Advisory

Whatever the nature of the challenges your business faces, we’ve probably seen it before; we’ve been doing this for more than 125 years. That means we’ve been helping people like you for over a century.

We work with you to help manage your business affairs, providing insightful advice to increase your profits, minimise your tax liabilities, plan for a secure financial future and achieve your business and personal goals.

Our clients seek out our advisory service for a number of reasons. First of all, we take our time to listen to you and get a full understanding of your needs. We have the right balance of technical expertise and practical experience to help find solutions that will help your business take off. Plus, we get a genuine buzz from the process and eventual achievements made as a result of our support.

We offer a full range of advisory services, and constantly challenge ourselves to lead and compete both with our technical know-how and the very latest industry thinking – including specialists across multiple sectors.

Our specialist team of trained facilitators can, through strategic planning sessions, help you identify those areas in your business that might be holding you back, discuss the options available to you, and help you decide on the best course of action.

We develop relationships that make it easy for you to share your aspirations and goals - both business as well as personal - and we do everything we can to help you achieve them.

Mandy MacKinnon

Business Solutions Manager

Mandy is an experienced chartered accountant and business strategist who excels at advising clients to overcome growth and profitability issues. As a founder member of the Firm’s Business Strategy Group, formed in 2001, Mandy has worked with a wide variety of SMEs from a range of sectors over the years. Business owners and management teams have benefitted from her help with developing robust strategic plans that have improved the value of their businesses.

Building on her experience and understanding of the needs of SMEs, Mandy has developed a successful “Understanding Finance” workshop which focusses on delivering personalised one to one or team training sessions to SMEs. These bespoke workshops offer clients a greater understanding of their own accounts and help them both in planning the strategic direction and in making the right commercial decisions for their business. The training is particularly popular with the second generation in family businesses or with new directors who are not fully confident in their ability to review financial information. Mandy believes it is not enough to just write a plan; to succeed it must be lived as well. The support she provides is geared to bridge that implementation gap.

As a member of Mindshop, a strategic leadership training organisation which operates globally, Mandy has access to a vast array of business tools and planning techniques that compliment her own training programmes. She is also an accredited growth coach with the Growth Accelerator service.
