Local Matters, National Strength!

Rickaby & Co is now part of Haines Watts. The focus on providing a high level of service to owner managed businesses will remain unchanged as a result, and the support to clients will continue to be provided by the same team, from the same office, and at the same prices.

Existing clients will see a change of logo, and a move from the 'Rickaby & Co blue' to ' Haines Watts's red', but otherwise the visible changes will be minimal. 

Haines Watts LogoWhilst we will continue to offer the full range of traditional compliance services, such as accounts preparation, tax return completion, payroll, VAT and bookkeeping, as Business Growth Accountants, Haines Watts also offers a host of additional, innovative products and services to help our clients develop their businesses and achieve their goals for growth.

Our emphasis is always for our team to build a strong, lasting relationship with our clients, encouraging them to talk to any of us at any time, so we understand their unique needs, challenges and goals. We then allocate a Partner and Client Manager to each client and develop a personally tailored service package for them that can change in line with their needs. 


The stereotypical image of an accountancy firm being old fashioned and staid is happily a thing of the past! We know there are massive benefits to be gained from technology and innovation and use both to provide a high quality, efficient and secure service to all of our clients. Examples include our Secure Document Exchange and Business Modelling software amongst others! 


Too often we hear from new clients that their previous advisors were uncommunicative, unwelcoming and didn't offer proactive advice, concentrating purely on compliance work. We do things differently and investigate any opportunity to help, whether to reduce clients' tax liability, improve their cashflow or through any of the other myriad ways we identify as we work with them.
