  • 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
  • "So far the service I have received is fantastic, all questions answered immediately and good information given. The QuickBooks training was delivered in a lovely way over the telephone, thank you."
    Applied Geophysics 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
  • "Emma has been advising me through QuickBooks over the phone. Her guidance has been brilliant, she always returns my calls and talks through any queries I have had which gives me confidence. Nothing is too much trouble, thank you Emma."

  • "After decades of PAYE, when I finally went freelance, the world of invoices and tax were a daunting prospect. Having Matt and his team help me though has made things so much easier. I really enjoy using Quickbooks and having the help and support from Emma has been invaluable. She has regularly undone the mess I've made of my accounts and then spent time over the phone, showing and teaching me how to use Quickbooks properly. Without the support of Matt and Emma, I dread to think the mess I would have made of my accounts!!"
    Kenneth Lloyd - London
  • "Emma completed my QuickBooks training over the phone. Since then she has been invaluable. Emma answers my queries promptly and is always on hand should I need any further information."
    Hawk Technical
  • "I have used Matt and his team for the past 4 years and always found them to be professional and approachable. I was advised to use Quickbooks and although sceptical at first once Emma had guided through the set up and been on hand to give me advice and guidance whenever needed the amount of time saved is phenomenal. Also Quickbooks gives a much more professional look to my company invoices and other paperwork. All in all a very good experience."
    Ian from O.S.A.T Ltd
  • "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
  • Matt and his team have been great over the past 3 years in providing me the support and reassurance around tax, payroll and IR35 issues. Emma has been extremely supportive during the transition to Quickbooks and is always there if I have a question. Great people. Many thanks

  • Paula has taken charge of our accounts since last year 2014. We must say we can't fault her in any way. She's very reliable, quick to respond to any queries we may have. We only wish she was in charge of our accounts when we started our company 8 yrs ago. - 17/03/2015

  • As a sole trader paying C.I.S. Tax, I have worked with Gail and her highly professional team in Bridgwater for several years. I have always received an exceptional service, with that added personal touch. Tax Shop have always reacted promptly and provide an outstanding value for money service. 22/07/2014

  • I have to say that in the short time I have been with Matt and the Staff, they have advised, reassured and made running my business accounts a dream, in other words I dreamt of the hassle free that I have not experienced with my other bookkeeper/accountant who I was with for many years. It’s a joy to know my finance is being dealt with smoothly and efficiently and so professionally without a worry in the world, thanks a million guys. - 10/07/2014
    Ian Goodman, Secure Associates Ltd
  • Having recently started a small business my wife and I needed advice and support with all financial aspects in relation to self assessment / Inland Revenue / income tax liability, tax allowances etc. After research we contacted a number of accountants via the internet and visited the offices of a number in the Somerset area. For numerous reasons we did not feel they were right for us. Finally I approached Tax Shop accountants in Bridgwater and made an appointment to visit. I was greeted by the practice manager Gail who listened as I explained what we were looking for. It was immediately obvious that the Tax Shop knew their stuff! Not only did they know it, they could communicate it clearly to us lesser mortals. We have found the Tax Shop to be friendly, professional and efficient. This has enabled us to concentrate on the business, knowing the accountancy is in good hands. Being able to pick up the phone and just ask a question is great, and knowing you have a team of professionals supporting you is priceless. I highly recommend the Tax Shop, and am happy to be contacted directly to confirm. - 08/07/2014
    Steve Maloney, Delicious Fish and Chips, Bridgwater
  • When first establishing our business it was essential to draw in a team of experts who we could depend on for first class advice. We found Tax Shop accountants the ideal company for us. As a new venture, they were able to offer diverse information on setting up a new business. In addition to which, their payroll services and tax advice has been more than welcome. We would recommend Matt and his team to anyone seeking a personal relationship with a friendly and reliable company. - 04/07/2014

I totally recommend Tax Shop accountants and once you have used them, I can assure you that you will never go anywhere else! Thank you Guys! - 04/07/2014

  • I have recently moved my accountancy work to Tax Shop Accountants. From day one I have been nothing but impressed, no other firm I have used before have been so dedicated to looking after my accountancy needs. They are true tax professionals looking at the very best ways to save the overpayment of tax and I have certainly benefited from their advice. I have already had my Son sign up with them and he is as impressed as I am. I would recommend Tax Shop Accountants to everybody. - 01/07/2014

  • Tax shop accountants have been a great help to myself and my Limited business over the last few years. Their good advice and service has allowed me to concentrate on running and growing my business, confidentially knowing all my accounts and tax affairs are being taken care of by this professional, efficient and happy team at their Bridgwater office.

