Michael Paul Accountants


“knowledgeable, efficient and easy to talk to”

I can sum up Mike and Paul very easily ‘knowledgeable, efficient and easy to talk to’.  That’s not a combination you always get from an accountant.

“massive support”

Michael Paul have been our accountants since 2012 and have been a massive support to us.  We have complete confidence in them, which is very important when dealing with issues which can sometimes be complex to understand.  I know they always have our best interests at heart, and nothing seems too much trouble for them.

“In good hands”

The advice given to me by Mike and Paul when starting my business was invaluable.  It’s a great comfort to know that I can contact them at any time, with any questions, and they will respond promptly and explain things in a way I can understand.  This enables me to focus on the day to day running of my business knowing that the accounting side of things is in good hands

“Helpful and supportive”

When I decided to take on the task of maintaining the day to day accounts of the Oat Hill public house and restaurant myself, rather than outsource them to a bookkeeper, I approached Michael Paul Accountants. Their help has been invaluable and their method of training was excellent, teaching me how to use the system over a period of time. Helpful and supportive, I would highly recommend them.

“Professionalism and efficiency”

Michael Paul Accountants arrived at my office and quickly brought professionalism and efficiency to my financial paperwork – giving me the time and confidence to concentrate on the main side of my business, safe in the knowledge that all accounts are bang in order. Paul has taken the time and trouble to understand my company and the particular – some would say ‘peculiar’ way it works, improve my working practices – and all the while enduring the attentions of a small and particularly boisterous puppy!

“A pivitol cog in our wheel”

It’s vitally important as a company director and sole employee (in my case) of your new or established company that you are in full control of all the components of your business. Competition in any market you work in is fierce that’s why your business needs to be as nimble as possible and be able to affect and react to situations in an instant. From personal experience I found that having to work on my own tax issues and using poor accountants before is a serious lag on my business and ability to control the large and macro picture. This causes great stress and unnecessary worry.

I am very pleased to this end that I was recommended to Michael Paul Accountants. My business is recruitment and with different invoices for contract, temp and perm workers and complex tax issues surrounding each category coupled with the nature of the delayed payments involved it is vital that the company is on top of these issues. Michael Paul Accountants are an extension of my business here. They don’t just execute the complex issues surrounding the Tax & VAT of the company but put forward suggestions and think three dimensionally for me. This is why its not just a 2 dimensional service like other accountants with big brands I have used before, but an extension of the business I run and thus a pivotal cog in our wheel.

I can’t recommend Michael Paul Accountants enough.

“relaxed and friendly”

Mike and his business partner Paul have given, and are continuing, to give, excellent service to me. They are very professional in their approach, and relay information in a relaxed and friendly manner. I am a financial adviser, and access to professional tax experts who are very switched on, is invaluable to me.”

“Knowledge, expertise and professionalism second to none”

After completing my AAT’s I was eager to expand my accounting knowledge. Paul kindly offered his services as a mentor on a one 2 one basis. The level of support and training that Paul gave has proved invaluable as I am now able to produce management accounts and have the confidence to put these into practice. Paul has played an integral part in supporting my development and the new skills I have gained will be critical to my future career and also provide a support to my ongoing studies. His knowledge, expertise and professionalism are second to none. I would recommend his services to anyone, as a mentor or accountant!

“Nothing is too much trouble”

Nothing is too much trouble for Paul. He is incredibly patient and answers even the most simple of questions in a way I completely understand. He had helped me more than I can possibly say, and is someone I trust implicitly. Being the owner of a small business means you need to wear lots of hats, but Paul is always there to support me through any potential financial quagmires. I would recommend him to anyone. He’s fab.

“Coffee’s not up to much!”

Paul and Mike at Michael Paul Accountants have handled my accounts for several years now and have been absolutely pivotal in getting my affairs in order for me to successfully move forward. They have been patient when I’ve asked daft questions and thorough in their dealings on my behalf. As a consequence I know I’m in a much better place now than I was before we worked together.They were, are and will be a very important part of my business and long may that continue. Their coffee’s not up to much though.

“Friendly & Professional”

Michael Paul Accountants have helped us over the past few years and long may that continue. They provide a friendly and professional service that we would have no trouble in recommending to others. Ruth and I are always greeted with a smile and a sincere outlook. Their service makes working through the minefield of Tax and company finances a lot easier to navigate. And as ‘Common Sense Counselling’ continues to grow and expand, we are sure that we will be seeking, and using, their advice and guidance even more. It is indeed a pleasure to count Paul and Michael as our accountants (no pun intended).

“That’s not always something you can expect from an accountant”

It’s an absolute pleasure to have Paul as my accountant.  Paul deals with my tax and financial affairs professionally, but delivers a personal, supportive and highly valued service.  I know I can trust him and it’s great to be able to speak to Paul frankly and often informally about financial issues.  That’s not always something you can expect from an accountant, but you can with Paul and he’s become a valued friend as well as a professional colleague.  I’ve recommended Michael Paul Accountants to colleagues, friends and family and will continue to do so. I also know that close family members put their trust in Michael Paul Accountants to handle their financial affairs too.
