Discover our range of services specifically tailored for your start-up and micro businesses here, from bookkeeping, cloud accounting, payroll support, management accounts and more.

Understanding you

Your business accounts should enable you to see how your business is performing and where you can make changes for sustained success. As an entrepreneur who has launched their own business, you will want to make sure you are doing everything to ensure its success.

We want to support your creativity and work with you to drive your business forward; whether that is for growth, to make a reasonable living, or with the aim of selling in the future.

Business growth is not always the top of everyone’s agenda. We recognise that there are many sole traders and small businesses looking to manage their business, make small changes to improve performance and continue business as usual. 

Cloud Accountancy

We offer the latest in cloud accounting and bookkeeping giving you real time access to custom packages at affordable prices.


Helping you achieve your goals

Business plans are a great way of formally putting down your ideas and goals for the business moving forward and are often used as evidence for potential investors when businesses are looking to raise finance for development. Producing a concise business plan can often be a daunting task and seeking advice can help. Selecting the right business structure early on is important in order to:

  • mitigate tax;
  • optimise extraction of profits;
  • provide access to finance; and
  • reduce administration.




Let our expert Business Solutions team guide you on the right path. 

Making a difference

Monitoring business performance has developed in recent years, to the extent that our IT systems can now provide real-time data on your business and day-to-day operations. This is just one of many benefits of cloud accounting.

Business decisions can be made on up to date information in order to understand your cash requirements, optimise pricing, reduce risk in the business, and identify opportunities for efficiencies and cost savings.

Our advisers can work with you to understand your business, help you to select the most appropriate metrics that you should be monitoring, and support you in making the right decisions to drive your business forward.

Testimonial from Keiran Smith

"Hazlewoods has provided us with an accountancy outsourcing service for the past 7 years. Over this time they have delivered an exemplary service and have consistently exceeded my expectations. For an organisation of our size and maturity, the Hazlewoods Outsourcing Service represents excellent value for money."

Testimonial from Ryan Hill, MD PRB Systems (UK)

"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."

"I can't speak highly enough of the Business Solutions team at Hazlewoods, they are very responsive with their ongoing support as we continue to understand the benefit of transitioning to Xero."
