Products & Services

Whether we’re working with a small start-up or a large multi-national company, at HB&O, we provide a great deal more than the nuts and bolts of traditional accountancy services. Over the last ten years, we’ve built a team of passionate and experienced individuals who go the extra mile when it comes to keeping your SME or owner-managed business in sound financial shape.


Our team of tax specialists will work with you in the context of an ever-changing tax environment, the latest legislation and the latest financial planning requirements to identify and take advantage of all the reliefs and concessions appropriate to you.
We'll look at all aspects of your business tax and personal tax needs, providing practical advice and guidance geared to your individual circumstances.


From cash flow forecasting to performance management, our business advisory experts work with you to help your business achieve its full potential.
Our business advisory services include:

Business plan writing
Grant applications
Financial performance reviews
Management information and key performance indicators (KPIs)
Financial forecasting and budget setting
Business system reviews and recommendations
Support and training for internal accounting teams


An accurate, efficient payroll service is a key part of any business, so that you can be sure that your people are paid correctly and on time and that you meet all HM Revenue & Customs' reporting requirements, including ‘Real Time Information’ reporting.
Our professional payroll service delivers a cost-effective alternative to employing your own in-house staff and buying and maintaining software and stationery, particularly when combined with our other VFO services.


As a leading provider of accountancy services to contractors and freelancers in Coventry and Warwickshire and beyond, we offer a suite of Virtual Finance Office packages specifically designed around your needs.
All three contractors VFO packages – Basic, Advanced and Premium - include a Xero cloud accounting licence, annual accounts and tax returns, with a starting price of £95 + VAT per month. Our cloud accounting system allows you to monitor and manage your business wherever you are based, with unlimited telephone support from our accounting specialists whenever you need it.

From Our Website

Making the complex clear and looking beyond the balance sheet to pinpoint what your business really needs to make strides, our team works together as one unit to create an accounting solution that's right for you, wherever you are on your journey. Making the complex clear and looking beyond the balance sheet to pinpoint what your business really needs to make strides, our team works together as one unit to create a solution that's right for you, wherever you are on your journey. The experience of working with HB&O differs so greatly from our other experiences of working with accountants.


We're accountants - of course we will do your accounts. But the right accountant offers so much more than ticking the boxes of compliance. The life of a business owner can be a lonely place sometimes and we know you need a sounding board, a confidant and someone you can trust to offer the advice you need. We are our people. It might be clich, but they really are what makes us special. The loyalty of our team (we're talking ten, twenty or even thirty years service) speaks volumes about the way we do business.


Year-end accounts are a requirement for all limited companies, but they don't have to be an arduous task. The more organised you are throughout the year, the less of a task they become. If your day-to-day financial admin is becoming a burden, take a look at our Virtual Finance Office to see if we can help lift some of the pressure. Whether it's time to pay your Corporation Tax or file a Self-Assessment return, you don't want to have to worry about filing the right form or inputting the right information.


Whether it's a sale that will be funding your retirement or a purchase that will be fueling growth, you need to have a team you can trust to lead the process with your best interests at the forefront. Buying a business is potentially one of the biggest deals you'll ever do and, when managed correctly, can bring about a huge number of opportunities. Whether it's a new venture or expanding your existing business, we will help you identify targets, value opportunities, negotiate with sellers and structure agreements.


Compliance is what you need, but getting to the core of what you really want is where tax gets exciting. Using your personal and business objectives as the foundation, we can create a tax strategy that maximises your hard earned cash. Who doesn't want that? Whether you're looking to financially incentivise staff to improve productivity, restructure your business so you can sell with a more tax efficient outcome, or start an investment portfolio, a plan is a must. Even if minimising tax isn't your main focus, it should play a significant part in your plan, as tax implications can affect many moving parts of your overall strategy.


Audits can get a bad rap, but if you look at them as an opportunity rather than a necessary evil, they could become one of your strongest tools. Through the audit process, we'll get to know your operations inside out and offer solutions to add value, improve your internal systems and make sure you have the right controls in place to make your business work smarter, not harder. The HB&O audit team are the elite. The external deadlines we have to meet are brutal and your team helped us hit every one.


Running a business doesn't leave much time to shop around for the best value providers of essentials like utilities, stationery or couriers. Reduce your business expenditure and maximise your profits with our Cost Management Service, where we identify where you can make savings through process improvement, cost optimisation and supplier selection. And if we can't identify any savings at a level pre-agreed with you, you pay us nothing. When we do, your fee is calculated at 50% of the amount saved, so you will always gain financially.
