About Access Irrigation Ltd
Access Irrigation provides design, supply and servicing of commercial quality irrigation systems for the horticultural, landscaping, green and sports market sectors.

Our experienced designers advise on all aspects of commercial irrigation, and with a large components warehouse we offer fast and efficient delivery times which ensure that the systems utilization is maximised.
Why did we choose to work with Magma Chartered Accountants?
The weather can dramatically affect our business and Magma identified the potential for an asset restructuring exercise which provided a financially more robust foundation which has proved to be highly effective over recent years. We are now far more resistant to the effects of adverse weather conditions and can manage the business with financial stability. The pressures and stress of cash flow have been reduced and we can manage our business on a longer term basis rather than day to day. Within Magma they have a wide range of skills and expertise that can be utilised to resolve most corporate issues, with also solutions to tax and manpower concerns which helps with the management of the business.

About Greentree Enterprises Ltd
Greentree Enterprises Ltd operates four care homes in the Coventry, Leamington Spa and Leicester areas. Our care homes have been chosen for their location – they offer clients the ability to remain as independent as possible. The environments are developed to ensure clients are able to make the most of our English weather to get out and relax. All our locations offer residents the right mix of facilities from tailored accommodation through to attractive landscaped gardens and are no more than 500 metres from the nearest bus stop and all offer plenty of visitor parking. We have a passion to provide our clients with the best care possible and strongly believe in our business strategy that “we don’t train people to be caring – we employ caring people”.
Why did we choose to work with Magma Chartered Accountants?
Operating four independent care homes, we were concerned that our structure was not as efficient as could be, and we were looking for professional accountants who could advise us on the best corporate structure. Magma Accountants were able to provide good, sound advice which was also forward thinking. We were able to restructure our shares which provided significant advantages in remuneration payments and in our tax planning. In addition Magma has solved a number of accountancy software issues and continues to support our staff. We also received invaluable assistance with our corporate compliance and planning for recent pension regulations.

About Rugby High School
Rugby High School is a girls grammar school specialising in Science and Languages, rated as outstanding in the latest Ofsted report. In 2011, in common with many state funded schools we were faced with a new set of challenges placed upon us by the need to convert to an Academy. The changes placed many demands on us, but in particular we had to address both the legal and the financial / accounting issues which is when we turned to Magma.
Why Did We Choose To Work with Magma Accountants?
We needed help and guidance from an accountancy practice with expertise and a proven track record in the education sector, in particular with schools changing to Academy status. Being in the public sector we needed to demonstrate financial prudence in selecting our accountancy partner and put our ‘project’ out to tender. Magma presented the most competitive proposition, which combined to their being local to us in Rugby saw them being retained by Rugby High School in April 2011.
Business issues we’ve addressed
Ensuring legal and financial compliance within the new Academy framework Developing the accountancy software to meet these needs Outsourcing payroll services Providing Year End accountancy to support a multi-agency environment Delivering clear budgetary information throughout the academic year
What have Magma Accountants done for you since being appointed in 2011?
As an Academy school we don’t have complex tax planning issues to address, but Magma has efficiently provided the school with payroll and year end accounting services. Will Lodder, Partner at Magma delivered a very comprehensive and illuminating presentation to the senior staff when we converted. The presentation and subsequent services have contributed to our success in the initial conversion to an Academy, we have addressed all of our financial responsibilities and feel confident that the accounting side of our establishment is well catered for.
What would you say to anyone else converting to an Academy and thinking of using Magma?
We are very pleased with the service we have received from Magma, we regularly recommend Magma Accountants to others and will continue to do so. As will be apparent, the benefits of working with a long term partner who really gets to know your organisation and circumstances cannot be underestimated.

This ‘cloud’ accounting package is easy to use and provides us with management information available whenever and wherever at the touch of a button.  The support we have received to help us adopt Xero has been invaluable and above all rapid – when we needed help we got it. Magma offers the expertise and support of a large practice but are still small enough to provide the personal service. If your Account Manager doesn’t know the answer, there is always someone in the office who does.  Without their support we are sure our growth would not have been so outstanding, or as pain free.  Working with Magma you will have a well organised and reliable group of financial experts working as part of YOUR management team.
