We are based in Bury St Edmunds and and we have clients throughout East Anglia including Cambridge, Kings Lynn, Ipswich, Colchester and Sudbury. Remote links allow us to service clients further afield and in some cases overseas.

We like to think our clients find us easy to talk to and our recruitment policy has always been to find and train excellent staff who have the ability to communicate, without jargon, to clients.

  • Are you looking for an accountant in the Bury St Edmunds area?

  • Would you like a more commercial approach to your accountancy needs?

  • Are you newly self-employed or looking to set up a new limited company?

  • Have the Inland Revenue opened up an investigation into your tax affairs and you feel you need some expert help?

  • Have you been surprised by a larger accountancy bill than expected?

You may relate to one or more of the above situations, and feel you need some expert advice from accountants who care about your business.

Hodson Lewis has been around for 30 years and was founded on the realisation that there was a demand for a practice offering sound commercial and accountancy advice, delivered without jargon and tailored to the needs of small and medium sized businesses.

30 years on, we are just as keen to help businesses to grow and develop. Our vision is to help your business with sound commercial advice, not just dealing with the numbers.

Our team of staff have come from many business backgrounds, not just accountancy, so we have the skills to deal with a wide variety of clients, and welcome the very small tax return client as well as larger businesses.


  • Save tax - We are committed to saving you as much tax as possible. When we prepare accounts  we are always looking at ways we can save you tax, all as part of the process.

  • Competitive rates and fixed fee option - We have always strived to provide value for money. We can offer you a fixed fee, based on the work you have instructed us to undertake. The fee for any additional work you may ask us to carry out will be agreed with you before work commences. Whilst we firmly believe that sound tax and business advice is relevant for all businesses whatever the sector or profession, we have  built up  knowledge and expertise in the healthcare sector which we can pass on to new and existing clients who operate in this area.

  • Pharmacy & Healthcare - We offer a service aimed at Healthcare Professionals, with an initial consultation to explore ways in which your practice can operate more profitably. Following this meeting we will design a user friendly management information system, which generates monthly or quarterly reports  which will  provide the tools to help us to achieve this. We, of course, offer a complete package of  year end accounts, tax returns and tax advice to ensure you are up to date with all your tax and accounting affairs
