were required by lenders within hours. In all these cases you have appeared to move heaven and earth to complete this work with little or no prior notice in advance from the client.

Fine service and surpassing customer expectations is often unrecognised though as you have never failed to impress I feel I must write to show mine and our clients appreciation of your professionalism.

I hope this meets with your approval and look forward to a continued professional relationship in the future.

JG Cummings

My son Gerry told me that Pursglove & Brown would be willing to help me sort out my tax return.

I have struggled with one aspect of my annual tax return for some years, however the most recent tax year 2010/2011 was worst of all. I wrote letter after letter to HMRC but could get no satisfactory answer.

Pursglove & Brown agreed to see me at their offices and completed a letter on my behalf on 12th January 2012. Within 2 weeks I got a full clear and comprehensive report on my upto date tax position and a refund of several hundred pounds. But most of all piece of mind and an end to countless letters and phone calls.

JG Cummings

Black and White Management Consultants

I contacted Pursglove & Brown on 27th January 2012 for support with self-assessment tax returns. The request I left them with very little time as it was close to the deadline of 31st January.

However, Pursglove & Brown turned around my request with minimum fuss and maximum professionalism and efficiency. The tax returns were completed on time and without and issues.

I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone needed quick and discrete advice regarding tax matters of any nature and I will be using them again.

Dave Tilston

I write to thank you and let you know how happy we are with the recent service you provided for us in which you did a fantastic job in sorting out some overdue tax returns.

After some personal problems a couple of years ago, we got into difficulties which lead to us having three outstanding tax returns, payment demands for thousands of pounds and many sleepless nights.

You came to our house with complete professionalism and made us feel at ease with the situation.

When you gave our paperwork back to me with a cheque for over £3000.00 of monies that was owed to us, that was an amazing feeling and we cant thank you enough.

Given the high standard of service we received, we would have no hesitation in recommending you to family, friends, colleagues and clients.

Leverage Solutions Ltd

I am writing to thank Pursglove & Brown who have acted as accountants for Leverage Solutions Limited since July 2010 providing a number of services including:

* Bookkeeping
* Payroll
* Construction Industry Scheme returns
* Annual Accounts
* Finance Director function at Board meetings

At a construction company our skills are focused on building, civil engineering and fit-out works and the support we have received during the last 18 months has been exceptional allowing us to grow as a business despite the recession we have been through.

The visiting bookkeeping service has allowed our staff to focus on what we do best and the FD function provided at Board meetings has given clarity and interpretation to the financial information being produced.

Pursglove & Brown are always available to quickly answer questions and the overall company service has been exceptional especially with the training of our staff on the use of the SAGE software.

I can confidently recommend Pursglove & Brown to anyone requiring accounting support. They are in my opinion experts in their field with a service that goes beyond the statutory minimum.

Arboreal Tree Surgery

Pursglove & Brown recently submitted my tax return for the tax year 2010 – 2011. I have always tended to leave admin and accounts until the last minute, and this year I was worse than usual! I asked Pursglove & Brown if he would be able to submit my tax return just two weeks before the deadline.

Pursglove & Brown were very professional and assured me that they should be able to do this despite the very short notice. John helped me through the process and jogged my memory when necessary. I would like to carry on using Pursglove & Brown as they do seem to understand very well how tricky it is to balance so many different matters and I am sure this is the beginning of a good professional relationship.

I would be delighted to recommend Pursglove & Brown as they seem to be genuinely enthusiastic about business and accountancy.
