"We have been with Honey Barrett for nearly 50 years and have always found them to be excellent, very helpful giving us a great deal of good advice over the years. Highly recommended!"

Chris and Jenny Heal

"I have worked with Honey Barrett for a few years now. I transitioned from another accounting firm as I wasn’t happy anymore with their services. It was worth the change! The service is stellar, emails always promptly and accurately replied, excellent advice. Denny met with me when I did the switch which was really nice of him since I am a small business. As they use Xero, the preparation of my VAT returns takes no time from me which enables me to focus my time on the business rather than filling excel files and searching for receipts. I highly recommend Honey Barrett!"

Candice, CBO Search Ltd

"We have been working with Honey Barrett for the past couple of years and have been highly impressed with their service. Their response times to queries is excellent and they have great technical knowledge and resource. They have assisted us with our Management Accounts, annual compliance, PAYE settlement agreements and ad hoc consultancy as required. We would definitely recommend them, specifically Avtar Bansel and Julie Coram, to other firms / individuals."

Elisabeth O’Brien

"I've used HB for my personal and company tax affairs for over 11 years now, and the service has always been excellent. Can recommend!"

James Chappell

"Anya and myself would like to thank both Honey Barrett and especially Natalie for all the help and guidance we have received in setting up and migrating the BloomEast bookkeeping and accounts over to Xero. We are now only using Xero for the bookkeeping and accounts and happy that we made the decision to go for it. It wasn't always easy but we had support as and when needed. We would like to emphasise again that Natalie has been brilliant at every stage of the process, from the initial course/instruction, support in setting everything up, help in migrating all the data over, and being there for all/any issues we had going forward. Thank you from us both again."

Anthony and Anya, Bloom East Ltd

"Honey Barrett have been wonderful in sorting out our taxes and reducing everything to a clear and stress-free position. Their rates are very reasonable and the level of professionalism is high. They have always been extremely responsive, promptly answering all queries with patience and diligence. They have taken all the worry and burden off us with respect to this annual, onerous task. We recommend them highly. "

Marcia Copping

"Having just sold our business, Honey Barrett, and in particular Avtar Bansel's help has been dedicated, flexible, supportive, and warm and friendly through the most stressful of times. He and his team combined expertise and sage advice with the very best client management skills when we were being flaky. Avtar consistently went above and beyond to support us and we can’t thank him enough."

Elizabeth Spencer - Phillips

"I have worked with Abi and her team for seven years now and feel completely safe in their hands. We as a Practice were so impressed with Honey Barrett's professionalism and responsiveness that we recommended them to our Primary Care Network. I believe from there, they went on to take on several more Primary Care Network's Accounts as word got around how rigorous and adept they were. I have also recently started working for another Practice in the Locality and have convinced the Partners there to change to Honey Barretts as I have such confidence in their ability to look after us diligently. River Darent Medical Group have two sites both dispensing and Kate and Natalie are brilliant at ironing out any VAT confusion. I have to say I couldn't be happier with them and would wholeheartedly recommend them to other Practices both dispensing and non-dispensing."

Julie Robbins, Business and Finance Manager, River Darent Medical Group

"I just wanted to say how incredible Tori has been over the past 2 years. She took on a pretty daunting case of trying to find and sort out my very chaotic nhs pension and my Type 2 forms etc.

As I have worked in multiple practices over 25 years this was an enormous task.Being a GP I am very used to dealing with people and Tori showed huge patience, empathy and understanding of both the minefield of nhs pensions and also the emotional stress that it caused myself.

She is a true gem and I wanted to let you know how incredible she has been.I hope I can continue to work with her as long as I am employed and have recommended her to many colleagues."

Dr Zoe Reay

"Honey Barrett, led by Abi Newbury, has been our trusted accounting firm for nearly two decades. Their dependable service ensures we have nothing to worry about. They consistently provide sound, quick, and elaborate advice, which proves invaluable for our operations. Their cost-effective solutions are noteworthy, making them a highly recommended choice for anyone seeking proficient accounting services."

Babu Hussain

"I am delighted to write and confirm how happy we all are since switching to Honey Barratt a few months ago. Moving from a large national accountant to a smaller specialist account has been easy and refreshing. We are delighted we have made the change. You already know our business exceptionally well and have been extremely helpful and very responsive. Your replies have also come back in a language we understand! Even though we are completely out of your normal geographical catchment area, it has not been a problem for either of us. There have been no problems with communications by phone, email and then holding our main accounts meeting on Teams. We look forward to continuing to work together with you and thank for your help and support."

