"I have worked with John over a number of years with at least two differeing businesses. Apart from the good value of Johns work and his subject knowledge, the most impressive attribute is his approachability. I believe John really cares about his work and the service he and his team provide for his clients. I would have no hesitation in recommending John."

I have known John both professionally and through networking (and golf) for 2 years, and would always recommend him for his professionalism and attention to detail. He is a good organisor of charity golf days too!” March 3, 2011
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.
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 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.
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.
I have known John for some time and have always found him to be very personable, professional and most importantly knowledgable - he is highly experienced and I would not hesitate to recommend him to a business, whatever the size, to provide tax advice and a great accountancy service.”
'I have worked with John at Taxassist for many years.
Great service, keen prices and always takes an interest in your business'
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.
If your looking for an accountant that speaks to you in a non technical way, John's your man!!! Very down to earth and always the first to lend a helping hand!!!!” October 7, 2009

"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.
John is always eager to understand his clients needs and to do his best to fulfill them.
I would happily recommend John to any business who wants an accountant that will work with them rather than just for them."
John Has done everything it said on the tin and has reaped the rewards his business has gone from strength to strength , he leads by example and is a great team player and I am confident there is more to come . Keep up the good work John Well Done”
As a member of the Federation of Small Businesses, John joined the Weston Branch Committee a couple of years ago. Recently I have, on several occasions had cause to meet him at his offices & find him to be a true professional of the highest integrity and very knowledgeable. I would have no fear in recommending John & Tax Assist to any of our clients.

I have known John for over 4 years and we have worked together on a number of projects. He has the highest integrity and is always looking to do the best for his clients. He truly believes in helping local businesses and is highly thought of. I thoroughly recommend John and Tax Assist!”
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.
“John is an excellent employer with a forwardthinking outlook. He has a strong community enriching ethos and has kindly spoken at and sponsored Chamber events. John has also taken the time and effort to promote accountancy as a profession to the students of Weston College.”
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.
I met John through 4Networking and can honestly vouch for his amiability, credibility & warmth.
John is a great networker with a superb reputation and I would recommend to any business - especially in the North Somerset area - that they speak to him."
"I have not used john’s services but have known john for about 18months now maybe longer and what I can say that he has always come across as very personable and very knowledgeable within his profession, I know of people who have used john’s services and they all highly recommend him"
“I have known John for several years. We were introduced through business and I have come to know him in a personal capacity too. John is hard working, personable and dedicated to his clients. John and I share a number of clients all of whom have provided me with very good feedback. John's business is refreshing because he offers a quality service to small and medium sized owner managed businesses at affordable rates.”

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.
I referred a client of mine to John for some personal tax advice. John's advice was clear and pragmatic and ensured that my client achieved a satisfactory solution.”
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 .
As our business has grown, TaxAssist has been able to tailer the services we requre and offer us a full accountancy, bookkeeping, taxation and payroll service. This has allowed us to concentrate on our business growth and profitability. Thank you for your help so far and we look forward to working together in the future.
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.
