"Sandfords Construction Ltd turned to Ollerenshaws following the closure of our usual accountants. Our Financial Director was due to retire so we needed someone quickly to do our end of year audit. Rob came into our office almost immediately and in record time sorted out our accounts at a very fair cost. We wish we had found Rob earlier as his effecient service is very welcome. Our finance Director was happy retiring knowing that we had someone reliable we could call on. Many thanks Rob."
"Great personal service, Rob has looked after our accounts for years and always does a brilliant job."
"Highly experienced financial accountant - professional but reasonably priced! Thanks Robert."
"Rob was a great help when I made the decision to go self-employed. He simplified the whole process for me, answering any questions I had and pretty much set everything up so I was good to go. Would 100% recommend Ollerenshaw's!"
"Give me the personal touch any day! We used to wait whilst large firms of accountants took such a long time to prepare our accounts that we were often confused which year we were referring to when paying corporation tax, and on one occasion we even missed the 31st Jan personal tax deadline and collected a fine. Now with Rob Ollerenshaw we end our year on 31st March, send our books away at the start of May, discuss any adjustments by the middle of May and the accounts are finalised, submitted and accepted by the end of May. Our personal tax is complete and up to date at that point and we know exactly how much corporation tax we have to pay on 1st January. Our bank has figures and is happy, we are happy, and we never worry about deadlines as we are always bang up to date."
"The Smythe Consultancy Limited has used the services of Ollerenshaws Financial Accountants since its business was established. The service provided by Robert was always been excellent. He is a very meticulous accountant and has scrutinised papers provided to ensure that all entries match up and that all potential savings against tax - within the law - have been identified and accounted for. His work is completed promptly and efficiently. My primary criteria for deciding on suitable accountant has always been trust and honesty. He has consistently displayed these qualities. He is very knowledgeable and up to date with taxation law and procedures and his advice has always been sound. I would not hesitate to recommend his service to others."
"I made the mistake of interpreting ” Self Assessment ” literally; on spotting the HMRC on line filing system indicating that I owed tax of far more than I imagined ( £8k), I ( at first reluctantly ) contacted a qualified accountant ( Ollerenshaws ). This wasn’t a bad move! I was in fact due a repayment, the fee was trivial in comparison. The motto is don’t try to DIY: use a professional! By the way, my Tax Return was solely ( allegedly straightforward ) PAYE income."
( Surname Withheld Due To Embarrassment! )
"I was faced with four years of accounts and Self Assessment Tax Returns and sixteen VAT Returns outstanding, my head was in the sand, my current accountants didn’t want to know, bankrupcy seemed the only way out. I called Ollerenshaws and Rob resolved everything in a timely manner for a very reasonable fee ( agreed in advance ). He fended off the authorities, dealt with them personally, and from estimated assessments of an unaffordable sum I am now actually back on track and running my business properly ( with his help ). He tells me I’m the only person to actually offer him a tip!"
( True Case But Name Changed )
"Rob has been looking after my somewhat muddled accounts for several years, my accounts get no better but Rob thankfully does!"
"Given the choice between winning the F1 World Championship again or Ollerenshaws looking after my books, no contest, it’s Rob every time. Ahh, well, maybe next season?"
( Correct Name But Not Actually True )
"Rob Ollerenshaw was extremely helpful with my accounts and Self Assessment Tax Return; everything was explained clearly in plain English. I was also pleased that the (very reasonable) fee was exactly as quoted in advance. Thanks again Rob."
"Really great service helping me handle and understand my tax returns. Very affordable rate and Rob helped me with every question and query I had. Feel much better about everything, I would highly recommend Rob!"
"Rob talked us through the merits and pitfalls of incorporation of a new business. We concluded on a limited company, which Ollerenshaws set up. We also took advice on VAT registration, salary / dividend balance and all the other minefields of a new business. A friendly professional service at a very reasonable rate. Thanks from Lee and Andy"
"We have been using Ollerenshaws for some years now. Both my wife and I are both PAYE employees but due to earnings and having rental properties we are obliged to submit annual tax returns and prepare annual accounts for our rental properties. To do this we wanted to ensure we sought professional advice and have an accountant complete both our tax returns and keep our rental incomes correctly accounted for.
The service and fair charging policy Rob has applied has meant we return year on year safe in the knowledge that things won’t get missed! Thanks for the prompt and efficient service. Darrell and Sally."
"Despite being a full time employee of a large corporation, I still required some tax advice on company benefits in kind and bonuses etc. HMRC claim to make self-assessment easy but I don't find this the case! Rob was patient and very helpful in explaining the various options most beneficial to me. I still would use Rob every time (and not do this alone) to ensure that it is right."
"I have nothing but praise for Rob Ollerenshaw...... as a local small business owner 'that time of year' is daunting to say the least. Rob's friendly and professional manner, his thorough and efficient practice and of course his very reasonable rates have taken all the stress out of my tax return. Thanks Rob!"
"I have a number of businesses, including the hi-tech MAGI-LED ( UK ); I have relied on Ollerenshaws for accountancy and tax advice for over 25 years. This has always been provided to the highest standard and at reasonable rates. Ranjit Singh Sohal: MAGI-LED ( UK ) Limited."
"As Treasurer to The Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers, I needed to find a local, reliable and efficient accountant. Rob Ollerenshaw has been found. The service provided is excellent... offering understandable advice and a fast speedy service. The Guild has been delighted with his work and are looking to work alongside his company for the future years. The Guild has about 150 members and promotes the ancient art of town crying in Great Britain and indeed throughout the world."
"I have known Rob professionally and personally for over 10 years and have always found him to conduct himself with the upmost professionalism and Integrity. He always provides clear, concise and non biased advice and has helped me significantly with many problems and questions over the years. Nothing is too much hassle and the speed and effectiveness with which he deals with these queries is a credit to his ability to manage his business and client projects. All of this for a very reasonable and fair charging structure. I have no hesitation in recommending Rob to any individual client or any large corporate client I also deal with."
"I am a Chartered Physiotherapist and over the past 10 years, I have experienced exceptional professional service using Ollerenshaws Financial Accountants."
"I've used Rob's services for several years. 1st rate, very efficient and very inexpensive for what he provides. Thanks, Robert."
"We are a medium-sized construction company. Rob was recommended by a business associate who had been with him for many years. In all honesty, I initially thought the recommendation a bit flattering but on reflection, we do agree. Much more than a typical accountant, he really is part of the management team. And unlike any accountant I have met before, he can be contacted at pretty much any time! Rebecca Jones, Company Secretary, Cassidy Westport"
