“Professional Yet Personable”

“I've been fortunate enough to know Mark Buckmaster and Master Accounting Limited for more than 14 years now. They're not just my accountants – they're valued friends too. Throughout this time, Mark has impeccably managed a wide array of financial matters for me, from personal finances to company accounts and payrolls. Despite the intricate nature of these tasks, Mark's attention to detail and dedication never wavers. Mark has always demonstrated an exceptional willingness to go the extra mile for us. He's travelled to London for our board meetings and many other important discussions, a level of commitment that's rare in my experience with previous accountants. Beyond his professional skills, what really makes working with Mark a joy is his down-to-earth and very approachable nature. Despite his busy schedule, he always makes time to pick up the phone and address any issues or provide me with invaluable accounting advice. His warmth and friendliness make each interaction feel more like a conversation with a friend rather than a formal business discussion. Over the years, I've come to rely heavily on Mark and Master Accounting Limited for a vast range of financial services. They've always delivered high-quality, reliable service with a personal touch that's hard to come by. Mark is not just an exceptional accountant but also a dear friend. I wholeheartedly recommend him and his firm Master Accounting Limited to anyone seeking a professional yet personable accounting service.”

“Quick, Accurate, and Responsive”

“I have been using Master Accounting for eight years. They have always been quick, accurate, and responsive. Although I am always getting my accounts to them at the last minute there has never been an issue. I would heartily recommend Mark and his team to any small business or sole trader.”

“Commercial Flexibility and Agility”

"Master Accounting is so much more than an accounting service. You're buying in many years of expertise drawn from the corporate world, offering meaningful insights and guidance on topics that are fundamental to the success of companies. We have used Master Accounting across several start-ups to access this expertise, their commercial flexibility and agility. Would highly recommend to any start-up that is seeking high-quality financial and governance support.”

“Saved Us a Small Fortune”

‘It has been such a pleasure to work with Mark, ably assisted by Rachel, over the past 8 years. From my first meeting with Mark in 2015 and working with him in both my roles as FD of an SME and Chairman of a small charity, Mark has continually provided us with outstanding and very timely service and has saved us a small fortune in both tax and fees. I have already recommended him to one or two close friends who have taken up his services and have every confidence his business will continue to grow as a result of his excellent reputation.”

Joe Palfreman


“Knowledgeable, Reliable, and Efficient”

“I have worked with Mark at Master Accounting Limited for a few years now and find him to be knowledgeable, reliable, and efficient. He is also someone who will work with you to find solutions to different accounting challenges. Mark is a very approachable and friendly guy, and his professional fees are also very fair and competitive. I highly recommend Mark and the team at Master Accounting.’

⦁ David Fairweather – CEO, Right Direction Business Group


“Invaluable Knowledge and Approach”

‘We discovered Master Accounting Limited via a recommendation back in 2020 and, as new business owners, we were seeking not just an accountant but someone to guide us in the right direction. We must say Mark’s knowledge and approach to setting up a limited business was, and still is, invaluable. His knowledge in this field is second to none, saving us not just time but thousands over the years. Mark has helped us understand and formulate a successful business and we will be forever grateful.”

James Hill – Raising The Standards Ltd


“Clear Practical Advice”

‘Mark & his team have been our accountants and advisors for over 10 years. They are professional, friendly and give clear practical advice.’

David Westhead, CEO, Blu Connection Ltd


“Above and Beyond”

“Having worked closely with Master Accounting Limited for some time, I feel that we could not put our payroll in better hands. They have gone above and beyond to ensure that our payroll is completed on time, with an exceptionally high accuracy despite various changes we have made within our business. Overall, you would never know that it is a separate business as Master Accounting act as though they are a department within our own company.’

Maxine Radcliffe – Baronie UK Limited


“Very Helpful and Supportive”

"Mark has been very helpful to us in various aspects of our work, and as a community business, he has been very supportive in offering us tailored solutions which have been cost-effective for our development. This has involved working with him on a Community Share Offer model which successfully raised the money required, he has also helped us to complete our accounts on a short timescale as well as giving us advice and bespoke training with accounting software so that we are better able to keep track of how our business is performing, along with keeping basic administration tasks in house. We look forward to continuing to work with Mark into the future."

Gavin Fletcher – Harborough Energy


“The Best Customer Service and Advice”

“I have used Master Accounting from the inception of my company more than 3 years ago. I have, to date, received the best customer service and advice I could have possibly hoped for. Mark looks after all my accounting needs from staff payroll to end-of-year figures leaving me free to do what I do best and grow my business. I had not run my own business up until this point so was very inexperienced in all areas that deal with the accounting side. I need not have worried as Mark has pointed me in the right direction and given me the advice that has enabled me to keep my outgoings to a minimum. I would not hesitate to recommend Master Accounting. I look forward to many more years working with Mark and his company."

