start of quotation from satisfied HRBS client, MG of Bristol
I've been using Keith since February 2007 and have been extremely pleased with the service. Nearly all communication is via email, which is fine with me.
On the few occasions that I really wanted to speak on the phone, he was available to give advice.
He keeps an eye on my business and personal financial matters and comes up with good advice on savings or things that I should or shouldn't be doing. He has a close eye to detail and picked up on small details that I've missed.
Last year was the first year for my limited company and a learning curve for me, but Keith was very helpful in giving me advice.
I would definitely recommend his services.

Keith Silman, our MD and driving force, is highly experienced and after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with Arthur Andersen in 1990, has had senior manager/director roles in regional and international accountancy practices, a well-known high-street ladies fashion retail group, multi-million pound SMEs and has also been an EU approved mentor/advisor to Yorkshire businesses. His approach is hands-on and he will help you understand how to run your business and take control of its (and your) future ... and, as an added bonus, save tax and NIC whilst you do so.

Our passion at HRBS is to support and develop new and small businesses. Aspects particularly important in the current economic climate, include managing growth, controlling debtors and creditors and, above all, cashflow.


Every week we have new clients come to us because they are fed up with their old accountants. Common complaints are that they were passed to an inexperienced, unqualified junior clerk, or the person responsible for their accounts changed every year. They have chosen HRBS for better pro-active advice, personal service and for some, lower fees. Our offices are based in rural Yorkshire and by using email and online services wherever possible we save money and pass these cost savings onto our clients, as well as being more environmentally friendly, which benefits everyone.

Our fees are very competitive. All accounting and taxation work is done by a qualified and highly experienced accountant, and not delegated to unqualified staff nor subcontracted as is increasingly the case with many accounting practices. You are therefore guaranteed a consistent, personal service from an accountant who takes an interest in you and your business.

Our goal is to provide a high quality service at a reasonable price, within budget and without any surprises. We introduced fixed fees and a service menu several years ago as a natural extension of our support to our clients. There are no hidden extras in our pricing structure and we agree all fees in advance.

Sample fees are:

(All costs quoted exclude VAT).

For more details on our fees and services visit our fee guide here (opens in new window).

Payments are spread over the year by monthly standing order. Monthly payments are based on an annual charge which must be paid in full by the end of your financial year. If you are part way through your financial year, the annual fee is spread over the remaining months in your financial year. If your financial year has already finished, we'll issue an invoice which is payable in two equal instalments, a 50% deposit and the balance in full once the accounts are provided to you for approval and before they are submitted to HMRC and Companies House.

We are authorised by HMRC to provide the full range of accounting, taxation, payroll and company formation services.

In 2007, HMRC (formerly Inland Revenue and HM Customs & Excise) introduced Money Laundering Regulations that mean only authorised businesses such as ourselves can legally provide accounting, book-keeping, payroll, VAT, company formation, company secretarial and registered office services.

Our quotation includes a quarterly review of your accounts.

Unlike many other accountants, we want to support our clients and welcome regular contact. The monthly/quarterly review of your business and how it is performing lets us suggest areas where you may cut costs (for example free banking), improve profitability and also keep up with tax and VAT laws. For our many limited company owner-director clients we regularly review the most tax effective way of extracting profits from the business.

Regular reviews of your accounting records saves us time when preparing your year end accounts. Our investment in reviewing your accounts saves you money!

Why are our fees so reasonable?

Easy ... we are efficient, knowledgeable and experienced. HRBS is based near the Yorkshire market town of Penistone (between Sheffield, Barnsley and Huddersfield), so you are not paying for expensive city centre offices.

We service clients all over UK.

Using email, pdfs, online book-keeping and online filing, we service clients all over UK and provide a choice of online book-keeping packages including Liberty Accounts and Clear Books. We use dropbox to exchange files in secure shared folders which is much more secure and easier than emailing files back and forth.

Its easy to change your accountant.

If you are not getting the service you want from your current accountant ... change! Every week we gain new clients who have had no support from their old accountant, they have just been left to their own devices until the year end. Its then usually too late to deal with share allocation, dividends, loans to directors, payroll, VAT registration, benefits in kind, bad debts etc.

Common issues new clients have had with their old accountant ...

Save yourself stress ... choose HRBS.

We will work with you throughout the year at no extra cost.

Our charges are fixed for 2 years.

We calculate our fees based on the complexity of your business, volume of transactions and quality of your accounting records. All of our clients provide us with a copy of their accounting records so that we can prepare an individual quotation.

Fees are payable by monthly standing order and the above costs exclude VAT.

Why go anywhere else?

We are passionate about supporting new and small businesses, offer a high level of expertise and personal service ... all at a fixed annual fee.
