Sobell Rhodes LLP is delighted to be sponsoring the SME Hertfordshire Business Awards for 2022.
We know how important awards are, having participated and won many awards ourselves.
They let our current customers know that they’ve made the right choice in doing business with us; they let potential customers know that we are a quality company; and lastly, they give our own people a great sense of pride in being part of an award-winning organisation.
Our core belief at Sobell Rhodes is that if we provide exceptional care and opportunities to our own people, they will provide exceptional care and value to our clients. In so doing, we are one of only three accounting firms in the country to have attained the Investors in People, Platinum Standard.
Sobell Rhodes LLP provides three main services:
Firstly, as Chartered Accountants we prepare and audit accounts of SMEs and ensure that their compliance matters are all properly taken care of, so they have peace of mind.
Secondly, as tax consultants we ensure that our SME clients don’t pay more tax than they need to and mandate that we will always save our clients more tax than our fees.
Thirdly, we are strategic business advisers, whereby we proactively help SMEs grow their businesses, increase their profits and achieve the business and personal goals of the owners.
We are fundamentally about helping SMEs become “Winners,” which is why we are delighted to support the SME Hertfordshire Business Awards.

The Hertfordshire Business Growth Show is a unique live event for small business owners across Hertfordshire to help them learn, connect and grow.
The not-for-profit initiative was created by a number of local entrepreneurs who shared a vision and passion to support local business owners, believed in giving back to the business community and wanted to support local charities and worthy causes too.
The inaugural event saw over 170 forward-thinking small business owners taking time out of their business to spend a day focusing on their growth through a series of Keynote Speakers, Workshops and Networking Sessions.
By using the knowledge and experience of local business leaders and experts, the event is designed to connect, inspire and educate Hertfordshire’s small business owners to gain new ideas to help steer their businesses to exciting new heights.
After the huge success of the inaugural show in 2023, the team are already working hard to make the 2024 event bigger and better to provide a really memorable event for Hertfordshire business owners. We hope to see you there – you can find out more at www.hertsbusinessshow.co.uk.
