We held a great networking meeting at Nizels Golf and Country Club on Wednesday where we welcomed over 80 members and guests to  join in with our vibrant networking. The meeting was kindly sponsored by members and Business Partners Hilden Park Accountants.  Andrew Appleton, one of the Directors talked to the group about his organisation, and shared some amazing customer testimonials with us. 

Andrew was pleased to see so many familiar faces, and some new members and first time networkers with the Chamber, providing a room full of great business connections from a cross section of business sectors. Hilden Park are Xero Accounting Gold Partners and are able to support businesses in making the transition to an automated accounting package. To support Chamber Members Andrew and the Hilden Park Team are offering a fantastic package of a 12 month free Xero subscription. This could save businesses hundreds of pounds per year depending on your company size and could even pay for your Chamber membership!

Hilden Park Accountants are also extending an invitation to a Selling Your Business and Xero Seminar on Monday 25th November at Tonbridge Old Fire Station. This is suitable for anyone considering selling their company now or in the future, and will also provide an overview to the Xero accounting package.  Please get in touch with ebull@hildenparkaccountants.co.uk to register.
