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. 




Our clients share extremely confidential information with us, so we take our commitment to data privacy seriously.

To give our clients reassurance, we adopted the Information Assurance for Small Medium Enterprise (IASME) standard together with the optional module for GDPR Readiness. 

Our commitment to GDPR is ongoing so we have been certified to IASME ever since. This ensures that all members of the team – old and new – understand the importance of GDPR and conduct themselves in a compliant manner.




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