Haartwells has been formed to provide accountancy, business consultancy and I.T. services to small and medium sized businesses. The company was formed in 1988 by Madhu Singh who acquired part of an established practice in Luton.
The aim is to give a very high level of service to a small number of clients. This will ensure that clients get our full attention and we are able to answer their questions quickly and comprehensively. We were frustrated in practice by not having enough time to go that step further for our clients to make sure that the job is completed to their and our satisfaction, dealing with ALL the issues identified.
We believe that there is a knowledge gap in many small and medium sized enterprises. They cannot afford full-time financial expertise but would really benefit and value someone answering their day-to-day problems. We can fill this gap by becoming a virtual
Haartwells is looking to grow over the next few years to form a network of qualified consultants within the business, offering accountancy, business advisory and I.T. services.
Apart from the more general accountancy services we can also assist you with business development and specialist tax services.
Clients prefer us because our passion shines through everything we do. We are dedicated to finding new ways to generate value for our clients.
We seek creative and innovative ways to reduce lead time, enhance information transfer processes, reduce costs and strive for operational efficiency.
We are different to other accountants
We work much more closely with our clients than traditional accountants. We also have a much smaller number of clients than normal and are selective in the clients that we act for. We want to get to know our clients businesses inside out, enabling us to easily identify problems and spot opportunities. We want to help improve profits and encourage growth.
Our mission is to always add value
Whatever we do for you, we will always carry out our work with the aim of adding value to your business. We run a very cost effective business by making the most of modern technology and homeworking, but we will never be the cheapest solution. John Ruskin defined value as follows:
"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it's well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough money to pay for something better."
