About us

You haven’t come to us to be lectured on audits or tax. You’re here so we can make things clear, help you plan and solve your problems. So that’s what we’ll do.

What sets us apart from other accountancy firms? Our people and our approach. We believe we’ll achieve more for you because our people are genuinely interested, thorough and personable. Our friendliness isn’t a façade. It’s our work ethic, why we gel as a team and how we build so many long-lasting client relationships.

Our approach is also based on exceptional knowledge. As a Top 30 firm in London with almost 40 partners, we have a vast number of specialists, who each have a comprehensive knowledge of their chosen sector. So whether you’re a not for profit organisation, a UK or international business or a private client, you’ll be supported by with people who have exactly the right expertise, experience and enthusiasm.

As a company based in London, much of our business comes from the capital and the South East. Yet we also have a global outlook. We co-founded MSI Global Alliance, specifically to make it easier for our clients to access trusted advisors worldwide. They’ll provide expert knowledge for their jurisdiction in areas such as law and other advisory services, and we can act as a single point of contact, to ensure the service is manageable and clear.

What often surprises new clients is how accessible we are at every level, including our Partners.

Perhaps it’s because so many of our Partners joined the firm as trainees and have worked their way up. They haven’t forgotten the support they had from the outset, the inclusive culture and the encouragement to nurture relationships with clients. It’s ingrained in all of us.

It’s also why we’ve been able to grow steadily and organically – people come to work with us and they stay.

It’s often the same for our clients too. For example, entrepreneurs first come to us with their ideas, which we help become a reality. Then together we watch their concept grow and succeed, all the way through to eventual sale and exit.

Our focus on specialising means you benefit from a more meaningful service. We don’t just pass on information and leave you to ponder what it means for you. We give you helpful advice gained from expert knowledge and real world (often first-hand) experience. And because we devote time to getting to know you, that advice will be directly relevant, timely and practical.

Management, leadership and governance

The firm implemented a new management and governance structure on 1 July 2022. The partners have elected a Leadership Board which comprises the Managing Partner, one elected partner with significant management responsibilities, and three elected partners without significant management responsibilities.

A cross-section of haysmacintyre people sat round a table to discuss and define our core values. It wasn’t just a fun way to pass the time; it was a serious exercise to discover what we shared and how it would influence our growth and goals. And most importantly, how we should work with you. We settled on four core values. Here’s what they mean for us and for you:


We are trustworthy and straightforward. Honest, objective and sincere, we comply with and uphold professional requirements and obligations.

We’re communicative and consultative, always sharing ideas and valuing contributions from our team members. We act in an inclusive manner and always trust one another.

We are confident in our expertise, delivery and knowledge. We have the freedom to perform and the independence to achieve our full potential.

We challenge the status quo and champion progress. We search out and embrace new ideas and technology, always looking for new solutions.

haysmacintyre is committed to treating individuals fairly and rewarding them based on their merits. We are an equal pay employer and do not pay men and women differently for the same or equivalent roles.

Within this context, we present our sixth gender pay gap report for the year ended 5 April 2023. This report has been prepared in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. As it currently stands, the Gender Pay Gap regulations do not define the terms ‘men’ and ‘women’. In line with current regulations, if an employee has not self-identified as ‘male’ or ‘female’, reporting of this data has not been included.

This statement has been published in accordance with section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Haysmacintyre LLP (the Firm) has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business activities and supply chains.

The Firm does not operate in high-risk areas, and we do not consider any of our activities to be at high risk
of slavery or human trafficking. However, we remain diligent to monitor and manage this risk and are committed to tackling modern slavery in our business activities and supply chains.

As a firm, we are committed to environmental and sustainability initiatives. We recognise the importance of protecting our planet for current and future generations.

We demonstrate this commitment through several initiatives, such as reducing our carbon footprint by implementing energy-efficient practices and technologies throughout our operations. We aim to minimise waste generation by promoting recycling, reusing materials, reducing single use plastics and reducing amount of paper used. We continuously measure and improve our environmental performance through data supported measures.

Our specific initiatives can be broken down into four main pillars: Carbon, Waste, Water, and Energy, and we detail our current activity and future objectives in our statement that can be viewed by clicking the link below.

Through our achievements thus far and our future plans, we aim to remain committed to our environmental sustainability goals and will continue to review and challenge what our firm can do to minimise impact and make positive contributions to the environment, and a more sustainable future.

Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme is an important step in ensuring we work with our clients, employees and other stakeholders, to better support our local community and reduce our impact on our environment.  We are committed to operating our business in an ethical manner that is both sensitive and responsible with proper regard to our legal obligations and abiding to relevant directives, regulations and codes of practice.
