About us

Our Story

Max Accountants was founded in 2011 by Martin Hickman, taking advantage of the advent of cloud-based applications, such as Xero. Since then, we have increased our focus on providing services to the tech-community, who now make up over 90% of our customer base.

As a result, we have a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by this sector and also the range of opportunities available to them, such as R&D tax credits, (S)EIS tax reliefs and grant funding.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the accounting partner of choice for early-stage technology and high-growth companies. Combining our specialist knowledge and expertise with the latest cloud-based technology, we aim to deliver scalable accounting support and tailor our services to meet your needs.

We also provide for the development, growth and accountability of our team members, as we know that surrounding ourselves with talented, driven people who share our values is the key to success; we want to ensure that our people stay for the long term.

Our Guarantee

We are dedicated to providing online accounting, tax support and CFO services for ambitious businesses and we exist to give founders the time and financial support needed to make smarter decisions and scale their start-up.

We strive for perfection and take pride in the quality and integrity of our work. We aim to deliver above and beyond our customers’ expectations and have a proven track record of supporting our clients with good value, high quality advice.
