About Us

Bell Howley began in 2008 as a tax consultancy firm providing advisory services to owner managed businesses, high net worth individuals and independent firms of accountants.

Due to demand from clients and the ever-changing world of taxation, we opened our Geneva office on 2014. In 2016 we opened our Dublin office and in late 2018, Dubai, to offer additional services to our UK and growing international ex-pat client base.

2019 was another exceptional year for the firm, with two new additions to the partnership team, further strengthening the firms client offering. The firm was also nominated for the SME News Finance Awards 2019 and was invited to contribute as an expert, to the 2020/2021 edition of The Parliamentary Review.

The year was also one of rationalisation, with the decision to concentrate resources on the London and Dublin offices, giving the firm a solid footing in both the UK and mainland Europe; post Brexit.

Now as a multi-disciplined practice providing tax, legal, accountancy and financial services, we are well placed to cater for all our client’s business and private needs.

Our clients benefit from having a dedicated point of contact. We strive to differentiate ourselves from other firms by providing a true partner-led service.

“I’ve known Simon as a professional advisor and friend for more than 15 years. During this time his confident, sound advice, clearly based on his deep understanding of tax and business, has benefited me personally and professionally. The team he continues to build around him at Bell Howley are in the same mould – efficient, flexible, and above all, friendly.”

Edmund White - Director, Corporate Wizards Ltd

“I engaged Bell Howley whilst operating as a sole trader. Since then, Bell Howley has helped me to restructure and incorporate my business, dealing with Companies House and all relevant HMRC departments. I am now assigned to one account manager who importantly understands my business and deals with my ongoing queries and monthly management accounts. I find the entire process so simple to manage given the automated system and enjoy accessing my management accounts electronically in real time. Simon is always on hand to give strategic advice as and when needed, so feel very secure in the knowledge that the firm has my best interests in mind.”

Ofer Zilkha, Coralia Concierge

“Bell Howley have always been my “go to” first contact point for all the business support my company needs.

Friendly and professional are the best words to describe them, no question is too much and their advice and guidance has always provided me with my comfort blanket allowing my focus to remain on my customers. Their automated and up to date accounting systems make interaction much easier but there is always someone available by email or phone.

I chose well with Bell Howley…..”

Paul Chambers - Director, 4C Consultancy Ltd

“My knowledge and experience of Bell Howley pre-dates their 2008 launch. Since 2003, Simon Howley, was the Senior Tax Advisor for my Promotional & Marketing business, and before the setting up of his boutique practice, was instrumental in the introduction of Tax efficient strategies.

I have continued to benefit from his extensive knowledge of Taxation under the Bell Howley umbrella for both my private tax affairs and investment businesses. It has not stopped there, as from the lateral growth of the Bell Howley team, other important areas of expertise have been brought to my table.

While the old saying ‘one stop shop’ has to some degree diminished over the years, having a group of diverse professionals with their own individual specialities, allows for a more informed approach to the complexities in today’s minefield of Taxation – Bell Howley in my mind has ticked that box!”

Peter Hurst

“I have been a client of Simon Howley’s for nearly 20 years and have found his advice to be helpful, wide ranging and clear sighted on UK and international matters – mainly personal taxation and small business matters.

I am always impressed at how responsive he is even on minor issues. As a result I have and shall continue to recommend his services.”
