“The client was a small sole trader approaching retirement age and winding down the business. The husband and wife had concerns on how they would financially manage once he stopped working full time. They had little pension contribution, small savings amounts and they were not optimistic about their future incomes.
Two years earlier the wife had started to receive a small state pension based only in the following years:
She had received “family allowance” for some 20+ years whilst the children were growing up and in full-time education. The clients did not know that these years counted towards her state pension qualifying years and therefore she had sufficient qualifying years for the full state pension.
After a short telephone call to the pension service, the client received a back payment of £3,500 and an increased state pension going forward. They still thank me for this golden piece of information whenever I see them.”

CPRS Ltd is a new company, and we did not know much about running the accounting side of a business as company directors. We appointed A G Smith & Co to form our company and run our PAYE. Everything was explained in a way that we could understand and absorb. Any questions, of which there were many, were expertly answered and explained.
We feel relaxed in running our business knowing that help is not far away.Gary Hamilton CPRS (Grimsby) Ltd
When arranging mortgages for my clients I often need to work with accountants when it comes to getting information on a client. I often find some accountants don’t even have the right qualification.
When dealing with A G Smith & Co, I have always found them to be extremely thorough and efficient in getting information to me. Their figures are always clear and easy to understand, which means I can get my clients' mortgages arranged and to offer that much faster.
It’s always a relief when I hear “A G Smith & Co is my Accountant”.Andrew Dulieu Independent Mortgage Advisor
I had used another accountant for 30 years. I wasn’t particularly happy with them but I never moved because I was under the misinterpretation that all accountants were the same.
But I after I had met with A G Smith & Co a couple of times, I can safely say that not all accountants are the same. Their experience and down-to-earth attitude is extremely impressive, and they picked up on something my previous accountant had kept putting off, which was going to be a big problem for me.
A G Smith & Co were extremely fast and professional in completing the job in one tenth of the time my previous accountant did and also under what they had quoted me. Andrew and his staff are a pleasure to deal with, and I have no hesitation in recommending the to anyone.Kevin Kinch