Peter Moule

"Really happy to endorse Honey Barrett. I've been in their capable hands for several years now and feel entirely confident that their often pro-active advice in matters relating to both personal and business taxation has been absolutely spot on. They've also looked after my business accounts extremely well at the same time too. I've had dealings with Paul Knight, Avtar Bansel and Denny Carr over the years and have found each and every one of them to be extremely helpful and friendly. In short, they've been a valuable member of my "team" over the years and I certainly wouldnt hestitate to recommend them to anyone."

Whilst I don’t think my affairs are overly complicated they have dealt with my tax return in a timely and efficient manner and I am very happy with the service they provide."

Oliver Smith

"Having used several accountants over the past 25yrs, I experienced the good the bad and the ugly. So many of us know little about the world of accounting and making the best possible decisions to ensure out financial situation is managed in the best possible way. When I took the decision to use Honey Barrett, I was immediately impressed with the level of customer care, willingness to go the extra mile and helping me with all my financial accounting needs. The attention to detail was excellent, the time to execute requests was exceptionally quick and the sense of ownership was obvious from day 1. This allowed me to focus on what I need to do on a day-to-day basis, knowing that my business was in safe hands under the fantastic team at Honey Barrett. There are so many of the team that made the experience very pleasant, but those who deserve a special reference would be Avtar and Julie – an exceptional duo who provide an exceptional service. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a new accountant to speak to Honey Barrett, and if you are reading this and already have an accountant, do yourself a big favour and move your business over to Honey Barrett asap!"

Mike Harrison-Jarrett

"I have used the services of Honey Barrett for many years and always found them very friendly and helpful"

Judith Lawrence

"Excellent service, tailored to individual requirements and knowledgeable of the complex accounting that is needed for current general practice. Also provides comparison to local and national trends. Has at last made some sense of the accounts since we changed to Honey Barrett after many years of never really understanding the various sections of the accounts and they have actually saved us money. Would definitely recommend Honey Barrett to anyone looking to change accountants in this ever-changing environment of primary care and general practice."

Naz Khan

"Our small business in the construction sector has been a client at HB on and off for over 16 years. Over the last 18 months the team at the Wadhurst Office as looked after us and the service and advice have been exceptional. Avtar in particular has helped us enormously with future tax planning for the business and taking control; Julie is so responsive and efficient, the customer experience has been superb. Any question on the book keeping or admin side, no matter how trivial or small, has been answered immediately, we simply cannot fault the team's helpfulness. Thanks for all the hard work and excellent support!"

I have complete confidence in them to manage my annual tax returns and they really understand the complexities of working both as a salaried GP and a locum. It takes all of the complications away to have Honey Barrett prepare my accounts."

Katie - GP - General Practitioner locum

"I first used Liz Densley and the team at Honey Barrett in 2009 - this is after I stopped being a GP partner and when I started doing locum work and a variety of employed and freelance roles. Nothing is ever too much for Liz and her team. They always deliver in good time and spot things I would never have noticed. Superb professional, friendly and top quality service - they understand the financial issues and needs of doctors and the complexities of the NHS and freelance work. They have always looked after me and I cannot fault them."

Chris - GP - General Practitioner locum

"Honey Barrett has completed our accounts for several years, we have always found them to be so helpful, no question is too trivial, everything is fully explained.

I originally had another accountants arrange my accounts and when they mentioned they were closing down and was going to move their clients over to Honey Barrett I was slightly concerned and was a bit nervous about the change. Since the move I have been very happy. The Honey Barrett team have been very helpful throughout the past few months and have always been there to answers any questions I have had. They are very professional and are always there to help. I would like to thank Honey Barrett once again for going above and beyond my expectations."

"I have been with Honey Barrett for many years now and they have provided me with invaluable financial advice for the many companies I am associated with. A recent crisis which involved the loss of key staff through no fault of mine, from one company, making the company unable to function properly, was avoided because of Honey Barrett's experience in the areas we were having problems , the high quality advice they gave from each of their departments that needed to be involved, got us back on track quickly and efficiently, that company is working well again thanks to Paul and his team.  I would highly recommend them for their professional service and expertise and would be happy to recommend them to other businesses.
