Mark Hall FCA CTA

Managing Director

Mark set up MJH Accountants in 2012, originally working out of his home with around 30-40 clients. In 2014 he bought the firm’s current premises on Woodplumpton Road and he embarked on the journey to grow MJH Accountants into the firm it is today. While the firm has grown, Mark has stayed committed to ensuring all clients still receive the same level of service today as they did when he first started.

As a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser Mark has a wealth of expertise our clients can call upon. His knowledge ensures clients don’t have to pay a penny of tax more than they should.
