Our Peterborough practice is owned and managed by its directors, so you’ll be dealing with accountants who really understand what it means to build and own a business locally. As part of the East region of Haines Watts’ offices we also benefit from access to our regional specialist service line teams in areas such as Audit, Business Consultancy, HR, and tax.
The role of a modern accountancy practice is changing at a rapid pace. Gone are the days when an accountant would simply produce a set of annual financial statements and a tax return for each client (compliance services). At Haines Watts Peterborough, we have evolved so we are able to provide compliance services at a competitive cost but then we can go further to help you achieve your business and personal wider ambitions with greater speed and certainty.
The resident directors at the Peterborough office have first-hand experience of running business ventures and work closely with clients to add significant value to their businesses beyond a set of accounts. This is mainly driven by conversations surrounding growth, talent, efficiencies and exit/succession planning.

The regional tax team for Haines Watts Peterborough covers four Haines Watts offices in the region including Kettering, Luton and Northampton and has been set up to deal with all the tax needs of owner-managed and family-run businesses.
The aim of the team is two-fold: firstly to protect clients from unwanted HMRC attention by ensuring the timely and accurate completion of all tax obligations; and secondly to assist their clients in both creating and protecting their wealth by taking advantage of all the legitimate tax reliefs. The team is headed up by Jennie Brown who looks after Private Client Tax matters and Nigel Syson who heads up the Corporate Tax arm.

Haines Watts opened my mind to looking at my business in a different way. Although successful I was at the stage where I was looking to shape my business better – I needed a little support. They gave me an informal framework for seeing how my business was performing and enabled me to talk to other owner managed businesses who have similar challenges.Rob Quinn, Purity Productions
Haines Watts has acted as a useful mirror to our business. We’ve looked at how we operate, our strengths, and how we perceive ourselves.
