Client Testimonals

  • Like a lot of retired people, my income derives from a complex variety of sources, including private and state pensions, share dividends, interest on cash deposits, and the odd sale of an asset resulting in the crystallisation of a capital gain. As a result, my annual tax return is far from straightforward, and I have relied on John for the past ten years to put it together for me and present it to HMRC. This he has done efficiently, speedily and at reasonable cost. Moreover, if I have ever failed to understand how some items are worked out (eg. capital gains tax on the sale of shares), John goes above and beyond the call of duty to take the time and patience to explain to me the general principles and particular example involved. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone in need of effective and friendly help with their tax returns.

  • HomeForce has worked with LWJ Accounting and John Johnston since 2004. During that time the service provided has only ever affirmed our reasons for choosing LWJ in the first instance namely: receiving sound advice that is specific to our business needs rather than the “find the bit relevant to you” blanket approach of other accounting firms and the accurate, patient and jargon free way our accounts have been dealt with, at very reasonable charges. However, perhaps the characteristic that truly makes LWJ stand out for us is that our business is NOT seen as cash pot to be milked by LWJ for their own advancement. Something that we experienced with other accounting practices. We have recommended LWJ to numerous others and always heard positive feedback from them too
