About Us

Our practice was founded in 1919 by Marcus Hazlewood. Working from offices in Cheltenham he developed a thriving business. 

Today, the firm is one of the UK’s Top 30 independent Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, and is renowned for real specialism in our chosen fields. With over 300 staff in two offices across Gloucestershire, we are proud to be a very strong regional practice with both a national and international reach. Many of our specialists have a UK wide reputation. We enjoy what we do, and are very straightforward to deal with.

We are delighted to have won the 2017 Best Tax Practice in a Regional Firm in the Tolley’s Taxation Awards, an award we were finalists for in 2015 and 2016. We are also proud winners of the British Accountancy Awards 2017 Top Tax Team of the Year.

Our values

In 2017, we asked our staff to take part in affirming Hazlewoods values. This started with a survey, asking for values and what they mean to individuals and for the business. During a session held with eight willing volunteers, the 64 responses received were discussed and deliberated to produce five core values. 


Being trustworthy, loyal, fair and sincere at all times.

Honesty and integrity run through the core of what everyone does in the firm for each other, clients and all those we have contact with.


Supporting both clients and staff in achieving their goals and potential.

Actively listen and be respectful, helpful and promote positive team work.


Experts in our field providing the very best quality of work.

Continually investing and developing our professional knowledge and expertise.
