In Safe Hands
How can we know about you? Well, without seeming presumptuous … we really do know about you.
Holden Associates itself is an owner managed business, we also have to deal with ‘red tape’, we have to provide a valuable service to stay in business, we have to compete with competitors and engage in marketing and offer an increasing number of high quality services, so as you can see, we really are just like you, we are in business.
Like many in our current client base, you will have arrived at our website because you are looking for more than ‘bean counters’, you are looking for a professional and approachable firm of qualified accountants and business advisors who are always ready to listen, offer constructive advice that is relevant to you and follow up any concerns that arise to ensure that you can see the value in what we do for you.
As well as providing you with honest, valuable and relevant advice, we will also help you with the basics, such as getting your books and records into a more organised condition, which many find a great weight off their mind.
If you need more help with your books and records then we can help you look at outsourcing your ‘accounts department’ to us, which means you can do what you do best, concentrate on your customers and business.
You may be looking for an accountant to help improve your current business model, whether it is through informative business advice, cost saving solutions, marketing and sales strategies, tax planning advice, expert guidance on employment legislation or just plain old fashioned help and support, when and how you need it.

Our Core Values
It is hard to convey who we are on a website, after all you haven’t met us, you don’t know us, so, we all sat down and between us came up with what we consider our core values, the values that underpin our business and our approach, it goes without saying we are professionally qualified and technically capable, so what are our core values.
Our advisors and their skills aren’t just tried and tested; they’re trusted too. We’re technically competent, experienced and completely confidential when working with our clients.
We’re not about the corporate feel. We’re a warm, friendly, approachable team who pride ourselves on communicating in layman’s terms – no silly bamboozle, just simple business.
Our analytical skills are second to none; we certainly don’t take things at face value and in our industry, a keen eye for analysis can be the difference between standard assistance and excellent services.
Contrary to popular belief, accountants are humans too! We’re wholly empathetic and can relate to a variety of life and business experiences to provide an excellent, trusted service.
Our door is always open. There’s no question too complicated, and no job too big or small. We want our customers to feel totally comfortable when seeking help and guidance, and they do.
