To answer the first question that usually crops up – yes, we are a husband and wife team!
Stage 1: Exams, exams, exams.
Stage 2: Long hours, experience, promotion. Long hours, experience, promotion. Long hours, experience, promotion.
Stage 3: Start a family - realise things need to change!
Having worked in respected firms of all sizes, we know and love the buzz of a well-functioning office. It was only when we had our first son, Theo, that we realised for us there was far more to life than working 80+ hour weeks. That is the main reason why we started Heydon Innovation.
We work hard, advise on interesting and technically challenging projects, and help innovative companies claim millions of pounds of R&D tax relief. However, we also now have enough time and energy to have fun as a family.
We strongly believe that people do their best work when they are alert, happy and enthused.
Service excellence is our passion and we enjoy working in an environment where we can provide this without compromise or distraction. So rather than focusing on ambitious growth targets, we have established a business focussed entirely on this excellent service.
We tend to shun the corporate approach that people generally expect from accountants and tax advisers. That is just not who we are! Heydon Innovation is an R&D tax relief consultancy that offers a truly excellent service and a down-to-earth approach.