Andrew Dalby – Managing Director, Live Labels Ltd


Very Quick and Efficient

"Having used Master Accounting to discuss the merits of becoming a limited company and explaining the process of becoming an incorporated business, Mark was very quick and efficient in setting up the business for me. His experience, knowledge, and professionalism gave me the confidence that I had selected the right company to do this work."

James Garner – Director, Tectos-UK Ltd


“Handled Payroll Exceptionally Well”

"Mark had already been appointed to assist with the month-end process in doing the management accounts in our chemical adhesives business. His remit was extended to payroll covering almost 200 employees, of which the clear majority were hourly paid direct employees. The shift patterns were relatively routine, but overtime rules were more complex, and Mark handled the payroll exceptionally well to strict deadlines. He took the headache away from me at the busiest time of the month and let me focus on financial and operational issues under distressed trading circumstances at the time. This proved that outsourcing payroll is more valuable to the business in freeing me up as FD to attend to performance issues rather than worrying about the minor cost of outsourcing payroll itself. Mark also provided a payroll database extract so I could keep very precise control of the labour costs and associated analysis. I enjoyed working with Mark and would work with him again."

David Ladley – Finance Director (2010-2011), Chemence Limited


“Minimal Fuss and Accurate to Tight Deadlines”

"Mark was engaged to do the payroll for our chilled pastry factory in Corby during this period immediately following my departure from Chemence. We ran various overlapping 4-on, 4-off shift patterns for the factory, which also had significant absence issues to handle in working out the correct hours. The overtime rules were also awkward, and the variety of deductions made this a complex payroll for about 120 employees, of which maybe 30 were staff and therefore simpler. Mark handled this engagement with minimal fuss being on time and accurate to tight deadlines. We reviewed several times each month to ensure accuracy and his work schedule accommodated our timeframes regardless of the time of day. I would have no hesitation in using him again."

David Ladley – Finance Director (2011-2015), BakeAway Limited


“Great Value for Money”

"Mark was retained to do the payroll at Hawes, so clearly I did not have any hesitation in engaging his services again. We had a factory of hourly paid employees on a variety of more complex and variable shifts with some very precise and extensive overtime rules arising from legacy issues in previous years. In addition, with a largescale reduction in headcount over the year, there were many issues with payroll for leavers and the importance of accuracy for leavers is even more paramount, especially with the risk of overpayment and possible bad debts. Mark learned these rules well and we had disciplined review procedures pre-and post-net pay calculation to ensure accuracy and completeness. Mark yet again did a fantastic job on tighter deadlines with 175 employees. He is also great value for money and can be relied upon to get the job done when you need it done, putting himself and his staff at your disposal when your timescale dictates."

David Ladley – Finance Director (2015-2016), Hawes Signs Limited


“Excellent Service”

"I was very pleased with the service I received from Master Accounting Limited. At all times, they provided a professional excellent service."

Deborah Wale – Nightingale Network Services Ltd (New Company Setup)


“Top of Their Game”

"Whilst we’ve only been working with Mark and Rachel for a short time, they are extremely well connected and came to us well-recommended. They have already shown us that they are on top of their game."

Jonathan Palfreyman – Finance Director, One Vision Health Ltd


“Easy and Painless”

"Master Accounting Limited has been doing the House of Vantage payroll for some years now. When we received our letter from the Pensions Regulator, informing us of our staging date, we immediately contacted Mark at Master Accounting who came in and explained the auto-enrolment pension scheme to the senior management team. He then came to see us again and spoke to both shifts, explaining auto-enrolment and answering the many questions asked by the staff. We had no hesitation in using Master Accounting to set up our auto-enrolment pension scheme to ensure our company was compliant. The set-up fee was extremely reasonable, and the process was easy and painless for us."

Thomas Mann – House of Vantage


“Efficient, Cost-Effective, and Responsive”

"We have used Master Accounting for accountancy and payroll services for many years and have found Mark to be extremely personable as well as efficient, cost-effective and responsive. I would recommend his company to anyone who appreciates a complete professional and reasonably priced service."

Christina Roberts – Group Human Resources Manager, Chemence Ltd


“Great Service”

"‘Robinson Agriculture Ltd/Ashley Farm Shop would highly recommend using Master Accounting Limited. They provide us with a great service, always ready with help as and when needed. They do all of our payroll very efficiently on a monthly basis, as well as our annual accounts, and have arranged the Nest Pension for us. It is a personal service, and they are always reliable."

Sue Robinson – Director, Robinson Agriculture Ltd
