  • I would like to thank Louise for her excellent work over the last 10 months during a HMRC investigation into my Crypto tax returns over the last 4 years. My personal situation was very complex using multiple exchanges and platforms and there were many thousands of transactions. Louise liaised with HMRC on my behalf and gave me great advice and was a steady professional hand throughout the process. In the end there was a positive outcome with her calculations being accepted and the case closed. Recommend her services to anyone dealing with Crypto reporting.

  • I would highly recommend Louise Lane and her team of crypto experts at Wright Vigar.  Louise has been a trusted advisor for 4 years delivering tax advice on nuanced crypto activity, tax return preparation and HMRC Voluntary Disclosures.  She is a recognised and respected figure in the crypto space, she has a breadth of tried and tested knowledge and a large network of connections. My crypto affairs are incredibly complex, Louise was able to offer high quality advice; coordinating and driving a team which included appropriate legal and technical associates from her contacts.

  • Louise is always available and attentive to all my accounting needs. Not only is her work impeccable, but she's always willing to take the time to explain procedures and options. She always goes above and beyond. A definite lifesaver. :)

  • Cryptocurrency transactions can be fiendishly complicated and difficult to track and report correctly, even with crypto tax reporting software, making the services of an accountant versed in crypto tax rules indispensable. Louise's knowledge in this regard, attention to detail and service generally has been excellent for the last several years of assisting me with my tax return.
