Here’s some nice things people have said about working with Blue Penguin – and we didn’t even have to pay them. 

Which is useful as, unlike the flashy macaroni, the Blue Penguin doesn’t have much of a marketing budget

I have been running our business for 15 years, and in that time we have worked with a number of accountants. Peter and his team at Blue Penguin are quite frankly a breath of fresh air.

We feel totally secure with the advice they provide. They always look at situations from a different perspective and as such are creative in what they do. Peter is an absolute pleasure to deal with, and we feel very fortunate to have them. 100% recommend.

The Blue Penguin team have already improved our financial position, and as well as year-end accounting, are providing efficient, cost effective backstopping for payroll and VAT to support our growing business.

We have found their Remuneration Planning service particularly useful, enabling us to make informed decisions about staffing and pay levels that align with our business development strategy.

Peter has been incredibly helpful, supporting and advising me through the process. Communication is always very easy, and good-humoured. 

Numbers aren’t the most exciting things to talk about and his personable approach and sense of humour go a long way to lessening the burden of taxation! Thanks Peter!!

The BEST accountancy company I have EVER dealt with. From the initial booking to the on boarding Peter has been nothing short of incredible. 

He has been very understanding of my situations, accountancy needs and business as well as being extremely informative. Every step of the way I have known what is happening, why it is happening and what will happen next.

Peter is absolutely brilliant at cutting through the waffle and forms involved with personal tax and providing clear and helpful advice. 

He is also excellent at following up with easily distracted clients to make sure that the forms go where they need to go when they need to go there… I would not hesitate to recommend him.

If you have a small or start-up business I can confirm that Peter’s down-to-earth approach is something you’ll appreciate and just what you need.

It’s what you don’t get with the suits and the larger firms (not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just meeting a different need). He’s also quite fun to work with, which is half the battle.

Peter, Mark and the team are extremely efficient, professional & approachable.

Would highly recommend anyone to get in contact with any accountancy-related query they may have.

Blue Penguin makes it all very easy super to work with and very friendly!


Excellent service, can’t fault Peter and the team.

Very knowledgeable & efficient service

Blue Penguin have provided a steady supply of regular sensible well informed updates which have been extremely useful.

Plus some of their posts have made us laugh which has been useful during this time. I highly recommend Pete.

Peter is an accountant who you can genuinely like as a person! Very professional & knowledgeable service/support. 

Definitely recommend Peter and his team at Blue Penguin.

As an accountant, I have handled my husband’s tax returns for many years but I’d never felt entirely comfortable as personal tax isn’t my kind of accounting. 

When the changes to the tax on NHS pensions came along it was a huge relief to get advice from Peter and subsequently hand over all of the number crunching. He’s done a great job, my stress levels are way down and he manages to be hugely professional but still friendly and approachable at the same time. 

Peter, Mark and the team are not only extremely competent and speedy, but an absolute pleasure to deal with. They have gone above and beyond to ensure I understand my accounting options, and with some of the more complex elements of my business which operates in a somewhat niche field. 

I would not hesitate to whole-heartedly recommend Blue Penguin (and I frequently do!).

Excellent advice. Understands my sometimes complex business structure where others have been unable to grasp and advises accordingly. Nice guy to deal with too!

It’s refreshing to get tax advice that I can understand!

Blue Penguin provides Jasper with support for his accounts and tax returns. Peter is always available for a friendly and informative chat when advice is required. He provides a very timely and efficient accounting service.

Excellent service, always there when needed and everything is easily explained in easy to understand terminology. Never worry about dropping an email to them as I know I’ll get a speedy response.

Super efficient and very helpful with tax returns! I’ve been a client of Blue Penguin for years now and they always provide the most impeccable service.

Mark was extremely approachable and super efficient. What excellent service from start to finish. 

Amazing service from Blue Penguin! Highly recommend.

First class accountancy service and all round business advice – now handles all my business and personal accounts. 

The quality of the monthly management reports and commentary allows me to make informed business decisions and react quickly if there are any areas of concern.

Peter is absolutely brilliant at cutting through the waffle and forms involved with personal tax and providing clear and helpful advice. 

He is also excellent at following up with easily distracted clients to make sure that the forms go where they need to go when they need to go there… I would not hesitate to recommend him.

It’s no secret that my accountant is the infamous Peter Watkins. I moved to him a few months back. NOT because my last accountant was terrible, did something wrong or failed me in some way. She absolutely didn’t.

It’s just that Peter made accounting a breath of fresh air. I smiled when I saw the call come in rather than groaning because he makes it so easy and, well, fun.

I have recently started using Peter for our company accountancy and advisory – and have already recommended him to half a dozen other people! 

If you want an accountant who is proactive, ‘gets’ the needs of SME’s and charges a fair price that you can afford then Peter is your man!

They are very professional, polite and knowledgeable. They have also been extremely helpful during Covid as well. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.

Thanks to Pete and Mark for the extremely prompt and efficient service – my tax returns have never been filed in such a timely manner!! 

Excellent, comprehensive covering emails explaining in layman’s terms all the relevant information.

Very friendly, helpful and explains it all very well. Would highly recommend.

I tell you what I like about Mark… I’ve never once had to chase him up to do anything.

He just reliably gets things done every month. I’ve never needed to worry about it.

Peter is AMAZING, all round top guy! Hes professional but breaks things down so they are understandable to us who aren’t so accountancy savvy! 

During Covid, he has been the lifeline for so many companies and his email updates not only are useful but make you laugh, I couldn’t recommend a better accountant!

I have recently changed accountants and the difference already is remarkable. Peter saved my household thousands within an hour of working together…. He was also happy to review and advise on an unrelated matter (which was continuing to give me headaches) at short notice. Thanks Peter!

Peter has been first class with his advice and service.

He’s very honest, professional and explains things clearly. Thanks Peter!

Peter and his team are very professional and made accounting easy for me. They have been and still are a huge help during those hard COVID times.

I have been working with Peter for years and I was always very happy with his work. But he and his team have been my ‘rock’ during the Covid-19 crisis. He provided regular updates, great advice and accounting in plain English, which was exactly what I needed to get through this. Highly recommended!

Fantastic service as always from Peter and the team at Blue Penguin…above and beyond in regards to client service and the information provided.

Peter was great to work with for our recent end of year accounts. He provided an excellent prompt and friendly service for our small business.

Peter is responsive and approachable and speaks plain English! Nothing is too much trouble for him and his team.

What’s more he gives me confidence that he has an ethical approach and always acts in my best interests. I recommend him without hesitation.

My financial therapist! Blue Penguin adopts an absolutley brilliantly refreshing approach to accountancy.

Blue Penguin have been our accountants since day one and have made everything easier, faster and more understandable for our team. 

They have gone above and beyond when we needed emergency work done quickly and at awkward times. We wholeheartedly recommend them to any small business.

…basically Peter came and sorted everything out and turned me back into a sane person!!

I was extremely impressed with Peter. He was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, explaining tax in a clear and understandable way. I would highly recommend the Blue Penguin!
