About Us

M. A. Walker & Associates was established in 2017 in Paignton, Devon by Michelle Walker.  Michelle has a strong belief that accessing accountancy services should be both easy and cost effective for individuals and businesses alike and has brought this ethos to the business.  M. A. Walker & Associates offer a comprehensive, understandable, friendly and reliable service all at extremely competitive rates.

Prior to establishing M. A. Walker & Associates Michelle spent 12 years working in private accountancy practice.  Alongside managing the office and employees Michelle acted as a senior accountant undertaking the full range of accountancy services for a wide and varied client base.

We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your accounting requirements which can be undertaken at your premises, where located within Devon, at our registered office or electronically via telephone or video conference and will then provide a fixed price quotation to undertake the agreed work.

If you decide to come on board with M. A. Walker & Associates we will take away all of the hassle and will contact your previous Accountants to get all the information required to make the switch as easy and smooth as possible for you, all you will need to do is provide your permission.

Michelle made the decision when establishing the business that she did not want the costs of offices which would just end up being passed on to her clients.  The team therefore work remotely using technology to keep in contact and share information.

With a focus on reducing our impact on the environment M. A. Walker & Associates try to utilise electronic methods wherever possible but do offer collection and drop off service for paperwork in Paignton, Torquay, Brixham, Newton Abbot, Totnes and surrounding areas where required.



Can’t recommend M. A. Walker & Associates highly enough. I was completely let down by my previous accountant and Michelle took the time to understand my needs and sort out my end of year business accounts quickly and efficiently.


“Being in the health care industry we hold a large amount of personal health information.  Matt has worked with us to develop all of our information security policies and processes to ensure that we are not only legally compliant but can demonstrate to our customers that we care about their information.


We have worked with M.A. Walker & Associates since Michelle set-up the company and couldn’t be happier.  Michelle and her team are there when I need them and offer expert support and advice.  I could not have dealt with all the COVID situation without their guidance on grants and support available.


M. A. Walker & Associates supported us from the moment we took over the business from the original founder. We didn’t realise quite what a state the books were in when we took over but this was very quickly rectified. This meant we were able to chase up a number of missing payments that had been completely overlooked historically. Michelle and team now deal with all our bookkeeping, invoicing and accounting enabling us to focus on what we are good at and run our business.


Both to facilitate our approach to remote working and to ensure that all our client’s data fully protected and available we extensively make use of cloud-based (online) software and file sharing services.

Using the latest Microsoft technologies all our data and that of our client's is stored securely in the Microsoft cloud.  This means that the data is always available no matter where we are or how we connect.  Alongside this regular back-ups add that additional level of protection.
