Reviews for Simpkins Edwards

Don't just take our word for it - these testimonials from our happy clients speak for themselves.

"Mark, Nick and the team have been brilliant in helping us with all our accounting needs. Always happy to help and make time to come into our practice to meet in person. The team have also been extremely helpful filling bookkeeping gaps for us when we have had members of staff on maternity leave. They have also provided in house training support which has been invaluable."

Contemporary Dental - May 2024

I would like to say a special thank you to the Simpkins Edwards team for the help and support you give us with payroll, expenses, quarterly meetings etc. What I find the most beneficial are the management reports I receive after every meeting with you.

Having these reports helped us to visualise and plan for the next 3-12 months, knowing that we will be on the safe side as much as possible in the current financial climate :)

Again, a big think you for being part of our business.

Dr Liana Budurin, Optident Dental Clinic - May 2024

"I’ve worked with Simpkins Edwards for a few years. Their dental-specific management reports allow me to understand my business, track key performance metrics and make strategic business decisions based on accurate information.

Sam and Mark are approachable, responsive, and willing to share their industry insight. Finally I have accounts that aren’t just a compliance exercise!"

Jason Singh, Principal Dentist, The White House Dental Practice - May 2024

Simpkins Edwards have been with us since we acquired our first practice in 2016. They have helped us no end and been a constant support to the business.

They also manage our personal tax (and various other companies) and support us brilliantly in our personal endeavours as we climb the property ladder and strive. We heartily recommend them to you.

Andrew Brundan, Redcliffe Dental Practice - May 2024

"If I could give SE more than 5 stars, I would! Their expertise in handling financial matters is truly remarkable. From the moment I engaged with them, their professionalism and skill were evident. Not only are they friendly and approachable, but they are also efficient and very good at explaining complex financial concepts in a way that's easy to understand. - they took the time to ensure I grasped every detail, no matter how intricate. This level of dedication made me feel confident and assured throughout the entire process. Today's  dentistry is a business and we have to know the numbers in real time and we need the guidance on how to change in real time not once a year, 12 months after the year end.

Simpkins Edwards delivers!!! I would definitely recommend the Team at SE"

Dr Alan Bookey, Albany Dental Centre - May 2024

"Choosing Simpkins Edwards as our dental accountant was one of the best decisions we made for our practice. Mark, Sam, Nick, and the team are not only excellent accountants but also incredibly approachable. They provide quick responses to all our financial queries and offer great advice.

The quarterly management accounts have been instrumental in helping us focus on areas needing attention and plan for future success. Sam's deep understanding of our business and willingness to tailor our financial strategy to our goals have been invaluable. 

Thanks to their expertise, our practice is on solid financial ground, and I highly recommend them to any dental practice looking for top-notch accounting services."

Dr Elaine Haworth Principal Dentist, Willaston Dental Care - May 2024

"Working with Mark and Sam from Simpkins Edwards has been a game-changer for our business. They don't just crunch numbers - they present the data in a clear and user-friendly format that makes understanding our financial performance a breeze.

And if something isn't immediately clear? No worries! Mark and Sam are always happy to explain things in more detail, no matter how basic the question. They truly believe there's no such thing as a silly question.

Their insightful breakdowns of our financials have been instrumental in our ability to reflect on past quarters and strategize for the future. We couldn't be happier with their service!"

Amy & Stuart Barnes The Lytham Dental Clinic - May 2024

“I needed something where I could see how we performed last month, and what effects a decision I made six weeks ago had on the last month, rather than finding out 12 months, or more, later. I like having an accountant that genuinely has the best interests of my business at heart. And despite having probably hundreds of clients, they understand my business as well as I do.”

