Our Vision


“We envision a world where people understand their accounts, where numbers aren’t something to be afraid of and where people are confident about their business finances. A world where visiting your accountant is as pleasant an experience as dining at your favourite restaurant.”

Simple, Smart + Supportive

When we speak to business owners about what they want from an accountant, we keep on hearing the same things. Accounting today needs to be about more than doing the compliance stuff. Clients want an accountant who understands their business, communicates in plain English, and helps them to grow.

Here’s a few of the things you’ll get as a client of A|M Accounting:

These events give you the opportunity to mix with like-minded people. They’re the innovators; non-conformist business owners who aren’t afraid of challenging the status quo.
Our Founder, Alasdair McGill, was named as one of Scotland’s top ten digital disruptors in 2016, so it’s no surprise that technology should be such a big part of our service. That includes Xero, FreeAgent, ReceiptBank and other apps for our clients, as well as back office systems like Slack, Trello, and Senta that we use to run our business.

However, we’ll only use technology when it helps and improves things for you. We understand that using tech for tech’s sake isn’t a smart thing to do….

We’re passionate about good coffee, and if you happen to visit our offices, then you’ll see what we mean. Pop in for a chat, we’ll get the coffee ready, let’s talk about your business. There’ll probably be cake involved too…
You need to know how your business is performing, and the accounts should tell you that. You also need to understand what those numbers you’re looking at mean. No problem – we’ll help you choose the best software solution for your business, and then guide you through the numbers. We’ll not try to turn you into an accountant, but we’ll make sure that you know what you need to know.
As a client of A|M Accounting you’ll get the opportunity to hear from industry leaders on a regular basis. Learn from the best, find out what’s happening at the cutting edge, and then we’ll help you use that knowledge to drive your business forward.
Like most professions, Accounting has its own jargon. You won’t find any of that here, no siree! If you do hear us using jargon, then you have permission to flog us……

Switching Accountant? It’s never been easier!
