Home Business Advice and Support Financial Administration Statutory Accounts and Taxation Contact


William is my ex-colleague before he moved to concentrate on his own business. Recently, after he left the institution where I remain employed, William has helped me with my tax return for 2015/2016 which was a bit too much for me to deal with because of some situational complications. As a result of William's professional help, I have successfully got the refund from the HMRC. I have been deeply impressed by William's professional and efficient service. I have asked William to help with my 2016/2017. And, I will recommend his service to my family and friends in future.

William makes understanding the tax requirements simple with pragmatic and effective advice. His customer service is excellent, with a fast turn-around on documents and queries. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

When RTI & Pension requirements were introduced it became evident that we needed to engage with an external professional to deliver these additional challenges. Bill has supported the Returning Officer at Southampton for many years undertaking various senior roles during the hours of poll and at the count so he fully understands the processes and the implications for staff being paid in a timely fashion after the event. Handing over the payroll enabled us to do just that and Bill is very knowledgeable and supportive throughout the process, providing training to the core team about the implications of the choices in the HMRC start-up form to engaging with individual employees with various queries. Since working with Bill our payroll requirements have been significantly easier (to manage).

I am very pleased with the help that William has given me. He has helped me get a much better grip on my business finances and enabled me to understand the financial processes which drive my business and contribute towards its success. I am growing in confidence and better equipped to run the business as a result of his support. I would be happy to recommend him to other business users.

In his role as Exchequer Services Manager William had dealings with services right across the council and with staff at all levels as well as elected members. This involved not only reacting to questions and queries but also in a proactive way to promote new processes and procedures that would improve service delivery or provide efficiencies. His strengths are his customer focus, valuing and managing staff, problem solving, initiative and innovation, interpersonal skills, communication and team working, taking responsibility and ownership, meeting deadlines and budget management. I have no hesitation in recommending William to you.

The payroll service we receive from Bilbeck Business SErvices Ltd has been exemplary since the start of our business in 2010.

'The service I have received from William and Bilbeck Business Services Ltd has been outstanding. Setting up my own business was a daunting task, however William has taken me though every stage step by step. At every point I have known what is going on, more importantly however I have known the legal responsibilities for my company.

Throughout this process William has been on hand to explain any queries I have, always with a quick response. This was (and still is) incredibly useful. With Bilbeck Business Service I have always felt that I am more than just another customer, and that they want my business to succeed as much as I do. The level of personal service is exceptional.

William has enabled me to focus on providing the services I sell rather than having to focus upon accounts. I cannot recommend Bilbeck Business Service and William enough.
