B20 Wessex Ltd has done a great job managing our year end accounts and payroll since we started our business in 2009. As our business has grown, they have kept us up-to-date with government changes in the workplace and tax credits for SMEs. They are a friendly and dedicated team.

After we switched from BDO, Colin Scull exclusively handled the accountancy and tax affairs for my Film & Broadcast Television Company for more than 10 years, until we sold the company 3 years ago. Colin continues to handle all personal accountancy and tax matters for me and my wife. We have always been delighted with the standard of service and sensible charges. We have no hesitation in highly recommending B20 Wessex.

B20 provides an extremely efficient accounting service. Colin is friendly, patient and approachable and explains the dark arts of accounts in a way even we can understand.

Colin has been working with us for over 10 years. His advice and assistance has been invaluable over this time and we have come to rely on his expertise in small business accounting. We now consider B20 to be a vital part of our operation.

I have known Colin for over 20 years in a professional capacity, I have always found him to be an honest, trustworthy and skilled accountant. He was Finance Director in my previous business. As B20 Wessex he provides monthly management figures for my businesses and prepares the year end accounts. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.


We have found B20Wessex Accountants to be extremely good. Their staff are very helpful and always polite. Colin Scull is an excellent Accountant and takes a great interest in the Company and ensures tax efficient solutions. We would highly recommend them.

I have been using Colin for over 16 years now. I have been very happy with his very professional service. In this time, we built a great relationship and he knows my business inside and out.

I couldn’t recommend highly enough. In fact, at every opportunity I do ! He has recently taken on a business next door to me, so they can experience his high level of service, professionalism and knowledge


It has been 7-or-so years that you have been managing our business accounts, and even longer with regard to our payroll.

B20’s management of our payroll needs for the past 10 years has made life much easier for us at the sharp end of staff payments. Your speed and quick responsiveness to any and all situations that arise has been second-to-none, with each and every query being managed within, at most, a day; but far more often within short hours. When errors have been made at our end, you have corrected them efficiently and without complaint; greatly assisting our business in presenting to our staff a valid payroll mechanism that possesses that essential ingredient; integrity.

Over the past 3 years, B20 has also manged our staff pensions, and once again your management of the NEST scheme has been flawless and immensely helpful to a small business that wouldn’t otherwise know what to do.

Of course, you have also been handling our accounts for some time now, both annual and management. In providing clear quarterly management accounts for both businesses, you help us stay on the ‘straight and narrow’ path…..and the speed of your production of these important documents is second-to-none, with them arriving within days of month’s end.

A similar story can be told for your handling of our annual accounts; you speedy, accurate efficiency is most helpful.

You supplement all accounts documents with a written summary, and this is most helpful in aiding our understanding of sometimes complex financial matters.

You have assisted with, or when necessary, handled, all our tax matters for the past 7 years, and you always provide clear instruction as to what to pay and when to pay it. In directly representing our businesses with HMRC on our behalf, B20 has always achieved the best outcomes for us, and your help and support allow us to rest easy at night!

Both in regard of accounts work and tax matters (personal, company/corporation and VAT), you have always been very happy to come to us (accounts issues, tax returns, VAT returns) at our convenience, which assists us greatly, and makes life so much easier for us.

I have found all B20 staff to be very helpful and courteous at all times, which makes interacting with B20 a very pleasant experience. However, I feel I must especially mention MANDY, who has been the bedrock of our payroll support for many years. Mandy’s payroll service support to our business has been exceptional, with every query and issue being managed quickly, efficiently, helpfully and very successfully. Further, If Mandy notices that we may have missed something then she will inform us! Magnificent!

Of course, your own personal helpfulness, availability and willingness to advise on what can be challenging and complex financial matters, reassures and assists us greatly. And, if I may say, your clear intentional to create a personal bond with your clients facilitates a relaxed and stress-free relationship in an area with business that could otherwise be fraught with stress and anxiety.

Overall, it seems that nothing is too much trouble for you and your staff, and this provides great comfort and support to us as a small business.
