Running a successful hotel and restaurant is not the usual route into the accountancy industry. However, this is the exact career path trodden by Bryan Mayles, founder of BM Accounting Solutions.

Bryan launched BM Accounting Solutions in January 2008 and has enjoyed continued success and growth. However, it was Bryan’s experience within the hotel sector which gave him the grounding to confidently launch his venture into accountancy solutions.

After qualifying in hotel management Bryan gained valuable skills in man management and financial controls working throughout the UK. Bryan purchased the Boathouse Hotel in Sudbury, Suffolk out of receivership in 1993 where he further developed his financial skills such as budgetary control and system analysis. During his time at the Boathouse Bryan learned how to use packages such as Sage Line 50 and became a Microsoft Certified Professional.

“When you run your own business you quickly appreciate the importance of the accurate and timely accounting information that can be provided by Sage 50. It can really help you when making decisions about running your business successfully,” says Bryan.

Bryan sold the Boathouse in 2007 and the rest, as they say, is history. Welcome to BM Accounting Solutions.
