About Mark

What I Do

I help accountants to build better practices.
To run the practice they want, the way they want.

Focus on what it is you want personally – enough money to enjoy the lifestyle you want, enough time to do the things you want with people that you care about and to be less stressed. Work out your personal goals and then put a plan in place to achieve those goals using your business to help you get there.

Running my own successful accountancy practice means I see the real issues facing accountants on a daily basis. Working too many hours, too much inefficiency, poor pricing, not attracting the right clients, not converting clients, not having the right team, not having a plan to address it all and get them back on track.

I’m able to provide practical coaching, advice and support based on real-life experiences I’ve faced. I won’t try and sell a solution that hasn’t either worked for me or worked for another client.

It’s your business – you decide how to run it on your terms.

Alongside this, I run an award-winning accountancy practice that works with ambitious business owners to help them achieve their goals.

The approach is the same help them achieve money, time and mind freedom.

Earn enough to enjoy the lifestyle they want, have enough time to spend it doing the things they want and having peace of mind through knowing their accounts and taxes are being dealt with.

About Mark

I’m an Award Winning Chartered Accountant and I run my own accountancy practice; Telfords Chartered Accountants; and work with ambitious business owners to help them achieve their goals.

I founded Telfords Chartered Accountants as I could see that many small businesses were not getting the business support and advice they needed from their accountant. Regular financial and commercial support throughout the year is essential to help a business achieve the results the owners want.

By using cloud software from the very start we have been able to provide a year-round service which helps businesses be the best they can.

I have been using Xero since 2010 and we encourage all clients to use it as we believe it is the best accounting software to help them run their businesses.

I have now started working with other accountants to help them run a more profitable, efficient and enjoyable practice, providing a higher level of service to their clients. Drawing on the real life experience, the ups and downs of running my own practice.

I believe that we as accountants now have a fantastic opportunity to run our own practices. The opportunities provided by technology and the digitalisation of the tax system are huge and mean that now, more so than ever before we can run our practices on our terms, how we want, when we want.
