The Brief

Pharus Training Ltd. needed support with their financial management to gain clarity and growth.

They asked us to advise on tax and provide strategies for the future.

The Delivery

We liaised over a number of 1-1 consultations, working together on their books and tax returns and highlighting areas where there was room for greater efficiencies.

The Impact

“Your efficiency has had a profound impact on my business. With your guidance, I have been able to streamline my financial processes, reduce costs, and maximise profits. Your advice on tax planning and financial strategies has also been invaluable, resulting in significant savings for my business.

The professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail has also been outstanding. Building a strong sense of confidence in the financial health of my business, and I’m grateful for the peace of mind that MSG Accountancy has provided.

In summary, working with you has been a game-changer for my business, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you so much for your exceptional service and expertise!”

“Working with Maria and her team at MSG Accountancy has been an absolute breath of fresh air. They truly care about ensuring that best practice is being delivered, providing timely and transparent support with words of encouragement along the way.

I would highly recommend working with MSG Accountancy. Efficient, confident and empowering are just a few words worth mentioning.”

The Sole Trader

absolute world services

The Brief

Freelance Copywriter, Katharine Matthews, wanted a hand with her first self-assessment for her business, The Absolute Word.

She needed support clarifying the questions and ensuring she’d got her numbers right so that she could submit it in confidence.

The Delivery

We worked through an initial 1-1 consultation, after which she brought us in to complete the full self-assessment for her. We then created a bespoke package for her monthly accounts, moved her online to FreeAgent and provided bookkeeping support, completing her second self-assessment at the end of the tax year. As her business scaled, we adapted her package to meet her goals efficiently and provided advice and strategy for further growth.

The Impact

“Being able to outsource my bookkeeping to someone I trust with absolute confidence has taken a huge weight off my mind. As a sole trader, spinning plates and wearing all the hats can get pretty stressful – so knowing my finances were being well looked after was a massive relief.

I’ve been able to save a lot of admin time by moving to FreeAgent, meaning I can focus on my clients and my own growth more. I get updates in real time, and have a clear grasp of my numbers – so I know what I can invest, and when.

Since working with Maria and her team, I’ve now launched a second business – which, of course, MSG Accountancy looks after too.”

“One of the best things about working with Maria is how completely at ease she makes you feel – there’s never any sense of doubt or judgement when I want to check something. She’s always on hand with helpful advice, and gently keeps me on the right track when I forget!

I’m so pleased I found her – I’m not sure my businesses would be where they are if I hadn’t.”

Our Business Advisory Services

the events hub services

The Brief

Founder and Director of The Events Hub, Ruby Sweeney, approached us needing clarity on her numbers to enable her to take her business to the next level.

The Delivery

We devised a bespoke package for The Events Hub based on their goals, and set up monthly meetings to focus on a 90-day Path to Profit business plan. Through these we supported Ruby in packaging her offerings, honing her pricing and maximizing profitability, as well as troubleshooting and advising on other challenges the business was facing.

The Impact

“After being in business for 12 years and starting to work with Maria after just over 11 of them, she’s made a big impact. As a creative and big ideas person, working with numbers doesn’t come naturally to me – looking at P&Ls and cash flows was enough to make me run in the opposite direction!

The journey so far – I’ve come to a place of understanding, enjoying and getting excited by the numbers.

When there’s a pain point or challenge to address, Maria is there to work through them with me in a non-judgmental and solutions-minded approach. She’s full of the best ideas, suggestions and challenges, and she pushes me to prepare myself for growth.”

Maria makes sustaining and growing a business fun and empowering. Her enthusiasm and energy, and knowledge and interpretation of the numbers is very rare. She’s an adviser, champion, and business friend rolled into one.

I try to imagine what it would be like working without Maria’s invaluable advice and support – and there’s no such thing!”
