All businesses need to provide accounts both for their own benefit, the tax authorities and where applicable the shareholders and Companies House. We can provide help in preparing the following:

Annual accounts

These are always needed and will provide detail of the profit of the business as well as a summary of its assets and liabilities.

Management Accounts

Whilst annual accounts often suffice for the very small business, to enable you to make fully informed decisions you need up to date information. Monthly or quarterly accounts can provide an invaluable tool to this as they give up to date information as to how much profit – or loss!- the business is making.

Budgets and Cash flows

These can help you keep focused on your businesses financial needs.


As well as being a chartered accountant Martin Hayward is a registered auditor and thus one of the few people in Barry and the Vale to be able to carry out audits under the Companies Act or Charities Act.
"Hayward Williams were recommended to me by a fellow retailer. I had used a few accountants previously, none of which I had been entirely satisfied with. This will be our fifteenth year using Hayward Williams, which I guess speaks for itself" - Gerald Porter, Barry Angling Centre
