More about Mahmood

Ever heard of numbers don’t lie? Well, let me re-affirm: they really don’t! Numbers tell you precisely what’s happening in your business at any point in time, so that you can act fast and make the necessary decisions to propel yourself forward.

My business life of over 28 years has largely comprised supporting businesses and entrepreneurs, as well as social enterprises and charities, in achieving their business goals.

After an initial career in teaching, I forayed into the hospitality sector as a divisional accountant, working in the capacity for a good 5.5 years. It was a wide and varied experience and I loved every minute of it, although multiple qualifications later, I changed course and settled on accounting, which I loved even more! While working for firms as a professional accountant was great, I felt I had much more to offer.

The launch of my accounting business

February 1995 saw the launch of my own accounting business and I’ve never looked back since.

I come from a rather large family of nine brothers & sisters collectively, although we had very little money starting out. Bettering ourselves was the only way we knew of surviving. I know what it’s like to rise from an almost rock-bottom position. I can totally relate to that and that’s how businesses can benefit greatly from me – I’ve been there and I can help them avoid the mistakes which can lead to a “rock-bottom” situation!

Do you know what drives me though? The idea that we can always do better – that there’s always, always room for improvement. Nothing in life should be taken for granted and every precious moment you have can be utilised to better your financial position. I understand how people desire (and benefit more from) personal values, thoughts and experiences, rather than just boring old advice for a fixed hourly rate which may or may not help them get a handle on their business finances.

My clients can identify with me instantly because I use my own professional and personal experiences to relate to their situation, and then authentically produce a solution which helps them get on track, keeping their cash flow robust throughout the year as a result!
