We believe that it’s really important that all businesses are active in their local community. By this we mean promoting and purchasing from local businesses, shopping locally, and supporting local charities and initiatives that benefit the community. Why? Well, from our point of view it’s because we get so much from being part of our community. We love it and relish the interaction with others nearby.
Over the years, we’ve discovered that when our community is thriving, people feel good – and are likely to feel confident to spend – which helps our clients and strengthens our business relationship. And it boosts our reputation of being fantastic human beings who are great to do business with.
Support and shop local… but why?
In short, supporting local business is good for our business – and it makes us feel great. Win/Win.
HB Accountants are doing their bit both before lockdown and in the aftermath of Covid19. We have always used Hoddesdon High Street for our retail excursions and coffees with colleagues and clients. Did you know that we’re an active member of the local Hoddesdon BID team too? And that we actively recommend local businesses to our clients in need of their services? It’s how we’ve built our reputation, how we’ve won new business – and how we’ve helped many of our clients grow their businesses too.

We’d love to hear from you if you have ideas about any other ways we can support our local area. And If you would like to come and chat to your “local” accountants (i.e. us) do get in touch and we can go for a coffee in Hoddesdon and support local together!
