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.

Dundee in 1927
1927

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.

In 1937, the year of the Royal Arch, a key partnership took place that helped shape MMG’s destiny. Edward Miller of Aitken Miller followed Gellatly and merged with Dickson, McIntyre and Gellatly (DMG) to form Miller, McIntyre & Gellatly. These acquisitions propelled the now named MMG to grow at an impressive rate.

1945

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.

2005

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.

2008

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

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.

2022

MMG officially grows from a team of 35 to a team of 67 as it officially merges with Finlaysons, Stewart Tough and Walker Harris to operate under its new name: MMG Chartered Accountants.
