A & J Mearza

We moved to Lewis Ballard last year and have found them great to work with. Neil met us in London initially and then introduced us to our account manager Claire Nicholson who I have found so helpful and responsive to our needs (we moved from a partnership to limited company). I always ask daft questions and she never seems to mind answering them!

Thank you for all your support so far!

Colin McCubbin

I have been with Lewis Ballard for a long time now, when Malcolm was there, and seen them grow over the years. I expected a loss of that close support that I always had—but quite the reverse. There is even MORE “hands on” close support—and in many areas I did not expect an accountant to help with.

Always accurate, always prompt, always efficient. A delight to deal with, at every level.

Even in the horrid event of dealings with an IR investigation, they guided me through it all, and really made it so much less of a task than I had feared.

No job too big, no task too little.

Above all, you work with real people who want to make a difference in the real world.

Colin McCubbin, BDS MFGDP


I have been asked and am extremely pleased to provide a testimonial for Lewis Ballard who have managed my accounts for more than 20 years.

From the outset, I have been able to trust Lewis Ballard implicitly with the organisation of the financial side of my job as a dentist. This has enabled me to concentrate wholly on the development of my career. The advice and financial care that I have received has always been very professional, prompt and accurate.

In the time that my own working career has progressed from single handed practitioner with interests in research to a large specialist dental practice on two sites, Lewis Ballard have been on hand to reassure, facilitate and make introductions and connections to the right people who are able to make decisions. This has been the key to development of our business and it has always been reassuring that Lewis Ballard have delivered.

At the same time, Lewis Ballard has expended and grown but he has been able to attract excellent staff to support the team. As a practice, we appreciate the effort, knowledge and skill of everyone at Lewis Ballard.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Lewis Ballard to anyone requiring the financial help needed to organise and run a modern day business.

Dr NCA Claydon


When I purchased my own business in 2007 after many years of senior management in large organisations one of my biggest concerns was the financial management and control of the business. I felt confident in the day to day financial management but the lack of strategic and statutory input provided by my previous accountants was a concern.

More than 7 years later, all as a client of Lewis Ballard having been introduced by my manager at Lloyds TSB, I am delighted to say that these concerns were and remain wholly unfounded!

Lewis Ballard provide an approachable and business focused sounding board happy to meet or be available to telephone consultation outside office hours and has offered sound advice and opinions on a variety of matters from director’s remuneration and taxation to support on a recent business acquisition.

Sian Lloyd and Sharon Werett provide on-going support to the business with year end accounts and monthly payroll management both of which are constantly hassle free – salaries are paid on time – every time and our accounts are posted at Companies House within three months of our year end.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Lewis Ballard and would be happy for any prospective clients to contact me to discuss further.

I was introduced to Lewis Ballard in 1997 and have not looked back since. They took over my accounts that year and have sorted out a few problems with ‘our friends’ the Inland Revenue, which had arisen due to the actions of a previous accountant.

Over the years they have helped out with all aspects of business advice, not just producing end of year accounts, as and when I get paperwork to the office. This includes transferring banks when I purchased new premises to double the size of my practice.

All members of staff at Lewis Ballard are very helpful and if they are unable to help themselves they will organise for somebody else who can ring you back to clarify any query no matter how insignificant it may or may not be!

You feel like you are talking to friends who are happy to help, not just paid to help you, it does make a difference. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Lewis Ballard.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Lewis Ballard for all that you have done for me since becoming a client. All your advice and support over the hard times I’ve faced through the last couple of years has been much appreciated.

I’m really very grateful and I couldnt have asked for a better team of people to help me.

The saying “Don’t cry that it didn’t happen.. but smile that it did..” holds true and I thank you from the bottom of my heart..


I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Neil and everyone at Lewis Ballard for helping my husband achieve the work life balance we have dreamt of. If it wasn’t for the advice, guidance and thought provoking challenges we would not have taken the calculated risks and got to where we are today. They are always there to talk too no matter how small or big the query.

Many thanks

Gary and Lisa
