Norris & Associates/Holland Avenue Tax

Norris & Associates offers small to mid-sized businesses a full range of financial consulting. Accounting services are provided by Robert L Norris, CPA.

Robert L. Norris, CPA, MBA, has lived in Houston his entire life and has worked in finance and accounting since graduating from Abilene Christian University in 1981. After leaving the corporate world in 2009, Mr. Norris acquired Holland Avenue Tax, a local bookkeeping and tax practice with a 30-year history in Houston, Texas. He renamed the business Norris and Associates, Financial Advisor Services. The practice focuses on offering small to mid-sized businesses a full range of audit, accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, tax service, and financial consulting. Our clients are primarily local businesses and individuals that can benefit from the expertise of a finance team but are not large enough to justify the expense of a full-time CFO. Our goal is to provide a professional, cost-effective turn-key financial solution to these clients. SAVE YOURSELF TIME AND MONEY

Even if you’re an organized person by nature, you can still benefit by hiring Norris and Associates to help you manage your finances. When you hire Norris and Associates, you’ll free up much of your own time while an experienced professional efficiently works to keep track of your finances. In most cases, Norris and Associates will be able to recommend tools and tactics to help you save money and reduce your tax burden. "Norris and Associates is a Financial Advisory Services company and is not a licensed CPA firm. Any and all accounting, audit and attest services required by Norris and Associates clients will be performed by Robert L Norris CPA, an affiliated CPA firm registered and licensed in the state of Texas."
