Keir Singleton
Director
Keir is Harwood Hutton’s youngest director. He joined us in 2002 as a trainee accountant and hasn’t looked back.

Today, he manages an interesting portfolio of clients, from a clutch of local property specialists through to a multi-national IT giant listed on the US Stock Exchange where the work extends to acquisitions and due diligence.

The combination of outstanding technical knowledge, great listening skills and engaging manner has won him many plaudits. “I’ve only ever lost one client – and they soon came back,” he says.

After completing a Mathematics degree at Oxford University, Keir showed a keen business instinct. He became a computer programmer, surfed the dot-com boom and wiped out his student debts.

Keir is hugely competitive and excels at what’s in front of him: He was in the National Youth Orchestra, playing flute, piano and guitar; played badminton at county level and swam for his club. He still plays squash and five-a-side football.

Keir likens his role to that of an orchestra conductor, seeing the big picture of a client’s business and calling on the virtuoso performers (our tax specialists) as and when required. “I reckon I need to know at least 90% of everything, and the breadth of knowledge is what my clients really value.”

Client Testimonials
  • I always get quick, clear and definitive responses from the Harwood Hutton tax team – commercial answers to commercial issues.

    Robin Berry – Morgan Management
  • Right from the outset Harwood Hutton gave us direction and great advice – and that advice has evolved over the years as we’ve grown. We’re both medium-sized companies providing a bespoke service – one furniture, one accountancy – and the relationship works.

    Andy McCarron, McCarron and Co
  • I’m deeply impressed with Harwood Hutton’s extensive knowledge of tax arrangements for residential and commercial property landlords.

    Qadeer Ahmed, MD, ABA Finance
  • They really took their time to understand what was important to us and our business and the expertise we required. Whoever we speak to at HH, we get the same fantastic response and technical input. It’s a real partnership.

    Edward Finch, group MD, MRIB insurance brokers
  • I have worked with the directors at Harwood Hutton on a number of mutual client matters over many years. The reassurance of their clear, commercial and focussed advice is one of the main reasons I regard this as one of my most valuable professional relationships.

    Frank Wessely, Partner, Quantuma LLP
  • Harwood Hutton never seem to rest on their laurels. They are always seeking out new avenues and ways to improve their offering. A very forward-thinking company with staff who are always well briefed and who approach each task with drive.

    Karl Austen, MD, Surefoot Communications
  • We have engaged Harwood Hutton in several areas of structuring, including VAT issues, decoupling an SPV from a group structure and HMRC clearance for a transaction. The team have exceeded all expectations by being proactive, measured and very thorough.

    Adam Fawsitt, Director, FHT Limited
  • We moved to Harwood Hutton as they delivered a succinct and professional proposal. If anything, we have been more impressed post-move. They are a fantastic company to work with. They do truly differentiate. They have the skills and capabilities of a mega firm but with a personal service.
