It was extremely convenient having the conveyancing, and the calculation of capital gains tax by the tax expert, Joanne Beale, done in one place. Everything proceeded smoothly and efficiently in a short space of time.

We would highly recommend Joanne Beale at Girlings. She gave us excellent advice and guided us through the process of paying our Capital Gains Tax. The service was very professional, nothing was to much trouble and Joanne was always on hand with any advice that we needed.

I wanted to thank you for the excellent service you provided in completing my Capital Gains Tax in respect of my recent property sale. The whole process was dealt with professionally and very efficiently, you made it all so easy. You were always available to ask any questions, and always happy to help.
Many thanks once again for all your help. It is a great comfort to know that each year you take away the stress of sorting out my accounts and personal tax.

I have known Joanne in a professional capacity for over 20 years. I have always found her to be thoroughly professional, reliable and trustworthy. It is reassuring to know that when a problem arises she will go out of her way to resolve this.

Joanne has been a tower of strength at a difficult time. My father died last year and had communicated very little regarding his financial affairs. The complexities proved more challenging than Joanne had anticipated, when we first had a face to face meeting in the Canterbury office. Joanneā€™s manner is calm and reassuring and I had complete confidence in her. All matters were quickly attended to and dealt with expeditiously. I am very grateful to Joanne for her professional services and can strongly recommend her to future prospective clients.
