We are experienced, hands-on business people

We are also senior accountants, with extensive high-level management industry experience, combined with “Big 4” accountancy practice experience.

Dedicated and consistent support

Piper Hulse is our business and we like to retain the personal touch by maintaining strong relationships with a select group of clients. We could grow our business 10 fold if we wanted to, but it would involve us taking more of a managerial role which would result in us being less “hands on” with our clients. This isn’t what we want to do.

Instead, unlike many other accountants, we personally work closely with you, spending our time helping you build your empire rather than you helping us build our empire.

We are active locally and well connected

We are active and well-connected in the Staffordshire business community, helping local businesses succeed and facilitating networking and business developments. We’re proud supporters of The Eccleshall NetworkTEN – a not for profit organisation developed to bring together residents, businesses and local good causes in Eccleshall.
