We do the numbers to help your business grow

Bournemouth Accountant


MLW Accountants provides accounting services to small businesses and sole traders. I have over 20 years experience working in finance and am a fully qualified Chartered Certified Accountant currently licenced by the Association of Accounting Technicians.  Having worked in Practice and as a Finance Director in Industry I can appreciate the day to day requirements of running a successful business.

I like most business owners am passionate about what I do but appreciate that not everyone is passionate about keeping their books and records up to date or dealing with HMRC over their VAT!

A trustworthy client focussed approach means that I can work with you to make your business more efficient, working closely with you to ensure I fully understand your business and where you want to take them in the future.

I aim to ensure that your numbers allow you to monitor your business and you can use them as a tool for growth rather than just for compliance.

Whether you have a shoe box of receipts or a beautifully controlled cloud accounting system I can help with your accounting requirements.
