We run our firm like a business, just like our clients do, yes we are accountants but we want to be successful, have great careers, enjoy our work and build a great business, and like other businesses there comes a time where it feels right to freshen things up.
We recently received investment from Cow Corner, a local investment firm, to help us with the next chapter of our firms long history and we feel now is good time for a refresh. As part of that refresh we are changing our name from Hilton Sharp & Clarke to Galloways. There’s no great logic behind Galloways, we just liked it.
Whilst we are having some fun building a new website and choosing colours for our new logo we recognise that if we are to continue to be a successful business, our clients need to continue being our number one priority and therefore we are restricting the number of changes to ensure there is limited impact on you.
The changes we are in the process of making in the next few weeks are:
• Our trading name will be changing from Hilton Sharp & Clarke to Galloways;
• The legal entity with which you engage will be changing its name from either Hilton Sharp & Clarke Limited to Galloways Accounting Limited or Hilton Sharp & Clarke (Audit) Limited to Galloways Accounting (Audit) Limited. All existing engagements will remain unaffected. All new engagements will be with the new entity name. Our company numbers and therefore the legal entity will remain unchanged;
• Our website www.hsc.uk.net will be replaced by a new website www.wearegalloways.com with you simply being redirected to the new website if you continue using our old web address; and
• Our email addresses will be changing but you can still use our old ones well into 2020 with you simply receiving a reply from our new email address which will have the following format: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All other details such as your main point of contact, addresses, bank details etc. will remain unchanged.
We’ve got some exciting things planned over the next few weeks and years to come and so if you are interested to find out more give us a call, send us an email, visit the website or simply keep an eye out for us in and around Sussex.

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
