We have been trading for 8 years as a touristic café in Wales, and have been using Holden Associates for accountancy and payroll services the whole time. We have found both Jason and Nicola to have very high standards and their customer service to be second to none. They have been always been very helpful and generous with their advice. In a nutshell, we have no hesitation in recommending Holden Associates to anyone. A Lewis & B Garcia, The Old Barn Café, Lake Vyrnwy

I have known and worked with Jason since 1999. Jason is more than a mere accountant. He takes a thorough Business Adviser role and has a hands on approach to looking after his clients affairs. His expertise and sense of humour are what sets him apart from other accountants.

Jason has been looking after my accounts for over five years now and I am so pleased that I took on the advice from a colleague who had been very happy with Jason's accountancy work for many years. My previous accountant grew to become a bigger company, and due to this change, I had to deal with numerous staff who did not really understand my work. With lack of communication and technology within that company, they missed the submission due dates and even then, they continued to raise their fees. I am very grateful that Jason and his staff understand what I do, are very helpful in every way, sends me reminder emails (!) and the thought that I can contact them and ask questions, even on weekends, are a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend Holden Associates.

Jason has proved to be an invaluable asset to both myself and my company G1-di Ltd.(Global 1 - Digital Insight) I find Jason to be very professional in his approach and he has a great deal of very relevant and useful knowledge and experience which he is happy to share. I particularly like his open and warm personality and the fact that he always makes time to listen and to provide appropriate advice. I'm pleased to be able to provide Jason with a recommendation his skills and experience would be equally relevant and beneficial to any new start up business or any well established business.

Jason is more than our Accountant, he is a Business Partner who's advice and guidance is first class. What we look for in an Accountant is someone who is commercially focused with a real desire to help us succeed. Jason demonstrates all of these qualities and more. As a business we need an objective ear (not just an eye on the figures) to help us see the things we don't necessarily want to see and Jason and the team are very good at giving us the guidance to think beyond today and plan for tomorrow. If you are looking for an Accountant that stands by your side, who you can be totally honest with, then Jason and Holden Associates are for you.

Holden Associates have been handling our accounts since 2008. Jason & the team have been a breath of fresh air after being burnt in the past by other "accountants" (term used very loosely!) Having Jason around means that I can concentrate on running my business safe in the knowledge that the accountancy matters will be handled well and efficiently. In addition, I know he's at the end of a phone any time I need him for advice on anything business related which even if he cannot provide directly, he can put me in touch with someone who can.
C James, Preston, Lancashire
My dealings with Holden Associates have always been professional and added value to my business since 2009. Jason's advice and timely manner has meant that we always know what to expect next and can manage our cash flow accordingly.

Starting-up a business is not easy. One wrong decision or one wrong piece of advice can be devastating. On the other hand, working with people you can trust and who have an interest in your business doing well, builds the confidence for you to succeed. That is where Holden Associates come in. Clear direction, clear advice, encouragement and a practical understanding of your business makes the difference.

Holden's online accounting system gives a daily view of exactly where your business is and keeps you in control. No nasty surprises and proactive advice that allows you to concentrate on what you are good at....that's Holden Associates.

In fact, our first two years in business has seen us open two companies, expand our services and grow in-line with an ambitious budget. One of the main reasons for this confident start in corporate life, is having Holden Associates alongside us since 2005.

We were originally first introduced to Jason when he worked in Leeds at our previous accountants. He was the first accountant we had ever met who had a friendly face and wasn't all doom and gloom. He also explained and advised in plain English so that even we could understand.

We were greatly dismayed when Jason left the firm, however, we did not know that he was starting out alone. We managed to stay with the city centre firm for one year but the personal service was shocking to say the least, and we were therefore greatly relieved and happy when we made contact with Jason again in 2005.

We are always assured of a personal and friendly service whether it be for straight forward accounts or advice on other matters. The northern sense of humour is evident and greatly welcomed, furthermore, we can state categorically that we are very pleased and proud to be linked with Holden Associates.

A & A Riddoch, Leeds, West Yorkshire
We have been with Holden Associates since 2004 and have known Jason a lot longer. Unlike the big practices you know who you are talking to and advice does not come with a price tag and an hourly rate. Can we say more.

Jason, Nicola and Erika are not just our accountants, they are so much more! With a 20 plus year history they have become good friends. They will take a great interest in your company imparting wise counsel when asked and providing great support. Our company Harper and Pye, honestly would not still be trading without them in these difficult times and they are very proactive. I can not thank them enough for all the support they have given, and recommend them thoroughly.
J Harper, Cleveleys, Lancashire
Erika has advised me on all manner of tax issues over the last 10 years and she has always impressed with her tenacity, ability and integrity. I would recommend Erika highly to anyone requiring expert advice in this area.

We have been clients of Holden Associates since 1996.

Jason’s knowledge and advice about all financial matters has been critical in the development of our company. He was very supportive of our plans to become a Limited Company and executed our transition with his usual seamless ease. Jason has not only been supportive and professional in giving help and advice, but we look upon him as a friend and always feel we have someone we can approach for help and advice.

We have always found the service they offer to be friendly, helpful and most of all professional. Whether it is in depth tax advise or bookkeeping queries Jason and Nicola are quick to offer their help and advice.

G Cottam, Hesketh Bank. Preston
I became a client of Holden Associates in 2004 as I was unhappy with my previous accountants’ standard of care. Since I’ve been with Jason he has helped my small business get back on track and due to his help and advice I now feel far more informed as to the best way forward for my company.
S Frankish, Hull, East Yorkshire
Jason and Nicola have helped save our company thousands in taxes over the past years. I am so grateful for their services that I am going to use them in my new venture of property rental. Simply a great service.
