Hawsons is a leading independent accounting practice, employing more than 100 people in our offices in Sheffield, Doncaster and Northampton
We help small and growing sole traders, partnerships, and limited companies with all aspects of setting up and running a business. We have a proven track record in helping small businesses get off the ground and grow. Our friendly and experienced staff are available at all times to answer your queries and give you advice on matters such as help with setting up a company, raising finance, tax planning and tax efficient profit extraction, VAT, year-end accounts and much more.
We work with a large number of family businesses and understand the sometimes conflicting dynamics that can impact both the family and the business. We also work closely with the International Centre for Families in Business, and together with the Centre, have developed a unique programme of training in family business dynamics for our partners.
We have a long established reputation for integrity and professional competence of which we are proud and committed to maintain. Our team of audit experts are fully trained on the latest developments in Auditing Standards, in this increasingly specialised area. We use the latest technologies along with a review of your business, systems and controls so we focus on key audit risk areas and ensure a cost-effective audit.
Whether you are investing overseas or are an overseas business investing in the UK, we have a range of services designed to meet your needs. We are also members of HLB International, a fast-growing, dynamic network of independent accounting firms and business advisers. HLBI is a mid-tier international accounting network, servicing clients through its member firms in over 100 countries.
We’re different because we know you’re different. We provide a broad range of personal tax services, tax planning advice and financial services tailored to your individual needs. From self-assessment tax return preparation and submission, to advice on working overseas, remuneration strategies and capital gains tax, inheritance tax, protection and pension planning, our specialists understand your circumstances and goals and tailor their advice to your needs.
“We’re proud of our extensive history and the success we’ve achieved since we were founded in Sheffield 160 years ago. Despite our company’s growth and expansion into other areas across the UK, we’ve stayed true to our philosophy that no matter what size or sector, every business we work with will always receive the same high standard of advice and service from our team.” – Martyn Weatherall, Hawsons’ Senior Partner
