Client testimonials

James and his team at HWB have been instrumental in our financial review and rapid improvements made over the past year. This service has been exceptional value for money and has enabled us to reduce waste and increase expenditure in other essential areas while other schools are having to cut costs across the board. I have no hesitation in recommending HWB for financial consultancy support.


HWB have been a huge help to our business since we have worked with them. They are a really friendly and professional team and always quick to respond. They really take the stress out of our accounting needs.

We have found the HWB team to be very professional, knowledgeable and approachable. They did an excellent job of keeping us informed as the audit progressed and agreed with us some amendments to our processes. They are always at the end of the phone and send out a Bi-Annual Charity Newsletter and run an Annual Seminar to keep us updated on the latest changes in the sector.


We moved our audit and tax work to HWB 4 years ago and since then their support of us has been invaluable and their team are brilliant to work with. Michaela has many years of experience of the sector and I and the trustees get to share this in our meeting and phone calls. They are responsive, proactive and supportive and we value the relationship we have built up.

Oakhaven Hospice

The company and the family have been clients of the firm for over 30 years and we really appreciate the personal service we get from Arthur Bell and his team. They are always available and approachable. Between them they always deal directly with my problems. They are often the first professional we turn to when we are looking at something new.

We value Andy and HWB’s advice as our advisers and accountants. They prepare our accounts, company and personal tax returns and the service is always good and timely. We feel we can pick up the phone to them whenever we need to and discuss our business matters.

We have been with HWB for over 10 years and have appreciated their advice and support through the growth of my company to its eventual sale. Geoff and Gary have been a huge addition to our team and I cannot stress enough how pleased I was with the support provided during the sale process.

We needed a system that used foreign currencies and Julie Boyton worked closely with us to determine our needs and match the product. The support pre, during and post installation has been a hassle-free migration that has saved us money.

We recently moved our audit, tax and company secretarial work to HWB and the team are great to work with.
