HB&O - Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors

When you work with HB&O, quality accounts, audit and tax services come as standard. However, running a business is about more than just balance sheets. As an independent practice, we have first-hand experience of the challenges of running and growing a business. Working with a range of organisations from the very small to the very large, we support clients through every step of their business journey, whether you are starting up or looking to sell.

Above all, we enjoy what we do. So if you’re looking for accountants who will work with you to develop and grow your business, keep you efficient and compliant but have some fun along the way, we’re the firm to work with. 



Like many organisations, Harrison Beale & Owen have been preparing for the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which came into force in the UK on 25th May 2018.

We have chosen to adopt the Information Assurance for Small Medium Enterprise (IASME) standard together with the optional module for GDPR Readiness.

The IASME framework included certification to the Government and National Cyber Security Centre’s recommended cyber security scheme called Cyber Essentials, which we first achieved in 2016. 




At Harrison Beale & Owen, we provide a full range of accountancy, business planning and independent financial advice.
