I was recommended Ascot Drummond by a friend after I had some issues when I first started out with my company. The team have guided me through the first few months of starting out, answering and questions and concerns I may have in good time. They have always explained everything in detail, no matter how big and small the issue. The tools that they provide have made the day to day running of the company much easier and overall, it was a great choice for me.
Our company, IT consultants, have been using Ascot Drummond since April 2002. The longest period that our company has stayed with any accountants by some long way, which must prove testimony to the quality of service provided by Ascot Drummond. We find it easy to input data to be used for tax, VAT, annual returns etc. and the online holding of these records assists us should we need to refer back to them. But foremost, it’s the staff of Ascot Drummond who have always been helpful, and the continuity of those staff to build a good relationship, that has kept us with them.
I can highly recommend Ascot Drummond for accountancy services. I have used Scott and the team for a considerable length of time for both business and personal accounts. They are very efficient, pleasant to deal with and always answer any queries that I may have extremely promptly. An absolute pleasure to deal with.
I have used Ascot Drummond for nearly 2 years now and experienced no issues with the services they provide. Quarterly VAT, corporation tax, personal TAX and much more are all included in the service and I am always reminded to review well in advance before the deadline. Their website provides an easy access to multiple useful contents with not much navigation including to the FreeAgent tool used for expenses, billing etc. Any questions are normally answered in good time and never left unanswered.
Ascot Drummond made setting up of my limited company very stress free. They helped me at every step of initializing it.

As a first time company director, the task of keeping my accounts in order seemed a daunting one. After speaking with Ascot Drummond everything was made as clear and simple as possible and having been with them for over 3 and a half years now, my life as a director couldn't have been made any easier. Always at hand when I need them and more than happy to assist or give advice at any opportunity. I really can't rate them highly enough.

I've been a customer of Ascot Drummond for more than fifteen years. From the quality of service they provide and their conscientiousness , it feels like the accountants there are fully dedicated members of my limited company's team, and not just outsourced service providers. There have been several instances over the years where AD has proactively advised me on accounting guidelines and tax policy updates that have optimized the financial health of my limited company significantly. Being a one-man band software contractor, I am always considering ways to reduce the cost of doing business. AD have provided invaluable guidance there. One business cost that is indispensible, however, is AD's outstanding accounting support. AD take the accounting load off of my mind. As a contractor, the value of not having to think about that sort of stuff myself is priceless.
I cannot emphasise how much Ascot Drummond Accountants has helped me in my day to day life and small business. Having a high quality accountant has been like having another set of hands and eyes, giving me more time to focus on the parts of my job that I love and less on the not so pleasant adversities that living in an economic world can often bring. With so many distractions in the present day world, from legal necessities, to scams, I can’t always focus on my business and me. But having my accountant has freed up space to allow me to be the best version of myself, as an ambitious and successful entrepreneur.
A welcoming and professional team. They did my tax return for me and it couldn’t have been easier. An excellent service.
Dealing with Ascot Drummond couldn't have been easier for me, especially living outside the UK. Scott made everything simple, making it clear what was required from the outset. He submitted two tax returns and also arranged my HMRC refund - all within 2 weeks.
