Experience isn't everything, but it certainly helps. We are well aware that business works in a very different social and economic environment than in the past, but you can be sure that we are firmly part of the digital age and the "fintech" world.

We also appreciate that you might not be in business, but just need to be assured that you are doing the right thing with your income – we will recognise what you need and make sure you are getting the support that's right for you.

SUPPORT

To us, support isn't about online forms and chat boxes (though they are useful), but it's about being available and being a real person on the end of the phone or sitting opposite you.

MGA has a few old shoulders and few young guns - as well as the Firm of the Future's UK's top business advisors and accountants behind it. So whatever the concern or requirement, we will be able to sort it out.

Take a look at the packages we can offer, and let's discuss them and tailor it to suit your needs exactly, and when you need to change your service level – we're flexible – we will change it over to whatever suits.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s a selection of comments from our current clients.

Highly recommend

MGA have been my Accountants from day one. They set up my Limited Company and have guided me through the first year of my trading. They oversee everything to keep me compliant with Companies House and HMRC, they process my payroll and make sure I pay what is due by the required date. Whenever I need them they always answer my emails within a few hours. I would highly recommend them to all.

Happy Client for over 10 years

My business and I have been looked after by MGA for over 10 years. I run a local restaurant and they look after every aspect of the day to day administration. They do my payroll and make sure I make the correct payments to HMRC, they advised me when I exceeded the VAT threshold and they now complete and file my VAT returns by the new Making Tax Digital software. All I have to do is let them have the ‘z’ readings from my till on a monthly basis and take a photograph of every invoice that I pay, however small and they compile all the information. They are lovely people too. I sometimes find the documents that I receive from HMRC difficult to understand and they are always there to help me. I have introduced many of my colleagues to MGA for help and they love the service they get as well.

Great Help

I have been with MGA for over 12 years now and over that time they have helped me steer and grow my business. I now own the premises I operate from having had the guidance and help needed to raise the finance for the acquisition. They are always on the end of a phone or email to answer any questions so I don’t make a bad decision or fall foul of the HMRC laws.

Recently they have helped me with the transition to Making a Digital and now my book keeping is reduced to taking photos of my receipts on my phone on an APP supplied by them and they do the rest. On a day to day basis I can see what is in my bank, what is due to come in and go out, providing me with real time information on which to base decisions.

I would recommend giving them a call, let them help you like they have helped me.