Dr Sam Reid, Paddock Dental

"I have been a client of Simpkins Edwards for a number of years now, having switched over from a different accountancy firm. Mark and Sam offer a professional yet personal service. Whereas other accountancy firms take days or even weeks to respond to queries or requests for advice, Mark and Sam respond immediately and you always get the feeling they prioritise your requirements and financial matters. I trust their advice and they are able to convey the information in easy to understand terms which is invaluable to me. We catch up at the end of every quarter and go through the accounts in detail. Their help and advice made the whole process of acquiring a second practice as seamless as possible. I would highly recommend Simpkins Edwards for your accountancy needs"

Dr Ansa Akram, owner of Ocean Orthodontic Clinic and Devon Square Orthodontics - May 2024

"We are quite new clients to Simpkins Edwards and wish we had joined them sooner! Their knowledge of the dental industry is excellent so they really understand our business, the challenges we face and how to help us. We have regular contact by email, calls and in person which makes it feel like they are a part of our team. Working with them gives us incredible peace of mind and we cannot recommend them highly enough."

The Dental Implant Clinic - May 2024

"I've had the pleasure of working with Sam and Jon at Simpkins Edwards for the past year, and I can confidently say they've been instrumental in streamlining our financial operations with bookkeeping and producing meaningful management reports. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and timely communication have made our collaboration seamless and productive. I highly recommend their services to anyone seeking trusted financial expertise."

House of Dental - April 2024

"Julie Rose was very good in helping me through the process of selling the farm and the tax implications, and what the best options were for me. All the girls in the Bovey Tracey office are very courteous & helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble. Simpkins Edwards is a good company and easily accessible through phone and email. The location of the office is also very useful in the fact that you can park right outside." Mrs J W Soper –  August 2021

"Simpkins Edwards have been acting for us since they took over from Adam’s & Co in 2014, and since then Julie Rose has been absolutely brilliant, she gets our business and understands where we are coming from.

Mark Simic was also very helpful in helping us convert from a Limited company to sole ownership. Simpkins Edwards are very easy to deal with and make the accountancy side easy to understand." Claire Sherlock – August 2021

"I’ve been using the services of Simpkins Edwards since July 2019 when I started my company. Since then we have progressed to over a £1m turnover, which we could not have achieved without SE. David Williams and Hannah Rookes, amongst other great team members, have been simply outstanding. I knew nothing of business and accounting when I started, no question has been too much trouble and their responsiveness to my queries and need for advice has been first class. I have recommended people to SE and will continue to do so. I believe they provide top quality advice and service at very decent rates. Thank you to everyone who has helped us so far." Alan Baldwin Services Limited, March 2021

"I received an introductory course in QuickBooks from Bickie Thompson in order to help me manage the transition to Making Tax Digital. I’m a bit of a luddite as far as administration goes and was dreading having to handle VAT and self assessment taxes digitally, but found the process, as explained by Bickie, clear and logical. She was also able to help with my first digital VAT return over the phone. I’m now looking forward to not having to face an avalanche of paper every time I open my books!" November 2019

"Since joining Simpkins Edwards we feel more confident and enthusiastic to expand our business. We really value Julie Rose for her advice and input. She has always been helpful, prompt and efficient in dealing with our business.

We can’t speak highly enough of the professional and personal service that we have received since joining Simpkins Edwards, and would absolutely recommend them to our friends and family." Tina and James Baskerville, Lammacott Farm, July 2019

"Mark Simic has been looking after our Dental Practice Accounts (and personal accounts) for the past 3 years. I could not recommend him and his team more highly. Good guys and nice to deal with. We have real time insight into the performance of our business thanks to the systems he put in place, and the quarterly reviews with Mark are extremely helpful – getting us to focus on simple things/areas that can be improved to boost our top/bottom lines. Seeing your performance in black and white each month takes away the uncertainty – and allows us to make good decisions continuously. Highly recommend." Andrew Brundan, March 2019

"I have been working with Mark Simic at Simpkins Edwards since early 2018 and I cannot recommend their services enough. Mark and his team have been brilliant since day one. They look after my personal accounts, which has been a huge help – but they also helped open a Limited Company for my new business, it is on this side of things that I have been really impressed with everything they offer, as I wouldn’t have been able to grow the business without their help and support. I work closely with Sonia Cleave and Sam Johnson on a weekly basis as they raise our invoices and keep a close eye on everything on the accounting side, so I don’t have to. Their ongoing support, on all aspects is a really vital component for our growth plans. I really enjoy working with the team at Simpkins Edwards and trust them implicitly and have total confidence in everything they do. Thank you to Mark, Sonia, Sam and the rest of the team for all your expertise so far and I look forward to your continued support for many years to come. I would highly recommend engaging with Simpkins Edwards, I’m confident that you’ll be impressed with the variety of services offered." Adam Turner, March 2019

