Mark Hall FCA CTA

Managing Director

Mark set up MJH Accountants in 2012, originally working out of his home with around 30-40 clients. In 2014 he bought the firm’s current premises on Woodplumpton Road and he embarked on the journey to grow MJH Accountants into the firm it is today. While the firm has grown, Mark has stayed committed to ensuring all clients still receive the same level of service today as they did when he first started.

As a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser Mark has a wealth of expertise our clients can call upon. His knowledge ensures clients don’t have to pay a penny of tax more than they should.

Mark is an avid fan of both Preston North End and Lancashire County Cricket Club.

Chelsea Atkinson BSC (Hons) Chelsea Atkinson BSC (Hons)
Trainee Accountant
Having graduated from Lancaster University with a First Class Honours degree in Chemistry, Chelsea decided to take up a career in accountancy, joining MJH in July 2019. To many the link between chemistry and accountancy isn’t immediately apparent. However, the analytical skill and eye for detail needed in chemistry will stand Chelsea in good stead. Chemistry’s loss is certainly accountancy’s gain.

Chelsea loves to stay active by playing hockey and walking her dogs, her hockey career has seen her captain at both school and university level and represent Lancashire.
