Working together

When you’re growing your business we know you need much more than just generic accounting services advice. You need your accountants to have specialist knowledge and a firm understanding of the industry in which you operate.

Our holistic approach means our teams work closely together to deliver tailored financial management information that’s relevant to both your industry and specific business needs, whatever stage of the growth journey you’re on.

We’re much more than annual number crunchers. We’ll work closely with you to monitor costs, identify business trends and improve efficiency. We’re proud that many of our SME clients see us as business partners and not just their accountants.

When you run a small business the last thing you need is the expense and inconvenience of falling foul of compliance. Our accounting, administration and payroll support ensures all your legal responsibilities are met, including your year-end and statutory accounts.

Client story: Supporting a high growth business 

PRB Systems (UK)

Background: PRB Systems (UK) provides advanced rendering systems for the modern home. This family-owned business has grown 40% over the past year alone, testament to their high-quality service and product. Here Ryan Hill, Managing Director at PRB Systems, speaks about his experience working with Kate Edginton, Senior Manager in the Business Solutions team at Hazlewoods.

How we helped: “We were growing at a pace that exceeded the knowledge of our previous accountant, and we required expert advice during this demanding phase of growth.

Hazlewoods offered me professional, expert advice with everything from book-keeping, year-end compliance, VAT returns, but also Kate was brilliant at actually walking me through how to use Xero more efficiently to process purchase orders and invoices, and simplifying excel so that I can spend more time focusing on the business itself.

Additionally, Hazlewoods advised on how best to set up an employee share scheme that was most suitable to our company structure.

Client story: Peace of mind for a growing franchise business

Turner Swim

Background: Turner Swim are a provider of adult learn to swim lessons in first class hotel swimming pools and open water locations across London, Manchester and Glasgow. Founder Andrew Turner explains how Hazlewoods helped his growing business.

How we helped: “Before joining Hazlewoods a huge amount of my time and energy was spent in keeping our accounts up to date. At Hazlewoods they really understand our business model and what is and isn’t needed from an accounts view point.  I can rest knowing that I won’t suddenly get an urgent request to do something last minute, as there is routine pattern to the Hazelwoods methodology. 

The biggest change is the piece of mind that I get from knowing Hazlewoods are keeping our accounts in good working order.

Working with Hazlewoods has enabled us to take our business to the next level because their professional service has given me more time to focus on other areas of the business.

What does the future hold for Turner Swim?

“We are currently looking to expand through offering franchise opportunities at Turner Swim, so others can run their own Turner Swim business, teaching one-to-one adult swimming lessons in hotel locations.”
