CHW Small Business Accounting is a Bolton-based firm of chartered accountants and business advisors specialising in supporting and advising business owners. Our straight-talking and honest approach, combined with our intelligent use of technology underpin our values of providing clients with the best possible service we can.
…we’re businesspeople – meaning we look at your business as if it were our own, providing input in the form of advice, recommendations and tips on how to improve it.
We specialise in helping entrepreneurial owner-managed businesses through various stages of their lifecycle. We understand the need for a proactive accountant, which is why we take such a vested interest in our clients’ businesses.
Our teams work in specialist departments, but we don’t operate in silos. We work together as a team for the best advantage of each client and their requirements.
When you become a client of CHW, you’ll get access to people in each of our teams, from accounts, tax, VAT, payroll, advisory, corporate finance and financial services. No matter what you need along the way, we’ve got someone who can help you through it. Your relationship partner will be your primary point of contact – making sure everything is working as it should to provide you with the best advice and service.
Our back-office system is streamlined to offer the most value for money. We have the teams in place to ensure everything ticks along as it should. We’re more than happy for you to compare our prices with other accountants – you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Whilst annual accounts and compliance is generally a given, the difference between a good accountant and a great one, is a combination of the advice they give you and the service they provide.
It is important to get the numbers right. And, of course, we do. But, we never lose sight of the fact that business isn’t just about numbers.
