About Us

We charge competitive rates and can offer a fixed fee basis for most types of work which you can opt to pay by monthly instalments.

We are owned and run by Hazel Cooch FCCA who has over 30 years experience of working in accountancy practice.

HAC ACCOUNTANT

About Me

I qualified over 30 years ago and have spent most of my career before starting my own practice working for other smaller accountancy practices gaining extensive experience in tax and accounts for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and individuals.

I have dealt with a range of business types from Companies with multi-million pound turnovers to mums working from home with their own part-time business. I have had significant dealings with property income (lettings, development, capital gains), LLPs, and higher earning individuals. I also have experience of dealing with tax investigations and negotiating with HMRC.

I also know what it’s like to run your own business as I have the benefit of direct practical experience, being heavily involved with the administration and accounts side of a non-accountancy business for several years.

I am friendly, approachable and probably less formal than your typical accountant. I’m always happy to explain things over a cup of tea!
