In such a competitive and regulated sector, you need support that understands your business, is informed and up to date and will always be ready with practical, plain-speaking advice. All of which you’ll find with haysmacintyre.
haysmacintyre is widely regarded as one of the best firms for audits outside the Big Four, with the bonus of being more personable. But there’s more to us than audits.
We’ve grown our specialist Financial Services team rapidly in recent years, not only to fulfil our clients’ year-end audit and compliance obligations, but increasingly to satisfy demand from businesses wanting a complete accounting service.
Many come to us at launch or even pre-launch stage for help with structuring, company and VAT registration, and ask us to handle the essential day-to-day aspects such as Company Secretarial, payroll, tax advisory and outsourced accounting. Establishing a relationship with our clients from day one allows us to offer the most helpful proactive advice.
As our long-standing clients will attest, we get to know them almost as well as they know themselves. We’ve enthusiastically supported the business journey of a client who grew from AUM of £25m to £1bn in just five years. Whether they’re a private equity group, a fund manager, fintech firm, corporate financiers or a multinational billion dollar asset manager with a UK presence, our clients keep coming back to us.
We also build strong relationships with specialists in other disciplines, which ensures we can refer you to providers who we trust to provide helpful and authoritative answers. We’re also co-founders of the MSI Global Alliance, giving you links to dependable service providers in over 100 countries worldwide.
