How it works

Our offices

I met Nigel when I had just started up my business. Over the next 2 years, Nigel provided invaluable support and advice as I grew my business to sales of £500,000. He is always available when I need his help


Expert accountant, with High Integrity and Personable, Nigel has saved me money! He has submitted my tax return and I am due a refund; I thought I would owe tax, but Nigel's good knowledge and probing questions drew out information that transformed the tax situation. I always knew he was good, and now I have proof. Definitely 5 star team

M Chavasse

Thanks yet again Nigel for your very prompt and professional service - it is very much appreciated. My business is thriving now and as a small business it is good to know that I can call on the professional and friendly services of TaxAssist Accountants. I am pleased that you will be handling my future business affairs.  


I set up my business in June 2006 and choose Nigel Lomax from Tax Assist to be our accountant. From our very first meeting I felt confident that our accounts were in good hands. The advice Nigel has provided us during our first year of trading has been excellent, the people we have dealt with and the services provided has been first class. We highly endorse Tax Assist and look forward to a long lasting working relationship.

Andrew Durkan

We went to TaxAssist Accountants on the recommendation of an associate and have had nothing but a good quality of service from Nigel and his team. We trust their advice and the fact that we can call them on the telephone at anytime... Being a newly formed limited company we've had such a huge amount of work to do in a short time however, having their support and advice has made the process so much smoother Russell Tonge, Company Director, DTR Logistics Ltd

DTR Logistics Ltd

When you are running a small business and putting everything you have into it time wise - you need someone who will handle all your tax affairs so that you do not have any worries or have to spend precious time on them - so thank you Nigel for all your help and assistance since we joined you - we feel very confident in our tax affairs with you in charge!  

Julia and Martin Webb - Spinning Your Dreams Wedding Photography

We appointed Nigel Lomax of TaxAssist Accountants as our accountant in October, 2007. We had just started trading. Since then Nigel has supported our growth by bringing us fully up to speed with Sage Line 50 and ensuring that we meet all our deadlines regarding limited company accounts, corporation tax returns, VAT and payroll. We have found Nigel to be friendly, reliable and very well-informed on business and tax matters.

Mrs A Jones

"Fast, efficient, helpful and very professional" are the words I would use to describe my first encounter with Nigel Lomax at Tax Assist. I would highly recommend Nigel and his team to anyone who is looking for a good service. M. McCarthy MJ Flooring

Mrs M McCarthy

Thanks once again for your prompt response to my query. You are the first accountant I have had who has enabled me to understand what is going on! I appreciate the way that I can raise a query and get a fast response, even when I know you are busy. You certainly help to remove some of the worries of running a small business. Thank you.

Mr G Cutler

Dear Nigel, Julie, Craig and all the team at TaxAssist, Shrewsbury. May I take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the speed and efficiency with which you processed my accounts, within one week my company accounts were completed and duly registered on line. When I need a question answering you can always deal with my query straight away, and take the worry out of running a part of the business that is alien to me. Thank you for all your help this year.

We appointed TaxAssist Accountants to look after our payroll. The payroll team were brilliant sorting out a number of issues for us including a dispute with an employee over their pay. Helge in particular has been excellent.

Brain Phillips - MobiTyre

Nigel Lomax just reviewed our End of Year Accounts and, as usual, I cannot praise him highly enough. He was easily able to sort out SAGE issues that my book-keeper could not. He completed the process swiftly and painlessly and was able to explain any alterations that he had made in good, plain English. Thank you, Nigel - you are a Star

E Harris

I selected Nigel after researching the market as a start-up business in 2007 and have not been disappointed. Nigel's knowledge and wealth of experience has helped me get to grips with the raft of issues facing a new business, and gives me confidence that I am operating within HMRC's rules. In summary, Nigel and his team at TaxAssist Shrewsbury have provided a cost-effective and reliable service and they always respond to queries quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

MyHome (Shrewsbury)

I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was recently to deal with such a professional company regarding my first year's accounts. As my knowledge on these matters was limited, the advice given and the manner in which my requirements were handled were a credit to your company. The speed and level of communication received was very much appreciated and it meant I could get on with running my business without having to worry. I will certainly be recommending TaxAssist Accountants to my friends and colleagues.

Dear Elizabeth, Thank-you for your kindness is helping me to understand my completed 2008/09 accounts today. And apologies for taking up all of your lunch break! I have found the time that you have spent invaluable. Best wishes, Brendan

Mr B Tuer

Our business has been with Nigel Lomax and the team at Shrewsbury Tax Assist since we turned Limited in 2005. Having a local firm with a national outlook taking care of all our tax interests has saved us a lot of time, effort and money. I would recommend Tax Assist to any medium or small business and have done many, many times.

