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

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.
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.
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!
