WG bring an openness and knowledge of our business to the table, coupled with a desire to add value to our business and not just become an additional expense. We now have much more efficient monthly management accounts and a greater awareness of tax strategies, so we now keep a lot more of what we earn! The main benefit of working with WG is the regular assessment of our on-going strategy and by looking at the big picture they are constantly challenging us to develop our business.
Susie Hawkins, Managing Director of Simon Smith Group
We feel that WG are part of our team at board level. When you are running your own business it can be lonely at the top and difficult to discuss issues internally. In our regular meetings WG share ideas, act as a calming influence when necessary and have certainly helped to put us on the right track over the years. After our meetings we feel that everything has been put into perspective and we can move forward. Advice covers all aspects of our business including people, budgets and marketing. Most important of all is that they talk on our level.
Anthony Reeley, Director of Chace Care Limited and The Chace Rest Home
You guys are so good that I don’t want to give you a testimonial in case my competitors find out…. Actually that would be quite a good testimonial wouldn’t it?!
Oliver Latter, Managing Director of Boomeco
As promised, all the staff are more than willing to help with any query, and the speed of answer to problems is always excellent. Since we have started working with WG we have been able to delegate much of our tax planning and payroll to them, and with their advice on the rationalisation of systems we have been able to focus on the core aspects of the business. Overall the relationship between WG and ourselves is extremely beneficial and proactive.
Chris Davies, Managing Director of Idris Davies
Working with WG gives us assurance and peace of mind. Always available for a meeting or at the end of the phone, WG take the whole burden of accounts and tax off our shoulders. The management accounts give us an accurate insight on how things are going quarter by quarter and keep us on track to achieve our targets.
Umesh Korant, Managing Director of Cotswold Linen Care

Rob Clarke, Co-owner of CC Ground Investigations
Having been recommended to WG after already having met a number of other accounting firms, I can honestly say, the communication and the service we have received has been first class right from the word go. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone looking for Accountants who really are on the ball.
Gordon McQuoid, Director of Latronis
WG has looked after our affairs for many years, providing good and straight forward advice, keeping the business clearly focused on its aims and objectives.

Steven Gosling, Director of DSG Quantity Surveyors
As a bookkeeper working for a number of clients, I have an overview of the service various accountants offer clients. I have no reservation in recommending WG Chartered Accountants as a firm who offer the most complete service in terms of support and advice to their clients at what seems a very reasonable rate. Their friendly cooperation in working with me enables us both to give the best possible service on a client’s behalf. I have recommended them to clients in search of a first rate accountancy service and would again.
Jonathan Gault , Bookkeeping Services
BoardTalk meetings with WG are an important focus for us to take time out to think about where we are with the business, otherwise it would just continue with normal daily tasks. Having an independent voice/arbitrator when sometimes we may not agree, and also having an external viewpoint of the firm has been a huge help for us. From startup, WG have helped us get the whole business going commercially, including a review of the business strategy and helping to straighten out financial plans.

I have been with WG for 7 years and have always found them efficient and friendly to work with.

Steven Gosling, Managing Director of DSG Quantity Surveyors
I took on Brian and WG not just for financial accounting but more to assist us in setting up business basics and getting us on the right track for growth: like a business partner. This was definitely the right decision; with Brian’s continuously updated ‘added value’ services and support we now regard his firm as trusted advisors and I’d thoroughly recommend his services to anyone looking for the same.

WG are not just accountants! For someone like myself, with an entrepreneurial spirit, WG provide a one stop shop where, for one monthly fee, we can get advice and help on all of the business interests – a great sounding board to run ideas past.