T John Pearce

When I first went into business for myself I feared that accounts was a dark-art of which I was not a part, and thus I was concerned that it might prove complicated, full or jargon, and expensive to employ an accountant. Instead I have found that working with Nigel Lomax & Tax Assist Accountants that I have a friendly and professional service that provides invaluable guidance, in a language that makes it understandable to me, which is value for money, and which I trust. I would recommend Nigel to anyone who wishes to experience the same.

Mr T Richards

I chose Tax Assist Accountants because their advert gave me confidence about their business management, and gave the impression that they were professionals. When I spoke to the team on the telephone I found them to be approachable and indeed when I went to meet their representatives they were very professional and supportive. Their willingness and ability to work in complex circumstances was very evident and they have assisted me in dealing with the Inland revenue efficiently and effectively. I am very grateful for all their assistance provided at competative rates and would not hesistate to recommend them to any one requiring accountacy services.

Sharon Witterick

the great thing about Nigel and his team at TaxAssist is that they tell me what I need to know and don't bother me with things I don't

Mr K Said

I have to say that the service from TaxAssist Accountants is absolutely fantastic and far higher than many of your competitors.

Gaynor Gravestock - Synergy and Strategy

I appointed TaxAssist Accountants 5 years ago to prepare and submit my personal tax returns. I have always found the service prompt and efficient. They have also provided useful additional advice on matters such as pensions and inheritance tax planning.

Mr A Brown

Hi Natalie I just want to thank you for your prompt response to the Inland Revenues incorrect return this morning – nearly had a heart attack, as I have already paid them what I thought they needed, and spent a pile on renovations ....... so I am grateful for your expeditous assistance.

Nigel and his team at TaxAssist are always helpful and friendly. Nigel has been my business and our personal accountant for 3 years or more. Any problems I have are sorted out; nothing is too much trouble. I would be happy to recommend this excellent accounting office to those in need of a good accountant. 5 star rating.

Nigel has been our accountant for nearly a year now and has provided an excellent service. He is ever patient with my silly questions and always responds promptly to any queries I may have. He is a very approachable person and the other members of staff are also very pleasant and always ready to help. It makes me more confident to know that he is only a phone call or email away! I would not hesitate to recommend Nigel and the team to anyone looking for an accountant.

Dear Liz, I would like to thank you for your hard work on our accounts, which has all been turned around very quickly. I am also very grateful for your detailed responses to my questions, which in the case of VAT reclaim will lead to some savings for our company going forward. I'm sure you will say you're just doing your job, but I wanted to express my thanks for the extra effort you put into explaining the detail.

A&D Duncan Ltd

Always a thorough and excellent service from Nigel and his team. We have been with them for a number of years now and Nigel has always shown patience when we needed things explaining - which has been important over the last few exciting, dynamic years. We have total confidence in Nigel and we would recommend him to anyone looking for an Accountant for the first time or thinking of moving Accountant. Nigel's advice is timely and effective. Thank you for seeing us through changing times Nigel and we are very glad to say into increasingly more profitable times! All good!  

Julia and Martin Webb

Dear Liz and Natalie/ I found the book-keeping session yesterday very useful because you’ve shown me a way to considerably simplify what I have been doing. I think the session worked well for me because I am already familiar with Excel. It was also good to meet other business owners. Providing a readymade Excel spreadsheet will no doubt make your job easier, it will certainly make my life MUCH easier. I think that’s called a win win!

Nigel M

I called Taxassist with an urgent personal tax issue and they were happy to meet with me the same day at my convenience. My contact was Liz Tandy who was, as you would expect, totally professional and very calm. She made dealing with a painful situation as painless as possible! All the team I have come into contact with were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend Taxassist to individuals needing advice and help with tax issues. I really felt they had my best interests at heart and were prepared to fight my corner.


I have started working with Taxassist in 2008, it was and still money well spent. Their professional approach has put me in a very comfortable place. I can’t thank them enough Khalid Said Lean Vision Limited Director

Our company has used TaxAssist for 3 years to assist with all aspects of our accounting, they are extremely knowledgeable, approachable and friendly, and have provided an excellent, reliable service. It is a great relief as a small business, to know that all financial responsibilities are being carefully and accurately completed.

I just wanted to comment on the fantastic service we are getting from Taxassist Shrewsbury. In particular Liz Tandy who I must say is just brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble and she really does do everything possible to make us feel secure at C2. I know my wife constantly raves about how great Liz is so I just thought I would take two minutes out of my day to send this email.


Once again Nigel and his team have provided just the right advice when it was needed! I’ve been using TaxAssist Shrewsbury for several years and remain more than satisfied with their efficient and conscientious service. As a quality management consultant I know all about the importance of good service and customer satisfaction, and I have always been more than satisfied with the service that I have received. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any small business or sole trader. Many thanks again for your help.
