We are pleased to announce that Burns Waring are, as of 1st May 2014, fully merged with Haines Watts Kent LLP, the Kent partnership of the national accounting group with many offices across the UK.

Other than additional and improved technical support and professional services, especially in tax, clients should experience little change – they can continue to talk to the same partners or individuals as in the past – we’re all still here to help you as before.

The Canterbury office and team will remain as is – phone numbers will remain, the address will be the same other than we are now Haines Watts Kent LLP and not Burns Waring.

The Maidstone team will move into the larger offices of Haines Watts in Maidstone. Initially the phones will be answered by Canterbury office until the phone numbers can be re-directed properly.

The new address details for Maidstone are

Haines Watts Kent LLP
4 & 5 Kings Row
Armstrong Road
Maidstone ME15 6AQ

Tax Schemes

A hot topic currently, tax schemes still provide much interest amongst those trying to shelter their hard earned money.  We are planning a seminar for September 2012 in which we will provide details of what schemes are still available, discuss their merits, and the risks attached.  If you wish to attend the seminar, please give us a call and get your name on the list so we can arrange a suitable venue.


On-line software workshop

There is growing interest in on-line accounting software - if you are interested and would like to know more about it and see the software demonstrated, please give Richard a call.  We will add your name to the list and when we have sufficient numbers to make it viable, will arrange a half-day workshop, letting you know the date in good time.


Community Interest Companies

We've had a number of inquiries recently about forming and operating Community Interest Companies - if you are interested, please give Stephen a call and, provided the numbers make it viable, we will arrange a workshop on this subject in the near future.
