MMG deliver a tailored approach to accounting, providing expert advice that adds real value to our clients’ finances. Dependability is at the heart of our culture. Our clients depend on us, and our committed team depend on each other to deliver an exceptional service.
We are proud of our roots, and we care about the community in which we live and work. MMG Chartered Accountants has been providing accountancy solutions to Scotland’s leading businesses for over 100-years. Change is inevitable, but our passion for providing a reliable, relationship-centred service has always been at the core of our business.
Our dedication to making our clients more successful has seen our business grow into one of Scotland’s leading chartered accountancy practices. With more than 500 years of combined experience, our devoted team is on hand to give you the excellence you deserve.
In only two years Peter McIntyre moved the business into position to buy out another local practice Drummond Dickson. This moment in our history saw our name become Dickson McIntyre as we moved the practice to Meadowside.
The ever expanding business soon outgrew its home at 30 Meadowside with more and more people joining the team. The growing firm moved to a larger office on Reform Street in the heart of the city and would call it home until 2006.
Another key moment in our history took place in 1927 when James R Gellatly (The G in MMG) set up his own accountancy practice in the area. This defining moment was to prove instrumental to our future success.
With MMG now growing rapidly with a formidable and experienced management team the name of the game was expansion. Having cornered the Dundee market MMG started to set its sights further afield and open an office in Perth.
MMG, now a well-known Scottish accountancy firm continues to explore new opportunities and starts a Joint Venture with Verus Wealth. From this point forward MMG’s increasingly successful clients would have expert guidance on wealth management.
With the bricks and mortar struggling to keep up with MMG’s growth it was again time to find a new home. The practice moves from Reform Street to a new office suite in Bell Street.
By MMG was operating multiple regional offices across the heart of Scotland. With each office growing fast we kept the removal industry afloat by once again relocating to larger offices in New Road for our practice in Forfar.
2012 saw another key defining moment in our history. Our name would finally be made complete when John Archbold’s practice merged with MMG on this year to form MMG Archbold. MMGA could now boast another base of operations in Montrose.
2016 saw MMGA straining at the seams again and needing more space for the growing team. A purchase of the floor downstairs saw the Montrose office get a lovely new extension.
