Striving to be the best accountants in leicestershire

We become one of your team.

The Business Hut began its journey in 2014 in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, starting as most businesses do – a solution to a problem.  We noticed that not all small businesses had the requirement to operate an accounts department but required continual assistance with their bookkeeping & accounts. Bookkeeping and other business administrative tasks were often assigned to employees that were covering other roles within the business, which had the potential to lead to errors, inefficiencies and a longer year end process for Accountants. What we wanted to do was bridge that gap, providing outsourced bookkeeping, administrative support and accountancy services to our clients to ensure the financial side of the business is always accurate, relevant and tidy.

Our office dog Beryl is very much part of the team! She’s responsible for providing pet therapy, cuddles and a friendly welcome to new and existing clients alike.
