Offshore Bank Account Investigation: retired business consultant (Local Compliance Tax Investigation): "Hi Gemma, my father and myself thank you for yours and Paul's help in remedying what was a very stressful situation for my father. If we have friends with any similar issues we will recommend you (if that's ok) and if we have any future issues with HMRC for the family I know who we will be calling! Thanks once again - I can 100% confirm dealing with the tax man is not something I would wish to go through again as one never knows what will happen. Luckily you and Paul guided us through this."

Referring accountant: (Local Compliance Tax Investigation): “We have worked with Paul on behalf of our clients and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him on HMRC enquiries. He has a good technical knowledge and is excellent in negotiations.” July 16, 2010, Nicki Brockhurst FCCA CTA, Managing Director, Brockhurst Davies Ltd
PAYE taxpayer: disputed expenses claims: (Local Compliance Income Tax Enquiry): "I would like to thank you and Gemma for your guidance in amicably and satisfactorily resolving the tax issues, with HMRC, which seemed really grave for me as a PAYE employee, which I first approached you. I am grateful for your patience whilst I collected the relevant details going back to 2003 and for using your knowledge of the tax laws to negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement with the HMRC." Mr Vilas R. Hendon, London May 2010.
Retired couple - (incorrect return of investment income): (Local Compliance Income Tax Enquiry) "Dear Gemma, Now that the issues between ourselves and HMRC have been resolved we wanted to thank you for all the work you did on our behalf. Although our tax problems were domestic rather than business and probably small-scale compared with others you deal with we appreciated how you treated us with complete seriousness and professionalism. We really valued: the clarity of your advice, your cautious realism about possible outcomes, the way in which you kept us regularly informed about progress, and your accessibility and willingness to respond to our concerns, however trivial they were. We are very confident that HMRC's decision not to impose a penalty was largely due to the clarity with which you presented the information to them and your persistence, persuasiveness and command of detail in your letters and phone conversations. It was also lovely and reassuring to have you sort out our finances in such a calm, relaxed and good humoured way. We really appreciated that." Mr & Mrs O. retired teaching couple, Nottinghamshire
