An Accountant with a Heart – In the Heart of your Business
Forget everything you know about accountants. I’m not like them.
Hetty Verney Accounts is a Xero Silver partner. As such we’re happy to either train you to do your own book-keeping or take it off your hands so you can forget all about it.
I’ll see to it that your payroll is submitted on time – every time. E-payslips take the hassle out of payroll and auto-enrolment pension.
I’ll help you optimise your pay so that you make the most of any tax breaks available whilst complying with HMRC’s rigorous regulations. But that’s not all. We’ll also submit your tax return within 60 days of receiving all paperwork – guaranteed.
I suggest quarterly meetings either by phone, Zoom or Skype to discuss your tax planning issues.
Who do I work with?
The ideal clients for the Accounts with Hetty approach are these types of businesses:
- Small Business Owners
- Sole Traders
- Individual Self-Assessment Clients

Preparation and Compliance
Putting the above another way: I’ll prepare all your accounts and tax returns and deal with the compliance work. And I’ll also ensure that you don’t overpay your tax and that you make the most of your legitimate expenses.
With the exception of accountants and bookkeepers, no-one started a business for the love of spreadsheets. But that’s okay – because that’s where I come in! The bits you hate, fill me with joy. Let me do those and free yourself to do the thing that you excel at. The thing that you went into business to do in the first place.
I’ll even help run the bits of your business that you enjoy all the while making sure you keep HMRC and Companies House smiling.
It’s my opinion that your accountant should be at the heart of your business, not on the outside. Thought that doesn’t mean I won’t be tough with you when it’s needed. But I’m here to help – not to take over.
An accountant with a heart – at the heart of your business. That’s what you get from Accounts with Hetty.
How would it feel to make more profit so you can pay yourself what you’re worth without affecting your cash flow.
I’ll teach you:
- How to trim your expenses to maximise your profit.
- What to do, to get your business to be permanently profitable.
- How to control your money – rather than it controlling you.
- Techniques for trimming your expenses to maximise your profit.
- Oh – you don’t have any profit? Never fear – Hetty is here to show you how you can start making a profit with even the smallest amount of income.
- I’ll give you the blueprint to set up the system to make it work for you.
All the blood sweat and tears that you’ve put into running your business and the countless sleepless nights. How many times have you had to say to your family ‘I must finish this’ or ‘we’re a bit short this month’? Well – say hello to NO MORE of that!
- No more worrying about your tax bill.
- No more worrying if you’re going to be able to afford to pay yourself after you’ve paid all the expenses this month
- No more being out of control of your money
- NO MORE NO PROFIT!
I’m not a business coach. Let me establish that from the outset. But I do coach you through any blocks that you might have around your numbers. A maths mentor if you will.
I’m here to support you, give you the motivation, guidance and accountability that you might need to build your business. And then to make sure it’s as profitable as it can be. Sometimes that might mean something as simple as tweaking a few figures in a very small way. But one that can have a huge effect on your profit.

Who am I?
I’m Hetty Verney. I’ve been an accountant for 21 years and have run my own businesses for almost the same amount of time.
I’ve run start-ups. I’ve helped others to set up start-ups and then helped them grow their businesses. And I’ve also sold various businesses too.
All that has given me a unique view. Both as an accountant and a business owner. So I know where you are and where you’re coming from. But I also know how we can run our businesses in a much more profitable way and actually pay ourselves what we’re worth.
I’m a Business mentor for the Young Entrepreneurs at the Prince’s Trust. And I’m passionate about helping entrepreneurs to be unafraid of their numbers. With my help, my clients wrestle their numbers to the ground and get them working for them to make their businesses more profitable.
