"I write to thank you for the services provided to Formula design by MoynanSmith Accountants.
I have had nothing but a great service from MoynanSmith Acountants. Darren is always available by either phone or email to assist me with any queries regarding my accounts or Quickbookss software. All of which are dealt with rapidly and professionally.
I would definitely recommend Darren and MoynanSmith Accountants to others.
Again I would like to thank you and I will continue to use your services."
Steven Jones - Formula Design
"Working with Darren & Jamie at MoynanSmith is a pleasure and we are happy to have them looking after us as a business, and to be able to refer clients to them.
The service is down to earth, honest and professional and we do not hesitate to recommend them.
Their proactive approach to accounting and tax advice is refreshing and innovative, and their client friendly ethos matches our own and perfectly complements what we want to achieve for ourselves and for our clients."
Pam Brown - Rachael Bell Wealth Management, Practice Manager
"When we first learned about the principle of Research and Development claims we were already three years into doing R&D activities BUT not benefiting from the tax benefits for doing so. It's fair to say we weren't doing Research and Development for the tax benefits - it was far more to advance our business - however the thought of paying less tax was music to our ears. We NEEDED to find out more.
Thankfully we didn't need a Tardis to go back in time and put things right...Darren and Jamie from MoynanSmith were able to look into our accounts and help us find qualifying expenditure, fill in all the required documentation and deal with HMRC on our behalf. It couldn't have been more straightforward.
We got a cheque from HMRC in the post a couple of weeks later for nearly ten times what they charged us to get it back! The best thing is though we've only processed the claim for our tax return three years ago, we've still got another two years to claim back. We are delighted with what MoynanSmith has done for us.
On reflection the problem we experienced is - we hadn't asked the right people to help us. Indeed, our own accountants didn't know enough about our business in order to properly identify opportunities for us. MoynanSmith are the right team and they could be for you. If you would consider their free "60 MINUTE HEALTH CHECK".
Previously HMRC were very happy because there were sat on a small pile of cash that should have been in the area's best Web Designer's bank account! No business should aim to make the tax man happy, we were and we didn't even know about it until Darren discovered it.
To summarise - a quick question: we are looking at five-figure savings, what would that look like in your bank account?"
Oliver Warnes - Web Industry, Director
"I would have no hesitations in highly recommending MoynanSmith to anybody looking for an experienced accountant with a great knowledge and who offers a very personal service.
Prior to using Moynan Smith we used one of the larger accountancy firms in Carlisle and we much prefer using MoynanSmith as it is a much more personal service and Darren is very approachable and knows every detail about our business.
The service we have received has exceeded our expectations. If I ever need a quick question answered or want to discuss something Darren always has time to talk either it being over the telephone or popping in at our home to run through things. Nothing is ever too much trouble.
MoynanSmith provide a personal and professional service. Darren is very knowledgable and explains things in a clear precise manner. Darren always keeps in touch and we speak numerous times each month as Darren likes to keep up to date with every aspect of our businesses and is always on hand to offer his expert advice.
MoynanSmith are a forward thinking accountancy firm offering sound advice in a professional and personal manner and I would have no hesitations in recommending them to anyone."
Caroline Quinn - Woodgrange Developments, Director
"By speaking to MoynanSmith, I learned that not all accountants are the same!
They helped improve what I had before and gave me: flexibility with meetings (outside of hours), peace of mind that my affairs are correct and I am not paying too much tax.
They provide excellent customer care - even though I am a small account, I feel I still get the best level of service.
I approached MoynanSmith after being advised to do so by a friend. Straight away it was obvious that they were not just another accountant. Quite clearly their tax knowledge and proactive advice can only be a benefit to us. Not only do I know my accounts and tax affairs are correct, but they also deal with our CIS and VAT affairs, leaving me to focus on my business."
A. Hull - A Hull Building and Joinery Ltd, Director and Owner
"After dealing with one of the big four accountancy practices in Carlisle since I started trading in 2014, I decided in March this year to change my accountant to MoynanSmith to obtain a more personal and better level of service.
All I can say is that Darren and Jamie are a pleasure to deal with, they have answered all of my questions which were left undealt with previously, and they have also made it simple and easy to finalise my year end accounts early.
Darren has also given me excellent tax and business structure advice and dealt with my tax affairs promptly.
This has all been done based on an upfront and agreed package. My previous experience had been if I rang or contacted my accountant, they charged as soon as they answered my query.
I can certainly highly recommend MoynanSmith for your accountancy, business and personal tax needs."
Peter Fleming - Busines Doctors Cumbria, Director
"I'd just like to thank you and your staff for the prompt and efficient manner in which you have prepared and presented my company accounts and personal tax liabilities.
Your service is excellent and highly recommended, I'm very pleased I appointed MoynanSmith as my accountant".
