Tax Partner Adrian Young gives his opinion on today's Budget.
At Manchester based accountants HURST, we're fortunate enough to work with lots of like-minded businesses that love what we do... it's thanks to these people that we enjoy our jobs so much!
Xtra Mile Events
“HURST Corporate Finance were pivotal in getting the deal over the line. Their ability to create and manage competitive tension and to negotiate the best deal for us was fundamental in getting us an excellent result. The sale to Human Race Group ultimately means that the business is in great hands and will continue to thrive, which means a lot to us."
“During the sale process itself, HURST Corporate Finance’s ability to manage the process and get involved in the detail ensured that we not only realised full value but concluded a complex transaction within a sensible timeframe. Through HURST’s support and advice, we felt confident in being able to ‘hold our own’ against such a significant global organisation throughout the discussions and negotiations.”
Fastrak Retail (UK)
“The Hurst Corporate Finance team were a great support during the sale of our business and were there at all hours to answer questions and concerns. They showed a real dedication to sell the business for us and shared in our journey of building it up and the ultimate disposal.”
“I am extremely appreciative of the superb service that HURST Corporate Finance provided over the last four months. The advice and assistance has been invaluable and concluded with a successful completion at a value way beyond my expectations. The drive & passion by the team was inspiring. Thank you. ”
Classic Football Shirts Ltd
“The HURST team have impressed us with their experience and knowledge and we are pleased to have forged a partnership with them.”
Active Business Communications
"We wanted to work with an accountant that not only had the breath of skills and expertise to support our strategy but also was passionate about working with a fast-growing entrepreneurial business. The quality of advice and the people at HURST Accountants have made a real difference to Active, particularly during the current uncertain environment".
British Mountaineering Council
"Following a tender and interview process during a particularly problematic time, namely the start of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown, HURST impressed with its professional approach and its communication with, and support for, existing clients".
"We engaged with HURST Accountants almost 4 years ago as business partners, not “accountants”, and that is exactly what we have got. They have provided strategic input into how we operate as well as adding value to the whole leadership team with the events, hosted by world-class speakers. They are also pretty tidy with the numbers too!"

"The strapline, "unlike any other accountant", is very apt and the truest phrase that you could use for HURST Accountants. In the 20 years I've worked in the accounting profession, I've worked with various audit teams including Big 4 and mid-tier. I have never once encountered a firm that prepare the statutory financial accounts while on-site, reviewing and adjusting where necessary, or complete the tax computations at the same time as undertaking the audit. The benefits of "breaking the norm", as experienced with HURST Accountants, saves so much time for the client. I would recommend HURST to any of my contacts!"
Lancashire County Cricket Club
"It’s great to have HURST Accountants on board and we’re looking forward to working with them as our Auditors moving forward. As the Club and Foundation continue to grow, it is increasingly important that the Finance Team have the support of proactive and innovative Business Advisors; something which HURST Accountants have evidence they can provide. What impressed us most about the company was their ability to think commercially and focus on bringing forward new ideas that will add value to our business. It’s also important for us to be working with a Manchester based firm and we’re excited to see how this new relationship will grow over the coming months and years.”

"Having transferred our UK Corporation Tax requirements to HURST Accountants over the past year, we have found them to be 100% client focused. The team have been very willing and able to adapt to our exacting requirements. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and their professional and personable staff have interacted very well with a much larger accounting firm which conducts our statutory audit."
“I'm really pleased we moved to HURST Accountants. I like the audit team and think they do a good job. I also enjoy the networking and technical update courses that the firm runs. These are great for catching up with the HURST team, meeting other clients and also for the content of the course.”

I would highly recommend HURST Accountants to anyone who wants to improve their business and succeed!"
“HURST Accountants 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 very pleased with the 'can-do' attitude of the auditors and the willingness of team to be flexible where possible with our needs".
