Testimonials

Our clients say it all!

“I just don’t know where to start!
Peter provides premier league accounting and tax expertise, explained in a clear and kind way, helps me avoid the numerous pitfalls of small business financial and tax management, and delivers on his promises. He has helped me turn my business around in terms of financial robustness, and this has allowed me to focus on what I do best (I’ll give you a clue – it’s not accounting!) I am moving south soon but I would not dream of parting company now I have found Peter and his firm.”

Innovation Consultant

“I first approached Joseph Lawrence following a very positive recommendation from a close friend, and have subsequently benefitted from detailed guidance relating to self-assessment and Capital Gains Tax.  Being previously naive to all bar PAYE, I found the detailed and very accessible advice and guidance provided by Joseph Lawrence greatly increased my knowledge and confidence and led to a very successful resolution of some complicated tax affairs.  I am very grateful to the friend who recommended Joseph Lawrence and would not hesitate to offer a similar recommendation to anyone seeking expert tax advice.”

Ffarmwr

“Having been associated with Peter and Anthony Summers for some twenty plus years, I have been in a position to monitor their progress through their chosen profession.

Their expertise in dealing with my everyday business accounts, coupled with their taxation advice, has proven faultless throughout these challenging times for the embryo company. It gave me great pleasure to see them expand to their new premises at Parc Menai, on the highly acclaimed business park. It was because of their gained experience that I approached Peter with a new challenge, ‘publishing’, which was out of their then client base structure. I am pleased to report that Joseph Lawrence was up to the challenge, and Peter has proved a willing mentor and adviser during this time. As a result, Bugle Horn Publications are deeply grateful for his expanded knowledge of this subject.

I established our company with my business partner, Robert Cooper of Leicester, who also runs his own Opticians, neither of us therefore, having any experience in this new field, which had blossomed from a shared hobby. As a result, Robert and I were able to avoid all the pitfalls of fledgling author publishers, in this very competitive and cut throat business adventure. Without Peter’s sound advice and guidance, we would have struggled, and have since become established as, the leading authorities in military history, research and book publishing, in our chosen field of expertise.

It therefore gives us much pleasure in recommending Joseph Lawrence to any prospective client, and can assure them that they will be professionally served and respected by this dynamic young and expanding company, which has the potential of becoming one of the leading companies in its field in North Wales.”

Authors

“I established my business as a Freelance Public Health Consultant in 2001, having completed a 22 year career in the NHS. Peter and Anthony had also decided to establish their own accountancy business in 2001 after a number of years working in North West Wales. I was therefore one of their first new clients. My self employment has involved a range of work within Wales/UK and overseas, particularly in the Caribbean, and Joseph Lawrence have been able to guide me through the requirements for VAT returns and annual accounts. In 2004 I ‘refreshed’ my GP training, and since then have spent half my time as a GP locum, mostly for the Royal Air Force, across the UK and in places like Germany, Cyprus and Naples. This brought further accounting issues that Peter and Anthony have been able to advise on. 5 years ago I moved from Bangor back to Cardiff, but having established our initial professional relationship, we have been able to conduct all our business, such as the annual self assessment tax return, by email and occasional telephone call. This has been especially useful when I have been working overseas when these deadlines have had to be met.”

Florist

“I am delighted to have the opportunity of committing to print, my thoughts on the Accountancy Practice of Joseph Lawrence.
My account with them is not the largest on their books by a long way I suspect, but the service, attendance and advices that I get certainly does not reflect that. I always feel that I am getting their maximum effort, irrespective of the size of Account, and I always feel that the advice I receive is always specifically tailored to my needs.

Their professional approach, coupled with sound unbiased advice and help in all aspects, gives me complete confidence in the practice. Having been with them from it’s virtual inception, I can honestly say I have never had cause for concern, which is refreshing in this day and age.”

Retired Private Client

“I am an 81 year old widow and I decided that I needed to have some assistance with my Income Tax return and so began my happy relationship with Joseph Lawrence.

Although I do not have a business to run or have a fortune to administer Peter Summers at Joseph Lawrence has always treated me as if I am his most valued client at all times. I am greeted by all the staff as if they had been looking forward to my arrival. Peter is meticulous in dealing with my small affairs and watches out for any errors that might have occured on the side of the Income Tax authorities and last year was able to point out to them that I had been overcharged by some £900 – now a surprise like that is really worth its weight in gold.

Joseph Lawrence treat their clients with courtesy, respect and I might add great patience. I feel my affairs are safe in their hands and I thoroughly recommend this company to anyone. I quite enjoy my visits to Joseph Lawrence and look forward to a thoroughly enjoyable hour or two.”

The professionalism of all the staff at Joseph Lawrence helped me so much and gave me so much advice, it allowed me to concentrate on the day to day task of starting a business whilst the financial and legal sides were being looked after.

I have been working with Anthony at Joseph Lawrence Accountants for 11 years.

Their service has always been professional yet friendly, their knowledge inspires confidence and encouragement. They have always been helpful and made themselves available at any time to answer questions and offer solutions to financial issues that occur within any small business.”

Letting business

“I found Anthony to be very patient, kind and supportive when dealing with the financial situation I needed assistance with. I was going through a particularly tough period, so was quite stressed generally, exacerbated by the large financial decisions I also needed to work through. Complicated terms were always explained clearly and in a way that I could understand. The short, medium and long term implications of options were clearly outlined, this made it straightforward to work out the best decisions. I am totally happy with the financial decisions I was able to make. Being able to trust and get support that I could understand while under pressure was very reassuring and helped reduce worries. I would wholeheartedly recommend the service to others, and will definitely be a returning client, if my situation warrants it in the future.”

Chiropodist

Joseph Lawrence was recommended to me during a chat with my hairdresser and I met with Peter soon afterwards. My affairs are relatively straightforward, but I wanted the reassurance of having my tax returns prepared by a professional. I have always been made to feel every bit as important as his clients who clearly have much more complex needs than mine. My returns are always sorted in a matter of days and Peter has guided me with unfailing patience and understanding. Communication is excellent and replies to any queries always prompt. All members of the team are friendly and welcoming, and the offices are spacious, light and airy. There is easy access and parking is no problem.

Property Construction Company

“Prior to retiring I had been a client of “Antony Lawrence” for 16 years.  Our relationship was based on trust.  I trusted them to provide the best service to me they could.  I was never disappointed.  They were specific in their advice, knowledgeable in the law and its administration and accurate in their workings. 

This amounted to a bespoke service meeting my needs and managing my tax affairs in a professional, courteous and supportive manner.

Working within the law, I was guided through some difficult times and I found them to be expert in their practice and empathetic to my situation.  They ensuring I understood the technicalities and acted for me to the highest standard.

I have nothing but praise for them and would recommend them without reservation.”
