Haines & Company has been formed to provide accountancy in Reading, business consultancy and I.T. services to small and medium sized businesses. The company was formed in 1994 by Barry Haines, who left his job as Finance Director of a company providing software and computer services to Futures Exchanges around the world, and is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
The aim is to give a very high level of service to a small number of clients. This will ensure that clients get our full attention and we are able to answer their questions quickly and comprehensively. We were frustrated in practice by not having enough time to go that step further for our clients to make sure that the job is completed to their and our satisfaction, dealing with ALL the issues identified.
We believe that there is a knowledge gap in many small and medium sized enterprises. They cannot afford full-time financial expertise but would really benefit and value someone answering their day-to-day problems. We can fill this gap by becoming a virtual Financial Director.
Haines & Company is looking to grow over the next few years to form a network of qualified consultants within the business, offering accountancy, business advisory and I.T. services.
