Testimonials

“Paul is an excellent accountant and has worked for me for many years. He helped me sell my business which was a stressful time, he couldn’t have been more helpful at this difficult time. After the sale he continued to help the new buyers. He also helped me through a VAT inspection and was there to support me through the inspection.

He continues to help my Husband in his business and has proved to be an invaluable asset.

Over previous years we had a few book keepers and accountants and they all let us down one way or another. Paul has been with us for many more years and has never let us down. I would totally recommend his services to anyone who asked me.” Charlotte Gaisford   https://www.charlottegaisford.co.uk/

“We set up our company in 2007 and involved Paul Barron from the onset. His experience was invaluable and having him there set our minds at rest knowing that we were fulfilling all our statutory obligations. He looks after our payroll and has guided us through VAT registration, tax and on keeping our accounts. He quickly gets back to us and doesn’t mind answering queries as they come up. We have found him to be extremely honest, friendly and professional at all times and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to anybody. Paul cares about the service he gives; he knows all his clients individually and therefore can give a professional service you just don’t get with bigger, less personal companies. I look forward to a long and mutually successful association with Premier Bookkeeping.” Jackie Lewis, Lewis Surveying Associates http://www.lewissurveying.co.uk/

“For most of my working life I have been on PAYE and had an employer. Recently I began self employment. I love my new business, even the requirement to keep receipts and work out my income and expenses wasn’t a problem. However, I was acutely aware of what I didn’t know with regards to Income tax, VAT, allowances, voluntary contributions etc.

It was through a recommendation that I met Paul. From the beginning he answered all my questions and I was in no doubt that he was a professional who knew what he was talking about. All the little queries that cropped up over the subsequent few weeks were answered quickly and I was genuinely impressed. He is easy to talk to and covered all of my tax issues. Needless to say my tax return was processed well within the deadline and I am very happy. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.” V. Harper.

“When I started my business in 2006, one thing I was not looking forward to was filling in my tax return. I needed someone who I could leave my books with and sort it out for me. I contacted Paul and I can safely say it was the best decision I could have made. I no longer worry about my tax return as I know it is in safe hands with Paul. A quick and efficient service, without breaking the bank, which I can recommend to anyone.” Roy Castle, PC-AID Computer Services http://www.pcaid-northeast.co.uk/

“When Humshaugh Pre-School grew and exceeded the Charity Commission return threshold for the first time, we needed our accounts prepared and independently examined – as a voluntary committee this seemed like a difficult and expensive task, but then along came Paul! He quickly guided us through and presented everything in the correct format saving us a huge amount of time and effort and ensuring we fulfilled all of the Charity Commission requirements. Thank you!” Humshaugh Pre-School

“Paul Barron has carried out the inspection of the School Fund Accounts for Queen Elizabeth High School for a number of years. He combines an efficient and cost-effective service with a friendly, approachable manner and provides helpful advice where needed.” Owen McArdle, Bursar, Queen Elizabeth High School, Hexham

“Starting a smallbusiness can be very daunting. Being able to make a business successful is one thing, but handling the paperwork, tax and accounts is another.  The thought of muddling through a paper minefield was the main reason I delayed so long before I set up my company.

Paul Barron has the patience of a saint. He made the whole process (starting up from scratch, and then managing the ongoing accounting) a breeze.  Nothing is a bother for him and he always makes you feel like you are his most important client. If you are thinking of starting up a business, contact Paul. It will be done in a flash and he will be there with you every step of the way.” David Belcher, Sumtech Ltd
