Chris set up Maslins Accountants a decade ago. Initially trying (and failing!) to be everything to everyone, a year in they teamed up with FreeAgent to work with freelancers and contractors. Now approaching 10 staff, they have a keen focus on helping clients spend as little time as possible on their accounting affairs, whilst still gaining a strong understanding of the key numbers.

He also helped set up MVL Online Ltd jointly with a licensed insolvency practitioner ~7 years ago, making Members Voluntary Liquidations an affordable tax planning opportunity. Despite being in a small niche and run by a handful of people, they regularly rank around 10th nationwide based on number of liquidation appointments, appearing alongside the Big Four and other household names.
