Accounts Systems Implementation
Accounts Systems Implementation
Combined IT and accountancy expertise to support the set up and implementation of accounts systems and accounting software such as SAGE and XERO.
In response to client needs we formed a partnership dedicated to computer solutions in 1997. Whilst there were and are many accountancy software providers, too many of our clients were running into problems in set up, or in adapting accounts systems to fit their unique requirements.
The reasons for moving onto or upgrading accounts systems and accounting software range from the need to ensure financial compliance, through to automation of key activities (such as invoicing and credit control) and the provision of management information.
Due to our IT experts and their years of experience, we can ensure a smooth implementation, transfer of data and customisation. And thanks to our accountancy experts, with their years of experience, we can make sure you have considered functionality such as nominal ledgers, trial balances and future requirements to ensure the system is robust and fit for purpose.
Whether you are looking for advice on which accounts systems to use online or offline, we can help you if you are:
- moving onto accounting software for the first time
- planning to implement a specialist area, such as international currency control, or
- migrating your accounting function from one system to another.
The main accounts systems we work with are Sage and Xero.
Our many years’ expertise in the various Sage software options means that we can advise upon the best package for you across their range and support smooth transition to different packages.
As a Xero partner, we can assist you and your business with all areas of Xero, from the setting up the accounting and payroll process through to data entry and support.
We understand that whilst out-of-the-box or off-the-shelf commercial software will often satisfy your business’s needs to a large extent, there may be requirements specific to your activities that need to be met with bespoke solutions.
We have many years of experience in leveraging the adaptability of Sage software, in particular, enabling us to provide tailored enhancements. We have worked with many clients to provide interfaces to other business systems, as well as adding revised functionality to make the software work the way clients want. We also produce specialised reporting though customisation of Sage reports and through development of sophisticated Excel spreadsheet analysis of data.

“Without a doubt, I recommend speaking with The MGroup. They are very knowledgeable, very understanding, have a good feel for our business and accommodate us quickly when we need help. We frequently get approaches from other accountancy firms and I tell them that we have no need to look elsewhere as everything is catered for very efficiently by Peter Smith and his team. I couldn't fault them."
Peter Mace, Managing Director, TT Concrete

“Fortunately, when we were ready to expand our company to the UK we were referred to The MGroup. As a North America based enterprise we had little knowledge of UK business and tax matters. The MGroup helped us with everything from compliance and payroll regulations to establishing a banking relationship. The staff members are very responsive and we continue to rely on their support as our UK operations grow.”
Laurie Diaz, V.P. Corporate Controller, Yardi Systems
“Mark has given me excellent Corporate Finance advice and support for 3 years and I would thoroughly recommend him. He is very tenacious in finding suitable companies to acquire and then good at negotiating and putting deals together, including the all important funding. He is also very innovative in finding solutions to issues arising along the way.”

“We moved to The MGroup as our business had grown from a small to medium sized one and we needed more comprehensive support on all accountancy matters and detailed support with our SAGE systems. We have been really pleased with the service we have received from The MGroup and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other businesses looking for an all round accountancy service.”
