You Tube
“We appointed HURST because we want an accountant who will work in partnership with us. The personal service which they offer is exactly what we are looking for. In addition to audit we are also interested in other areas of expertise which they have which we intend to use to help us grow our business and achieve our plans.”
- Meyer Group Ltd

 “UK Healthcare needed a firm who understood our business and with significant experience in the not for profit sector. As a FSA registered business their experience from a regulatory perspective will also be invaluable as we grow our portfolio. From our initial meeting with HURST they instilled us with confidence and immediately had suggestions regarding our future strategy.”
- UK Healthcare

“We were looking for more than an auditing service. We wanted to work with people who would become part of the team, see the big picture and review our business as a whole. With Hurst we are getting the added value we’ve lacked in the past. With a strategy of concentrating on one key area of the business we hope to realise some big goals as a global market leader.”
- Harman Technology

“HURST have worked with us for a number of years now and their advice goes beyond the standard financial input: they are a sounding board for the business; a source of new ideas; strategic partners when it comes to planning , and generally provide support for the senior team here as we need it.

“I was looking for a accountancy firm who were experts in the financial services sector and who would offer me fresh insights and new ideas. With HURST I got all these things, and furthermore I thoroughly enjoy working with Helen and the wider team.”

- Oliver Valves

“Having been with a national firm of accountants we wanted a new team with fresh ideas who would make a significant contribution to our ambitious business growth plans.

They have taken the burden of our IOM tax compliance away from us, whilst keeping us fully informed of progress so that we have peace of mind as well as time to concentrate on other things.”

"We appointed HURST as our auditors two years ago. The transition from our previous big firm auditors was smooth and painless. They provide a disciplined approach to the audit. A plan is agreed and a timetable provided. No surprises on the fee. Their support on how we could improve our existing accounting procedures has also been invaluable. A great team of people to work with and a refreshing approach."
"HURST quickly understood our strategy needs. They harnessed their accounting, tax and corporate skills and seamlessly provided us with a tailored solution to maximise shareholder value. They delivered it in clear timely manner and supported us at every stage of the implementation. There were no surprises on the fee."
“I can always pick up the telephone to HURST for advice and not worry about receiving a bill”
- SMD Textiles
“I would have no hesitation in recommending HURST to other trustees looking for a first class audit service”
- Greater Manchester Chamber

"Having used Hurst's services for a number of years now, I am pleased to say that they remain on top of their game and continue to deliver an excellent level of service. Equally as important, they respond to my many queries with patience and a smile! All of the team members we have dealt with are professional, knowledgeable and take a common-sense, realistic approach to the matter in hand."
- Equilibrium Asset Management

“Having first used Hurst for our year end compliance work (tax calculations and statutory accounts), they managed to complete our requirement in a fast and efficient manner and with little interference in our day to day operations.  So, when we then needed specialist tax advice it was quite clear that Hurst were the company for us.  Over the next 6 months they then helped us understand the best way and best timing of re-structuring our shareholding and management team.

The main reason we will use Hurst from now on for all accountancy affairs is that they have dedicated teams to each area of accountancy and business development, and within these teams are dedicated specialists to that particular area.  As an SME it is then both important and good for us to get these various specialists in one room and discuss the future of our business whilst considering all aspects (ie both the commercial view and also tax beneficial view).”
