About Us

Set up in 2008 by the current director, Melanie, MAP Accountants continue to support clients across the UK particularly across the South Hams, Torbay and Teignbridge.

We retain a small team of professionals with an administration team working alongside us to ensure that we can continue to provide a personal service by getting to know our clients and working closely with them to not only help them fulfil their statutory requirements but to also help and support them in the world of business.

We understand that running a small business is challenging and we provide a service that clients know they can turn to us for support on any of the many topics that arise in the course of business.

Melanie Allday


I started MAP Accountants in 2008 to follow my passion for helping owners on their journey through the world of business. As a business owner myself I now understand the importance of having a good support network around you and having people that you can ask for advice on all business matters, I may not have all the answers, but I will know someone that will!

I am passionate about my business and providing a friendly, personal service. By maintaining a small team of professional individuals this enables us to build good working relationships with our clients and provide the service which I believe not only helps our clients to fulfil their accountancy and taxation requirements but also provides them with support when they need someone to turn to.

I am lucky to have worked alongside Sally and Beki for many years and have such a great team supporting me and the clients.

Sally Millman

Payroll Manager

I joined MAP Accountants in 2011 in an admin and bookkeeping role, over the years I have had the opportunity to learn from Mel and her expertise, and I am now the Payroll Manager.

I think it is important to have a good working relationship with the clients and have found I have developed this with regular contact, whether that is to do with payroll, bookkeeping, vat or accounts.

I make sure that employers are aware of their responsibilities and are compliant with HMRC, The Pensions Regulator, and that all submissions and returns are submitted in a timely manner.

My aim is to help our clients with their needs and reduce the stress that often comes with trying to run your own business whilst keeping the bookkeeping up to date and sticking to deadlines.

The team at MAP accountants have been a great support to my business in terms of bookkeeping, PAYE, end of year accounts preparation and for general support with any business related issues which crop up from time to time. A long standing client of MAP Accountants, I am happy to recommend them to other small business owners.

Personal attention and support is always given, either by Mel or her team – almost as if you’ve got your own in house accounts team to hand!  

– Director, Retail and Wholesale Business query too small...

Working with Mel and the team at MAP is a pleasure. No query too small, no question too silly. I feel I can always pick up the phone or pop into the office and be welcomed by a cheery person who can explain things in a way I actually get. Their on-going support has really helped us grow as a business and takes the stress out of dealing with HMRC, running payroll or pensions. Definitely breaking the mould on what to expect from an accountant, approachable, fun & engaging. I recommend MAP to all my friends who run their own businesses and who often tell me they really struggle to communicate or understand what their own accountants are on about.

...excellent service...

Running a small business means that cash flow is often a key aspect of good management. MAP Accountants & Business Advisors not only provide an excellent service which gives me the opportunity to contact them throughout the year, usually without having to pay additional fees, but also I can pay my bill on a monthly basis and so spread the cost throughout the year.
