Accountants in
Whitley Bay

We're an independent firm of Chartered Accountants based in the centre of Whitley Bay.

Harrison Hutchinson Ltd. is an independent firm of Chartered Accountants focusing on the individual and their privately owned businesses. The firm was founded in 1957 as a tax consultancy and although the range of services provided has expanded considerably to include audit, accounts, payroll, VAT and financial services, the focus on tax remains core to the practice.

Accounts Preparation

We prepare fully compliant accounts for all types of business entity. In addition to year end accounts we also prepare a full range of management accounts and management information. Our bookkeeping staff can also carry out bookkeeping work at your premises or in our office, developing bookkeeping systems to suit your needs and working with you and your staff to maintain and improve your records.


We give advice on tax planning and tax mitigation for all the major taxes in addition to the processing of tax returns for businesses and self assessment for individuals. We also prepare and submit VAT returns and help clients complete their own VAT returns, offering VAT advice and planning relevant to the specific sector you operate in.


We are Registered Auditors authorised to carry out audit work in the UK by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. Our work includes reporting on business accounts, the handling of clients’ money and independent examination reports. Please visit for further details.

Payroll Administration

We administer a large number of payrolls for both weekly and monthly paid employees including RTI submissions and auto-enrolment. Outsourcing payroll ensures you remain up to date with legislation, confidentiality can be maintained and your staff get paid.

Business Planning

Business planning is becoming a more frequent aspect of commercial life. Whether it is in support of bank facilities, grant funding or a business sale, we can help you prepare a business plan to suit your needs. We use specialist software tailored to the needs of the users.

Company Secretarial

If you operate through a limited company, a Company Secretary is no longer legally necessary in most instances. However, there are still documents which must be filed with Companies House and the efficient legal structure for your company needs to be considered. We can help with these issues through our company secretarial subsidiary H Two Ltd.
