At Haines Watts Manchester we build REAL relationships with business people that enable us to help them overcome their challenges. Let our advisors do the same for you!

We think we should be more than just your accountant, and our team values define our two-way relationship with our clients:

R – responsive – meeting needs quickly and positively
E – empathetic – understanding and caring
A – agile – able to evolve and change
L – leaders – motivating and challenging

It’s about knowing where you want to get to (business and personal goals), how we can help you and how fast you want to get there (the strategy).

Along the way we will provide the accountancy services you’d expect, but you will also have access to the wide range of advisory services that a top 15 firm can provide – but provided in a plain English, personal, user friendly way.

If you are looking to expand overseas we can link you with our international alliance, providing quality advice in over 100 countries, or if you are based overseas and looking to invest into the UK we act for a number of UK subsidiaries for larger international groups, providing a value alternative to the Big 4 in this area.

We look after a broad range of clients providing day-to-day bookkeeping through to complex tax planning. We have particular expertise in sectors such as Family Business, Manufacturing, Creative and Digital, Property, Healthcare and Professional Services (solicitors and architects) and provide specialist services such as FCA, SRA and ATOL reporting.

Manchester and the Northern regions have been an area of growth and we are proud have been part of that and to continue to support the local business community on that journey.

Julie Pomfret has been wonderful and supported us throughout with regular catch ups and meetings to discuss business performance, personal tax planning and advice on profit extraction to name just a few services. Using Xero, we're able to keep track of the numbers but draw on the expertise of Rob Pooley w... Read more

    Much like other reviewers, we have been using Haines Watts for over 25 years. We are aware that some people prefer not to deal with larger companies for their accountancy services, but for the whole time we have been served admirably, and solely, by Julie and Caroline. To us it seems that Haines Watts runs like a small, almost family style business. We can honestly state that whenever we have contacted them either by phone or email the matter has been dealt with within a very short time frame. W... Read more

    I have had my accounts prepared for a number of years with Haines Watts Manchester and have had an exceptional level of service from Rob, Richard and David. Rob has always been on hand to help with any Xero queries and providing advisory services on how to get the best from Xero and I can always contact David in regards to tax advice and profit extraction. I couldn’t recommend them enough for their professionalism and expertise, as they provide essential accountancy services to businesses!

    Rob Pooley was my main contact at HWCA when I set up a new business in September 2020. New to Xero, Rob guided me through implementation and training as well as overseeing monthly management accounts to ensure the business started on a sure footing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this firm to any business, large or small.
