Principal Services

Audit and accountancy
For many companies and regulated businesses, an audit is, of course, a statutory requirement. At Haines Watts, we believe that tangible benefits can be gained from the annual audit over and above simply meeting the statutory requirement.

As part of the audit process we will seek to assist our clients by identifying any areas of weakness in systems and controls and providing constructive and pragmatic advice on key areas which will contribute to the more efficient running of the business.

Our approach to the audit process is to ensure a well planned, co-ordinated and communicated project which minimises surprises. A key step is to ensure the scope of our work is agreed and explained in advance and that all relevant issues are discussed as they arise.

Corporate and personal taxation
There are two key facets of taxation facing entrepreneurs and their businesses in the modern commercial environment – compliance and planning. At Haines Watts we adopt a pro-active and commercial approach to both.

Tax planning is about selecting the most effective route to achieve both business and personal objectives. Our skill lies in working with our clients to put together a “life plan” in order to achieve these objectives.

Business planning and consultancy
We work closely with our clients, providing them with structured, proactive input and a broad range of specialist services and access to sources of information that will ensure they have all the support to aid them in the successful development of their business.

Corporate finance
Our corporate finance specialists aim to provide clients with objective, well informed and useful advice to help them achieve their goals. Our specialists have excellent contacts with a wide range of investors, including private equity houses and lending institutions. We advise on the feasibility of raising finance, on designing the best structures and on selecting suitable sources of finance for businesses, as well as help and advice with acquisitions and disposals.

Financial services
We offer investment, risk and pension planning and also life assurance and health insurance through Tilney Bestinvest – one of the UK’s leading private client investment advisers, based in our Leeds office

Not for profit
The not for profit sector has unique characteristics which require specialist skills and we are confident in our ability to explore every avenue in order to ensure compliance, and also advise on other areas such as effective utilisation of surplus funds.

Following the upgrading of our outsourcing service we can help clients stay focussed on core business activities by supporting back office activities through the provision of a dedicated team of accountants. We can now also provide clients with the facility to update their accounts from multiple locations online and simultaneously in real time via our cloud based accounting solutions.

Payroll services
We have the resources and systems in place and are providing cost effective payroll services to a range of services across the region including fixed fee package for preparation of payroll, year end returns including on line filing, payroll cost analysis and advice on all payroll related issues.

We are licensed to supply and develop financial software and provide training for your accounting and payroll function, helping remove cumbersome paperwork from clients’ day to day tasks.

Our VAT specialists have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with assessments, appeals, situations and problems with Customs and Excise, VAT claims, partial exemptions, property transactions, international issues and special schemes.
