We have been fortunate to work with many clients that like what we do, so much so they wrote us a lovely testimonial. Please find below a sample of the great things they say about us.

At PBTA in Keynsham they are an amazing team. They were there to help me in the moment of need. They are very professional but also ready to listen to the client's concerns. They do not shy away from giving full support and going the extra mile to explain in layman terms what the alien world of taxation is about and how it affect us personally.

The team is there to answer the call and goes through with you in details to every step of tax declaration making sure the client understand the issues. They never rush a consultation and there is plenty of time for reflection and coming back with more questions.

I would highly recommend to anyone having troubles with our taxation system.

I have been using the payroll department at PBTA for a year now and am extremely happy with the service that I have received with this being especially important in this past year dealing with furlough claims and other Covid related issues. I appreciate the personal level of service that I receive and know that if I have any queries that I will have these responded to extremely efficiently and knowledgably. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for anyone’s payroll requirement.

Zetland Practice Ltd

I have worked with Faye and Helen at PBTA for many years and I literally couldn't run my business without them. Like many small business owners, Finance is not the favourite part of the job and they take that headache away. Always there at the end of a phone with patience and humour, helping friends as well as me with advice. You couldn't wish for a better partner to support you in running your business.

The team at PBTA made the initial setting up of my limited company super easy and painless. Paul had set up the company really quickly and I was able to work immediately. The ongoing support has been 5 star for me, I'm a creative and really need my hand held most of the time when it comes to my accounts and tax and over the past 2 years the whole team has been really supportive.

I highly recommend PBTA - they completely understand the needs of a small business and their customer service is second to none. Now in our third year of trading, PBTA have supported us since the start and made our transition from sole trader to VAT registered limited company a smooth and stress free process. I can confidently concentrate on other areas of the business knowing that they are keeping everything running smoothly with accounting deadlines and payroll requirements always met in plenty of time. Thank you so much.

Mark Barrett has been operating my payroll for the last 2 years and I have to say the quality of service is outstanding. I receive the payslips in plenty of time and a covering email explaining exactly what payments need to be made with tax calculations included making payroll an easy and pleasurable experience. I am able to get to speak to Mark at short notice if I have a remuneration question and his knowledge and expertise is second to none. I cannot thank Mark enough for his support and he comes strongly recommended by me!

On behalf of us all at Chopperpod I would like to say thank you to all of you at PBTA. Over the years we have been associated with you the service you have given has been outstanding. Accounts have always been prepared and presented in a very timely and professional manner but also a very easily understandable way.

The many services you provide for us e.g. payroll, pensions, computer programs, VAT returns etc; also the expert advice freely available with a simple phone call or email to you or any of your colleagues is an excellent service.

Finally a special thank you to you all for the help and guidance you have given us through the current Covid-19 crisis. You have handled everything for us; Grants, Furlough, Government rules etc.

My previous accountants were always very hard to get hold of and seemed to provide a “one size fits all” kind of service which didn’t work for us at all. So 10 years ago we switched to PBTA on a friend’s recommendation that they would be available to answer queries quickly and efficiently and also offer a personal touch in terms of advice tailored to our company’s individual circumstances. We have regular meetings throughout the year with one advisor (in our case, Andy) which gives me confidence that Andy and the team are fully up-to-date with the latest facts and figures affecting our performance and therefore able to forsee any issues we should be aware of in plenty of time. We have found their input and advice invaluable over the years and more so than ever this year with all the new pandemic related systems to work through. I would not hesitate to recommend PBTA to any business looking for fairly priced, reliable and most importantly, readily available accountancy and tax advice from a team who really care about their clients.

Jon Hurst Hairdressing Ltd

PBTA have helped us for many years. We have always been impressed by the team’s expertise and understanding of our business needs. Andrew has a personal, proactive approach to guide us with the accounting of our busy Timber Merchants. The entire team are always available either via telephone or email to help with any problems we encounter. I cannot recommend highly enough.

We have been with PBTA for many years now.
We have always found them to be super efficient.
All staff extremely obliging and friendly.
Any problems and they are always happy to accommodate you.
We have always dealt with Andy McLachlan and we have been more that grateful for his swift response and helpfulness on many occasions.
We rely on him and he never fails to deliver.
Long may they continue.

Friendly approach, willing to help with any problems in a quick and efficient manner. They make clients feel comfortable and at ease. I would certainly recommend them for their attitude towards their clients.

A J Clark and Son Ltd.

As a busy Limited Company, it gives me such peace of mind knowing that all my business and tax affairs are being managed by such an experienced, knowledgeable and communicative team. PBTA have gone above and beyond during the past 7 years that I have been with them, and my business has continued to grow each year as a result of their expert advice and support. PBTA are very good at simplifying complicated business matters so that I am able to understand how to manage my finances without needing to get bogged down or confused. As a media professional, this has been incredibly valuable, as it means that I can get on with running the creative side of my business and trust that my finances are in capable hands. I've received support on everything from Incorporation, VAT returns, Business Banking to Mortgage Advice, Inland Revenue and processing international payments. During the Covid-19 pandemic, PBTA were quick to respond to the crisis, offering immediate information and support regarding the government options available for businesses during this time. I would highly recommend PBTA to any business or individual looking for a trustworthy, safe, reliable and affordable solution for your business.

Zoë Davis

I have been using PBTA since I set up my limited company. I had a very limited knowledge of my accounting responsibilities as a Director and Paul and Andy have been invaluable in supporting both the launch and growth of my business over the last ten years and navigating the highs and lows in between . In particular I have really appreciated the personal service that Andy has provided. From being able to answer my (very) basic questions to helping me with more complex ideas for the future And has always been incredible patient, knowledgable and personable. I choose PBTA because they were personally recommended to me by a friend and consider it to have been one of the best decisions I made when launching my business.

PBTA have provided superb accountancy services to my LTD company for years and years.. in these seriously pressurised times recently they’ve gone above and beyond to support my business during the Corona crisis - keeping me informed about what I can claim and also making the claims for me. Finally I really appreciated their speedy service at getting my yearly accounts in on time.

I have known Duane and used his services for many years and are very happy with the service he and his team, provide. The fixed price broken into monthly payments makes budgeting easier and it’s good to be able to phone or write knowing it won’t result in a corresponding invoice!

Martin Evans

I’ve been with PBTA from the start of my business, and every year the money that they save me far outways the cost of their services. Always on hand to help with any queries, their advice has saved me on many an occasion! I have no issues recommending them to others and have done on many an occasion.

PBTA take care of all the practical accountancy that my business needs to free me up to think big and put my energies into making other things happen. That’s pretty fantastic on its own. But on top of that Paul also provides insightful consultancy and coaching that brings a perspective to my business planning that is just invaluable. If you are wondering about whether to choose these guys, wonder no longer, just do it!

Duane has been our accountant for years! We can relax when handing our financial matters to him to deal with because we know he is good at what he does. We are not interested in the posh offices or fancy suits – just good business awareness and professional dealings which is what PBTA deliver. An excellent service at value for money prices.

PBTA give my company an excellent service. Not only does our accountant Paul do a brilliant job on all of the accounting functions provided he also takes an interest in the business and comes up with really good ideas on how to take it forward.
