Roy and Louise Wright, owner of Farrago in Heathfield

I have known Roy and Holland Harper for many years as they used to look after my parents’ business. He is always really helpful and on the end of the phone if I need advice. We’ve moved premises several times and Roy has helped with this as well as the ups and downs of the recession. Our relationship works well. I look after the day-to-day finance and my VAT and Roy produces my end of year accounts. To be honest I would never look elsewhere for an accountant and I have recommended Holland Harper countless times.

Roy andChris and James Parker, Parker & Son

We have been a client of Holland Harper from their outset. Roy and his team have always been excellent with the service and knowledge they provide, keeping us up to date with all relevant information and regulations regarding our tax affairs. We have to say they have played a big part in the progress and success of our business which continues to grow.

We would never think to change accountants. Holland Harper have always been there for us and we can always get through to Roy, if the need arises and he always gets back to us quickly whether it’s a business or personal matter.

Roy and Olivier Choron CEO and Founder

I have been working with Roy since 2004 initially as a self-assessment client and a self-employed consultant. Since then my business has changed, grown and split. What started as a one-man band in my spare bedroom to six people in that room has grown to 17 staff based in Battle.

We outsource all the accounting elements of our business to Holland Harper including book keeping, tax returns, payroll and management accounts as well as my personal tax return. Roy and his team offer an impeccable service. The work is always done on time and all the pain of accounting has been taken away which makes me very happy. Any questions I have are always responded to quickly and efficiently.

The Biomedical team

Roy was recommended to me and I have been working with him since 1996 when my business was just starting.

Roy’s team looks after my payroll, taxation and accounts and is supporting us through pensions auto enrolment. Roy always provides excellent advice and is a very safe pair of hands.

A real strongpoint with Holland Harper is availability and being able to speak with the right person at the right time. When you call you always receive a professional welcome and the staff recognise who you are. The service is personalised and the advice is always timely and helpful.

Very importantly, I know Roy understands the financial aspects of my business and has been very supportive as BioMedical has grown through referral and reputation and our services have expanded. I have no hesitation in recommending Roy and his team at Holland Harper.

Roy and Kate Hardy – Village Life

I have worked with Roy since I started trading as a retailer 13 years ago. He is professional and very knowledgeable but never intimidating like some accountants. Roy gently points me in the right direction without ever giving me the feeling that I am being told off.

Over 13 years my business has changed dramatically and the shop has doubled in size during which time Roy has given me gentle guidance. Roy is always happy to give advice and is very approachable. The service I receive from all the staff at Holland Harper is excellent and they are all loyal and friendly. Everything is taken care of quickly and well. I pop in and out of the offices in Battle High Street frequently and I find the location really convenient.

Battersby's Fish and Chips

We at Battersby's Fish and Chips in St Leonards-on Sea have been trading successfully for 18 years. During this time we have employed the services of accountants, one large organisation and one small. Neither was the ideal fit - either too impersonal or too small to offer the range of services that we required.

On meeting Roy Holland it was clear that his was an organisation that would fit our needs. We were not disappointed. We have now been with Holland Harper for many  years.  Roy and his team are professional, easily approachable and offer speedy and confident answers to questions. The comprehensive range of services offered by Holland Harper fits perfectly with our needs. Book-keeping/payroll/company tax and VAT/personal tax are all efficiently handled under one roof.

We would not hesitate to recommend Holland Harper to those who seek high standard accountancy services.

We have worked with Roy and his team and Holland Harper for the last seven years and can only describe the service as flawless. If we have any questions or need advice Roy is always available or returns our calls promptly. All of the staff are extremely helpful and professional. We thoroughly recommend Roy and to everyone.

Fancy Pants

I wanted to go to someone local to us. Roy was the first person to respond to my initial enquiry. He is very easy to talk to and incredibly helpful. We have owned Fancy Pants for two and a half years and Roy has been very helpful during that time. He is always quick to respond to questions whatever they are and never makes me feel like I should know the answer.

We’ve referred our son Elliot Crawford who is a YouTube star to Roy and he is now a client. Elliot is new to being self employed and Roy is equally good at talking to a 19 year old as he is to someone older like me.

Raymond and Clive

I have used Holland Harper for many years and can’t fault the service. During that time my business has grown steadily which wouldn’t have happened without a great deal of support from Roy and his team. I am always recommending Roy to people I know as he is a pleasure to work with and always exceeds my expectations.


We have been clients of Holland Harper for more than 10 years. We are very happy with the service. Roy is very accommodating in terms of arranging meetings at convenient times to us which, being a very busy veterinary practice, is very helpful. The reception staff are very friendly and the team is very prompt at returning messages.
