Lisa provided a professional, friendly service for great value. I am clueless when it comes to tax, she was patient and clearly explained everything to me. I ended up with a repayment from the tax office thanks to her!! I will continue to use Walter Dawson and Son for all my accountancy and would recommend with 100% to anybody else.

Walter Dawson are by far the best accountants we've ever used for our business. Our Account Manager is so helpful, explaining anything we're unsure about and offering genuine advice to help us grow.
Their billing is straight forward, there's no hidden costs so you're not left with a hefty bill just for asking a question.
The wages department is equally brilliant and turn our monthly payroll around the same day I submit it.
100% recommended them!

Have used Walter Dawson for some time now and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Running a business is made much easier for me with my two main point of contacts at Walter Dawson. Sarah Heaton who does my payroll Is fast, efficient and can answer any questions with ease. Karen Blackburn who looks after my books is also fast and efficient and keeps me upto date on everything. Nothing is too much trouble.

Provided a very smooth transition from our previous accountants during what could have felt like a very daunting process. All members of staff are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.


Walter Dawson & Sons have been invaluable to our club over the many years of our relationship. They have helped us to steer through the complex world of VAT and we recently moved to SAGE and their assistance in this was of great help.
