"Our school has been working with Hobsons since September 2000 and they carry out a range of audits for us, including:
- Annual ESFA audit
- Teachers pension scheme audit
- School Private and Partnership accounts audit
Hobsons ensure that we abide by the Academies Financial Handbook to guarantee that the Public Funds we receive are used correctly and for the correct purpose.
We constantly receive accounting and financial updates on matters which affect our school to ensure that we continue to meet our legal obligations.
I joined the school in September 2016 and have found Hobsons extremely supportive and knowledgeable during this time. On a personal note I have found their support invaluable.
As an accounting and auditing company I would recommend them unreservedly."

"Stone Soup Academy have worked with Hobsons for 5 years now and they have been excellent Accountants to work with and highly professional. They help complete our monthly management accounts and our annual audit and help with compliance submissions, which the Esfa require and many other problems or issues. We work closely with Katie Hart who is amazing, there is not a time when we call that she is not available and is very helpful and highly professional. We also outsource our payroll with Hobsons and the payroll team are also so helpful and professional with any questions or queries, which we may have.
Hobsons have always gone over and above helping our Academy with any situation and I cannot speak highly enough of them.
I would recommend Hobsons to any business."

"We have worked with Hobsons for all 16 years of our business life.
I started The Dairy Creative Agency in 2002 and knew I would need a solid and reliable accountancy firm behind me if I was to realise my business growth ambitions.
I can honestly say that the team has been a joy to work with during that time. We handle all our day to day financial work whilst Juliet, Michele and their teams handle payroll, pensions and year end figures as well as any other compliance issues.
I think the best thing is that we feel that we are getting a very close, friendly and personal service - yet the firm is actually quite large and has all the expertise to handle much bigger businesses.
I would recommend Hobsons to any other business in our area and although we have had many approaches from other firms looking to offer us a service…. We aren’t going anywhere!"
The Dairy Creative Agency
"We initially asked Hobsons to provide a payroll service. Michele and her team are professional, approachable & proactive, removing all of the stress that a payroll such as ours creates. We were so impressed that we asked to meet with other members of the firm to look at our tax and remuneration planning strategy. We now use Hobsons for all our accounting requirements."
"Hobsons have managed our payroll for many years and provide an excellent, professional and friendly service. We moved our Audit requirements to them 3 years ago and we are extremely happy with all aspects of the service they provide. They are very approachable and are always there to assist or advise. We would not hesitate to recommend them to any business whether large or small."

"Hobsons have provided audit services to PWP for many years and I have no hesitation in recommending them. They provide a rigorous, yet friendly, audit service and their expertise and knowledge of the owner managed business sector is clearly evident. Hobsons take an interest in our business beyond the formal requirements of the audit, and we view them as close business advisors to the Board."
PWP Building Services Ltd
"We've been with Hobsons for over 20 years as our business has developed from sole trader through partnership to a limited company. Although I imagine we are one of their smaller clients we are never made to feel that way. They're big enough to offer authority and credibility but give us a very personal accounting service. We know they'll go the extra mile for us if we need them to and we trust them to work in our best interests."
BE Production Ltd
"We have outsourced our payroll to Hobsons for the last 5 years and we certainly have no plans or reason to change. Hobsons deliver competitive rates and a confidential, professional service with an approachable and friendly style. I have no hesitation in recommending them to any company, no matter how large or small!"

"When in my role as Company Secretary for Abachem Engineering Ltd, whenever I needed help, the first people that would spring to mind were the staff at Hobsons Chartered Accountants in Newark.
Katy Ward has been my rock. If in doubt ask Katy. She was always at the end of the telephone and even a visit if needed. Sometimes it was just a little reassurance that was needed but this was always delivered with a smile and kind word."
"Paul Bird has given me help with any wages problem I had, again, as with Katy, Paul always had the time and explanations to put my mind at rest.
In fact I can say, that all of Hobsons staff, even the reception staff go out of their way to help. I would strongly recommend Hobsons to anyone looking for a good Accountant you can trust and rely on."
