I have known and worked with Julia for many years now. Julia is incredibly caring and diligent and has been the linchpin in our business to facilitate some really smart decisions. It’s incredibly comforting as a business owner to know that you have sound advice and knowledge on tap that will always serve you well. Nothing is too much for Julia and her team at Buckley Watson and she will always go the extra mile to make you feel that little bit better when it comes to making any big decisions.

Furthermore, after several years of working together, I now consider her to be more than just my trusted advisor, but also a friend and hope our dealings continue for many years more.

If your looking for professional, personable and sound advice… look no further!

SG Electrics

It is our pleasure to whole heartedly recommend Buckley Watson, who have been instrumental in guiding our electrical business, to significantly increased profitability. As an electrical contractor with a very high number of transactions, managing our finances and understanding our accounts has always been a challenge. However, since we joined Buckley Watson, Julia and her team have made a tremendous difference.

From the beginning, they took the time to understand the unique aspects of our business and tailored their services to meet our specific needs. With their help, we have finally (after many years) achieved a full mastery of our accounts, which has been a game-changer for us. Their meticulous approach to managing our finances has ensured that we are always on top of our monthly profit and loss statements.

Not only have they helped us streamline our financial processes, but their strategic advice has also led to much-improved profitability. Their insights into cost management, budgeting, and financial planning have allowed us to make decisions that positively impact our bottom line and they have ensured we are not overpaying our tax obligations which had been a problem previously.

Thanks to Julia’s help and support, we now have a clear and accurate picture of our finances on a daily basis, enabling us to focus on growing our business with confidence.

We could not ask for a better accountant or better people to work with and it has been a genuine pleasure every step of the way.
Thank you Julia and all at Buckley Watson for your continued help and support.

Amber House Ltd

We have used the services of the accountants at Buckley Watson since 2017 and have always been extremely impressed not only with the quality of service provided, which is exemplary, but also the highly personable and knowledgeable team members.

From payroll services through to undertaking a full audit process, we have found everyone we have dealt with to be exceptionally professional and highly skilled in their areas of expertise.

In the time we have worked with the team we have grown significantly as a business and therefore the accountancy services required have also expanded and our key contacts, Steve Barker, Steve Cook and Sean Tierney have continually proven to be invaluable in their specialist help and support.

The prospect of an audit procedure can be daunting, but Steve Cook’s skilled experience (and indefatigable patience!) managed the whole process seamlessly on our behalf even under externally applied very tight deadlines.

We would definitely recommend Buckley Watson to anyone looking for professional and skilled accountancy services with a team that are very approachable and a genuine pleasure to work with

The Rolling Bean

The team at Buckley Watson have been our accountants since early 2021. Initially, Julia and the team ran our end of year Company Tax Returns, personal self-assessments and provided us with adhoc assistance when required. All our bookkeeping and VAT returns were managed internally. As our business grew and the intensity of our daily accounting increased the pressure and demand became overwhelming. After a meeting with Julia in September 2022, we agreed on a fully managed accountancy packaging, ultimately handing over all our day-to-day bookkeeping, vat returns and annual filling to Buckley Watson.

Julia and the team quickly went to work, creating a new system for us within Xero, importing all our past data and within weeks taking over full management of all aspect of our accountancy. Since then, the stress of vat returns has disappeared, any questions, queries or issues are answered quickly over the phone or email freeing us to manage the company instead of worrying about fuel receipts and balancing the books at the end of each week.

Alongside the day-to-day management, I have monthly meetings with Julia to review the company accounts and our performance, breaking down into micro detail each element of the companies P&L. This service, alongside the day-to-day bookkeeping has been invaluable for our growth, allowing us to make educated investment choices along with understanding our day-to-day cashflow and how we management our business. On a personal level, Julia has advised on extremely tax efficient methods of accessing company money, which has ben invaluable as we move home, personal pensions, private medical care and more. All things that were unknown to me and have reduced my company tax bill, helping to indirectly pay for the incredible service Buckley Watson provide.

In summary, handing over our accountancy to Buckley Watson, has been the single best business decision we have made in the past 5 years. The whole team are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. They’ve become an extension of my own team and a true asset we didn’t know we needed. I cannot recommend them enough.

A Plus Security

After having a very challenging time with a previous accountancy firm we, as a company, were looking to engage with a reputable firm who would take the time to understand our business and offer us the advice and services that we have craved for quite a number of years.
Since engaging with Sean and Buckley Watson since 2020 we have found exactly what we were missing with our previous accountancy firm.

An outstanding service with a high degree of knowledge and expertise along with the ability to explain advice in a way for all parties to understand clearly.

Buckley Watson have taken on our accountancy services, including payroll which has allowed our accounts department to concentrate on core business tasks which has been of great benefit for the allocation of administrative costs.

We would highly recommend Buckley Watson for their excellent services.
