Our client’s experiences
We would like to say a huge thank you to our clients who have kindly contributed to this section.
Here you can see how they have been challenged in their business, how we helped them and what the results have meant going forward.
Contractor – Cheltenham
I was a retiring Contractor and my then accountant failed to properly advise me on the tax implications of taking money out of my company on cessation – and on the most practical way to do it.
AMS advised me to take my money out using a variety of solutions. I avoided the use of a Liquidator, saved on accountancy fees and admin time, all resulting in no Capital Gains Tax to pay.
I am not in business any more but I am very pleased that I found AMS. Following their advice made a very good end to my working life.
We were a new publishing business struggling to keep our records in spreadsheet form. We needed a system that was easier to manage that could quickly provide us with the information we needed.
AMS helped us decide on the right cloud accounting software for us. They helped us implement it and each quarter they review the system to ensure our records are correct and useful to us.
We now have an easier-to-use system and with closer support from AMS we can rely on the reports produced by the software to see how the business is performing – pretty much at any time we want to.
Contractor – West Midlands
A non-EU client made a claim to recover VAT paid on services delivered to them in the UK. This was an intriguing claim which focused on the contract and location where the services were delivered.
AMS provided my company with an exceptional level of support over several months, in both dealing with HMRC and bringing this to a successful resolution.
I was able to carry on running my business as normal – knowing that AMS is looking after my affairs.

“I would like to record my appreciation of the prompt service and attention to detail I received from your employees Chris Newbold and Matthew Chapman in response to a request for various pieces of information to support a mortgage application. In my opinion, this sets your company apart from the competition and I am very happy, when asked for my opinion, to recommend your services.”
“I am very satisfied about the dealing of my tax return by Miss Cowper. I am very pleased with the responsiveness and content received. It was a much better experience than with my former adviser, who took a long time to understand the long term incentive scheme of our company and the need to correct the return twice. Miss Cowper has provided me with prompt and detailed answers to all of my questions and was able to explain everything very clearly as well as clear instruction for enabling AMS to submit my tax return.”
“I’m convinced that choosing AMS as my accountancy firm was the best decision I made. Thank you for your crystal clear explanations.”

AMS work as a trusted extension of The Business Exchange team and are always quick to respond to any queries we may have. They have a ‘happy to help’ attitude and deliver information or advice in a simple and non-condescending way. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with them.”
The Business Exchange South West
“As usual I am impressed by AMS preparing my annual company accounts in concert with my personal tax return. Even as an accountant, I always have lots of questions and associated queries on tax strategy. My queries are answered by return in a clear and concise manner. It takes the pain out of tortuous process and I am confident that the accounts are accurate and reflect good tax planning. I was even more impressed this year when I found out that the staff dealing with me, Laura and Aqduss, are new additions to the AMS team. Well done AMS, as ever, quality first.”
“I was passed on AMS’s details by a colleague of mine when I became a limited company. Their service has been and continues to be exceptional and allows me to concentrate on my work rather than worrying about the financial/tax side. They quickly respond to any questions that I have in a clear and succinct manner and simplify this otherwise complex world. As a consequence I will now be using them also for my personal tax returns.”
