Robin Whitbread - Better You Ltd
"This was the first time that my business partner and I have entered into such discussions/negotiations, with third parties , about their ‘interest’ in our business.
Rob very quickly became a key member of our four man team in representing our interests. From the very start his very considerable experience was invaluable.
I was enormously impressed by the speed with which Rob gained a deep understanding of our business so that he was able to communicate , like one of us, the fundamental and intrinsic strengths, both today and in the future, of what we do and stand for. In a similar way , when challenged, Rob represented us wonderfully well.
Along the way, these third parties, through Rob as our ‘voice-piece’ , posted a number of questions and queries. Of course, this is to be expected, in such discussions ,but to have Rob’s thoughts and wise counsel available, so speedily and practically 24/7 ,was a huge support and comfort to us. Rob was extremely balanced in his considerations.
We leant much through the process , over the four months. And should the situation arise again , in the next couple of years , which it may well do, we would have no hesitation in asking Gibson Booth to work with us again and represent us in such negotiations.
So thank you very much for all you have done for us and the utter professionalism in the way you executed your responsibilities."
Mark Kenyon - Ark Lighting Limited
"The friendly team at Gibson Booth always provide very helpful and reliable information in a timely manner. A very professional organisation with strong leadership from Rob Watson and his fellow Directors."
"What Rob and his team don't know about keeping your finances in shape simply isn't worth knowing! They are a safe pair of hands to guide you through the financials, so you can concentrate on doing what you do best, running your business!"
Tom Burrows - Egger Turo Pumps (UK) Limited

Asif Khan - Globalhour Limited
“Having been with Gibson Booth for many years, I found myself needing advice to facilitate a restructure of my business interests. Gibson Booth had the knowledge and skill sets required to enable this and I felt happy in their capable hands, leaving them to deal with external parties and agencies. They helped me achieve a tax efficient sale of my business and I would be happy to recommend them to others, whether it be for regular accountancy services, or for one off specialist tasks.”
Allan Howcroft - Howcroft Industrial Supplies Limited
“In Gibson Booth, Robert Watson and his team, I have 100% confidence in finding the best solution in accountancy situations to benefit myself and my business. There are other accountants around, but no one can offer the same knowledge and service. Their attention to detail and efficiency is second to none. I would pay more every time for their expertise and as long as I need an accountant, Gibson Booth will be it!”
Kevin Ferriby - Informed Financial Planning
“I have worked closely with Gibson Booth for a number of years as part of a strategic alliance between our respective firms.
My dealings with him have always been conducted in a straightforward, open and professional way. He always puts the client’s interests first and I have no hesitation in recommending Robert and his firm.”

“Salary Solutions have been looking after our payroll needs for many years. The service we receive from the team is outstanding. All we do is provide the monthly amounts and they take care of everything else, it's that simple!
Any queries and questions are answered quickly and accurately, they have even gone above and beyond the call of duty, helping us many times with queries on employment laws and holiday entitlements. The modest cost versus the valuable benefit of having a team of experts on hand is an easy decision for us. Thank you to all the team at Salary Solutions for making our business lives so much easier.”
Simon Hakney - International Purchasing Group Limited
“Rob is an energetic, skilful, and knowledgeable accounting professional... he makes time to explain to me where the mistakes were made and provides steps for improvement.
His ability to work through my business transactions and understand my business operations enable Rob to offer me a “win-win” scenario when I was choosing my accountant.
If ever I had to hire Rob, I would do with my eyes closed; a definite asset to any company.”
