Who we help
Watching our clients overcome adversity, grow and succeed is why we do what we do. Here are just some examples of how our business advice has made the impossible, possible.
I don’t do anything without talking to Macalvins first. I trust them implicitly and value their judgement across every aspect of my business.
Dr Roy Sennett has been running his own dental practice in Ealing for over 20 years, 15 of which he has worked with Macalvins.
Roy initially instructed Macalvins for assistance with basic accounts work but quickly realised they could offer a great deal more. Macalvins created a plan that included an initial restructure which allowed for the sale of the first floor general practice, closely followed by the second floor dental implant practice. Now, only the third floor remains, which Dr Sennett uses for his private office during the week.
Within the next 3 to 5 years all the loose ends will be tied up and the retirement plan complete. From that point on, Macalvins will continue to assist Roy with personal affairs.
Macalvins go beyond the basic compliance services; with their sound and trusted business advice it was possible to turn our business dream into a reality.
Quizchoice Limited is a Pharmacy; the company was established in February 1983 at 114 Upper Richmond Road, Putney. At the time they also owned two other leasehold premises trading under Regents Pharmacy and Simmonds Pharmacy.
Quizchoice were previously with a non-proactive accountancy firm and came to Macalvins in 1999 looking for more than the basic compliance service. They wanted sound business advice that they could trust.
Macalvins helped to purchase a fourth leasehold pharmacy, run as an associate company, assisted with the sale of Regent and Simmonds Pharmacies and went on to help Quizchoice acquire the freehold property 124 Upper Richmond Road. This left the company in a much better position financially.
Macalvins has also aided the company’s growth, helping it become more efficient by providing management information and tax planning advice.
Macalvins are the cornerstone of my business and my trusted advisors.
PR4 is a public relations consultancy that has been operating for 14 years.
They have been with Macalvins from inception who have provided full service from bookkeeping, payroll and strategic advice. In 2011 when owner manager Christina had her first child, the business needed to change shape.
Christina and Macalvins sat down and began to fashion a plan that would allow the business to function but release some of the pressures and constraints. The plan included the creation of referral deals with other agencies and also the closure of the London office and staff redundancies.
Since the restructure the company has increased profitability by 65% and Christina now has the optimal work-life balance.
