About us

Watson Associates are a committed team of financial professionals.

We share the same enthusiasm for the success of your business as your own. Who are we? Watson Associates, under various guises, has had a presence in East Sussex now since 1957. Whilst originally a small provincial practice mainly servicing the local farming and business community of Hailsham and its immediate area the company has grown and developed substantially over the last 20 years to become one of the leading independent accountancy, taxation and business advisory firms in Sussex. We have a dedicated professional team that supports all financial aspects of moving or managing your business in the cloud using Xero. We offer tailored services for your specific requirements, including Xero setup and training.

Please note, Xero doesn't guarantee the service of any one advisor

We don’t review advisor listings and we don’t recommend or guarantee the service provided by any one advisor, so make sure you check them out yourself and get comfortable with them yourself.

Xero certification means that some or all team members have completed courses and been assessed by Xero as proficient in the use of the Xero application.

Xero specialisation means that some or all team members have completed several short learning modules to develop skills in that area.

Xero doesn’t assess any individual advisor’s or firm’s proficiency as an accountant, bookkeeper or financial advisor. And Xero certified advisors and advisors with industry or bank specialisations are not employees of Xero.
