We recently asked Brett Smith from BAS Associates to take over our personal tax requirements and the service and guidance to date has been fantastic. They are proactive, responsive and always informative giving you all the options. This is great when you consider how confusing HMRC guidance can be at the best of times, so BAS make things simple. They will continue to do this work for us and we could not recommend them more. If you have complex tax to deal with every year, then choose Brett and the team at BAS Associates.


We are a small private limited company which is owned by the residents of a Grade II Listed Building in the New Forest, which has been converted into flats. The Company exists purely to manage the running of the building – dealing with insurance, routine maintenance, larger repairs, utility bills for communal areas, etc. Whilst our financial affairs are fairly straightforward, we are still required to file annual accounts at Companies House in the approved format – for which we need professional assistance.

For many years we used an accountancy firm in Dorset, but their charges have recently escalated – causing us to look elsewhere. As from this year, we have placed our business with BAS Associates, and Brett Smith has provided a very efficient service at an appreciably lower cost than the previous accountants.


Needed local company to organise my tax return, found BAS online and have had excellent service from Brett Smith from the first e mail to the submission of the tax return, very easy to deal with and talk to. Would highly recommend their services.


Hi Dawn – and the whole team, Thanks very much for all this. Beautiful work and explanation as usual.

Thanks again for all your hard work…  hope you’re all well and that we can return to some sort of normality soon.

Take care, Charlotte


Thanks for your help – it’s good to know my tax affairs are being dealt with so efficiently. It was a huge shock to hear Chris was giving up accountancy – I had been using H& Co since the early 1980’s. Change is never easy but the transition from H&Co to BAS seems to have gone very smoothly.

Dear Team, from the head  down your business has grown and grown: it is lovely to put faces to names, and at ACS I want you to know I have never doubted it would. I do not hesitate to recommend you to all and sundry, since you have never let me down, and always been there for me with kindness and advice. Very cheesy but true. Thank you all very much indeed. Keep Truckin’ !  Penny

You are the BEST, you help me and my silly questions, sometimes repetitive questions. You are always on hand and if you are not available, you have a good team to help. J Stewart
