Accountants, Preston

Accountants McDade Roberts have ‘Expect more’ as their motto – and that’s truer than ever.

Alongside traditional accounting services, they now handle probate (settling a deceased person’s estate) and also write wills.

It’s due to the dynamism of new director Martin Garry, who passed exams in administering probate when the door was opened for non-solicitors in 2014. “It makes sense as we have a good understanding of our clients’ affairs and their intentions,” says Martin (left with fellow director John Stokes). “Probate can be complicated and add stress at an already difficult time. We are here to help and reduce the administrative burden on your family.”

Martin also highlighted their payroll services. For businesses with 10 employees or more, they handle all payroll issues, including paying staff through a secure BACS facility, pension auto-enrolment and Real-Time Information reporting.

Another departure is financial services – three independent financial advisors help with all aspects of finance, savings and investment.

Martin, 31, may be the new generation but he’s a staunch advocate of the firm’s friendly approachability. An amazing 96 per cent of clients gave McDade Roberts above average for friendliness in a recent customer survey.

“I’ve been with the firm since 2009,” says Martin. “It really does come across that we have good relationships with clients based on trust and friendliness, as well as offering a professional service.”  


McDade Roberts was founded by Philip McDade and Alan Roberts who joined forces to buy a building on Blackpool Road in 1998. They have always aimed to be easily approachable and speak the language of their clients – a remarkable 96 per cent awarded them above average for friendliness in a recent customer survey. McDade Roberts has since grown from a staff of 13 to 40, with four branches and 1,500 clients covering one-man bands to firms with turnovers up to £50 million. They also advise individuals on personal tax issues. The firm has managed to keep its friendliness as it has expanded – and is proud that 80 per cent of new business comes from recommendation. All the directors give out their mobile phone numbers so they are contactable out of hours. Ring for a free first consultation.


Pensions are daunting in their complexity – especially if you’re an employer pushing the issue of paying compulsory pensions to the back of your mind. It may cost you dearly. Starting now, more than one million companies with fewer than 50 staff will face a fine of £400 and a steep daily penalty if they do not get things right. Auto-enrolment will affect firms as small as a plumber and his mate. “Between 2015 and 2017, a staggering 51,134 companies per month will have to enrol their staff,” says manging director Kevin Carey,, of accountants McDade Roberts. “One of these companies could be yours but the good news is that we are here to help.” The Fulwood-based firm has a team of people ready to take questions and has upgraded its software to cope. Kevin added: “The other good news is that we are a very friendly bunch and pride ourselves on our down-to-earth advice. Call us – the first consultation is always free so there is nothing at all to lose.”
