Rowbotham & Company LLP is dishonest, provides poor tax/financial advice and their billing practices are completely opaque.
For example, I received a bill from them that listed a line item with a charge next to it with absolutely no explanation as to what the charge was for.
When asked for more clarification, it became clear that I had been billed $300 for a 15 min phone call.
Ridiculous! They have set up their billing structure similar to a law firm (which they are not) so if you want to spend a bunch of wasted time questioning their inept staff on what each line item is I would not do business with them.
Brian Rowbotham (owner) is basically a used car salesman in that he will promise you everything and reference past experiences of success with other clients but in the end will do nothing on your account.
If you are considering him for international tax advice do not waste your time.
He knows nothing of international tax laws/regulations despite what he will tell you.
In addition, he has hired a young inept team beneath him which only compounds the problem.
Seriously, there isn’t one knowledgable person (Peter, Amy, Cindy, Charlene) working there.
Just to confirm this fact, I asked three different clients of Rowbotham and everyone of them said the same exact thing. Nothing but problems and inept service!
If you want to lose $30k and waste months of valuable time then this is the company for you!
My next post is on the Better Business Bureau website along side a formal complaint.
