Accountants Peterborough

Supporting business owners

Get in Touch

Our Haines Watts team of business advisors and accountants provide high quality financial advice to businesses and high net worth individuals in and around Peterborough and the South East Midlands region.

What makes us different?

It’s not just about getting the work ‘done’ – we highly value collaboration and always aim to build strong, long-lasting working relationships with our clients. We enjoy working with people who own and manage businesses, and aim to provide advice and support in a thought-provoking, ‘no nonsense’ manner.

Investing significantly, particularly at the beginning of any new relationship to achieve clarity and understanding, is important to us. This enables our team to understand 3 main things; the Destination you or your business are aiming to reach, the Speed at which you aim to get there, and finally, how we can help ‘de-risk’ the journey with Certainty.

More than just accountants

We strive to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for both compliance and advisory services, through a solution driven approach for any personal or business-related matter. Of course, we provide the more ‘traditional’ range of accountancy and tax services such as audit and accounts, but we also offer a more diverse range of specialist services including property and people services to cater for our client’s ever-changing needs and requirements. Being part of a national brand means we have the strength of being a top 13 firm, with local influence and knowledge, and can support our clients on any issues or opportunities that may arise.

Why Haines Watts?

We understand running a business in today’s climate’s more challenging than ever before. Having recently surveyed 500 business owners with turnovers of between £1m and £50m, a workforce of between 10 and 249 employees and across all UK regions and major industry sectors, it was clear their mental health, personal finances and working lives overlapped and in doing so, they struggled to separate their business from their personal lives. To understand how others like yourself are feeling about their business, read the full study here. As business owners ourselves, we understand personally where they’re coming from. This is why we ensure your business runs smoothly, without the added stress and hassle of ‘the Tax Man’.


We’re firm believers in talking to people about things they need to know, in a way they understand and at a time that’s relevant. That’s why, as a client, you’ll have a Key Client Manager who’s an expert in their field, and will be available to you for any queries.


Our team make it their business to understand what you want from yours. Our aim’s to ensure you receive the advice you need, when you need it, or often before you even knew you did.


We welcome the opportunity to work alongside you, improving or perfecting your processes and making sure you’re able to focus on what’s important – your business.


We’re Cambridgeshire people and we’re committed to the development and growth of our local business community.

Successful businesses share their experiences


Our services

We’re far more than just accountants, our accounts and business advisory offering encompasses the following services;

Accounts & outsourcing

Whether it’s helping prepare year-end accounts or auditing the financial records, we’ll help you gain a far better understanding of your business. Therefore, enabling you to make better informed business and personal decisions. With the looming introduction of ‘Making Tax Digital, our accounts & outsourcing team has the ‘know-how’ to ensure you’re up to date and in line with upcoming legislation, and even provide you with the resources in partnership with Xero, to facilitate this.

Audit & assurance

All too often, audit can be a scary word for many business owners. However, in reality, it’s as much about the people behind the numbers as the numbers themselves. Every business faces its own challenges, and it’s these we’re keen to understand, as well as what you hope to achieve, in order to assist you along your journey. We’re experts in our field, and our audit & assurance service is designed with collaboration in mind.

Company secretarial services

We appreciate company secretarial matters aren’t likely to be at the forefront of all business owner’s minds. However, our team’s here to help you reach those all-important milestones and at the same time, make sure you’re aware of any legal obligations and disclosure requirements.

Corporate finance

Acquiring and disposing of a business can often be a challenging decision – where to look, how to find the capital for such a large investment, or even knowing how much your legacy’s worth. With extensive experience in the field, our corporate finance team can advise on any matter relating to your business, from valuing your assets to acquiring a new business for growth or securing funding to finance an acquisition or expansion. We’re well equipped to ensure you’re well prepared.

Creative services

The challenge of ‘marketing’ your brand to the world can be a daunting one. Advertising and promoting your services in a creative and persuasive manner can be challenging for many. Our creative services team can support you on all aspects of the creative process, and provide advice, concepts and solutions to your branding and marketing needs.

People services

Whether you have an HR query, you’re struggling to complete your monthly payroll on time, or need a new team member to fill a vacant role, we can help! Our people services function, comprised of Human Resources, Payroll and Talent & Resourcing can support on any ‘people’ related matters or opportunities that may arise.

Personal and corporate tax

Tax planning’s a key aspect of the support we provide to our clients. With dedicated corporate and personal tax teams on hand, we’re able to provide expert tax advice and answer all your tax related queries.

Property services

In any business, property can be a demanding, yet essential factor in the smooth running of your operation. From finding the right premises, to claiming back Capital Allowances you weren’t aware you were entitled to, or negotiating on your behalf, our in-house team of Chartered Surveyors and professionals can help maximise the value of your property assets, whilst at the same time, minimising your occupational costs.

R&D tax relief

For companies who are investing in the development or creation of new products, processes and services, R&D tax relief can provide an important source of funding through cash reimbursement or tax deduction. With a former HMRC tax inspector, heading up our team of highly experienced R&D tax specialists, we can explore all possible avenues in order to secure tax relief you could be due.

Service charge

Unlike any other aspect of accounting, service chargedoesn’t focus specifically on profit or tax efficiencies, but instead purely dedicated to ensuring procedures are robust, straightforward, efficient and fair. Our award-winning team provides bespoke services for our clients, including Landlords, Housing Associations, Agents and Residents’ Management Companies.


We recognise VAT can be an extremely complex area and that’s why we have a dedicated team to advise and help clients meet their VAT obligations, whilst maximising opportunities to minimise costs.

Wealth planning

We know it’s not just about the now, it’s also about preparing for the future and securing financial comfort for both you and your family in the years to come. We collaborate with Tilney – award winning Financial Advisors, to provide you with guidance on wealth planning and how to prepare for any eventualities. Proof of Tilney’s capability was highlighted this year in their winning of ‘Wealth Manager of the Year’ in the recent Investment and Wealth Management Awards sponsored by the Financial Times.
