About us

Cocktails on the beach

Peter Howard-Jones Ltd is a firm of Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors based in Cambridge.

We approach the audit requirement from a different, hopefully more helpful angle. We know that an audit can sometimes seem like an almighty upheaval for a business. You want to be sure that an audit won’t get in the way of your day-to-day operations.

Instead of shrugging off the inevitable disruption as a necessary evil, we work to minimise it before starting. We analyse your business, look for the risks and pressure points, and assess the likely burden on key staff.

The key to any successful audit is good communication and we work closely with you from the outset to define your objectives and give you a realistic timetable, highlighting important milestones. This results in a streamlined process for audit that only minimally disrupts your daily business activities.

During our audit, we will provide you with detailed feedback on your systems and controls, which will be tailored to your business and will add lasting value.

Our audit work is performed under International Standards on Auditing (ISA’s). Our approach includes a combination of tests of controls, substantive testing and analytical procedures. It is designed to focus on the key areas of your business, thus reducing any unnecessary testing.

We pride ourselves on continuity of staff allowing our team to build up a greater understanding of your business year on year. Our specialist staff have a great deal of experience in auditing UK and international businesses across a wide range of sectors.

Peter Howard-Jones Ltd was established in May 2009 and today, we continue to build on our enviable reputation for providing excellent advice and first class service to our business and personal clients alike. We have many clients in the local community and service businesses, small and large, across many sectors.

As well as general accountancy, audit and tax skills, we also have individual specialist skills which enables us to provide clients with a first class service as and when required. With our wealth of experience we pride ourselves on delivering an unparalleled service to all clients, whatever their size or sector.
