Paul Drulia has been my accountant for my business since 2008. He has advised me on many tax matters in a very professional and knowledgeable manner. He has made it his business to find out all about my business and continually shows interest and enthusiasm for it.
I remember my mother once saying ‘he’s not like a doctor’ when talking about our family doctor. I know what she meant. The doctor was approachable, not intimidating and we felt we could speak to him about anything without feeling self- conscious.
Likewise, Paul isn’t like an accountant for the same reasons. I thoroughly enjoy working with him and feel he is an asset to my business.
In 2012 my husband and I had an opportunity to run our own business. Prior to this we had always been employed and therefore did not know too much about what was involved. A friend advised us that it was important to get things right from the start and recommended that we speak to Paul at PAD Tax Services.
I am so glad we took that advice. In our initial meeting, Paul reviewed our potential contracts and advised that there could be significant tax savings if we traded as a limited company. He set up the company for us, provided a personalised spreadsheet package suited to our business and trained me how to record income and expenses.
Every quarter I send him my spreadsheet, bank statements and paperwork and he files our vat returns. At this point, Paul also reviews how much dividends we can take from the company, how much tax we will owe on the profits to date and basically guides us through the annual cycle of accounts and tax returns.
We have found Paul’s advice and guidance invaluable and would have no hesitation in recommending him.
I am 62, have worked for international organisations in London for over 25 years and am now an Executive Coach/Marketing Consultant with a portfolio of 9 UK properties.
I have known Paul for around 8 years and 4 years ago decided to outsource my tax affairs. After meeting 5 different accountants, I chose PAD Tax Services and have been very pleased with this decision. Paul’s initial review of my previous 4 year’s tax returns delivered a tax refund of over £8,500 without any hassle. I find his service competitively priced, speedy, easy going and knowledgeable with regard to developing tax legislation.
Advice on foreign properties has been very clear. From experience, choosing PAD Tax Services as my business advisers has been a shrewd move.
PAD Tax Services have been extremely helpful in assisting me setting up my Limited Company. As a new, first time freelancer, I’ve found his quick responses and vast knowledge on accounting and tax incredibly valuable and I have already learned so much about the process in just the first few months.
Aside from being professional, Paul is also very personable and always at the end of the phone to explain things in more detail. I would definitely recommend PAD Tax Services to anyone looking for accounting support for their business.
PAD Tax Services have been our accountants for 5 years. Paul was recommended to us when we needed tax advice on a complicated business transaction.
Paul advised and sorted this out efficiently and quickly and he has been doing our accounts ever since. PAD Tax Services offer a fantastic service with very reasonable fees.
We have used PAD Tax Services for tax advice on our personal and business affairs for the past 4 years. Over this period we have found them to be efficient, knowledgeable and above all on top of ensuring our accounts and tax returns are filed on time.
Paul has recently guided us through setting up a new company with excellent advice on future tax planning. We would unreservedly recommend them to any new business wishing to get sound tax advice in order to minimise their tax liabilities.
Thanks Paul for all your valued assistance and advice over the past 7 years. The service you have provided has been excellent and we really appreciate your guidance and expertise regarding VAT, accounting and taxation.
