An award-winning firm of accountants and strategic advisors supporting aspirational business owners in the North East, who lead not follow.

Running a business is rewarding, but it's demanding too. You need an advisor who can support your ambitious, entrepreneurial spirit. An advisor who can provide commercial advice that cuts through the jargon and adds tangible value.

Wherever you are on your journey, we can provide solutions to your business challenges, drive performance, and ignite business growth.

A responsive service with proactive communication is just the start. We’ll help you maximise tax incentives and reliefs, embrace cutting-edge cloud technology with our outsourced services, strengthen your VAT position, and support you to access the finance and funding you need to grow.

Don’t let day-to-day accounting and tax issues get in the way of your determination and hard work. Our support will ensure you remain fully focused on the aspects of your business that drive sales, service, and profitability.

Whether it's strategic issues like sustainable growth and continuity planning, or complex legislative changes, we deal with your financial issues in clear terms that you can easily understand. Real people providing real-world advice – that’s who we are.

    We have been using HW for many years for our audit and external accounting services. They have always been extremely professional, and acted with complete confidentiality and integrity. Their service is reliable and it is extremely rare that we have had a change in our main point of contact - helping us to have the confidence that they understand the way we operate and the needs of our business. We would have no hesitation in recommending Haines Watts to other business.
