"I have known John for over 5 years and in that time have been thoroughly impressed with his honesty and enthusiasm. John and I have worked together to secure the most effective vehicle solution both for his own business and for his clients.

Thirst Solution Ltd

I am a consultant in the area of children’s child protection. I created my limited company in 2007 with the help of TaxAssist Accountants. John Mayer has helped me to develop my understanding of business and in particular how a limited company needs to operate. I feel Mr Mayer is a great help and has gone over and above his role as an accountant. TaxAssist can be trusted to follow up on all business promptly and efficiently. taking the stress out of dealing with the Inland Revenue. I highly recommend TaxAssist and in particular John Mayer as he goes ‘the extra mile’ on all matters.

Christina Caley / Christina Caley Ltd

I started my own business over ten years ago. As a sole trader, it quickly became apparent that there was enough to do without worrying about working out my own accounts and keeping on the right side of the Her Majesty’s Government Revenue collectors! I tried John Mayer at TaxAssist then and I’ve been with them ever since. You get personal service, timely reminders and readily accessible expert advice – with the comfort of knowing that your accounts will be properly filed and clearly explained to you.

I have known John Mayer for just over a year and within that time I have known John to be honest and trustworthy. He is always ready with information, support and nothing is too much trouble. He is genuinely approachable and a great person to deal with. I highly recommend John and the services he provides.

Kelli Gould, The Wine Tasteing Company Limited

John and the team at TaxAssist have been completing my accounts and tax returns for at least ten years, and have always done a thorough, timely, and accurate job. I live in Manchester, so we don’t meet very often, but I know John’s valuable advice and support are only an email away. I am a sole trader with a modest turnover and his brand of friendly support is exactly what I need.

Alison Tonks

Life’s complicated enough without having to worry about the dreaded Inland Revenue. John takes the worry out of business accounting by delivering a friendly, professional and efficient service. He offers excellent start-up support and advice, and is assisted by a robust team who share his open and professional approach. John and the WSM TaxAssist team make my life easier which as a small business owner is just what I need.

Sharon James HR Solutions Limited

I have known John Mayer and the team at Tax Assist, Weston Super Mare, for 6 years. In that time I have found them to be extremely helpful and informative, and extremely approachable. I am always confident that my accounts will be filed on time and will have been gone through in a professional manner. If I have any questions the team will always have the time to answer them either by telephone, e-mail or in person. My confidence in the team at Weston is so great that I recommended them to my daughter and son in law, who have now been with them for 5 years. I would have no reservations what so ever in recommending the team .

Paul Fermandel Paul’s Taxis

Tax Assist (WsM) staff removed the fear and uncertainty of setting up my company and producing my first tax returns. They were always on hand to answer my questions and through their pension seminar I now have a pension for the first time in my life. I would highly recommend them to anyone setting up their own business. Many Thanks Clare

Clare Stephenson FW Resource Limited

I have known John for a number of years now and have also met some of his clients. He is unfailingly friendly, helpful and good fun but combines this with a determination to provide his clients with an excellent and professional service. I have also witnessed the caring attitude he shows towards his staff who respond positively thereby improving customer service still more. I can thoroughly recommend him as an accountant but unfortunately not as a golfing partner.

Daryl Cornelius /Lending Services Ltd

I have known John Mayer professionally for a number of years. John is a well known and respected member of the local business community. He strives to give his clients a first class service by getting to know them and their business; always willing to share with them his business experience. John is backed up by an experienced team and I have no hesitation recommending them to any small business looking for a professional accountancy service at a competitive price.

Jim Hoyle ACA, Consultant, ARAG Plc

I have been with John and TaxAssist for 6 years and have found his accountancy service to be excellent. The team at TaxAssist are friendly, professional and are always there to provide support, particularly with timely reminders when your accounts are due. John is far more than an accountant in that he will often make introductions and refer work between his clients. Definitely a good guy and he has been very helpful to me and my business and therefore I am very happy to recommend his services.
