What Our Clients Say

Wylie & Bisset were appointed as internal auditors of North East Scotland College following a tender process undertaken on the merger of Aberdeen College with Banff and Buchan College. Our internal audit plan has covered a wide range of areas including governance, risk management, key systems and value for money reviews. The service covers the College as well as its subsidiary company. The approach taken by Wylie & Bisset LLP has allowed us to obtain maximum benefits from the internal audit service. Throughout the duration of the firm’s appointment, the Board and Senior Managers of the College have been impressed with the high level of senior involvement on the contract, both at the fieldwork stage and the presentation of reports to the Audit and Risk Committee. Audit plans and reports have been of a high standard. The College’s Audit & Risk Committee has commended the approach followed by the firm in terms of clarity, accessibility and relevance with all internal audit service performance targets having been met. The service provided by Graham Gillespie (Engagement Partner, formerly Audit Manager), Ross McLauchlan (Previous Engagement Partner), and Stephen Pringle (Audit Manager) has been of a notably high standard. Staff of Wylie & Bisset have demonstrated a breadth of experience of the public and private sectors in carrying out their duties. Wylie & Bisset know our business and contribute to our successful development.

Throughout our rapid growth period, Wylie & Bisset have been a great support to our company. The regular growth meetings I have with them have been invaluable. I have learned so much about business and I have used this advice to implement strategies into the day to day running of the company

It may say Accounting and Tax services on the door but really it is about people, you stay with the people that know you and your business, the people that you trust and rely on to get the best job done in a timely manner even when the client is not so timely. We moved to Wylie and Bisset to work with Shehzad Ashaq with whom we had worked with before. As well as being able to call on Shehzad’s expertise we also have been impressed with the great team of supporting experts that he can call on for those tricky VAT or international tax issues specific to our business. We are well pleased and can recommend both him and the firm

Andy Milne, Managing Director, Mims Pottery Group


The Practice have used WB Healthcare for many years and we have been fortunate enough to have had the expert help and support of all their personnel in looking after the accounts of the Practice. During the time I have been manager I have found WB Healthcare to be reliable, approachable, efficient and knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble for them whenever I ask for assistance. I feel that the personal relationship we have with our accountants is paramount and their professionalism is second to none and hope to have many more years working with them.

Avril Houston, Practice Manager


We’ve worked with Wylie & Bisset for over 10 years, and have benefited from their excellent professional services in the fields of strategy planning, financial management, audit and tax advice. Wylie & Bisset’s ability to provide a comprehensive range of financial and support services in tandem with the evolving needs of our business as it has grown over the years, has been key in this and we very much value what they bring to our business. In my experience, Wylie & Bisset provide excellent professional services that are underpinned by staff who are easy to deal with and proactive in trying to understand the needs and issues of our business.

Jim Boyle, Director, C-Plan


My business partner and I started Glasgow Whisky Limited in the autumn of 2007 and approached Wylie & Bisset to act as our accountants and auditors. Now, nearly ten years on, I am very happy to say that our relationship with Wylie & Bisset is even stronger and covers a diverse range of issues. From the outset Wylie & Bisset were able to give advice on structure and audit procedures and, as we have become more established, they are now able to offer an even wider range of services relating to tax and compliance amongst other things. Wylie & Bisset are sufficiently large to have a very complete range of specialist advisors and services to support almost every eventuality but are still of a size that one can access senior members of the practice which affords a very personal level of contact.

Graham Taylor, Managing Director, Glasgow Whisky

Wylie & Bisset recently supported me in the trade sale of my business. I found James and the team to have a real focus on trying to achieve the best possible deal for me and they worked exceptionally hard on my behalf. They took a very fair and transparent view on fees and their approach seemed very much to be focused on delivery first and foremost.

They have taken a proactive approach to our audit planning and have provided a first class service.

We moved our audit work to Wylie & Bisset some 5 years ago. I know that whatever query I have, I can call on the team at Wylie & Bisset regardless of the nature of my enquiry; whether it’s about tax, payroll or general accounting treatment it just seems like they are there for us. Our contact at Wylie & Bisset has often suggested courses of action that we hadn’t thought of and that have proved fruitful to us. Their knowledge of our business makes each audit smoother than the last. Ultimately, I can count on Wylie & Bisset they have become a part of our business... and that’s what counts!

During 2014, Pineview Housing Association engaged the services of Wylie & Bisset LLP for our internal audit requirements and agreed on a 3-year indicative audit plan. We have found the service provided by Wylie + Bisset LLP to be thorough, professional and respectful. The audit process has highlighted a number of areas of good practice by the Association but has also constructively criticised and highlighted area of work that need improvement by the Association. Working with an internal audit firm who is fearless in giving an honest appraisal is invaluable to the Association and allows the Association to continually improve and develop our business and services.

Joyce Orr, Director, Pineview Housing Association


We appointed Wylie & Bisset after competitive tender and interview of shortlisted bidders in March 2010. It was evident at interviews that Wylie & Bisset offer a significantly greater depth of service than that of other providers. Wylie & Bisset staff have proven easy to work with, have met the timetable agreed, have used specialist IT staff for that aspect of their audit, have presented clear, easy to follow reports and have offered constructive advice and guidance for any weaknesses identified. They were re-appointed in 2016 following a competitive re-tender exercise. I am in no doubt that we are receiving a much deeper service than that received from our previous provider and that we are receiving excellent value for money.

George Russell, Homes for Life


Wylie & Bisset have provided External Audit Services to Hebridean Housing Partnership (HHP) for the last 4 years. They are now in their second term of appointment with the Partnership. Wylie & Bisset have met and exceeded HHP’s Board and Management Team expectations since appointment. They have proved to be very professional, efficient and reliable. They have a responsive, knowledgeable team who understand the needs of their client. They have also been proactive in keeping HHP up to date with legislative changes and standards of reporting. They have a sound understanding of the housing sector.

Dena Macleod, Director of Resources, Hebridean Housing Partnership


I am in the process of establishing a new dental practice which is a new experience for me. WB Healthcare have been a massive assistance in ensuring that I am putting all of the parts of new business together in the right way. They produced a fist class business plan and were a key part of securing my funding package. James and his team have delivered real value and brought a clear understanding of my issues.

Muirhouse Housing Association are 2 years into a three year agreement with Wylie & Bisset to provide internal audit support. Wylie & Bisset, in that time, have provided a first class service, consistently within timescales and costs agreed. Their input has provided reassurance and transparency in areas where we perform as an exemplary organisation. Their constructive and robust process of audit has identified and supported the areas of change or improvement we needed to address. This has consistently been achieved in a professional and productive manner. Our business results and how we achieve those results thrive, as a result of the business partnership we enjoy together. I would not hesitate to recommend their services and we intend to continue our relationship with them.
