Established in 2006
H & S Accounting Ltd (formerly HK Accountancy) was originally established in 2006, when Hannah, the director, began a small freelance bookkeeping business. She then went on to offer independent accountancy services after gaining her degree, and as her client base grew, so did the business.
She decided in 2016 to expand somewhat and introduce a new employee and change structure.
Although the company thrives and continues to grow, Hannah's vision has not changed, she has no desire to become a large accountancy firm and prides herself and her team on offering accounting and taxation services in a relaxed environment, without the jargon, in a more informal atmosphere than most practices. She is keen to always have close working relationships with clients whom her and her team get to know personally. No client will ever just be a 'number'.
Keen to be as transparent and honest with prospective clients, it is important to note that being that H & S Accounting is a home based practice, the address shown on the companies house register and on the website below, is for correspondence only. For privacy and security reasons, the practice address will only be made available once an accountant - client relationship has been established.
Hannah Knight ICPA
Director and Principle Accountant.
I am a member of the ICB, ICPA and CPA and have gained accounting qualifications both in the UK and the USA.
But besides my qualifications and experience, I am a human being and despite what some stereotypes may suggest, I do not sit behind a desk, judging creative tax deductions.
So here's me:
I am a mother, an animal lover (3 beautiful cats), I love wine (particularly Rioja and Chianti, which are also the names of two of my cats), I love to travel, am a sucker for a romance book and cheese is my favourite food (despite being dairy intolerant - some sacrifices have to be made). I even have tattoos (*shock horror*).
I think it's important that anyone reading this understands, I don't believe in professional stereotypes, the reason I have built a good reputation and close working relationships with my clients is because I am as honest and open with them as I expect them to be with me.
Who I work with
At times,we are approached by individuals and companies requesting advice and services that are outside of our remit. We also, on occasion, are unable to fulfill requests that are beyond what we are able to offer clients as a small home based practise.
We work alongside many other professionals within the same field and other sectors and have fantastic working relationships with both independant practices and larger firms. So if we are unable to help you in your request, We may be able to refer you to someone who can.
Examples of some of the professionals we work with are - Auditors, Insolvency Specialists, Solicitors, Chartered Financial Advisers, Investment Specialists, Pensions Advisers, Mortgage Advisers, Insurance Brokers, Startup Mentors and Career Coaches
We are also happy to work with any professionals that you may already employ for your business.
