  • Fantastic Team! "Have used Matt and the team for 2 years and have had great support and expertise from every member of staff we have dealt with. More recently Matt introduced us to QuickBooks and I had excellent training delivered by Emma who was patient and knowledgeable. Such a friendly openly helpful team, thanks to Chris for help with our VAT when we were registered and to Kim who manages our payroll & of course Matt himself"
    Horwell Consultancy Ltd
  • One word - Brilliant! "I couldn't recommend Matt and his team at Tax Shop Accountants high enough! I've recently switched to the Tax Shop and it has a real revelation on how I should do my tax affairs. I am very impressed with Quickbooks and using it has totally transformed the way I look at and do my expense claims. Great bundle of people who provide a friendly and accurate service. The service is smooth, efficient and completely transparent."
    360 Computing Ltd
  • "I met Emma for my Quickbooks Training this morning and she was absolutely first class. Professional, engaging, helpful, a very good trainer, and went through the screens in a methodical and thorough way. I have since had reason to call for some additional advice and she was extremely helpful. A credit to their business and this is the best decision I've made this year to place my business with this firm."
    Alan S from Wellington
  • "Over all an excellent service over the last four years. I love the prompt replies to emails, even at weekends! A no nonsense approach to dealing with queries with sound direct advice, will not hold back from giving me advise even when it may be something I don't want to hear. IE tells me as it is and not what I would like it to be."
    Mike from Wellington
  • "Moving from A+ Accountants to Tax Shop Accountants is one of the best decisions i ever made & not just for saving thousands of pounds. After talking to Matt for just 30 minutes we learned more about accounts figures than what we learned in the past decade. Working with Emma was overwhelmingly first class in her professional guidance teaching me how to use Quick-books. Having back up support & communication is a must for any company when there is a problem or query. Having Matt & Emma supporting this is outstanding. Thank you Emma for building up my confidence using Quick-books. I always felt comfortable working with such a professional extremely talented person."
    Andy - ADM Furniture Ltd
  • "Fantastic assistance provided all the time when needed., I couldn't have done it with out the use of Matt and the team, special thanks to Emma, All a great work force and happy to help."
    Tom from Domestic Sprinklers
  • "I have worked with the Tax Shop for 5 years during which time I have set up a new business running a coffee shop. The management of this is demanding so knowing that I have a team of people keeping an eye on everything financial and making sure every thing is done on time is very reassuring. Their pragmatic approach is reassuring as is the flexible way they are able to work. Last year, under their recommendations, I switched to QuickBooks and this has made things even easier. Emma is brilliant in the way she set up the system and trained me over the phone. Paula, who pulls all the accounts together for my annual returns, is there to ensure everything is in line. It just one big thing to not have to worry about."
    Coffeewoods - London
  • Matthew and his team have been our accountants for many years now. They always provide my company with a friendly, personal service and are extremely approachable with any advice or guidance we seek. Matthew fully understands the needs of my company and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
    Jim Gough, Gough Aerials, Hythe, Kent
  • We approached Matt in November 2011 to help us with our business finances. Initially we needed advice on VAT and tax related issues. Matt helped us immensely and as a result has become our Accountant. It is such a relief to have assistance and help on matters that we have limited understanding in and the reassurance that Matt takes control. It has provided us with a new lease of confidence as we take our business forward. I would highly recommend Matt and The Tax Shop. Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert
    Michala Levett, Levett Surveying Ltd, Taunton
  • A big thankyou to Matt and his staff at the Tax Shop in Wellington for their professionalism, helpfulness and general niceness with all the help that I have received over the last year with the transfer of accountants and with all the required paperwork for HMRC. The tax shop has been more than helpful at every step and I would not hesitate to recommend them in the future.
    Paul Daley, Daltech Ltd Hemyock, Devon
  • I have found, since I have moved to Wellington, The Tax Shop to be all that I had hoped for. The service is prompt, accurate and takes away the stress of completing my tax form. No longer do I need to rummage through my papers in an attempt to provide a cohesive set of figures in order to satisfy the HMRC. Matt and his assistant, Kim are excellent. They are both pleasant to deal with and they quickly gained my trust with regards my financial affairs at a reasonable price, a price well worth paying if you wish to eliminate the annual panic of dealing with HMRC.
    Dr Andy Mottershead, Wellington, Somerset
