Working with us
Join us for a cost effective service provided by professionally qualified staff working with you to:
Minimise Your Tax Liabilities
“There’s no such thing as Government money, it’s taxpayers’ money”
– Margaret Thatcher
Paying more tax than the legal minimum reduces your reserves and thus your ability to take advantage of business opportunities as they arise, or simply increase your standard of living.
Even in these days of austerity there are a number of measure that enable businesses to legally reduce their tax liabilities. Some such as Research & Development Tax Credits and Capital Investment Allowances are actively supported by the Government. Others are simply overlooked by business owners too busy with the day to day running of their business.
At Hurn Accountants we are committed to working with you to ensure that all available tax claims are made and we review this every year. There is no need to fear the tax man, everything we do will be perfectly above board and fully documented.
Can we save you tax? Come in and see us, we’ll charge you nothing for the meeting and leave you to decide if working with us if the best move you could make.
Secure Your Business & Personal Assets
"The superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may come. When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of ruin. When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come. Thus his person is not endangered and his states and their clans are preserved."
We will work with you to help ensure that what you have earned to date remains yours by considering your:
Strengths: How can you use them to your advantage
Weaknesses: How can you improve these areas
Opportunities: How can you maximise your advantage from these
Threats: How can you avoid or at least mitigate potential threats to your business?
The above SWOT test is just the starting point and will help start a discussion that evolves over time to become a working plan for your business.
In addition we will consider with you how to protect your personal assets from future events. Allowing you to run your business safe in the knowledge that all defences are in place.
Don’t find yourself saying “I should have seen it coming”
Achieve Your Business Ambitions
“Drive thy business or it will drive thee.”
- Benjamin Franklin
What are your ambitions? Retire early, sell up, expand, maintain the status quo, pass the business on to your children?
Where would you like your business to be 5 years from now?
How will you get there?
What are the obstacles in your way?
How can you overcome them?
These are just some of the issues we can work through with you; as only when your ambitions are known, can a workable plan be implemented to achieve them.
Life happens and it may be your ambitions change in the future – fine we can revisit the questions above and adjust the planning as required.
"We have been clients of Hurn Accountants in Reading for over a decade now and are still delighted with the support they give us. Over that time we have seen good and bad economic times and have regularly needed their advice. They have been like a third partner in the business helping us with everything from payroll to profit management and everything else in-between. Always patiently explaining our options and guiding us towards a workable solution. A really great firm to deal with."

"From working at home to starting my first salon Hurn Accountants in Reading were right behind me. I had no idea about leases, employment law etc. etc. I’m a hairdresser. He let me carry on with what I do and sorted out everything else and my dream of my first salon was realised. I’ve been a client for 15 years now and will be for as long as I’m in business."
"Professional, informed, pro-active, friendly, supportive, cost effective, accurate and, as a bit of a bonus, often hilarious. Everything you’d ever want from an accountant. Bob and his team are superb. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and would go out of my way to recommend Hurn Accountants."
