Helping accountants grow

HCWA member firms work together in order to share best practice from a technical, training and client communication perspective.

If you're considering membership you could be benefiting from:


"Our firm's fee income has grown over 15% in the last twelve months. During that time we have received direct support from HCWA which has allowed us to fully appreciate the need to be genuinely client-centric in all our communications. Whilst this was originally targeted to prospective clients, we have also applied this to our existing clients with huge success and it can be clearly demonstrated that this is as a direct result of the support we have received from HCWA and in particular, Mark Perry."

Mike Brown, Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP

"Being part of HCWA is key to our success - as a direct result of our relationships within the association via shared training, experiences, knowledge and support, we grew by 12% in 2014 and continue to do so."

Jonathan Wilson, Barnett & Turner Accountants Ltd


Saving accountants time

HCWA member firms work together to help one another discover, share and implement best practice.

A willingness to share the good, the bad and the, at times, not-so-pleasant realities of running and developing a firm of accountants means our members are able to learn from one another's failures and successes.

If you are thinking of joining HCWA you could be benefiting from:


"The annual conference and managing partner forums, along with a number of specialised forums, have always saved me time and improved our firm. The facility to be completely open with other members, and benefit from their experiences has meant we have avoided potential pitfalls and helped others avoid them too."

Mark Johns, Princecroft Willis Ltd

"As a Managing Partner I've found the support provided by HCWA, the other member firms and specifically other Managing Partners has enabled me to focus my efforts on making my business more efficient and a better place to work."

Angus McCuaig, Hardie Caldwell LLP


Helping accountants sleep

It can be lonely out there. With increased fee-pressure, burden of compliance, employment legislation and the unique ways in which an accountancy firm operates, it's easy to feel isolated.

HCWA members rest easy while enjoying the following benefits:


"We are one of the newer members of HCWA and there was a fair degree of scepticism as to the benefits of membership. Once we joined and embraced the concept, we found the support and experience upon which we could draw to be of huge benefit in so many areas. We believe that HCWA is now an intrinsic part of the way we operate the firm."

Ian Brown, Bulley Davey

Mark Perry, HCWA