  • Matt and his team have provided a first-class service, setting up my limited company and advising on tax efficient ways of running it. Emails are replied to usually within the hour, they are always friendly and knowledgeable and the prices are reasonable. I like the fixed fee approach they offer. I can't recommend them enough.

  • I have found the Tax Shop to be efficient, helpful and above all professional. Matt Parrett and Kim Harcombe have taken care of my specialist business with the utmost excellence and ease. The advice has been second-to-none compared to some of my colleagues in a similar situation. As a result, I would have no qualms in recommending them to any business due to their positive approach.

    Jim Gough, Gough Aerials, Hythe, Kent
  • I recently launched a second company and for ease I wanted to bring all my corporate and personal Tax affairs into one basket using a local service. During my first meeting with Matt he made suggestions as to how I could be running my businesses more tax efficiently and gained me a tax rebate on my previously submitted personal tax returns. Matt and his team offer a professional and friendly service that is both competitively priced and responsive; I usually get a reply to e-mails within the hour.
    Chris Wild, CW Technical Services Ltd, Hythe, Kent
  • I was fed up changing accountants each year trying to find one that suited me and my needs. Finally i found the tax shop, and an accountant that was friendly, very efficient and one that thought outside the box. I needed someone to offer suggestions to me, not the other way around, someone that could deal with all of my needs, someone that i could rely on. The tax shop ticked all of my boxes, now i can relax knowing that my finances are being taken care of. They truly are fantastic.

The advice given by Matt and his team is first class and has benefitted me greatly in my striving to run my company as efficiently as possible.The Tax Shop was a key part of the formation process of my company – without it I would not be trading or continue to be able to do so!

    Luke Gough , Recruitment, London
  • 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
  • We have employed Matt and his team at The Tax Shop for a number of years whilst running our own business. We chose The Tax Shop due to its fresh modern high street shop front location, not what is perceived of accountants as a rule and have to state that we were not disappointed. Both Matt and all his staff were not only friendly and approachable but most importantly efficient. All our tax affairs were dealt with both professionally and for a reasonable fee. In conclusion we would highly recommend their services.
    Trevor McLellan McLellan, Construction Ltd Folkestone, Kent

    PJ & A Luard, Wellington, Somerset
  • We came across The Tax Shop by chance when we called into to pick their brains. Matt was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We were completely new to setting up a new Limited Company and Matt's expert knowledge was just what we needed! He gave us all our options and explained the pro's and con's thoroughly. Subsequently he became our accountant and has proven extremely beneficial. All the staff at The Tax Shop are approachable, friendly and patient when it comes to advice and always available to help when you need them! We would highly recommend The Tax Shop.
    Ben & Leanne Mitchell , Alpha Asset Protection Services Ltd Taunton, Somerset
  • 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 went to the Tax Shop at the beginning of 2012. Within no time at all Matt had looked through my accounts and suggested accounting changes to help my business grow & save money. Service from Matt & his team has been extremely efficient & first class. There have never been any hidden costs. It is one less worry of running a business knowing that my accounting is in such capable hands
    Sarah Wilkinson, Fine Saratoga Ltd, Wellington, Somerset
  • 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
  • On returning to the UK after working in Australia for six years I wanted to set up a consultancy business and to develop an associated website to help promote it. Not having much of an idea of how to go about this, I approached Matt and his colleagues at the Tax Shop and Web Shop in Hythe. A couple of meetings later I was up and running with a company registered and a website designed and live. One year later the business is going very well and the great set up services provided by Matt and his colleagues have been matched by the on-going accountancy services they provide.
    Adam Watkinson, Storith Consulting Limited
  • Having dealings with the “Tax shop” over the last seven years in regards to accountancy and business advice, I have found the service impeccable. When I email or pick the phone, I get a very fast response which I need for my business decisions. A highly recommended team.
