What Our Clients Say

Our clients tell us that Kirk Newsholme people are straight-talking and to the point. So here’s a simple truth: nearly every firm of accountants will tell you their approach is different.

We believe ours really is. But we think it should be the people who matter who tell you why, so here are some of our clients’ comments on us. They explain what we’re all about better than we can.

“Since moving to KN from an international firm in 2009 we have made significant, sustained cost savings. The quality of their staff’s technical knowledge has impressed us which is very important as an AIM listed company. The continuity of staff combined with partner involvement, has made us feel more involved in the process and we are very happy with our decision in selecting KN.”

Nicholas Braime, Chairman and Managing Director,
T.F. & J.H. Braime (Holdings) P.L.C.

“We have often thought that in the years since we regained control of Theakstons in 2003, the best decision we ever made was to secure the services of Kirk Newsholme. They are an outstanding firm of Chartered Accountants staffed by outstanding individuals.”

Simon Theakston, Executive Director,
T & R Theakston Limited

“We have been extremely impressed with the proactive approach taken by Kirk Newsholme during the course of our annual audit process. They have been helpful and innovative in terms of making positive suggestions for improving processes and gaining the greatest levels of efficiency. We feel that they have gone well beyond the basic remit of an annual audit and have provided sound advice based on having taken a very real interest in the workings of our business.”

Elaine Holmes, Joint Managing Director,
Deehurst Limited t/as Traveleads

“We have been with KN for over a decade now, having previously been with one of the big 4. Our experience with KN has been excellent, all the required expertise with a personal touch.”

Richard Thomson, Managing Director,
Thomson Limited

“We moved to KN back in 1999 from a national firm. We have enjoyed a first class relationship with them and have benefitted from invariably high standards of service throughout. One of the most pleasing aspects about our work together has been the strong continuity of personnel – with each contact we build on previous progress, rather than needing to reiterate needs or explain historical issues.”

Mark Ridgway, Managing Director,
Group Rhodes

“Having previously been with a large national accountancy practice, we felt our company needed a more personal input. Kirk Newsholme has the unique ability to provide the professional expertise of a multinational alongside the close personal attention of an independent”

Joanne Martin, Director,
Leeds Fleet Services Limited
