Working With Clients to Meet Their Long-Term Goals

Our Core Values

Welcome to the online presence of Holden Associates, we are a family run firm of Qualified Accountants, Business and Taxation Consultants, but then you know that, but do you realise that we are just like you, yes that’s right, we are running a business too, it just happens to be an accountancy business.


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.
