About Us

Barry McGougan joined TaxAssist Accountants in February 2001. His background prior to joining TaxAssist was in economic development working mainly with small manufacturing businesses. With this background, Barry well understands the problems facing small businesses and the need for them to concentrate on their core activities, knowing their accountancy needs are being effectively managed

Barry says – “I believe in providing a quality service which my clients recognise as being excellent value for money. I deal directly with all my clients at a time and place convenient for them and not when it suits me. An independent customer satisfaction survey produced a 95% satisfaction rating amongst Barry's clients. A rating, the authors of the report commented, was amongst the highest they had reported on.

If your looking for an accountant that will take a personal interest in your business then give Barry & his team a call.

Ten years ago, I made the best decision of my business life.

At that time, my accountant was nearing retirement, when I received a call asking if I would be interested in a meeting with Barry McGougan of TaxAssist Accountants.

I'm glad I agreed because as they say, the rest is history. Barry immediately grasped what my accountancy requirements were, especially the problems I was having with PAYE and tax credits, and I felt a great weight being lifted from my shoulders.

The next improvement was moving me from a manual bookkeeping system that was taking me 1.5 days a week to maintain to a bookkeeping software that now only consumes 2hrs per week, leaving me with more time to concentrate on my business.

4 years ago with Barry's help and guidance I moved from being a sole trader to a Limited Company a move that has certainly saved on my tax bill.

This year, again with input from Barry I have opened another outlet in Saltcoats and my sister who had worked for me for the past 21 years became a Director and shareholder.

I have come along way in the past 10 years and I can honestly say that if it had not been for the close relationship I have with Barry and his team at TaxAssist Accountants and the expert advice, guidance and hand holding they have provided me, I doubt very much if I could have acheived what I have.

I now regard Barry and his team of Lisa, Lesley and Graeme as an extension of my business always there when I need them. Nothing is ever a problem with them and every question (no matter how stupid)is answered.

I look forward to many more years of working alongside TaxAssist Accountants.

Signed up with TaxAssist Accountants in May 2006 whilst operating as a sole trader. Since then my business has grown to such an extent that in May 2008 I formed a Limited Company.

Barry’s advice and guidance over this period of growth and transformation has been invaluable and although I make the final decisions, I only do so, following discussion with Barry.

Barry and his team have made a positive impact on the growth of my business and for that I am truly grateful.

To anyone considering changing their accountant or appointing one for the very first time, I cannot recommend TaxAssist Accountants highly enough and would urge them to speak with Barry and his team in the first instance.