"March 2018, I began my own business of a pop-up restaurant alongside my full-time job. Whilst not the most complicated tax case James Welton gave me the impression that the needs of my business meant as much to him as some of the larger clients he may take care of. I have been using the services of James and Simpkins Edwards for over 6 months now, the advice is tailored to my business needs and not a generic format one size fits all approach. I anticipate the application of Simpkins Edwards expertise will help my business grow, as efficient account management will allow me to reinvest in infrastructure and equipment." Daniel Tugwell, Nomad Dining, March 2019

"Simpkins Edwards, more specifically James Welton, has been managing my personal accounts for the past four years, and the service I have received has been excellent. My tax returns and investment portfolio includes property rentals and overseas shares, all of which requires depth of knowledge and ability to tackle complex UK and international tax implications. James has consistently been incredibly diligent and responsive to my tax requirements, providing solid professional service. James and his staff have always been very professional, polite and efficient. I would recommend Simpkins Edwards to anyone who is looking for a highly professional, friendly and reliable accountant." Kerris Lockwood – February 2019

"I have been a client of Simpkins Edwards for over 10 years during which time the firm has provided me with consistent and invaluable support during the period I practiced as a sole trading PR Consultant and through to incorporation of the business. This has included my annual accounts, personal and corporation tax, VAT returns and training for my own accounts package. Between the strategic advice provided by partner Mary Jane Campbell and the hands-on practicality and financial hand-holding from the meticulous Rebekah Randall, Simpkins Edwards has always given me the confidence to act in the knowledge that support will be there when I need it. They have looked after me without being intrusive, made suggestions where they thought I could benefit and, by keeping ahead of the game and ensuring that I understand my finances and tax situation far in advance, they have never sprung any nasty surprises on me. I’d certainly recommend them." Mr Devons, February 2019

"Mann Management Solutions LTD is in its 3rd year working with Simpkins Edwards. What has impressed Carole and myself has been the friendliness and helpfulness, as well as the clarity and expertise that we have benefited having our client relationship with Simpkins Edwards. Our account manager, James Welton, demonstrates informed proficiency of the current legal position for the ever-changing legal climate for business such as ours. His experienced advice and recommendations have helped steer our business in a successful direction. We heartedly recommend Simpkins Edwards to others, so they too can benefit in the development of their businesses." Michael Mann, Mann Management Solutions Limited, February 2019

"Really pleased to have transferred to QuickBooks and with Timothy’s help and advice it all went very smoothly. Any learning problems I had with QuickBooks, Timothy soon pointed me in right direction. Thanks for all the help and advice." March 2018

"Simpkins Edwards have been preparing our annual accounts since 1992 following a recommendation. Their services have always been very helpful and they are extremely easy to get hold of. They give us great accounting advice as well as preparing our accounts." Ag-Bag Systems, March 2018

"I have been working with Simpkins Edwards for 5 years following a recommendation from a friend. Not only do they offer brilliant services but are also very good at giving advice on an array of financial subjects. My previous accountants would simply look at the books and do the their minimum. Simpkins Edwards are always willing to go the extra mile and help in as many ways as they can which makes all the difference." Mr C Hudd, March 2018

"From a loss-making dairy farm to an industrial estate and large container storage side Julie Rose has guided me through the maze of financial hurdles that I have encountered on the journey. She has always been there on the end of a telephone, by email or by site visits as required to provide appropriate advice. In particular by regularly visiting my premises she is fully aware of the peculiarities of the property which ensures that the advice she is giving is not just of a general nature but relevant to my circumstances. The taxation advice that Julie has given throughout this rather rapid development has been invaluable and always pertinent to my situation. I have no reservation in heartily recommending Julie to other potential clients." Mr A J White, Mid Cornwall Self Storage, January 2018
