Spotlight on Hayes Parsons Insurance Brokers

Solid technical expertise and smart relationships underpin our approach at Corrigan. It's one of the reasons clients choose us and why they stay. Hayes Parsons are the prime example, a company that we helped through a pivotal transition and who we continue to support.

We were approached in 2013 by Hayes Parsons, now one of the South West's largest independent insurance brokers, when the company was in the process of changing hands. Giving clients the knowledge and confidence, as well as the expert backing, to grow their business is one of the pleasures of the work we do.


With Hayes Parsons, we were there from the start of the negotiations, exploring the options as they resolve a succession issue, working alongside the founding directors and the incoming managing director. In facilitating a successful buyout, our support included reviewing financial projections to assess the viability of the offer, as well as tax and financial compliance advice.

The company now has its own part-time financial director who we continue to work alongside providing the benefit of our insights and experiences from our long-standing connections. We act as an adviser to the board on tax and financial matters, conduct their Companies Act audit of the accounts, a client money audit and deal with annual tax compliance requirements.
