Academy Schools Testimonials

In all their dealings with Eggar’s School, we have found HWB staff to be very professional, knowledgeable and approachable. They do an excellent job of keeping us informed as they are always at the end of the phone, host regular School Business Manager meetings, send out EFSA Updates and have set up this VAT web advice link, which is very user friendly.

Eggars New

Alan Rolfe has assisted efficiently on any VAT queries, with clear and concise advice, especially with unusual aspects of VAT. i.e. Invoicing for Head Teacher secondment.

Amery Hill

Alan Rolfe, as with all the staff from HWB, are always extremely friendly and helpful, and provide an excellent service.

SFreemantle School

We have used HWB as our Auditors since January 2012 and couldn’t be happier with the service they have provided. There have been numerous occasions when we have required some help or advice regarding VAT matters and the three words that spring to mind are professional, friendly and enthusiastic! We would certainly recommend HWB based on our experiences.


Since our conversion to an Academy the advice Alan has provided has been invaluable in ensuring we meet the requirements set down by HMRC. His help was particularly useful when setting up the school’s Trading Subsidiary & in relation to our community lettings which resulted in a benefit to our customers and made us more appealing as a venue from a cost perspective.


This service has been exceptional value for money and has enabled us to reduce waste and increase expenditure in other essential areas while other schools are having to cut costs across the board. I have no hesitation in recommending HWB for financial consultancy support.


Our testimonials tell you all you need to know about how we help our academy clients with first-rate service. We pride ourselves on our proactive approach to your specific accountancy needs and that is why producing and auditing your annual accounts is about much more than making you compliant.
