“MMG Chartered Accountants are with me every step of the way. When you’re running a business, it’s important to surround yourself with people that know more than you, and for me, that’s the team at MMG. I feel in safe hands and can trust that my affairs are in order, not just the day-to-day compliance tasks but throughout the twists and turns life and business inevitably presents. It gives me peace of mind to know that they walk alongside me.”
– Struan Baptie, Managing Director, Struan Baptie Property Management
“I was introduced to MMG Chartered Accountants ten years ago by my bank manager. I had so many questions about my finances that my bank manager recognised my need for a local (and patient!) firm that I could call upon to guide me. As small business owners, we wear many hats. We adapt to become finance managers, business development executives to HR advisors on an hourly basis. It’s impossible to fulfil these roles with complete confidence, so to have trusted advisors that understand my business to help me work more efficiently is key to my ongoing success.
“Over the past ten years, I’ve stepped into the finance role more and more. The team at MMG is always at hand to answer my questions by taking the time to listen and support me in all aspects of my business, from monthly payroll services to strategic business advice.
“An important part of our journey has been exploring emerging technologies to make my life easier. Ten years ago, I could never have imagined that I could take a photo of a receipt on my phone that would automatically extract the relevant tax information, sync with my bank, and populate my annual returns. The only thing it doesn’t do is bake a cake to go with the coffee I’ve just bought! The efficiency this application brings to my day-to-day life is astounding. I’m supported to experiment further with apps that bring insight to forecasting to make a strategic decision based on what my numbers are telling me – it’s revolutionary. Being on the ball with new technology and the breadth of experience about what matters fuels MMG’s modern, proactive and dynamic approach.
“This approach extends to the entire team. The past few years have seen MMG grow and evolve, which is great. I no longer deal just with Paul, the managing partner. I have key teammates across the firm that support me who are just as helpful, experienced and supportive. I particularly appreciate Ryan’s support, who is always ready to take my call to understand my challenge and provide timely advice.”
