Looking for Hackney Accountants? We are a firm of Chartered Certified Accountants, based in Hackney, London. We are committed to providing a first-class service tailored to the individual needs of each client .



Redmond Donnelly is a Fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants.


From the 1980s to 2006 he was a partner in a small city firm of accountants doing general Audit, Accountancy and Tax work, but with a leaning to the Television Production Industry.

During these years he was a keen Territorial Soldier, a member of the Parachute Regiment and latterly the Honourable Artillery Company.

Whilst not training as a soldier he was a keen yachtsman winning the RORC class 3 season in 1993 and cruising the French coast.


In 2006 with his wife Liz and 2-year-old son Freddie he set of on the family boat to explore the world, sailing down the European cost, cruising the Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic and cruising the Americas from Virginia in the North to Columbia in the South and visiting many of the countries and Islands along the way.

The pressing need for his son to go to school resulted in him sailing the yacht home in 2013.

Fortunately he had maintained his professional qualifications and now has a small thriving part time practice concentrating on the areas he most enjoys. He’s renowned hackney accountant and have been helping local businesses and individuals, seeking accounting services in Hackney.

What we do?

Business Accounts

We prepare both Limited company and Sole trader accounts. Company accounts are essential for statutory purposes but both Sole Trader and Company accounts also provide timely information for management purposes. They can provide a basis for ongoing management accounts and cash flow forecasts.

Company tax returns

These are a follow on from Company accounts and need to be filed within 12 months of the period end.

Self-assessment Tax returns

A natural follow on from the sole trader accounts, or on their own.

Tax advice

Timely tax advice helps to reduce the overall tax liability and avoid penalties. It is essential to aid tax planning and prevent unnecessary tax liabilities.

Book keeping and VAT

We can assist our clients with monthly or quarterly bookkeeping and this greatly helps with the preparation of VAT returns and annual accounts. With the rapid arrival of HMRC’s Making Tax Digital we can assist in setting up the necessary software to be compliant.

Business plans & Cash flow forecasts

Planning helps the business to run smoothly and is essential if negotiations with banks and investors are required.


With the requirement for regular returns to HMRC it is essential to ensure that payrolls are done on time. We can assist with the preparation of monthly payrolls.


CIS returns are required monthly and penalties can be expensive if these are not done.

Company Secretarial services

We can electronically file accounts and assist with the completion of Companies House Confirmation Statements.
