The measure of a company isn’t what we say about ourselves, but what our clients say about us.


Over the past 10 years Hughes Waddell have helped and supported our growing business with friendly, sound advice. The partners and staff always respond very promptly to requests for advice or help but there is never the fear that a timesheet may be ticking away in the background. We have learnt so much from them about how to optimise our business and personal finances. Professionally prepared accounts are a given; it is the feeling that you have a knowledgeable friend on your side that makes the difference.

We have been clients with Hughes Waddell since starting our business in July 2012. Their advice in all realms of accounting, has been extremely valuable, they not only make my business life so much easier but also make the process simple and hassle free; explaining everything in detail; they give me plenty of notice of when accounts are due and are always on the end of the phone, friendly and supportive when needed, going above and beyond. Rachel is extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and breaks information down clearly for the non-financially minded to understand whilst offering me valuable accountancy support consistently throughout the year thus taking the stress factor out of my accounting needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rachel and her team.

Hughes Waddell was recommended to us by one of their clients in 1996 when I first established my Company. They helped us immensely in the early years, holding our hands through the mire of taxation and company regulations and paperwork. It was like having a friendly family looking out for you, guiding you and making sure that you were legal and above aboard in all your operations ie. Company regulators, tax man and most importantly with your employees. Although we have seen some of the players at HW retire over the years, the high level of service has been maintained. We are pleased to have called them our “Financial Partners” for the last 22 years and pleased to recommend them to others – you are definitely in safe hands!
