Making the switch to Hawthorn Tax

This client had outgrown their old accountant and after making the switch to Hawthorn Tax, realised how valuable a good accountant can be.

The Growth

Why They Came To Us

One of our many valued clients is a renowned beauty accreditation business which experienced significant growth during COVID-19.

As the business grew rapidly, the owner felt their current accountant couldn’t keep up and they didn’t have a grasp over how the business was performing or their tax obligations. A relative recommended them to Hawthorn Tax as we had the necessary expertise and experience to turn the situation around.

We held an initial meeting with the owner to assess the position. It became clear that their existing accountant was in over their head and had let them down in a few important areas.


How We Helped

We began by reassuring them that we could help. We then set out what changes we would immediately make, and what actions we would routinely take as their accountant and tax adviser. After being appointed, we seamlessly migrated their accounting and bookkeeping software to Xero.

We managed the ongoing bookkeeping, allowing our client to get better real time visibility and oversight of the company’s financial information. This gave them back some free time which they so badly needed.

We are always there for them. They’ll never be left worrying or not understanding. We believe this is fundamental to allowing a business to flourish financially.


Our client is now confident with the reliability of their accounts and tax returns. They no longer spent unnecessary time worrying or trying to chase their accountant for information.

We prepare accurate, reliable, and tailored accounting reports which give the owner a clear picture of the company’s performance. We routinely carry out all the bookkeeping, payroll and VAT returns with minimal effort from the owner. When it comes to annual accounts, company and personal tax returns, we always ensure the business and remuneration is structured as tax effectively as possible.
