Introduction to MMP

MMP are Chartered Certified Accountants based in Kent. With over 2,000 clients and with offices in Ashford, Whitstable, Tenterden and Broadstairs we are well placed to provide expert knowledge and friendly advice for businesses and individuals.

Every client’s needs are different, and so we take the time to listen to you and learn about your needs and requirements. For example, we won’t recommend any particular accounting software solution unless it will greatly improve your existing efficiency and is cost effective.

Martin Ades – FCCA

Director and audit partner

I am director and senior partner here at MMP and I am responsible for the overall practice, though predominently I am based at our Ashford (Kent) office. As the designated audit partner, I oversee the firm’s audit clients, which means I get to be involved with many of our larger sized businesses.

As client manager to many of our smaller sized clients, this means that I oversee the activities of many of our smaller clients too, which gives me a much broader view of the firm’s activities than would normally be expected of a senior partner in a busy accountancy practice.

My involvement in MMP, from its humble beginnings to the organisation it is today, has meant that I have been fortunate enough to see it grow significantly in success over the years. In particular it is most gratifying to hear from so many people that the level of service that we provide is highly regarded.

My role at MMP is director and finance partner (since 1999) having worked for more than 30 years in the accountancy profession. I manage both the Whitstable and Broadstairs offices and effectively deal with all administrative matters for the Practice. I work very closely with clients ensuring that all communications are dealt with promptly and effectively. My main strengths are understanding of client needs, together with the ability to converse with them from many different backgrounds, whether building subcontractors or managing directors of successful SME businesses.

Office Manager (Broadstairs, Kent) and accountant

Having joined MMP in 1998, I currently manage the Broadstairs office (which I helped to set up in 2008) and to work very closely with local clients and businesses.  There is a great opportunity for business expansion in this area.  I specialise in business startups and pride myself on being able to provide all clients with clear sound advice in all areas of their business together with continuing to provide the level of service they have come to expect.

Martin Cutmore - FCA

Senior accountant and audit manager

As the Audit Manager for the firm, I am responsible for most of the audit planning, processes and field work for some of our largest clients, and ultimately ensuring compliance with the latest Financial Reporting and Auditing guidelines. I have a portfolio of other clients with whom I deal with on a day to day basis, covering sole traders to large organisations (those not necessarily requiring an audit).  Although audit thresholds have increased in recent years, we still have regular enquiries for businesses wishing to have their accounts audited by MMP.
